Benefits of oils used in wassail soap:
Coconut oil has been used for years to produce the bubbles all of us love to have in the soap we use. It complements the palm oil in producing a hard soap bar that lasts longer.
The use of palm oil in soap produces a hard and less water soluble bar of soap thus makes the bar last longer. It complements the coconut oil which produces the big fluffy bubbles. Palm oil cleans well and is very mild.
Olive oil has its own healing properties and is a great moisturizer. It holds the moisture close to the skin and forms a breathable barrier but does not block the skins ability to sweat or shed dead skin cells. Olive oil is very gentle on the skin and is great for those with a tendency to have sensitive skin. Olive oil has been used in the best soaps for centuries.
Sodium Hydroxide is a necessary ingredient in making a beautiful bar of soap. It is the reason the chemical reaction happens, changing the properties of the oils into the cleaning ability that a good bar of soap has.
Avocado oil contains protein, amino acids, and a relatively large amounts of vitamins A, D, and E, Because of this oils high amount of unsaponifiables (the part of the oil that does not react to the soap making process). It retains much of its original makeup. Avocado oil is obtained from the pulp of the avocado pear and is highly used in the cosmetic industry because of its moisturizing and healing attributes. It also helps regenerate cells and softens body issue, as well as its ability to heal scaly skin and scalps.
