What is Super Fatted Soap?

Trace. See the drops resting on top?

Ever wonder what it means to SuperFat soap?  The term SuperFat refers to the percentage of oil that is left unchanged from the Lye when the soap is finished.  The amount of oil left in our finished soap is between 12 and 16 percent (depending on the soap), resulting in a super moisturizing and soothing bathing experience.

Superfatting our Down to Earth Shampoo Bar.

What we do with our Down To Earth Shampoo Bar is we SuperFat it with Kukui Nut and Jojoba Oils by adding them after the batch has traced;  Defined as “thick enough for drops to rest on top of mixture.”  At this point, most of the saponification process has occurred and oils you want to be fully present when using the bar can be added.  This effectively allows these two oils (Kukui Nut and Jojoba which are really beneficial to your hair and scalp) to be the ‘superfat’ in our shampoo bar! Let the food feeding skin and hair fest begin.
