A look at soap production in the past and today
In the old days medimix soap in Sri Lanka was prepared from tallow, tallow or cow fat (in Islamic countries) or pig fat (in non Islamic countries).
As we said above about the difference between pen and soap, the most important difference between pen and soap is the use of oil or fat in the structure of soap.
Today, to prepare this product, instead of using animal fat, they use vegetable oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, oil from certain fruits, oil obtained from nuts and other vegetable oils (the incredible properties of coconut oil for the skin read here).
Manufacturers also add fragrance, color, essential oils, some herbs and other ingredients to make their product attractive; Although many of these additives do not contribute to skin health.
The vegetable oils used in all kinds of soaps are:
Date kernel oil
Note: The use of these oils in the composition of soaps has created one of the most important differences between pen and soap
Herbal soaps sold around the world are usually high in glycerin.
Soaps produced using vegetable oils do not contain any combination of surfactants, they have a high pH and as a result can cause skin dryness.
In the preparation of herbal soaps, we try to use more herbal and natural compounds and avoid chemical compounds as much as possible.
