Is It Really Soap or Detergent in the Shower Stall?

Mary Tylor Naturals has done it again with another amazing product: The Healthy Soap®. This amazing liquid soap is made from natural ingredients that are sure to cleanse your body without all of the harsh chemicals that most commercial “soap” manufactures include in their ingredients (listed or not).

Soap, chemically a salt (C17H35COONa), has a unique ability to surround oil particles, dispersing them in water, and rinsing them away easily. Did you know that most of what is labeled as “soap” on the market today is NOT actually soap? Many of them are actually detergents or cleansers. The true definition of a soap, and to be regulated as a soap by the FDA (Food Drug Administration): is a product composed mainly of the “alkali salts of fatty acids”. The “alkali salts” is an alkali such as lye, potash; and the “fatty acids” are the oils used like coconut, olive, palm, etc.

Some people are concerned when they see “lye” listed as an ingredient in natural soaps, not knowing, that if their “soap” doesn’t have lye listed, it’s probably not soap! When an alkali, the lye, blends with fatty acids, the oils, the mixture goes through a process called saponification. This is a chemical process that changes the structure of both the alkali and fatty acids into what we know of as soap. Soap is formulated with more fatty acids than alkali or precisely formulated with exact amounts, so there is zero lye remaining after the saponification. So, toss those outdated memories of (great-)grandma’s lye-heavy soap burning your skin, there is easy access to soaping calculators that do all the math for even the most novice DYI soaper, far more the sophisticated equipment and tools available to businesses.

Mary Tylor Naturals selected the oils they used in their formulation carefully for their inherent cleansing action and their ability to do what they do naturally! Their ingredient list is very short but lovingly created, to include saponified Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, among others, as well as essential oils (that were added in after this incredible saponification process to preserve their essence).

Coconut Oil is known to be a highly cleansing oil that gives a high stable lather/bubble, Sweet Almond Oil is known to be gentle and is full of vitamin A and E, and Apricot Kernel Oil is also known to be high in vitamin A and E along with vitamin C. Mary Tylor Naturals is really holding true to their ‘Better Ingredients for a Better Life’ motto.

We will keep you in the loop when they release this amazing new product!
