The Cold Process Method

Gildewerk announces the Cold Process Method.

Gildewerk’s Cold Process Method marks a return to the basics of soap making and is hugely popular because it fulfils the present-day desire of people to use natural materials and leaves a lot of room for creativity.

This soap making method involves mixing plant-based oils and butters with lye (i.e. sodium hydroxide, NaOH). Together, the oils, butters and lye start the saponification process, after which nothing remains of the lye.

The saponification process produces natural glycerine, which has a highly soothing effect on the skin. This substance naturally occurs in every bar of Cold Process soap.

and other manufacturing methods is?
