Natural Soap 100% Vegetal - Zero Waste - Ancestral Recipe

A logical, intelligent and necessary return to basics!

  • The vegetable soap from Laboratoire Géomer is made from one of the most noble basic ingredients: olive oil.
  • The saponification technique used is called cold saponification.
  • It is an ancestral technique dating from Roman times (around the year 300). Pharmacists of the time called these soaps by their Latin name: Sapo Hispaniensis (Spanish soap) or sapo castilliensis (Castile soap = region where this type of saponification was born).
  • Thanks to the Crusades, the manufacture of this soap spread to the entire Mediterranean region. Then to many parts of Europe and the Americas.

Cold saponification of olive oil:

  • Cold saponification is still little known today. Although its use dates back centuries and its virtues are immense. In Roman times, only royal families could afford this type of soap. Doctors prescribed it for anyone with sensitive or fragile skin. Very quickly dermatologists recommended it to people with psoriasis, eczema, cradle cap.
  • The cold saponification method (SAF) is not used by cosmetics manufacturers. Because this ancestral technique requires blocking a large stock of finished products during a period of cure (= drying) which requires patience for 6 weeks.

Manufacturing method:

  • Cold saponification is a technique that will create a chemical reaction between olive oil and sodium hydroxide (NAOH) = pure caustic soda in grains.

  • In antiquity, soda was used either of mineral origin or of vegetable origin. Since 1861, soda has been produced using an inexpensive process developed by the Belgian chemist: Ernest Solvay.
  • The soda is mixed with very precise proportions of water. This mixture rises quickly in temperature (+/- 85 ° C) to cool slowly.
  • Despite the name of cold saponification, olive oil is heated to around 35 ° C to be mixed with soda and water. Which will produce the appearance of natural glycerin. Excellent for the skin.
  • For skin comfort and in order to obtain a soap that does not break, olive oil is added at the end of production which will not undergo saponification = the super-fat
  • This mixture makes it possible, with stirring, to obtain a thick paste which, once ready, is poured into a mold.
