At Earth Mama, we’re obsessed with clean ingredients. Where they came from. Whether or not they’re as organic as possible. How they work together to become effective, gentle herbal solutions for mamas and their babies.
This includes soap. We manufacture castile soap, and here’s why:
It’s soap-soap. True soap. Not detergent. And there’s a SCIENTIFIC difference, ya’ll.
Detergent is more intense than soap. It’s a synthetic blend of surfactant (to make it foam), emulsifier (to keep ingredients blended) and a preservative (to keep it from growing yeast, mold and bacteria).
Um. That’s a lot of stuff.
Meanwhile, castile soap is the real thing — it doesn’t need all that extra stuff. Castile soap is a saponified blend of acids and base that naturally creates foam, and doesn’t need to be preserved. Super simple, right? Plus, castile soap is “clean” as in organic with no questionable yucky stuff, and “clean” as in: it’s actual soap, that you can use to make all sorts of DIY household cleaning solutions — that are ridiculously easy, and will save you some cash.
And since we love you and we’re nice, here are those recipes. Enjoy!
