Soap is watery

by Tammy Sessanna

When used with the correct sponge type, Liquid Soap Refill is very sudsy

When used with the correct sponge type, Liquid Soap Refill is very sudsy

Hello,
I am really trying to purchase more environmentally conscious products. However, I followed the directions for the mixture and find it very watery. I use a loofa to wash with and put a squirt of the solution...which goes right thru with no suds. Perhaps the soap bar is a better solution for me.

Advice?

Sponge suggestions for Liquid Soap Refill use in the shower
by: Wendy

Hi Tammy,

Thank you for your purchase.

Yes, making the switch to totally natural products is a big change. Many so called "natural" liquid soaps are not really natural at all. They use synthetic bases in standard gel detergents and use such names as "Body Wash" and "Shower Gel", which are descriptive product uses, but they are not soap. They can get away with being in the natural personal care category, by using natural essential oils for their aromas and good marketing.

Ithaca Soap is a traditional saponified coconut oil based soap, which results in a thin Castile like soap. Castile soap is a style of soap making, and refers to the Castile region of Spain where it originated, and is traditionally made from olive oil.

You are correct that the soap "goes right thru with no suds" when used with a loofa. If you want to use The Liquid Soap Refill as a body wash in the shower, it works best when used with a kitchen type sponge, which has a tighter cell structure and will hold the liquid soap in place so you have time to rub it around, thereby activating the soap sudsing action.

However, I do use a loofa when I use bar soap in the shower.

Thanks for asking!
Wendy
