About our Soaps
Green Frog Soap ingredients:
Green Frog Soaps are made with Olive oil which moisturizes the skin by attracting external moisture. Olive oil is a particularly wonderful moisturizer because it does not block any of the natural functions of the skin. The skin is able to sweat, breathe and shed dead skin. We cannot say enough good things about olive oil. We developed our formula to contain the highest amount of olive oil (30%) that we could without making the bar too soft.
Shea Butter moisturizes pores without clogging them. Provides natural protection from UV radiation. Resists eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Shea butter is very rich and nourishing and is excellent for dry skin, yet gentle enough for babies and sensitive skin.
Studies show that Coconut oil—which is extracted from the meat of mature coconuts—may improve skin barrier function and repair, has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, fights the signs of aging of the skin, and makes an effective moisturizer.
We use purified water in all of our soap. It ensures that each batch is free of minerals and other elements in other waters or tap water.
Lye known as sodium hydroxide reacts with the oils in the saponification process to make soap. If it is not made with lye it is not soap.
The lye is not harmful once it is made into soap. The oils are acidic and the lye is alkaline. In the process of the stirring of the oils and lye and water together the bonding takes place that causes the harshness of the ingredients alone, to become mild and non-caustic.
We also use botanicals like oatmeal, calendula, chamomile, lavender, citrus peel, peppermint in most of the soaps. This gives the soaps a little exfoliant to get rid of the dead skin cells. Sweet Pea Baby soap, Dog, and Mister Spicey do not have exfoliants.
We also use fragrances or essential oils which make the soaps smell wonderful.
Finally, we add mica colorants that are skin-safe.
Our handmade soaps are approximately 6-7 oz. (198gm)
We test each batch for the PH level.
All these ingredients create a wonderful soap called Green Frog Soap.
