Lather vs. bubbles

Lather vs Bubbles

Did you ever notice how "bubbly" the soaps are from the big box stores, drugs stores, etc.? This is not at all natural and only occurs because there are foaming agents added. Soap also has a bad reputation because these kind of "soaps". Did you know that most commercial soaps actually remove the glycerin in the soap and in its place put in a detergent?! This, of course, makes skin very dry and they sell the glycerin back to the consumer in the form of a lotion to ease the dryness. Take a look at the name of the products as well. REAL soap is called soap, but a bar cannot be called soap if the glycerin is removed, so it is instead called a "beauty bar" or "bath bar".

REAL soap is not really bubbly, but rather it has a wonderfully, silky, creamy lather that feels good on your skin both while you're using it and afterwards, as it will leave your hands soft, not dried out. 

It's like that old saying: "once you've tried it, you'll never go back!".

Happy soaping!

How are you coping with the Coronavirus or Covid19?
How are you coping with the Coronavirus, better known as Covid19?

Coping with the Coronavirus...better known as Covid19. Who would have ever, in a million years, thought that we'd be in this situation. I think it serves to remind humankind that, with all our advancements and technology, and no matter how intelligent we think we are, we are still just mere human beings, no matter how famous or important one may be, with frailties and powerlessness in the grand scheme of things. I know that I sometimes awaken and think "surely this was just a nightmare" and it still seems surreal sometimes to see people walking around with masks, lining up to get into a store or just see the main road, that is visible from my front window, seeming so deserted and empty, when it was previously packed with cars every morning and evening during "rush hour".
