How to Use Our Soap

If washing with solid soap is a different experience for you, prepare to really enjoy a new way to wash.  Wet your soap, then take some moments to roll our wonderful round bar over and over in your palms to release the rich and creamy lather.  Hold the soap close and inhale the natural scent of the essential oil released into the lather.  While natural essential oils have many benefits for the skin and hair, they also boost the senses and soothe the mind so make the most of the scent as you wash.  Black Pepper and Basil are warming and relaxing scents that remind us to slow down and enjoy the moment. 

When washing your face, work up a lather, put down your soap, and then gently massage across cheekbones, over forehead, down around nose and under jawline.  Rinse with cool to warm water or under shower.  The soap helps the water droplets to soak your skin and dislodge dirt that the lather holds until it is rinsed away.   Activated charcoal is good at clearing the pores. When washing your body, we recommend circulating the soap directly on your skin.  Wash with joy!

Avoid contact with eyes.  Rinse well with water if necessary.

Remember to store your soap in a dry, airy, cool place after use to avoid it going soft.

About Your Soap

Oname soaps are ‘All-vegetable’ cold-process soaps.  When we mix our vegetable or plant oils (which are acids) with an alkaline base (we use Sodium Hydroxide) they react and neutralise into a salt which is your soap.  This process is called Saponification.  We use water as our solvent to dissolve the base.  The natural reaction that takes place creates enough of its own heat to ‘saponify’ the oils so no external heat is needed. That’s why our method is called ‘Cold-process’ soap making.  Before we pour our soaps into molds, essential oils are stirred into the saponifying oils to add scent and additional skin and hair benefits. Now, here’s the best bit…Oname soaps feel lovely and soft and have rich, creamy, natural lathers because we do something clever called superfatting. We superfat by leaving some of the gorgeous vegetable oils unsaponified so you can enjoy rich nutritious lathers that nourish your skin and hair, along with other nutrients such as oatmilk, honey, clays and essential oils. During the reaction, the base ingredients change. For example, Olive Oil becomes Sodium Olivate – a sodium salt derived from the fatty acids of Olive oil.   In our ingredients list, you will see what is actually in the bar of soap you are using after saponification has taken place. In addition, we have listed the name of the base oils before saponification and explained how and why we include the other ingredients we use.
