All of Park Bench Naturals Soaps are handcrafted in small batches using premium oils, food grade lye, Amish Jersey milk, wildcrafted botanicals and 100% pure essential oils. Our soaps are designed to cleanse without stripping your body's natural oils.
In theory, it is not complicated to make a bar of soap. Basically a fat is mixed with lye and liquids. In reality, there is a lot to consider when creating a really great bar of soap.
There are five main characteristics that define a bar of soap:
Hardness: Soap should be hard enough to stand up to a series of uses. If it is too soft, it won't last very long. Park Bench Naturals has formulated a bar that lands at the 90% mark for recommended degree of hardness.
Cleansing: Isn't that the whole point of using soap? Park Bench Naturals soaps are formulated at 100% of the recommended degree for Cleansing Properties.
Conditioning: We still hear stories of "grandma's lye soap" that was so harsh it could take a hyde off! Nobody wants anything to do with that! Park Bench Naturals Soaps are formulated at the 75% of maximum mark for Conditioning Properties. This means that our soaps will clean (remember point #2 above) with out stripping natural oils. You have seen the commercials for certain soaps that claim to be super conditioning because they contain 1/4 oils (25%)? Well ours contain 64%!
Bubbly: This is difficult for many soap makers to get the hang of, but Park Bench Naturals formula lands at 96% of the Maximum recommended level for the Bubbly property!
Creamy: Usually increasing the bubbly factor in soap will decrease the stability and creaminess of it's lather, but Park Bench Naturals formula has been well researched and lands with a solid 94% of the Maximum recommended level for the Creamy factor.
