Why Decorus Vagary Soap?

The majority of soaps on the shelf don’t say ‘soap’ on their labels because those bars can’t legally claim to be soap; they’re detergents. The manufacturers have removed most benefits that develop naturally through saponification, replacing it with synthetic lathering agents and harsh chemicals. These detergent bars are not simply bad for your skin, but they’re also damaging for the planet. Cold process soap doesn’t require the use of harmful detergents.

What is Cold-Process Soap?

Cold process soap making happens when we mix oils (olive, coconut, and palm) with an alkali (sodium hydroxide, known as lye), resulting in a chemical process called saponification, where the structure of the oils changes with the cooperation of the lye to create a bar of soap.
