Here’s a little history lesson (ugh, I know but quick and painless). Cold process soap is a method of soap making that has been used for thousands of years dating back to ancient Babylon between 2200-2800 BC. Like most things, as more needed to be made we turned to faster, more industrial friendly methods. Hot process soap was born! By literally cooking a base formula that includes alcohol and other filler products, companies engineered soap to be mass produced in huge vats to maximize efficiency. Little did anyone know the deleterious effects that soap would have on our skin long term; soap is soap, right?
Wrong! As health-conscious people started to look at their body holistically, they realized that this industrial friendly hot process soap was causing dry, itchy skin that can lead to rashes *gasp*. To solve this problem, there was a shift back to the slower, traditional, hand crafted cold process soap. Generally speaking, cold process soap is more natural and better for the largest organ on your body, the skin!
Lumbazzi has chosen the harder path in the all-natural personal care world. We want to upgrade cold process soap far above anyone else in the industry with a few elements; base formula, scent, and performance. We crafted a unique, palm oil free base formula that incorporates all the lather you expect out of your soap with an added silky feeling, skin hydrating performance you never knew you wanted! Lumbazzi only uses essential oils to add scent to our products, staying as truly natural as we can while avoiding harsh fragrance oils that take away from our Proper Care mission.
