Soap. How to select your soap.

Soap is a human invention that dates back to the ancient times of Babylon.

In ancient Egypt people would use soap made from combining animal oils with alkaline salts.

Cleopatra the queen of ancient Egypt was using donkey milk soap for her every day bath to maintain her beauty.

Soap is the most ubiquitous hygiene product in the world, so the process of choosing the right soap is important.

The soap manufacturers have avoided labeling their cleaning products as soap and have used body bars or beauty bars instead. To cut down the manufacturing expenses, they have replaced natural ingredients with chemicals making soap that was more similar to washing powder. In the past decade, stricter labeling rules have forced soap manufacturers change the labels on their detergents that were promoted as soap and this is how body bars have started to show up on the shelves. You should purchase a natural bar soap and avoid beauty bars as much as possible to ensure that your skin will not be affected by harmful chemical.

How to select your soap?

1. Read the label.

When selecting your soap is to read the label carefully and ensure that the word soap is used when describing the product to avoid purchasing detergent and use it on your skin. The natural body care movement has grown a lot in the past few years and is still growing, and so finding a natural bar soap is not that difficult. We at we are using only natural ingredients for making our all natural cosmetics.

2. Check if the soap’s glycerin is removed.

The next thing you need to keep in mind is that the best natural soap is the one that does not have its glycerin removed. Glycerin is the ingredient that offers soap its moisturizing properties. When it comes to industrial soap, having the glycerin removed is a given, because manufacturers use it for moisturizing crèmes afterwards. What is more, you can order hand-made soaps online from specialized suppliers such as With the advent of the e-commerce, you now have access to a great variety of handmade soaps that use an incredible variety of ingredients such as coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, olive oil and donkey milk, each with its own specific set of properties.

Selecting your soaps may seem like a long and difficult process, but the truth is that you can easily find the perfect soap by scrutinizing the market. After you discover a reliable supplier, it becomes just a matter of picking the soaps you would like depending on scent and ingredients and placing an order. You can do it here. The best natural soaps for you is not necessarily something others like to use, so take your time browsing through the wide selection of natural bar soaps available and trying everything out until you discover the ones that you like using the most. There are several kinds of soaps by you can choose from:

3. Hardness

Good quality soaps must be hard for lasting long in shower conditions.

4. Cleansing

Cleansing is the soap’s ability to grab on to oils.

How good quality soaps clean your skin actually?

Soap. How to select your soap-01

The upper level of skin surface (epidermis) contains oil. And when dirt comes in touch with the skin it comes in contact with this oil. So, dirty skin is a skin with dirty oil on epidermis.  When you wash your skin with soap and water, the dirty oil of epidermis is grabbed from the soap. When you rinse, the dirt oil is washed away. A good quality soap with this range of cleansing cleans only the epidermis. If the soap cleans also the oil of deeper skin surface (too much) then the skin becomes dry.

Soaps made with too much Lauric and/or Myristic Acid such as coconut and palm oil, can irritate the skin by washing away not only the top dirty layer of oils, but also the protective layer of surface oils on the skin. Generally speaking, keeping the total of coconut and palm kernel in our recipe to no more than 30-35% we keep the cleansing in proper range.  However, we compensate the strong cleansing of coconut and palm oil by using olive oil (which has a high conditioning value) for super fating.

5. Conditioning

Conditioning is the soap’s Moisturizers – emollients content. Moisturizers or emollients are complex mixtures of chemical agents, such soaps, as specially designed to make the external layers of the skin (epidermis) softer and more pliable. They increase the skin’s hydration (water content) by reducing evaporation. Naturally occurring skin lipids and sterols, as well as artificial or natural oils, humectants, emollients, lubricants, etc., may be part of the composition of commercial skin moisturizers. They usually are available as handmade natural soaps for cosmetic and therapeutic uses.

6. Creamy and Bubbly lather

Creamy and bubbly Lather is the soap’s ability to lather up and get bubbly. The higher Bubbly numbers will tend to produce a foamy, fluffy lather rather than a creamy lather with little or no bubbles. Usually, increasing Bubbly will decrease Creamy and vice versa. The higher Creamy numbers will tend to produce a creamy lather with lesser amounts of bubbles or foam. Soaps made with oils that do not contain Lauric, Myristic or Ricinoleic acids will produce soaps with just creamy lather. An example would be 100% olive oil soaps.

Why El Greco handmade Natural soap with donkey milk?

As a family owned business, El Greco Handmade Natural Cosmetics consists of a heath-loving team who live on their hobby farm in Groningen, The Netherlands. Back to nature where we belong Annemieke and Michalis spend their days carrying and milking their donkeys, making soap and having fun. With Donkey milk and other healthy oils such as olive oil, castor oil, palm oil and coconut oil, they made their own handmade natural soap for using for themselves and later they thought why not to share this wonderful natural experience with other people. And so El Greco Handmade Natural Soap – Cosmetics Company was born!

It is all to ingredients.

It is our desire that you are informed what you’re getting when considering El Greco handmade Natural soap with donkey milk. Our products are made with natural organic ingredients so you don’t have to wonder about the integrity of the soap your body is absorbing.

This is important because what you apply to your skin invariably winds up in your blood!

The fact is, chemicals absorbed through the skin go straight to the blood-stream and are carried off to the rest of your body (liver). They don’t get filtered and broken down in your stomach like your food does.

Did you know your skin is the largest organ of your body? That makes it the main entrance for all kinds of things, harmful or not. That is why you should know exactly what you are getting when it comes to skincare and why it matters so much!

The best way to be reassured when it comes to organic beauty products is to look for the natural organic ingredients on the label.

Even still, being organic is about more than just making sure the organic ingredients are truly organic. The remaining ingredients must also meet strict criteria to ensure that they are not damaging our health or the environment.
