It’s a fact. Consumers are more and more demanding about the quality of the products they buy. For example, more and more of us are adopting organic products to take care of our body , and more particularly our skin.
Likewise, manufacturers are also committing to formulas based on natural ingredients, more respectful of the body… and of the environment ! The soaps surgras are part of the latest generation dermo everyone pulls. You have surely heard of it… But what is it really about, and what are the benefits? Let’s take a look at surgras soap in this post.
What about cold saponification
Surgras soap is soap obtained using the so-called “cold” saponification method . To produce it, the soap maker mixes fatty substances ( vegetable oils ) with a base, soda (sodium hydroxide) at low temperature to make a solid soap . The homogeneous paste obtained is then dried for at least 4 weeks, the “cold” chemical reaction which occurs until complete elimination of the soda is slower than when hot.
Thus, cold saponification makes it possible to retain all the natural “good” fat in the ingredients without altering it . This then results in a bar of soap rich in vegetable glycerin . This moisturizing, softening, non-comedogenic and low-allergenic active ingredient, the benefits of which on the skin, but also on the hair have been demonstrated many times. In addition, before complete solidification, the soap maker adds natural nutritious superfatters ( coconut oil , cocoa butter , olive oil, rice bran oil, etc.) for optimal hydration of the epidermis. This is what is worth to cold saponified soapstheir name ” surgras“. Thus, unlike the process of creating industrial soap, no additives of chemical origin are added to extract the glycerin. What makes it a healthy product for the skin because it keeps all its softness.
Finally, as it is carried out at low temperature or even at room temperature, the production of superfatted soaps is energy efficient, non-polluting and without waste . An eco-responsible aspect to be neglected!

Depending on the environment in which one operates, and more particularly when one has sensitive skin , it can deteriorate, limiting the protection of the skin against bacteria, fungi and impurities . To remedy this, bet on organic surgras soap which cleanses the skin while preserving this natural protective barrier . But not only.
