Alma is the curator behind these beautiful bars and we are excited to share them with you. These bars have been specially curated for Grounded. Each bar takes approximately 5 weeks to create.
The process begins with high quality oils and butters emulsified with water and sodium hydroxide (lye). Despite what anyone has said, there is no soap with out LYE. When mixed with oils and butters it causes a reaction called Saponification. After 24-48 the lye and some of the water evaporates leaving behind what we know as Soap! The soap is now ready to be cut into bars. Likada bars are cut into 4.5-5 oz bars. Each bar is cured for at least six weeks to reach its best condition and quality. During this time more water evaporates leaving a harder and longer lasting bar of soap weighing approximately 4-5 oz.
