Let's Talk Sodium Lactate....

Many of you have probably read the ingredients on our soaps and wondered what is sodium lactate, and why do you put it in soap? Well, here it is in a nutshell! Sodium lactate is a liquid salt that is derived from the natural fermentation of sugars found in corn and beets. Yup, this ingredient is ALL NATURAL! So why do we throw this salty piece of nature in our soaps? Because this stuff is AMAZING, that's why! First off, sodium lactate it self is a natural preservative acting as a inhibitor of bacterial growth. In soap, it provides a harder bar which helps the soap last longer. Sodium lactate is also a humectant. (humectant means keeping things moist) This makes it a great additive in lotions, body butters, face masks, bath bombs and more! Next time you see this ingredient on the label, you'll know what an awesome natural product this is!

Botanical Name: Propanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-monsodium salt
