We've been stocking & selling the best bar soaps in Leeds since 2016, from some of the UKs' best soap makers & get asked 'what is the best bar soap?' almost daily.
We have own thoughts on what is the best bar of soap & for that reason only stock natural soap bars that are handmade using the cold process soap making method.
The traditional cold process soap making method is the original method of making soap bars, and is very similar to baking a cake. Essentially all you're doing is mixing all of your natural butters, oils & fragrance in a bowl & then adding an ingredient that turns this mixture into soap. This is called saponification. (Obviously a little more complex but this is it in a nutshell)
The traditional cold process soap making method often uses minimal heat resulting in a very eco friendly method. The minimal heat also helps all of the ingredients used retain all of their many benefits. Too much heat & you'll effect the quality of the ingredients.
So for us at Adam & Eco in Leeds, whenever people ask 'What is the best bar soap?' we always tell them most soap bars that are handmade only using the traditional cold process soap making method.
We say 'most,' purely because at Adam & Eco we have gone further with this. You could essentially create a cold process soap bar using many different ingredients. They do not have to be strictly natural. The majority of soap bars in our Yorkshire soap shop in Leeds contain what we refer to as 'whole natural ingredients.'
Take a look at these two example bar soap ingredients labels & let us know which one you prefer?
We've taken the others ingredient label from a random example of a soap bar found when searching for the best bar soap on Google.
When we say we sell the best natural bar soap we really mean it. Find out more in our next soap blog post & why we stock soap bars made with whole natural ingredients. COMING SOON!
