Soap, at its core, is a result of a chemical reaction known as saponification. During this process, triglycerides, which are fats and oils, undergo hydrolysis. This reaction yields glycerol and soap molecules, creating an effective cleansing agent that plays a pivotal role in removing impurities from the skin.
The soap molecule possesses a dual nature, with one end being hydrophobic (repellent to water) and the other hydrophilic (attracted to water). This structure allows soap to break down oil and grease, enabling effective removal through water rinsing.
Soap's ability to reduce surface tension plays a pivotal role in its cleansing abilities. By disrupting the cohesive forces that hold water molecules together, soap ensures thorough wetting and penetration, reaching even the most stubborn dirt and grime.
Through a process called emulsification, soap disperses oil and grease into smaller droplets, preventing them from re-agglomerating (to gather into a ball, mass, or cluster.). This mechanism facilitates the suspension of these particles in water, promoting their easy removal during rinsing.
The skin's natural pH balance is vital in maintaining its health and integrity. Opting for a soap with a pH close to that of your skin helps preserve this delicate equilibrium, preventing dryness or irritation. If you are unsure of your skins natural PH levels, you can perform a variety of tests to work out your skin PH levels.
