Ever wonder about how soap making began?

1 comment

Soap making history goes back many thousands of years.

At the start, ash was added to water for washing clothes and dishes. Eventually, people began to notice that if the ash mixed with the fat from their stone fireplaces during cooking, the dishes were washed better.

The first concrete evidence that people have of soap-like substance is dated back to around 2800 BC., where the first soap makers were Babylonians, Mesopotamians, Egyptians, as well as the ancient Greeks and Romans.  

The most basic supplies for soap making were those taken from animal and nature: fat, oils, ash, salt.

Today, soap is produced from fats and lye (alkali). The cold process method is the most popular soap making process today, but some soap makers (like us!) still use the historical hot process.
