Organic Natural Baby Soap

Jun 1, 2008
Using an organic natural baby soap on your child is not only safe for them but also for the environment as well. Such products contain no kinds of artificial ingredients, which are likely to cause irritation to their sensitive skin.

Today there are numerous different kinds of natural organic baby soaps that one can buy. But what you may find that where one soap suits one child it may not actually suit yours so you may need to try several before you find the right one. Yet even though you would be mainly using these kinds of soaps on your newborn baby these can also be used by other members of the family also.

Although using ready-made natural organic products is good for your child's skin, you could if you want save money and make your own soap instead. Below we go through the steps you will need to take in order to make your own. Along with the ingredients, there will be certain pieces of equipment that you will need as well. A large saucepan into which the mixture will be prepared, some goggles and a good pair of gloves.

Step 1 - Get together the ingredients for this recipe you will need 8 ounces of water (distilled is best), 3 ounces of lye, 5 ounces of organic palm oil, 5 ounces of organic coconut oil and 15 ounces of organic olive oil.

Step 2 - As soon as you have all the ingredients to hand, you need to pour the water into one of the pans and to this very slowly add the lye. As soon as the lye comes into contact with the water, a chemical reaction occurs and it lets of fumes and the water actually begins to heat up. If you can prepare this mixture outside and then once all the lye has been mixed into the water you need to let it stand (away from pets and others) until it has reached room temperature.

Step 3 - Once the lye mixture has reached room temperature you can now very slowly begin to add the other ingredients (oils) that are mentioned above to it. First of all these need to be heated before they actually get added to the lye mixture and it is a good idea to have a thermometer that you can use to ensure that they have reached the right temperature.

Step 4 - After the oils have reached the correct temperature, take the pan that they are in off the heat and very slowly begin to stir in the lye mixture that you prepared earlier. Once you have completely mixed the lye into the oils you can use a stick blender if you want and mix for one minute until the soap becomes thick and opaque.

Step 5 - As soon as the mixture has reached the right consistency then you can pour it into moulds. Once in the moulds you should allow the soap to stand for around 24 hours in a cool place so that it can set properly. After this time, the organic natural baby soap that you have made will be ready for you to use.
