There’s nothing quite as satisfying as the luxurious lather of a good foaming soap. Between the bubbles and the velvety-smooth texture, foaming hand soap or body wash makes getting clean that much more enjoyable. As it turns out, though, it does much more than that.
Today, foaming soap battles germs while also conditioning and protecting skin, making it a critical self-care product you can’t afford to compromise on. Want to learn more about foaming soap options and how to select the right one for your household?
Let’s dive in.
If you’re like most of us, you’re looking for small ways to make your everyday life greener and more sustainable. It’s an admirable mission, and we commend you! Luckily, some eco-friendly additions are easy to bring into your home. One such example is foaming hand soap. While the concept of a bubbly, comforting hand soap might notseem revolutionary, it can be a great sustainable option for your needs.
Today, most foaming hand soaps (including ours) are really liquid Castile soap concentrate, and a dilution ratio tossed together in a nifty mechanical dispenser meant to mix and deliver the soap. There are a few great benefits of using such a system, including the following:
For all these reasons, we think foaming soaps are the bee’s knees. In fact, we’re especially partial to those made with bee-based products like fresh honey and natural oils. In the next section, we’ll get into our soaps in specific, and what they do differently than the rest of the market.
We all love a good lather, but not all foaming soap is created equal. In fact, a lot of what’s on the market today uses all sorts of nasty stuff - such as sodium bicarbonate, ammonium carbonate, ammonium bicarbonate, and calcium azide - to create that lather. These so-called “foaming agents” are inorganic compounds that facilitate the formation of foam.
If you ask us, though, they don’t have any place in your home or on your skin.
That’s why we choose to do things a bit differently. Our soaps are all made with all-natural and highly moisturizing ingredients.
Castile soaps are different from mass-market soaps in that they’re made from oils rather than synthetic products or animal fats. The soaps originated in the Castile region of Spain - hence their name - and traditionally relied on olive oil as a base. Today, though, manufacturers use a variety of plant-based fats to develop them.
Here at Beessential, we make our own Castile base from a variety of potent, moisturizing oils, including the following:
Here at Beessential, we believe in using only the highest-quality ingredients in our hand soaps. As such, we make our own Castile base from the oils above. We produce this base in a small-batch environment, so we have complete oversight into the quality of every production. We never make thousands of gallons at once, which means we can always adjust, improve, and perfect the batches we do create.
Alright, so we use some fancy oils, but what else makes our soap unique? What makes it better? Here are a few things we’re known for:
From the spearmint in our Spearmint and Lime Foaming Hand Soap to the tangy orange in our Sweet Orange, Aloe & Honey Foaming Hand Soap, we know a thing or two about high-quality, skin-softening oils. When we make our soaps, we use only the highest-quality ingredients, and we mix them in unexpected, delightful ways.
Each soap we produce softens and protects skin, yes, but it also smells great, banishes germs, and delivers a powerful boost of natural antioxidants to your skin to prevent aging and protect your hands and body from damage. What more could you want from a foaming soap?
Instead of using a lot of questionable animal byproducts that are tough to regulate and even harder to obtain in clean, skin-safe varieties, we use plant-based products that come from high-quality, organic sources. This means you can put your mind at ease and know exactly what you’re putting on your skin.
Our soap-making workshop is a little like Santa’s Toy Shoppe, but with fewer elves, more bees, and a more significant focus on oils and bubbles. Everything we make comes in small batches, which allows us to take an artisan approach to each product we produce. You won’t find us churning out thousand-gallon vats of foaming hand soap. Instead, we treat each batch with love and make each bottle with the utmost care and commitment.
Last but not least, our foam is ah-mazing. Use it in the kitchen, in the shower, on your dog - whatever. You won’t be dissa[ointed by our rich, creamy lather, or the way it works up into a truly delicious texture with just a little water. Why not have fun while getting clean? We make it possible to do just that, while also healing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin. In a way, our soap is kind of like the fountain of youth. Cool, right?
Q: Does foaming hand soap kill germs?
A:Yes and No! Soap and water don't actually kill germs; they work by removing them from your hands. Our foaming hand soaps feature a combination of rich, creamy lather and powerful essential oils like peppermint and tea tree, which team up to remove germs and help you stay healthy.
Q: Is foaming soap better than regular soap?
A:Foaming hand soap provides a different experience than regular soap. Instead of drying your skin out, foaming hand soap nourishes, protects, and cleans skin all at once.
Q: Does foaming hand soap last longer than liquid?
A:If you’re looking to cut down on your soap spending, foaming hand soap is a great option. Thanks to our powerful concentrate formula, you’ll use less foaming soap than you would liquid soap. This means your soap will last longer.
Q: What is the best foaming hand soap?
A:That depends on what you’re looking for! We have a variety of foaming hand soaps, al, of which are all-natural, sulfate and paraben-free, and moisturizing. Choose from options like energizing peppermint and grapefruit or soothing lavender.
Q: How much foaming hand soap should you use when washing hands?
A: Just a bit of our foaming hand soap produces a rich lather, so less is more. We recommend about a dime sized dollop to get hand squeaky clean with each wash.
