soap fact for today

Soap fact for the day for soap week... Do your soap ingredients say Tallow? or Sodium Tallowate? This means your soap contains the rendered fat of an animal, generally cow, pig or sheep mostly the former two. Animal fat has been used for thousands of years for soap and candle making and for lamp oil among other uses. There's nothing really wrong with tallow, in some circles it's considered great for skin, but if you are vegetarian or vegan of course you want to avoid it. At the moment ellenoire does not make any animal fat based soaps, although some of our "Fun" imported soaps contain it.
