ALL-NATURAL SOAP BARS SPECIALTY SOAP BARS
~ About Soap ~
Castile soap is a name used in English-speaking countries for olive oil based soap made in a style similar to that originating in the Castile region of Spain. Soap is a mixture of astringents or alkaline chemicals suspended in a waxy or fatty substance. Early soaps were semisolid affairs with a texture similar to butter or shortening. The word "soap" comes from Latin and is associated with the Roman legend of Mount Sapo. A fire had burned the woods and the ashes were washed downstream. When the ashes mixed with animal tallow and clay from the riverbanks, it formed a naturally occurring "soap" that made doing laundry in the Tiber River much easier than in other rivers.

SHAMPOO LIQUID SOAP
~ About Shampoo ~
Shampoo is a hair care product that is used for cleaning hair. The goal of using shampoo is to remove the unwanted build-up without stripping out so much sebum as to make hair unmanageable. Originally, soap and shampoo were very similar products; both containing the same naturally derived surfactants, a type of detergent. Modern shampoo as it is known today was first introduced in the 1930s with Drene, the first shampoo using synthetic surfactants instead of soap. [From Wikipedia]
