The basic structure of all soaps stay relatively the same despite the differing ingredients. This consists of a hydrophobic hydrocarbon tail (detracts water) and a hydrophilic anionic head (attracts water).

The type of fat or oil can result in a different length of the hydrocarbon but all in all the hydrophobic tail remains long. The carboxylate head is usually balanced by either using potassium + or sodium + . When making soap, triglycerides in fats and oils are heated with a strong alkali base like that of sodium hydroxide (lye). This produces three molecules of soap for every molecule of glycerol. 

This process is called saponification (illustrated below)

Soaps are surface active substances also referred to as surfactants. This means they make water clean surfaces better. Water has very high surface tension, which means when you pour water on a table, it sticks together. Surfactants make it easier for water molecules to wet surfaces and increase the ability of dissolving dirt, and oil stains. 

The general rule for how soap works is ‘like dissolves like’. The nonpolar hydrophobic tails of soap attract the grease and oils that help dirt and stains adhere to surfaces. The hydrophilic heads remain surrounded by the water molecules which they are attracted to. As more soap molecules embed into a stain they surround and isolate little particles of the stain called micelles. The micelle has tails of soap molecules facing toward the grease with the head facing outward into water, which results in an emulsion of soap mixed with grease in water. Soap molecules partially dissolve the stain to form the emulsion that is kept in the water until the soap is rinsed with more water.

Soaps don’t clean everything perfectly, like with water containing calcium or magnesium ions. Calcium and magnesium salts are insoluble which causes soaps to dirty surfaces because the soap binds to the calcium or magnesium. 

Soaps have since been replaced by synthetic detergents that have sulfonate instead of carboxylate head because sulfonates don’t precipitate with calcium or magnesium ions and have better solubility with water. But this doesn’t mean that synthetic detergents are necessarily better for the skin. Detergents are made for cleaning surfaces, clothes, dishes and other things that aren’t related to the skin.

ARE THERE GERMS ON BAR SOAPS?

Of course there are some germs on a bar of soap, there’s germs on all sorts of things in our environment (even your liquid soap bottles), but there are even more germs living on your skin, ‘naturally’. 

DOES THAT MEAN BAR SOAP IS UNSANITARY?

NOT AT ALL. Doctors even recommend bar soap and water to disinfect the hands and body from all sorts of viruses and bacteria, (even COVID-19). Savage Soaps are great for handwashing and keep your hands from drying out because they’re loaded with moisture-rich natural oils.  

The majority of germs that accumulate on your bar soap are from your own skin. As soap is met with the skin and water, either the high acidity, or the neutralizing elements remove dirt from your skin. It’s proven that bar soap is healthy and is not prone to cause illness. 

Bacteria? Ewww! 

Less than 1% of bacteria in the world actually makes people sick. Half of the cells of the human body are bacteria. The bottom line is that it’s not bad for your bar of soap to hold some of the microorganisms of the skin. It’s actually beneficial and boosts the immune system.

Soaps that claim to be antibacterial have been proven by the CDC to render no health benefits and are also dangerous to the environment. Natural Savage Soaps, handmade with superior oils, are really effective in getting rid of the bad germs while keeping the good germs.

How do I avoid bacteria using bar soap?

When plain soap and water come together, compounds in the soap called surfactants create an open carbon molecule that connects with bacteria and dirt. When you wash with a bar of soap, the soap and bacteria wash right down the drain. 

If you want to ensure you’re staying as germ-free as possible you can follow these simple steps:

  1. Use soap and water directly on the skin. (Avoid washing with loofahs and washcloths.)
  2. Wash your bar soap off for 15 seconds with water to wash away dirt and microorganisms. 
  3. Keep your bar soap dry between uses by using a soap dish

But, I like my loofah!

If you happen to use loofahs and/or washcloths, doctors recommend cleaning and replacing them daily. Washcloths stay wet for longer periods than bar soap, therefore they can accumulate higher amounts of bacteria.
