For sure! No bubbles no fun, right?
Though the fact is that syndet soap tends to be more bubbly than artisanal soap. I know - I have to admit it.
We as soapmakers strive to mix the right proportion of oils to create a bubbly bar, but sadly the same oils that produce lovely bubbles tend to dry out the skin. So we are left trying to juggle max lather with max skin conditioning. I don't know about you, but I prefer to sacrifice a little bit of bubbles for skin that feels soft and supple - not cardboard, dry as a desert, skin.
So why are syndet bars so bubbly? Well, synthetic detergent bars have a lot of additives, many of them focus on maximizing lather. So yes, they create amazing bubbles, but like for artisanal soap, those additives dry out your skin...so a big "boo" to that.
What about you guys...are bubbles one of your top priorities in choosing soap?
