Saponification is a chemical transformation during which fatty substances (here, 80% olive oil and 20% coconut oil) are hydrolyzed (mixed) with a Sodium base (for soap bars) or potash (soft clay, for liquid soap). Blended in a big cauldron, the master soap craftsman stirs the mixture patiently, similarly to a jam mixture until it transforms into soap, a non-aggressive cleaning product, as it is naturally accompanied by a “softening agent”, glycerin.
