Are sulfates & surfactants used in Tate Naturals soaps? No, we do not use sulfates or surfactants in our soaps, which dry out skin- causing skin irritation.

"Sulfates" or SLS (sodium laurel sulfates) and "Surfactants" are added to many soaps to increase lather. We don't use any sulfates or surfactants. Instead, we make our soap from organic plant oils that DOES NOT DEPEND ON SURFACTANTS FOR LATHER. The oils are balanced for a full lather that is completely natural.

Why do sulfates, surfactants, fragrances, and dyes dry out skin, which in turn, can cause skin irritation? The short answer is that it is because they are all chemically derived. The chemicals are artificially made to create a fragrance that, for example, smells like a strawberry. The artificial fragrance can irritate and aggravate skin. Tate Naturals products do not contain sulfates, surfactants, fragrances, dyes, or anything artificial.

What is the soap base made of? Our soap base is made from organic plant oils like coconut oil and sunflower oil that are nourishing and soothing to skin. There are NO sulfates or surfactants.

What do fatty acids have to do with glycerol? Fatty acids are naturally occurring in oils, and come from triglycerides. A triglyceride is made up of 3 fatty adds and a "glycerol" (a glycerin). Fatty acids are made up of links of carbon atoms with the glycerin base. This glycerol backbone is central to all triglycerides. 

In the saponification process of making soap, the triglyceride undergoes a reaction, separating the fatty acids from the glycerol- resulting in the soap & glycerin. (Tate Naturals soap bars are made from organic plant oils and the natural fatty acids they contain.)

I am looking for a soap with glycerin- do Tate Naturals soaps contain glycerin? Yes, our soaps contain glycerin. Glycerin is a natural part of the plant-based oils used in our soaps. And we don't extract glycerin out of our soaps for selling separately. We leave it in, for the soothing & moisturizing qualities it provides.

Our soaps are different from "clear glycerin soaps" because they are not transparent. "Clear glycerin soaps" have a sugar-alcohol compound that is added to make soap transparency, which is drying to skin.

I have tried "Doctor recommended" soaps for sensitive skin and eczema. Will Tate Naturals soaps help? "Doctor recommended" soaps that contain many chemicals often irritate skin. Synthetic ingredients can aggravate skin and make existing skin problems such as eczema worse. We, at Tate Naturals know there is a better way. Our soaps are free of chemicals. Most people find that when they use our soap bars that have soothing & nourishing plant oils as the base, with no synthetic ingredients- that their skin improves.
