Jub Green Tea Glycerin Soap – Developed by Jub.
Our Green Tea Glycerin soap is made the traditional way by combining natural vegetable oils and Butter with Sodium hydroxide through a hot process. The soap-making process is called saponification. Saponification literally means “turning into soap”. It is a process in which fat molecules are broken down by sodium hydroxide into four smaller molecules; three of the new molecules are soap and one is glycerol. The glycerol (also called glycerin) molecule is used as a humectant, solvent, and emollient. Jub’s Green Tea Glycerin soap takes it one more step farther with extra glycerin. Additional glycerin was added to create Jub’s Green Tea Glycerin soap. Glycerin is a powerful humectant – a substance that attracts and retains moisture. When glycerin is allowed to remain in the soap, it makes a gentle and well balanced soap. When even more glycerin is added to the soap the result is an even more mild and moisturizing product.
Because Jub Green Tea Glycerin Soap is made with a high percentage of Glycerin, we simply call our soap “Glycerin soap”
“The characteristic of any soap is strongly influenced by the characteristics of the oil used. Each oil has a dominant type of fatty acid. Fatty acids will determine the characteristic of the soap.”
Soaps that have a great quality are a direct result of the raw materials used. The special oils we use in Jub Green Tea Glycerin Soap, which eventually will turn into soap molecules, are carefully chosen oils which are high in essential fatty acids (EFAs) and unsaponifiables that help moisturize, nourish and balance the skin. Unsaponifiables are components of an oily (oil, fat, wax) mixture that fail to form soaps when blended with sodium hydroxide (lye). Since saponifiable components of the original oil mixture do form soaps, the result of the soap making procedure is a mixture of soap and other materials. “Unsaponifiable constituents are an important consideration when selecting oil mixtures for the manufacture of soaps because they may have properties such as moisturization, conditioning, vitamins, texture, etc.” Source
The unique combination of Shea Butter (rich in Vitamin E and Omega 6) and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green tea) combined with Jub’s unique mixture (a combination of traditional oils and high-quality waxes which are an exceptionally rich source of the two essential fatty acids (EFAs) – linoleic (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic (omega-3) acids) create a product that uniquely matches the balance required by the human body. Green tea has been in a number of skin related studies. A study published online on April 27, 2011 in the Journal of Nutrition describes protective benefits for green tea polyphenols against ultraviolet light-induced skin damage, as well as an ability to improve elasticity, density and other skin properties. The combination of essential fatty acids are important nutrients for the skin as they promote natural moisture levels for soft healthy glowing skin. Providing this bala
nce to your skin will help improve dry skin conditions. The Green Tea Extract gives our soap its green color.
At Jub’s lab, we developed 4 very unique and different formulations of Green Tea Glycerin soap:
- Green Tea & Coconut Charcoal Glycerin Facial soap for Every skin type – All Natural
- Green Tea, Clay, & May Chang Glycerin Facial Soap for Oily skin and Acne – All Natural
Interesting ingredient fact: Our Green Tea Glycerin soap contains a high percentage of glycerin so water beads may form on its surface as it draws moisture from the air. This is referred to as “Soap sweat“.
Soap Sweat doesn’t affect your soap’s quality or ability to clean. It just happens that when your soap is in a humid environment it will attract moisture and this is exactly the intention.
Glycerin is a humectant which means it absorbs and attracts ambient water and so, attracts moisture to your skin but it also means the soap requires a place to dry out between uses. (Soap Saver) The glycerin in soap helps moisturize your skin and seal in moisture.
