手工皂使用說明

阿娥手工皂使用說明

因為手工皂具有天然的甘油成分,相較於市售商業肥皂,硬度較軟,尤其在浴室的潮溼環境中,皂體遇水容易出現軟、爛的情形。建議在不使用手工皂的其他時間,保持手工皂以及浴室的乾燥。

可以考慮一次開兩塊手工皂,交替使用。讓手工皂在不使用的那一天有機會乾燥恢復硬度,隔天再使用的時候,就不會遇水立刻軟化而迅速溶解。這樣也可以延長手工皂的壽命。

【關於洗髮皂】一般沒有接觸過洗髮皂的人,一開始會比較不習慣以固體皂洗頭的感覺。原則上先沖水把頭髮完全弄溼,沖掉頭髮上的汗垢。再以洗髮皂搓揉出泡沫,按摩洗淨頭皮、髮絲、不要讓泡沫在頭上停留,儘快從髮根向髮尾方向沖水,儘可能沖乾淨。頭髮較長者在洗頭後會覺得髮絲乾澀,這是水質硬度與皂垢造成的,可以使用檸檬酸、檸檬汁或醋潤絲。頭髮乾了以後,再抹一點植物油護髮。不要在頭髮濕濕的時候梳頭,等吹乾再梳。

手工皂一般保存期限為一~二年,某些皂種可能因為選擇的油品,或添加了新鮮的芳香藥草的緣故,在置放過久後出現油斑,或甚至有油耗味或酸敗的情形。有這種情形,或是洗後皮膚有任何不適,就不宜再使用這塊手工皂。

如果您的膚質屬於敏感性肌膚,或有特殊的過敏、異位性皮膚炎的話,建議您在用手工皂之前,先在手臂上局部使用,沒有出現異狀之後就可以安心使用。

有其他使用上的問題與建議,請 email 給阿娥,我會努力解答。也誠心希望你的肌膚、頭皮、髮絲在使用手工皂後,都可以被呵護得很健康。


How to Use and Store Cold-Processed Soaps


Claire’s Handmade Soap follows traditional cold-process soapmaking method. All soaps are handmade in small batches with various plant oils and lye. Cold-process soaps contains higher levels of glycerin in comparison to commercial soaps, making handmade soaps more soft and easier to dissolve in humid environment. We recommend that you store your soap in a dry space when not in use. You may also wish to alternate between bars of soap, allowing each bar of soap ample time to dry and harden. This will make your soaps last longer.


REGARDING SHAMPOO BARS


We have been trained to use liquid shampoo over the years, it may take some getting used to when it comes to shampoo bars. Start by wetting your hair completely, then apply the shampoo bar directly onto your hair to lather. When you feel like you have enough foam/soap to clean your hair, put the soap aside. Then rub the lather onto your scalp and give it a good massage. When you are done cleaning, rinse off thoroughly with water. If you live in an area with hard water (higher mineral content), you may wish to rinse off your hair with diluted vinegar to reduce soap scum.  Since cold-processed shampoo bars do not contain silicone (additives in commercial shampoo to give your hair the shine and smoothness), it is recommended that you do not comb or style your hair until after you have blow-dried or waited for your hair to dry.


If kept well in a cool, dry and dark space, handmade soap’s shell life can be as long as 2 years and up. Depending on the formulas of the soap, if higher percentage of multi-unsaturated fats are used, it may be more prone to oxidization and spoilage. As long as there’s no rancid smell from the soap, it is in general safe to use.


If you have really sensitive and irritable skin or suffers specific skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis or psoriasis, you may wish to test the soap on your forearm to make sure no ingredients of the soap bar can cause discomfort to you skin.


We hope you enjoy Claire’s Handmade Soap and happy cleaning!
