The Scoop on Wondercide Soap

Perhaps you’ve seen us call Wondercide soap – and our pet shampoo bars – “true” soap, but what does that really mean? With endless confusion surrounding liquid body washes, ideal pH levels, and mysterious detergents, it’s enough to make anybody want to skip bathtime! But now you can keep your pets & family clean and your facts straight with the full scoop on Wondercide soap.

Soap vs. Detergent

Soap is made from natural oil, whereas most detergents are made with petroleum. A good deal of liquid body washes and other skin cleaners are really detergents, but since some also have soap-like properties, the lines have become blurred. Wondercide makes a complete soap – NOT a detergent wash.

Soap Purity

Wondercide soap is mixed in a single run and never milled or broken down. The base of each soap is coconut oil, shea butter, palm oil and castor oil, to which natural essential oils are added.

Essential Oil Grades

Not all essential oils are created equal. Our soaps retain all the qualities of the original plant from which they’re derived. To be considered “Geranium oil,” for instance, an oil only needs to have certain qualities of the plant to be listed as such. Wondercide’s oils are part of what makes the soap so great, as many low-quality soaps contain the worst quality of oils instead.

The Great pH Debate

pH is mainly just an issue if unreacted lye is leftover in bad soap from the saponification process, in which case the soap could be irritating. Because Wondercide soap is handcrafted to retain 5% of the original oils and NO lye, pH is not an issue and the soap is totally ideal for cleaning skin on both people and pets. Glycerin and the various oils help to moisturize and retain the skin’s oil mantle, which keeps your skin from over-producing natural oils!
