Okay, this is one of those silly little questions that's been stuck at the back of my head for years. Those Ivory soap ads always call it " They never specify. Any ideas? Didnt you see fight club? Pure human fat.
Pure ass. It smells like someone puked and then dropped into a bucket of pine-sol. It's ivory from pure African Elephant tusks WTF is with that stuff? Soap is supposed to smell Wasn't it the first bar of soap that would float when dropped in water? Prior to it all bars of soap sank. I believe it's actually The soap is whipped until it's nice and frothy, then pressed into bars.
The air is what makes it float. Actually I read somewhere,that ivory used to sink Ivory has to be the worst soap on the market. Mm, I love Ivory soap. That shit is harsh and it doesn't smell like a French Whore. Yeah, I'm obsessive-compulsive, what's it to you? Ivory is the the last 'soap' on the market today.
The other 'soaps' on the market are detergent based soaps.I had this question myself after visiting your booth at the farmer's market. I think I am going to go to move over to all natural soap soon.

That is a terrific move! My suggestion is that you really read the labels. Often, there are "natural" soaps that have artificial fragrances.
If the label says "fragrance" that usually means it is synthetic. Don't be fooled by buzzwords--if it is not an essential oil, it is not natural! Be healthy. Thanks for your information, I want to share something about this. Natural Soap We have bought some premade molds and are now learning how to make some molds of our own. We also want to keep a stock of additives and fragrances that you can pick to customize your soaps. Making your own molds sounds great!
Most have sulfates and other inorganic chemical additives that you do not want--and fragrance oils are also chemical additives that are an issue for many people. If it is not an essential oil, I always advise staying away from it, as it is NOT a natural scent. Things to keep in mind if you are going to call soap "natural. Sandra, How about a bit about soap dishes which help protect your fine soaps?

April 09, I always wondered what that meant How does floating make a soap "pure" and what does a soap's integrity have to do with its ability to not sink to the bottom of the bath tub? First, I read the label. Mostly that means there is animal fat, some palm and coconut oil, salt, acids probably to balance the pHglycerine soap byproducts to moisturizeartificial fragrance; and a preservative, Tetrasodium EDTA, which is made from formaldehyde and sodium cyanide.
Tetrasodium EDTA is also a penetration enhancer which breaks down the skin's protective layer. It seems a little risky to me. The link for "Ivory.
Do you want the details? Me either. Ironically, it is impossible to find the actual ingredient list on the Dove site. You have to go to the Amazon link to find the ingredients.
Now for the good stuff Bronner's and Shepherd's Harvest!Many of the products we use to get clean—soaps, facial cleansers and body washes—might actually be doing us more harm than good.
One of the main ways your body acquires nutrients, other than eating, is transdermally— through the skin. Your skin is your largest organ — 22 square feet on average—and 60 percent of the substances you put on it are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream.
This semipermeable membrane allows us to absorb vitamins and minerals, but, unfortunately, it absorbs harmful chemicals we put on it, too.
Chemicals in common soaps are no joke. They can disrupt our hormones, promote allergies, lead to reproductive issues and increase risk of some cancers. With serious side effects like these, we need to be particular about what we put on our skin. Here are four chemicals I watch out for when buying soap and you should, too :.
Constant exposure to fragrances has been shown to negatively impact the central nervous system and can trigger allergies, migraines and asthma symptoms. These ingredients are estrogen mimickers—meaning that once applied to the skin, they enter the bloodstream, and the body mistakes them for estrogen. When the body thinks there is an abnormally high amount of estrogen present in the bloodstream due to the presence of these hormone disrupters, it reacts in various ways: decreasing muscle mass, increasing fat deposits, causing early onset of puberty and spurring reproductive difficulties in both men and women.
These chemicals are used to produce lather and bubbles in soap. They are also irritants for people with sensitive skin or eczema. This chemical is most often found in antibacterial soap. Recent studies have found that triclosan actually promotes the emergence and growth of bacteria resistant to antibiotic cleansers.
It also creates dioxin, a carcinogen that has been found in high levels in human breast milk. Dioxins have disruptive effects on the endocrine system and negatively affect thyroid functions. Think about it. If we are washing our bodies with soap that contains harmful ingredients every single day, this adds up over a lifetime to wreak havoc on our health.

Asked in Shopping What did a bar of soap cost in ?
Soap varied in price depending on its company and private sore owners. The average bar of Ivory soap cost 10 cents in Asked in Soaps and Detergents What is the hypothesis if expanding soap? If the heating of water inside a bar of Ivory soap can cause a chemical reaction, then the results will be in the expansion of the soap? The mixing process used in making Ivory Soap adds air into the bar, reducing its density and making it less dense than water.
No it won't unless it says it on the packaging. Mild just means without a lot of additives, perfumes and dyes, such as Ivory bar soap!
Ivory soap is the only soap that can float.It made my face more oily and I developed cystic acne. Plus stop telling kids who develop teenage acne to use this at least tell them to use aveeno soap or a cleansing gel this is terrible for acne prone people especially teenage acne. This also does not help with my body acne either. Love Ivory! A lot of reviewers complain about a fragrance in this but I haven't noticed a scent at all.
I used to use the liquid body wash version of this but found this is more economical as well. This is so far the best soap I ever ever used on my face is so health and great for the face I would recommend this if u have acne and pores also if u get pimples a lot.
I never had acne during puberty like the other kids. I never would of known it was the soap unless I had stopped using it when I got older basically because I hated the way the smell reminded me of my Mom. After spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on products for acne I decided to try and see if it was good ol Ivory that had my face so clear when I was a kid. This 54 year old would like to Thank you Ivory! Nothing special just your regular drying bar of soap!
Use to use this all the time as a kid in the bath???????? Ivory soap dries out my skin. I have sensitive skin and I find the scent too irritating. I've switched from Dove to Ivory. It smells so fresh and keeps my face clear without drying it out. A lot of people have said it is drying but I don't find it any more drying than Dove. My face broke out one day after using a different soap and I used Ivory that night and woke up without any acne.
Im trying out ivory and ivory with aloe and so far the regular ivory dries my face and leaves red patches on my cheeks but for my body its good i like how it lathers and has a clean feel. I like the ivory with aloe even more for my body.
I get very itchy and ivory with aloe calmed that issue for me. I haven't used that one on my face yet though. I used to use olay bar soap for my face it was good but drying so now im trying out kirks castile soap and ivory for my face and so far kirks castile is winning.
Both are drying but ivory dries my face more and kirks lathers with ease so face wise its kirks and body wise i think ill go stock up on ivory because its something about the bars that i like maybe the light airiness and the rich lather in the shower idk but it is a soap i overlooked all these years but its cheap price wise and good quality. I really like this soap.
I've been using it for a year and switched to this because Cetaphil made my skin flake. I looked like I had dandruff on my face, but now my skin is back to normal. Ivory is cheap and I find that it cleanses my skin very well. I used for many years switched to Dove last year now going back to Ivory my skin on my face feels horrible now and Ivory did not do that at all.
Great product for my 69 yr old face. Never switching again. Ivory Soap. Write Review.Do you think those products will lower your risk of getting sick, spreading germs or being infected? According to the U.
In addition, the wide use of these products over a long time has raised the question of potential negative effects on your health.
After studying the issue, including reviewing available literature and hosting public meetings, in the FDA issued a proposed rule requiring safety and efficacy data from manufacturers, consumers, and others if they wanted to continue marketing antibacterial products containing those ingredients, but very little information has been provided. It does not apply to hand sanitizers or hand wipes.
It also does not apply to antibacterial soaps that are used in health care settings, such as hospitals and nursing homes. Antibacterial soaps sometimes called antimicrobial or antiseptic soaps contain certain chemicals not found in plain soaps. Those ingredients are added to many consumer products with the intent of reducing or preventing bacterial infection.
Many liquid soaps labeled antibacterial contain triclosan, an ingredient of concern to many environmental, academic and regulatory groups. Animal studies have shown that triclosan alters the way some hormones work in the body and raises potential concerns for the effects of use in humans. And some manufacturers have begun to revise these products to remove these ingredients.
How do you tell if a product is antibacterial? Also, a Drug Facts label on a soap or body wash is a sign a product contains antibacterial ingredients. Triclosan can be found in many places today.
What Are the Chemical Ingredients in Ivory Liquid Dishwashing Soap?
It has been added to many consumer products—including clothing, kitchenware, furniture, and toys—to prevent bacterial contamination. In addition, laboratory studies have raised the possibility that triclosan contributes to making bacteria resistant to antibiotics.
Some data shows this resistance may have a significant impact on the effectiveness of medical treatments, such as antibiotics. This joint effort will help to ensure government-wide consistency in the regulation of this chemical. The two agencies are reviewing the effects of triclosan from two different perspectives. The EPA regulates the use of triclosan as a pesticide, and is in the process of updating its assessment of the effects of triclosan when it is used in pesticides.
By sharing information, the two agencies will be better able to measure the exposure and effects of triclosan and how these differing uses of triclosan may affect human health. The EPA reevaluates each pesticide active ingredient every 15 years. Manufacturers are developing and planning to submit new safety and effectiveness data for these ingredients.
With the exception of those three ingredients that are still under study, all products that use the other 19 active ingredients will need to change their formulas or they will no longer be available to consumers. Manufacturers will have one year to comply with the rule.
The FDA recently issued a final rule on OTC hand sanitizers and will continue to review the three active ingredients commonly used in hand sanitizers. To learn about the difference between consumer hand sanitizers and consumer antibacterial soaps, visit our consumer information page.
So what should consumers do? Wash your hands with plain soap and water.
