What is a surgras soap?

The surgras soap is a product particularly enriched in superfatting agents. These clean the skin while preserving the hydrolipidic film. Handcrafted, this soap is cold saponified. It is usable for all parts of the body and it has a soft and pleasant texture. It leaves the skin perfectly clean, supple and well hydrated.

Ingredients in a surgras soap

Made according to the same recipe as a classic soap, surgras soap is, as its name suggests, particularly enriched with superfatting agents. It contains vegetable oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil or rice bran oil, and vegetable butters such as shea butter or cocoa butter. It is also composed of a good dose of glycerin. It may contain agents of animal origin such as lanolin, the wax obtained from wool fat (ingredients of animal origin are particularly present in surgras soaps from an industrial production method).
In general, the best surgras soaps are those that are manufactured and marketed by soap makers because these craftsmen still use traditional and non-industrial manufacturing processes with cold saponification.

Why choose a superfatted soap?

The superfatting agents present in surgras soap optimize hydration, protection and restoration of the fatty film of the epidermis (called hydrolipidic film). By using a surgras soap, there is no risk of altering the hydrolipidic film of the skin. On the contrary, this soap nourishes and protects.

This product lathers like any soap, but its lather is somewhat different from conventional soap due to its skin-friendly composition.

Surgras soap has the particularity (and the advantage!) of being usable all year round, whatever the season. It can provide the necessary elements to nourish the skin during both cold and hot seasons. It also protects the epidermis against various external aggressions.

Surgras soap and shower oil

Both types of shower products are made with natural ingredients. They are rich in nutrients and are moisturizing for the skin. They can thus both help dry skin regain its softness and a hydrolipidic film in good condition (the latter is a protective barrier fighting against microbes and bacteria. It also protects the skin against other external aggressions which can dry it out or reduce its flexibility).

The formulations of these two products are similar but they are not completely identical. However, they allow you to enjoy the same benefits for dry to normal skin. What mainly makes the difference between the two types of products is their texture. Surgras soap is available in liquid or solid form and its application is the same as that of a classic soap. Shower oil, on the other hand, is only available in liquid form. It then turns into foam once in contact with water and skin.

Who can use surgras soap?

The surgras soap is ideal for sensitive skin because it cleans in depth while being soft, non-aggressive. As it softens, moisturizes and heals cracked skin, it also stands as an effective solution for people who have croc skin.

Having a low PH, surgras soap is also suitable for children and babies. With it, the skin retains its naturally soft and smooth appearance without the risk of allergy problems. An ideal product, therefore, for our little ones!
If this soap seems perfect for the whole family, it is nevertheless not recommended for people with oily skin to use it because it can cause dermatological complications and cause pimples, especially on the face and back. The reasons are simple:Superfatted soap contains oily components that can smother pores that are already clogged with sebum.

Good to know about surgras soap

The surgras soap can be used as a treatment in its own right. Its use therefore makes it possible to do without moisturizing oils or even lotions. Although its PH is low, before using it, it is good, especially in case of skin problems, to seek the advice of a professional such as a dermatologist or a beautician. This can indicate whether or not the product is suitable for the needs.

Surgras soap is also an economical soap that can easily replace bottles of shower gel. It can be used to wash the face, the whole body and the hair. Nevertheless, it is necessary to be well informed about the ingredients with which it was made. It can be used to wash sensitive people such as pregnant women or babies.
As far as conservation is concerned, a surgras soap must be placed on a ventilated soap dish with a grid or holes.

The superfatted soap model obtained by cold saponification foams less than the industrial model. However, it is more beneficial since it does not contain any chemical ingredients. It therefore does not risk drying out the skin.
