What's in it for me?
Soap, phonetically sounds like SO APP, and then say it over and over it becomes soapah. Its a strange word, and how did it become known as soap? History dates soap back to 2800 BC. According to https://www.cleaninginstitute.org/ “Soap got its name from an ancient Roman legend about Mount Sapo. Rain would wash down the mountain mixing with animal fat and ashes, resulting in a clay mixture found to make cleaning easier.” They only used this sudsing substance for cleaning their clothes.
Much of soap making happened early in European history primarily due to the supply oils needed to make soap, and was used for skin diseased and washing. When Rome fell, bathing went out the window too. It was a stinky time, and cause a lot of sickness, including bubonic plague or The Black Death in the 14th century. It took about 300 years for soap to make a come back, primarily to the rich until the tax was removed in the 19th century. Now, all kinds of soap is available to you and I, however most of them are available through handcrafters making soap the way it was intended to be made, with natural ingredients. What most people call soap, and what you find in stores are chemicals, also known as detergents. Don’t be fooled because it suds, read the ingredients and ask yourself, what’s in it for me?
At L & E we use nothing but the best ingredients that are natural, sustainable and just down right good.
Simple - it’s just soap
