We want to source homemade handmade soaps to fight the coronavirus .We explain why they are effective below.
Soap of all types- all natural, hand made, liquid, bar, or foamy–has a specific molecular makeup, and is comprised of so called “soap molecules.” Soap molecules possess both hydrophobic (water-averse) and hydrophilic (water-attracting) properties. When mixed with water, the water-attracting parts of the tiny soap molecule point outward and, can dissolve fatty substances and lipids.Now why is this important?
COVID-19 is a coronavirus and coronaviruses are a class of viruses which are encased in a envelope made up of fatty substances.Soap can dissolve this protective covering and literally take apart the virus. Washing your hands with water after this, removes the virus from your skin completely!
So when you wash your hands with soap and water, you clear the virus and the biomaterial associated with it from your skin. So are handmade soaps okay to use? Yes.in fact they're great because after all, they are still soap.
