The history of soap dates back to 2800 BC, When the excavation of Babylon was conducted, it was observed that there were soap formulas written on the clay.
Approximately 1500 BC, ancient Egyptians used animal and vegetable oils, combined with alkaline salts to create a soap-like-substance used for treating skin diseases as well as for washing. Bathing became popular in the Roman times. An entire soap factory was discovered in the ruins of Pompeii in 79 AD. The Romans exfoliated using abrasive substances like sand and pumice then scraped off the grime and dirt with sticks or a strigil. Luxurious scented baths and massages followed this exfoliation ritual, with perfumed oils. Pliny the Elder, whose writings chronicle life in the first century AD, describes soap as ‘an invention of the Gaul. he word sapo, Latin for soap, likely was borrowed from an early Germanic language.
After researching the science facts; chemical qualities of different oils, the active properties of botanicals, the results of saponification and the physical properties of lather and bubbles, the result produced a mild and gentle, homemade, natural soap. This homemade soap were milk soap.
