FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: How does CULT+KING WASH make suds if it doesn’t have SLS?
A: WASH is made through the process of saponification of oils, which is the way that true soap is made and has always been made. And true soap makes suds. If a shampoo bar is not made through saponification, SLS has to be added to make suds. This is what the traditional shampoos in plastic bottles are all about. Typically all the oils are saponified into the bar during the soap-making process unless the bar is “super-fatted.” WASH is “super-fatted,” meaning there are extra oils added over and above what are used in the saponification process. The extra oils actually create their own mild, smooth lather, which is soft on skin, scalp and hair.
Q: You say that WASH is cold-processed. What does that mean?
A: That means that instead of heating it up to 300 degrees in the soap-making process (boiling starts at 220 degrees), we only heat it up to 110 degrees so the heat doesn’t kill the botanicals. Heating soap to that high a temperature is like taking a beautiful organic meal and putting it in the microwave for 30 minutes. Our WASH is like eating that meal raw.
Q: Why is WASH shampoo bar not recommended for color treated hair? Will it pull out color or will it just not help color last?
A: The process of real soap results in a pH of about 9, which makes it great for cleaning. But the higher the pH, the more color that is pulled from the hair. All our other products sit at 4.5 pH which is where skin and hair fall. Shampoos marketed as “color-safe” typically include synthetic detergent to lower their pH. Though a lot of other companies don’t mention it, we want to be completely transparent about what is and isn’t in our products. If you do have color-treated hair, WASH is still amazing for your face, body and shaving. The best real soap you can buy.
