Hemp Soft Soap is an Amazing Eco Friendly Cleaning Product with Many Other Uses
At Natural Spa Supplies we make our own traditional Hemp Oil Soap, of which we are especially proud. This soft soap is gentle on the skin, unbelievably tough on grime and deadly to germs.
Traditional Soft Soaps have hundreds of uses – cleaning, professional shaving, washing, exfoliating, plant care and more. We know of over 1200 uses for soft soap, so we think that everybody will find a pot of it really useful!
Anti-Microbial Testing of the Hemp Oil Soap
I had been curious to find out how well the hemp oil soap killed germs. So I asked my favourite microbiologist to conduct some ‘challenge’ tests on it. He spent a week growing his microbial cultures and then added them to the hemp oil soap to see what happened. The results are checked after an hour, after 1 day and after 1 week.
There are normally three possible results:
1/ The bacteria and fungus love it and proliferate – that of course is a very bad result! Sometimes you can end up with more germs in the product because as bacteria are killed, they release more microbes from within themselves. Well that would be a complete fail.
2/ The germs neither multiply nor decrease. Again this soap would be quite useless.
3/ Or the germ colonies are decreased. You would expect most soaps to do this.
4/ We got the very unusual fourth possibility. All of the introduced bacteria were killed in the hemp oil soap within 1 hour. So that was a very speedy demise of 247 million colony forming units of Pseudomonas aeriginosa, 10 million colony forming units of Staphylococcus aureus and over 3 million colony forming units of Candida albicans. Just to be thorough the levels were checked after one day and one week and again – nothing. Next time I will ask my scientist to take a shorter lunch break to assess an even speedier test!
Very well done British Hemp Oil Soap!
