Manufacturing of our Original Florex sheep milk soap
Florex sheep milk soaps are products that consist from dismantling plant based fats and oils. For our soaps we only use organic sheep milk from Austria.
During manufacturing our sheep milk soaps the first step is to mix and then boil the plant based fats and oils with a sodium hydroxid solution. This procedure is called soap boiling, the chemical reaction that occurs is called saponification. With this process the plant based fats and oils get split up into glycerin and the actual soap. The resulting so called "curd soap" gets roughly mixed while in the mixing unit, the product resulting from this process is mixed with dye, sheep milk, herbs, essential oils and the skin friendly sheep wool fat - lanolin. Afterwards the bulk, called dough, gets transferred into the rolling mill to get a homogenous mass and achieve a glossy sheen.
The next step is to roll out the soap mass to a paper thin sheet. The soap then gets further handled into the extruder where the sheets get shaped into a block. Lastly our sheep milk soaps get punched into the right shape by a punching machine.
Fragrance and colour
Fragrance is one of the most important quality features for a good soap. There are different ways of adding fragrance: synthetically made aromatic oils, herbs or essential oils. For our big fragrance assortment we use both synthetic aromatic oils and essential oils.
Colour gives our soaps a fresh looking and pretty appearance because not only fragrance is important, but colour also contributes to the finished look. Our colour palette reaches from pastel tones all the way to vibrant colours, because the colours are used to positively emphazise every single fragrance. For colouring our soaps we use synthetic dyes as well as natural ones. We also use the dye safely upon the command of cosmetics regulation.
Every year our assortment is growing with new fragrances, colours and shapes.
