Products that claim to soften skin or relief eczema are classified as drugs. Many of the over the counter products Arunkon had used on her boys would cause a lot of skin irritation and flare ups. Not knowing where to turn, Arunkon decided to create a natural product with fats and oils to create what the FDA classifies as "true soap". The process she learned to make soaps is called cold process.
Cold process soap making uses oils such as coconut or olive oil for example with an alkali such as Lye which produces a process called saponification. Saponification is the process where the combination of ingredients convert the lye and oils into soap. From this learning process, Simple Nut Organics was born, its core ingredient, the finest organic coconut oil.
