I absolutely love being part of the Craft Coop in the Eden Shopping Centre in High Wycombe. I have all my Fizzy Fuzzy products in there, and I also work once a week in the store too.  It's got a great selection of local hand made items, so if you are ever in High Wycombe, pop in and say hello!

I was thrilled that the Fashion Director for the Daily Telegraph wrote about how great my shampoo bars

are on her Instagram page!  Thank you Lisa Armstrong!

Some interesting information about hygiene and bars of soap in a well documented scientific study...
 
“… soap bars were inoculated with E. coli and P. aeruginosa bacteria at levels 70 times as high as those reported on used soap bars. Then, 16 people were told to wash their hands as usual with the inoculated bars.


“After washing, none of the 16 panelists had detectable levels of either test bacterium on their hands,” the researchers wrote. “These findings, along with other published reports, show that little hazard exists in routine handwashing with previously used soap bars and support the frequent use of soap and water for handwashing.”

So how can a bar of soap have bacteria on it and yet not spread germs? Simply, washing is a two step process. When you lather up, the oil attracting end of the soap molecule picks up grease and oils on your skin. When you rinse, the water attracting end of the molecules follow the water, letting you rinse the soap molecules — and their attached impurities — away.

The new soap stars that are raising the bar

 

Bin that plastic bottle of shower gel. The soap bar is back – and better than ever, writes Claire Coleman

 

 

Bars of soap are back – and in a big way. Once thought to be old-fashioned, drying and harbourers of germs, we shunned them in favour of shower mousses and liquid soaps.

 

Now, though, we’ve fallen in love with them all over again. Data from Kantar Worldpanel show that in the year to September 2018, Britons spent £68.3 million on barred soaps. That’s up 2.9 per cent on the previous 12 months, confirming market analysis by Mintel in the preceding years.

 

Part of it is down to environmental concerns. A bar of soap requires minimal packaging and Kantar’s researchers found that almost half of bar soap users say that they avoid products that are harmful to the environment.

 

But what about the fears that soaps are astringent and unhygienic? Newer formulations no longer dry skin out, while several scientific papers dispute the theory that bars spread germs. Then there’s the luxury factor.

 

“Bar soaps are now slightly more indulgent than they have been in the past, as there is now a bigger opportunity for a more premium offering,” says Tim Nancholas of Kantar Worldpanel.
