Why no shower gel?
Because a raw solid soap is a perfect alternative to shower gel : is is better preserved, it is light, lasts longer, and ecological: it contains no additive. It is hard to make the soap oneself though. It requires a saponification with sauda and can be dangerous for the skin if the reaction is not fully mastered. A common practice in “slow cosmetics” is to melt a raw soap and to add ingredients (vegetable and essential oils, herbs, etc.), the new soap solidifies while cooling. If you like to do if this way, it is safe ! Beware of burns though 😉
