What Else Does Australian Soap Make?
All we make are beautiful soaps. We are a soap company and live and breathe soap! There are not many soap companies that make French milled natural soap bars. It requires a significant investment and takes years of experience but the French milling process makes the best and longest lasting soap bars. When you buy soap you want a quality natural soap that lasts a long time and therefore really good value.
Do You Wholesale Soaps?
Yes we have many customers that buy soap to resell. Please use our wholesale application. In addition to our dozen packs we also sell bulk soap bars for significant savings.
How Long Will An Australian Soap Natural Soap Bar Last?
Our soap will last much longer than you would think. It is triple milled in the French tradition and triple milled again for purity and smoothness. Once the soap goes through the double refiner, the process is complete. The result is a dense and long lasting soap with creamy lather and a fragrance that lasts until the final sliver is gone.
Our soap bars are an excellent bath soap because they do not dissolve when in the water. As many of you know, the natural soaps sold by most vendors dissolve quickly and you have to keep them out of sitting water. Bars from other vendors are normally poured (not French milled) and dissolve too quickly. Our bars are dense and do not have air pockets in the soap which allow the water to "melt" the soap bars.
Do You Sell Body Wash
Absolutely not! Body wash is simply water with chemicals to create a lather. It is not good for your skin, is cheap to make and the only expensive part is the container it comes in. Our soap bars are made from plant oils, shea butter and vegetable glycerin all of which are good for your skin, non-drying and has a natural creamy lather. Our soap bars also last a long time whereas body wash gets used quickly.

Saponification is completed when all the sodium hydroxide and plant oils have been converted into soap and glycerine.

Do You Sell Anti-Bacterial Soap?
No, they are not effective according to the FDA
"Popular antibacterial soaps and washes are no more effective at preventing illness than plain -- and less expensive -- soap and water, an FDA advisory panel warned. The experts said it may not be worth the risk of spawning resistant bacteria.
The panel's conclusion could eventually lead to stricter regulation of hundreds of antibacterial products, now often sold with the suggestion that they offer an advantage over traditional cleansers.
Antibacterial soaps and alcohol-based hand gels are widely used by hospitals and clinics where they have shown some benefit in cutting the risk of patient-to-patient infections. But the products are also widely sold to the general public despite evidence that hand washing with regular soap and water is just as effective.
