It is made from the rendered corpses of criminal asylum seekers.

soaps are made by saponification .... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saponification

get a bucket of fat or oil and get it to the right temp and put in lye, (red devil) is what my sisters use... then it turns to a good glycerin packed soap leaving the skin nice and smooth.
Organic soap, used organic fats or oils. What are Organic fats and oils... let's see what The Google tells us. ..... http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/so...ngredients.asp

"Organic essential oils are obtained from plants that have not been chemically treated, and the soil is usually certified to be chemical free for a certain number of years. Many oils are organic by nature (conifer oils for instance), however, they may not be backed by certification. This does not mean the oil is poor quality. It simply means that the producer did not have the oil certified as organic."

Re: Handmade organic soap from Weggis

Thank you, it sounds really environmentally friendly.

Instead of using a dead cow, you grind up vegetation to release the oils then bring it round the world, so you can make soap and wash your hands.

No red devil here. You need to ask at the "drogerie"

You can have organic soap made with tallow. Why not? You just need some bio dead cows.

yeah, I've tried their experiments with animal fat... it smells like rancid oil, I like Olive, Soy bean or some other plant fat better.

I know you can't get things in Switzerland... that's why I said lye and then just mentioned Red Devil so it can trigger the memories of those who lived in the US

Fresh commercially/professionally rendered tallow shouldn't smell. If it smells like rancid oil, it is rancid oil.

I just meant you can't get lye at the supermarket. You can get it. Just have to find a drogerie.

Re: Handmade organic soap from Weggis

Weggis also makes Starbucks coffee machines.

And celebrates Swiss music once a year.

And has a Rose Queen.

And has the quickest way to get up to Rigi Kaltbad.

It used to have a "Dancing" but nobody ever visited it.

Wow! You learn something new every day. You (we, someone?) should start "My town has... " or "This Swiss town has.... "

I knew someone was going to say that!
Nothing happens in my post code....

PS, I did mean to say, it doesn't have to be your own town. Some interesting fact about a town like Oly wrote.

I also found this info and it is not helpful. I wanted to know what ingredients are in the soap, not info about the company or about the town.

Web: www.thermoplan.ch

You also forgot to mention that Wäggis,(as we all say),is very famous for their cute little song every Swiss person is raised up;and knows by heart:
