Most commercial soaps have gone back to basics with the ingredients it seems. It's what they suck out of the soap that, IMO, that makes it unworthy.

It was hard to argue with her reasoning, even if a little misguided, and now I believe people do not do things like that out of spite - just a little misunderstanding, and it really does come from a place of caring and love. (at least IME it was/is)
Of course that's why! My SIL bought me a soap that resembled a beach with waves when they went to the east coast. I thought it was very thoughtful that she thought of me while on vacation!
But back to the original question, I dread the use of bought soap because I remember scratching all over when I used to use it.

I never thought about it that way. It at least shows they know what your hobbies and interests are, I guess. Interesting!

lol, and here I was feeling awful because I have like a 3 month supply, and I was making all these soap for the bazaar, and worried it would not sell.
