I'm doing a lot of research on making soaps, ingredients, and the properties of those ingredients. I learned today that soap doesn't get absorbed through the skin so what's the point in using expensive ingredients that won't do anything and then how do you separate yourself from another company when it's all about scent and design? I wanted to be different than seeing the 10,000 lavender bar. I came up with an idea to use valerian, blue tansy, butterfly pea flowers because I read valerian can act as a sedative and the others have a calming effect, but if it doesn't get absorbed through the skin then what can it really do? I need some help here. I really want to do this because I love creating and it's exciting, but I also want people to like the soaps.
