Let’s face it, everyone loves a good lather! We have come to associate the effectiveness of our cleaning products with the amount of lather generated while being used. Did you know most soap and shampoos lather is artificially created because of customer demand, not because it is needed for cleaning? It’s very inexpensive to put chemicals into soaps and shampoos to make them lather unnecessarily, and the result is that we end up smearing more toxins onto our bodies than is healthy.
On a psychological level, people like to see something happening, but all you’re seeing is soap and shampoo molecules trapping air in spherical pockets. Trapped air in pockets doesn’t clean. The soap molecules in the water are what’s cleaning. Regardless, many shampoo and soap manufacturers add chemicals specifically to create bubbles throughout washing, just to satisfy people while they wash their hair or body. The only thing a bubble shows is how attracted the soap and shampoo molecule is to water, and not how attracted it is to dirt.
Factors That Can Impact The Size Of Bubbles
- Hard water vs. Soft water
Hard water reduces the effectiveness of cleaning agents (soap)
Bubbles don’t form easily in cold water
Hair & Skin Protection Tips

Ammonium lauryl sulfate
