Traditional soap is made by 'saponifying' either an animal fat or vegetable oil by reacting it with a caustic dissolved in water.  The soap created is actually a salt with a natural byproduct called glycerin which is the component that makes your skin feel so great when you use real soap.  Many mass produced 'soaps' are actually detergents with other added chemicals or alcohol.
 
Wash Tyme soap is made from a vegetable glycerin base which is the byproduct of making biodiesel from used cooking oil.  This results in a much higher level of glycerin than other soaps and unique cleaning properties that no other soaps have.

 Oil Recycling
We care about what we expose our bodies to.  The used cooking oil we use in our biodiesel process is clear vegetable oil and is filtered to 15 microns (a human hair is 100 microns thick) and heated to 145F before it is made into biodiesel.  During this process it is mixed with an alcohol and caustic to split the glycerin from the oil molecules which then form biodiesel which is a biodegradable substitute for petroleum diesel and home heating oil! Please see our links page for more information about biodiesel.
 
The glycerin byproduct is then distilled to remove excess alcohol at temperatures in excess of 260F over a period of about 48 hours, effectively sterilizing it before undergoing a further process to make our final product.  To contrast- an autoclave used to sterilize medical equipment uses temps of 250F for 15-20 minutes.  This gives us a sterilized glycerin base which is free of bacterial residue and animal prions.

To scent our soaps we use mainly Essential Oils and Essential Oil Blends, or naturally derived fragrance oils.  Below you will find information about the different scents please visit this page.

Welcome to Biodiesel Glycerine Soap - The Guide. Now in it's fifth edition The Guide, as it is called, can be found on 5 continents, in the hands of new soap makers and in several universities (10) around the world, making of it the world's most read /used book on using the biodiesel by-product's glycerine layer for soap making.

This Guide is primarily for those who are already producing homebased biodiesel and would like to do something practical and constructive with the glycerine layer by-product, and also for those who would like to get into this new and exciting method and need biodiesel glycerine to get started (email us for contacts).

Don't be fooled by imitators and unscrupulous commercial interests who use unecessary bleaching chemicals, synthetics and gimmicks when producing biodiesel glycerine soaps when you can do it all naturally following the simple guidelines in The Guide.

Rather than being the impossible mission that some have claimed it to be, we have successfully produced both bar and liquid soaps suitable for personal hygene as a body and hair soap (replacing shampoo) as well as finding a multitude of other uses for this useful product (the above photo being only one example) from the home to industry.

The testimonials in The Guide demonstrate clearly that this do-it-yourself project is well worth the time and effort that it takes. You not only will have a superior product than what can be acquired commercially in the way of a glycerine soap, but you will also be recycling the voluminous glycerine by-product from the biodiesel reaction and earning yourself (and your family) a significant savings in yearly soap purchases.
