The first time I made Beer Soap, it was just scented with a beer fragrance oil. At the time I didn’t understand why anyone would want that scent. After all, old beer really smells bad. Little did I know, until recently, there is another side to beer soap and actually I was and am still intrigued by what I learned. Now we know that when making soap a chemical change takes place and all of the ingredients put into a batch of soap is not the same after the process is finished.
First, in cold processed soap usually water and lye are mixed together added to oils and through soaponification, soap is created. Well, in this case beer is used in place of the water and mixed with the lye. I added to the batch some mica for color and fragrance. But, the beer transformed and is no longer beer, but the hops, grains, extracts and other good stuff remains in the soap leaving some very interesting results. Now, please check out this article in the link below. It will better explain the interesting and beneficial facts of Beer soap. http://blog.drsquatch.com/the-wonderful-world-of-beer-soap/
