Nerdposeur's Journal: Soap box (literally)

Journal by Nerdposeur

Caress brand soap has a little slogan on their box: "Nature's Silk."

I find this amusing because, as far as I know, soap is made by humans in strong-smelling factories. You know what nature's silk is? SILK. Made by the 100 percent natural silk worm.

Dove is also silly, with their fixation on how "pure" their soap is. What does that even mean? It's not like soap is a chemical element. If I buy, for example, pure water, I know that I should be getting two Hs per O, and very little else.

I mean, I'm glad they're not putting bacon bits or bee parts in there, but really, I don't know what soap is made of to start with.
