For modern means, substances that can cause allergies and a number of other diseases, including dermatological ones, are used.
Household soap has long been known for its properties:

Periodically stir the mixture and graduallyAdd the rest of the water. When the chips are dissolved, leave the mixture for a while, so that it cools down a little. Then add all the other ingredients to it and stir well. The consistency of the liquid must be uniform.
Oils, dyes, flavors in our handmade soap are not worth adding, because it should be environmentally friendly.
