  • 手工皂添加精油

    手工皂-添加精油

    首先,説到手工皂很多人的刻板印象都是會説聞起來氣味是香香的。 手工皂添加精油還是香精哪個比較好? 這裏先不論對錯或好壞,就視乎于你對於手工皂的個別要求來做對比。精油的氣味本來就不持久,雖然天然精油具有很好的杀菌、除菌效果。所以添加在手工皂中是不是可以增加手工皂的抗菌效果让手工皂的保存期限可以久一些呢? 我们给皂里加精油主要看中它的香味。實際上,其功效性的作用在做手工皂碱性的环境下,还能存留多少谁也说不清楚。因为精油本身就是个很复杂的化合物。所以,有些人会想借助精油的杀菌功能達到抗菌功效其實效果并不顯著。手工皂主要是靠溶于水后所产生的界面活性劑随着水流的力道冲洗掉,所以手工皂可以清除细菌污垢是无庸置疑的特点。同樣的添加入手工皂的精油大部分也會隨著被分解隨水分解掉。而且,手工皂本身就是弱碱性。大部分的细菌本来也就無法在手工皂的弱碱性环境下存活。因此,只要制做得当、不乱加添加物质量好的手工皂放好几年都不会坏。 所以,没有必要借助精油的特性来让手工皂抗菌以增加保存期限的作用。而在晾乾手工皂的過程中,精油也會隨著水分的蒸發跟著揮發不少。故添加價格昂貴的精油在整個過程中能保留的實在是極少而已。精油加入手工皂的比例是1公斤重量,也只能添加10ml的精油。經驗上,晾乾后可以使用的的精油手工皂在聞起來是淡淡的香味。在洗澡使用過程中也能聞得到,但能殘留在身上的氣味發揮作用實在是很少也很清淡而已哦。所以,有經濟能力也想使用的可以試試。不然,個人還是建議把珍貴和昂貴的精油用來製成按摩油比較能達到精油的效果。 至於,想要手工皂的香味持久的芬芳前者提到精油的實際作用在保留氣味上作用不大。那能聞起來香香而且香味能比較持久的的就是香精了。但香精是一種化學合成物質,在清潔品或保養品中的作用只是為了掩蓋其他成份的味道。若手工皂沒有添加任何精油或者香精,聞起來就是清淡的原始的油脂味道。不算是香但也稱不上臭的一種天然氣味。如果,不嫌棄的話對於嬰兒或者膚質敏感的人群個人還是比較建議使用天然無任何添加物的手工皂。由於,精油的揮發性強在還沒使用前,精油已揮發所剩無幾了。不僅無法掩蓋它的原始的油脂味道,還喪失精油的功能。香精是一種化學合成物質,因此在手工皂中一般不會加太多,通常手工皂的香精的含量約佔整個重量的1%~2% 若有個別需求要添加香味還是香精爲之理想過精油。 手工皂而言,它著重在是否能清潔身體肌膚。但使用過多的香精,確實對肌膚是有不良的影響的。許多人選用手工皂時的第一動作,就是聞一聞香味如何?也常常以香味來決定對香皂的喜好。若是想製作手工香皂送人,這一點是必須要考慮的。不知情人士對手工香皂的觀感的從香味開始,故市售的香皂香味特別的濃,是有市場價值所在的道理。至於,判斷手工皂要添加精油或香精的好壞就取決與個別需求。 如何判斷天然精油和香精的差別? 精油是什麼?根據維基百科對於精油的解釋來看:精油是从植物的花、叶、茎、根或果實中,通过水蒸气蒸馏法是提取植物性天然香料的最常用的一种方法。精油又分稀释的(複方精油)和未经稀释的(單方精油)。精油的挥发性很强,一旦接触空气就会很快挥发,而精油必须用密封的深色瓶子储存 是爲了避光而加快氧化的速度,常見的精油罐子顔色是深褐色或深藍色。以下會做個簡短的精油特點。 精油的主要特點: 天然香精油或天然植物萃取精华的原味,代替人工合成香精。有芳香疗法之效果,不刺激皮肤。 不含化学色素并不表示无颜色,只是以天然植物或生化萃取代替原色。 不含防腐剂—以天然的小麥胚芽油、红萝卜油为抗氧化剂,防止产品腐坏。 不含矿物油脂—全使用植物性透气脂或不油腻的透气性脂,代替过度油腻的矿物油、羊毛油,使用后滋润,吸收快。 完全不含人工香精,羊毛脂、酒精、化学性防曬剂、色素等会引起过敏的成分,而对每一次添加使用之原料,经过实验证明,对人体不会产生刺激。 无不良化学成分—使用每一项原料,皆经过安全性试验及毒性试验。不含汞、铅等重金属物质,或其它不良有害化学成分。 單方精油,單一植物來源的純精油。所謂的單方精油可單獨作為薰香使用,最常見的單方精油,同時也是新手容易入門的精油有:香茅,薰衣草,茶樹油,薄荷,檸檬,玫瑰…… 複方精油,就是將幾種單方精油通過比例而調配成的精油,是為了達到特定療癒目的而調配成的精油。像是幫助入眠、幫助放鬆、解放壓力、擁有好心情等身心方面的療癒。另外,複方精油也可以單獨作為薰香使用,也可以添加基底油或是按摩油稀釋後塗抹身體使用。 以上所提及的精油的特點都是人工合成香精無法取代或者仿冒的。有一點需要注意的是有些便宜精油可能是透過稀釋或多次蒸餾,所以價格相對便宜唯氣味無法持久和導致效果無法如預期理想而已。例如,添加過度稀釋或多次蒸餾的精油添加入手工皂,則會讓手工皂在晾乾后香味幾乎都被氧化完。若遇到品質劣的嚴重則會讓手工皂在後期敗壞。而部分商家會添加人工合成的香精做標準化,畢竟天然植物的氣味會隨著環境或品質而有少許變異。所以,當你瞭解天然植物和操作系統后即使是有機認證的商家也好爲了要保固產品的品質要添加一些化學穩定劑也是在所難免的。退而求其次,無論是添加入手工皂或者塗抹身體或嗅吸精油都是爲了達到療效只要盡量減少化學成分也是無大礙的。關於,如何分辨真假還是需要以身試用和參考各家精油來做比較就能有所體會了。 精油添加入手工皂能保留功效嗎? 做皂過程是一連串的化學變化,因為分子們必須面臨到酸鹼與溫度的劇變,特別是氫氧化鈉(NaOH)與氫氧化鉀(NaK)是強鹼,精油與純露整體為弱酸。精油添入皂一喇下去,加上酸鹼中和是放熱反應,因此分子更容易產生變化;一般上,皂友會遇到的化學反應就是trace,即使是在喇皂後期快light trace的時候加入也會產生激烈的化學變化。這時候就必須趕快!儘快!把皂液裝入模型!不然分子持續激勵變化所產生的高溫會讓皂液短時間内變異和變硬。當然也有一些分子相對穩定而不會受此狀況影響,所以在手工皂成品中我們還是能聞得出一些細微的氣味。因為精油分子在這麼不穩定的過程中已產生質變,前文也有提到實際上,其功效性的作用在做手工皂碱性的环境下,还能存留多少谁也说不清楚。因为精油本身就是个很复杂的化合物。還是需要再提起的比起作皂,直接調油按摩或嗅吸還比較能發揮精油的價值。 這次不論精油與香精的品質好壞,手工皂是會直接接觸到身體的,更何況身體有些部位的皮膚是比較薄、脆弱、或敏感的。若身體屬敏感體質,任何一種添加物都可能會是身體的刺激原、或是對身體代謝多加一份負擔。皂的添加物越多,那也代表身體會接觸更多負擔,是否這樣會提高一些過敏與接觸性刺激的隱憂?當然不排除製皂者基於商業或喜好的考量,而必須加精油與香精,但是,如果要加精油或香精的話也要從少量開始。其實,手工皂最主要是的功效是洗潔添加物的功效只占了5% 所以,個人認爲爲了長久還是使用成分單純的手工皂能減少隱憂哦。
