Green soap is a soft soap made from vegetable oils with sodium or potassium hydroxide in concentrations adjusted to retain glycerol. The soap actually may be any color, depending on the oils added. Many people know this environmentally safe soap as a tattooistââ*€šÂ¬Ã¢*€žÂ¢s soap. Because itââ*€šÂ¬Ã¢*€žÂ¢s medically safe, it is often referred to as a ââ*€šÂ¬Ã…*€œtincture of green soapââ*€šÂ¬Ã‚*. A tincture is an alcoholic extract with a limited percentage of ethanol. This soap has earned its name due to its yellowish green hue. There is no dye in it. Instead, the vegetable oil and glycerin gives the soap its natural green tint.
Because tattoo soap is all-natural, it is generally non-irritating. It is also biodegradable, which may be another reason itââ*€šÂ¬Ã¢*€žÂ¢s dubbed a green soap. The same kind of soap is used by those handling bodies with skin disorders due to its cleansing and emollient properties. After tattooing or any other skin-irritating procedure, this type of green soap can make the skin feel somewhat soothed. Because of its oil content it doesnââ*€šÂ¬Ã¢*€žÂ¢t make skin feel as dry as other soaps.
Although there are many uses for green soap, the most common is using it in piercing studios and tattoo shops. Piercers and tattoo artists use it to prep skin, remove soil, blood, and ink, and as a soak for surgical instruments. Green soap makes an excellent pre-sterilization soak for surgical instruments. Soak to remove blood and soil. Remember this does not substitute sterilization using an autoclave or Ultrasonic sterilizer.

............................and above all, I like the smell of it!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
