I have hard that even organic soaps can have chemical residues from the processes used to sterilize the containers. (as in the liquid soap bottles)
Can you shed some light on this subject and ..What chemicals/processes do you use in the preparation of the soap bottles.
Wow! Another great question.
As a certified organic factory everything that might touch or contaminate the soap is looked at. Certified organic means audited natural and most certifiers take their jobs very seriously. If the product is CERTIFIED ORGANIC it is as safe as they can make it and you can be assured no extra artificial disinfectant is used in your bottle.
Our factory cleaner is alcohol. We rinse out our filling hose and lines with a hot water rinse, then we follow with alcohol. This evaporates off in about 10 minutes, but our protocol is to wait at least a ½ hour before using to be sure.
Soap washes away germs, so we do not pre-disinfect ANY bottles we fill here. Every extra step adds time and money and we prefer keeping our bottles sealed in bags inside boxes until we use them to trying to pre-treat a bottle.
