ASDA's experiments with soap

| 1 Comment

When my local ASDA stopped selling their "Smart Price" soap I had to buy it from other ASDAs or get other people to buy it for me. This worked ok for a while but then they changed to poor quality soap that falls apart. Based on the list of ingredients, when they make soap with Sodium Palmate it stays together but when they make it from Sodium Tallowate it falls apart. They now have other variants in my local ASDA that don't fall apart.
