But why is TFM important?
- Fat content decides the softness and the lather generation of the soap
- It helps to cleanse the skin better
- Fatty acids are helpful for killing the germs.
TFM of 60% to 75% is considered good for general purpose usage. Higher the better.
Note: Too high fatty acids are super cleansing as they dry out the skin. However, commercial manufacturers won’t be making very high TFM soaps.
