Soaps are mixtures of fatty acids and salt that work as cleaning agents to remove dirt and oils from the skin. Soaps can also act as surfactants, meaning they reduce the surface tension of water by allowing it to spread more easily across the body, helping to lift particles and bacteria away from the skin to be washed away. Soaps are essential for maintaining personal hygiene and are used in households, industries and laboratories.
