Can someone explain what makes bases have a soapy feel again?

The alkali in the base makes it feel soapy. I think Professor Lavelle gave an example during class like if you run your hands under water but it still feels soapy (even though you're not using soap) it's because of the alkali in the water.

There are soft salts that dissociates in water that gives water the soapy feel

bases also react with acids on human skin, which influences how they feel

As Dr. Lavelle explained, the soapy feeling is attributed to the soft salts already present in the water.
