We have briefly mentioned, “Why is natural soap better?”
💙 Reason 5 : Maintaining healthy skin
The body’s largest organ, our skin, is incredibly porous and absorbent. How we treat our skin can have a major impact on our overall health as well as the look and feel of our skin.
Many of our loyal customers have told us that our natural soap has not only helped improve their skin but has improved their lives by relieving itchiness, dryness, and easing skin conditions such as eczema, atopy, and zits.
Simple natural soaps tend to be more soothing for many skin types. Switching to the daily use of a simple natural soap is an easy place to start. Your skin can tell the difference.
💙 Reason 6 : Provides rich lather
People absolutely love bubbly lather. Although we have come to associate the cleansing properties of our soap with the amount of lather it produces, this is a misconception. Soap does not need to create a lot of lather to do its job.
A properly formulated and cured bar of natural soap needs no synthetic additives to create a lather or to clean because natural soap is a natural surfactant. So it not only makes great bubbles and lather, but it also helps clean oily dirt from your skin - naturally!
Nature’s ingredients like coconut oil, castor oil as well as the retained natural glycerin also help create a rich silky lather. The creamy silky lather from a natural soap is much richer.
💙 Reason 7 : Economical
Many may be put off by the cost of handmade soap. You probably look at a bar of natural soap and wonder why it costs more. I mean, soap is soap, right? Both bars clean your skin, right?
Simply put, commercial soaps contain synthetic ingredients that are very cheap to produce in a lab. Commercial soap companies do not want extra oils or glycerin in their soaps because they decrease shelf-life. Without these extra oils to moisturize your skin, you must reach for that bottle of lotion!
Natural handmade soaps may come with a higher price tag, but they provide a host of benefits when it comes to your skin. Natural soaps are made with higher quality ingredients:
-Starting with natural and organic oils and butters
-The scents added to natural soaps are pure plant essential oils
-Natural soap colors come from natural juices, teas, spices, botanicals, or clay
Have a look at the labels on your favorite bar soaps in order to learn what you are actually paying for as well as what you are putting on your skin.
