Why Natural Soap Is Better Than Commercial Soap
Soap is soap, right? Well, yes and no. Yes, soap is a surfactant that helps clean your skin by removing dirt and oil from it. But no, not all soaps are created equal. That's why I prefer natural soap to commercial—because it's better for my body and even better for the earth!
Soap is soap is soap, right?
You might be thinking, "Soap is soap is soap. Right?" Well, not exactly. You see, there are two kinds of soap: natural and commercial. Natural soaps are made from natural ingredients like animal fat and vegetable oil; commercial soaps contain chemicals and synthetic ingredients that can irritate your skin over time.
Natural soap is made from simple ingredients.
Natural soap is made from simple ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil and essential oils. Commercial soaps are often made with chemicals, preservatives and artificial fragrances. Natural soap is good for your skin because it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals that can irritate your skin or cause allergic reactions.
Commercial soap can be bad for your skin
For many years, the commercial soap industry has been using synthetic ingredients to make their products. In recent years, natural soap companies have started popping up and gaining popularity because of this. But what is the difference between commercial and natural soaps? What do they use in natural soaps that make them better?
Natural soap is good for the earth.
Natural soap is better for the environment because it doesn't contain any of those pesky artificial ingredients that pollute our air and water with their toxic byproducts.
Natural soap is better for the earth because it's made from ingredients that grow naturally on this planet, like coconut oil or olive oil--you know, actual plants! (You can even use some leftover scraps of food to make your own homemade soaps.)
Natural soap is better for animals too: no animal testing was involved in making this soap! And if you're into veganism or vegetarianism (or just don't want to eat animal products), then this could be a great choice for you too...
Natural soap is better for your skin.
You know how sometimes you get a rash, or your skin gets dry and flaky? That's because commercial soaps are full of chemicals that strip away all the good stuff from your body and leave it feeling defenseless against germs and bacteria (which is why some people use antibacterial hand sanitizers). Natural soaps use raw ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, and other natural products to nourish your skin instead of stripping it bare. Natural soaps are also better for the environment: they don't contain harsh chemicals that pollute our water supply--and they're biodegradable!
Natural Soap Is Better For Your Wallet Too!
While most commercial brands cost around $10-$34 per bottle or bar (depending on size), our handmade soaps are available at a fraction of those prices--some only $5 per bar! Why pay more when you can get an amazing product at an affordable price?
Soap is soap, right? Wrong! Natural soap is better for your skin and the earth.
