It should come as no surprise that much like other store bought skin care products which are filled with chemicals, soaps are no exception. Organic soaps are a much better alternative to a potentially completely "fake" option.
Have you ever noticed that "soaps" on the body soap aisle in the store are almost never labeled as "soap?" This is because legally, they can not call the product soap. These "soaps" are actually more like detergents. They may be labeled as cleansers, body bars, or body wash. During the soap-making process, commercial soap companies replace natural ingredients with chemical based lathering and cleansing agents. The process these companies use is far from natural. These detergents disguised as soaps are good for one thing and one thing only: removing oils. That's what you want out of a dish soap or laundry detergent, but not what you want on your skin. These commercial soaps will strip your skin of its natural moisture.
Ingredients included in commercial soaps to watch out for:
- Synthetic Perfumes & Scents
- Artificial Coloring
- Chemical Preservatives
These ingredients will never be found in organic soaps or all natural products. Organic soaps will have essential oils to add skin benefits as well as a natural scent. Synthetic perfumes and scents can cause hormone issues as well as allergic reactions. Chemical preservatives are skin irritants, and should never be put onto your skin. Organic soaps will help to preserve your skin's natural glow while cleansing and detoxifying. Commercial soaps may speed up the aging process by introducing chemicals and preservatives.
