Why I Choose All Natural Bath Soaps

I first tried natural bath soap a few years ago, when my wife introduced them to me. I always had used store bought soaps, without thinking about it. They always left my skin feeling dry, and flaky at times, but I didn’t know better. Most were the cheap soaps, bought at the local grocery store, that do not have much of a scent, or even are unscented. It got me clean, but what I didn’t realize was the chemicals I was putting on my skin, damaging my skin. These soaps were clogging my pores, taking away moisture, causing my skin to be dry and irritated. My wife had a friend who gave us a sample of her natural soap. I had never felt a better soap that worked so well on my skin.

Natural soap bars are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. They do not contain chemical additives like commercial soap bars which may include animal fats, alcohols, esthers (known carcinogenic), low grade oils, wax and fillers.

One of the many benefits of using a natural soap bar is that since they do not contain animal fats they cut down on the soap scum you will find in your shower and bath if you are using commercial soaps. Natural soap doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils which means your skin is left feeling softer and smoother compared to dry and itchy when using commercial bars of soap.

These natural soap bars are made with coconut, palm, sunflower, rice bran, castor and soya bean oils. They are hand crafted using the cold process method in which the ingredients are mixed at a low temperature. This process retains all of the natural goodness of the base oils and essential oils. In the saponifiaction process, large quantities of glycerin are produced. Glycerin prevents skin dryness and irritation and has incredible moisturizing properties. Commercial soap usually has the glycerin removed to make a harder bar and longer lasting soap. You can feel the difference in hand crafted homemade soap by rubbing the dry bar and feel the oils and the soft texture of the natural soaps.

Hand crafted natural soap has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. With natural hand crafted homemade soap comes exciting fragrances as the wonderful people who make this soap have the imagination commercial companies lack when it comes to making beautifully scented soap bars with new and exciting scents.
