Soap is a very vital aspect when it comes to nourishing our skin and the health of our hands, so it is very important to treat them with high-quality ingredients that benefit them. We have access to all different kinds of soaps within the market, and due to top-notch corporations being a dominant field in our shopping, we tend to succumb to the products they provide. We don’t often realize that most of the soaps they sell to us are actually bad for our skin! Instead, you should focus on handcrafted soaps and leave behind the brand-name soaps you have in your bathroom; switch to healthier, cleaner alternatives for your hands and skin!
Let’s start with what big-name companies use in their soaps. For example, Softsoap is a cheap-on-the-wallet, popular brand you can find in places like Target and Walmart. When looking around for the back panel, let’s see what they list for their ingredients, shall we?
“Aqua/Water, Sodium C12-13 Pareth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Cocamide MEA, Fragrance, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Sulfate, Polyquaternium-7, PEG-18 Glyceryl Oleate/Cocoate, Poloxamer 124, Blue 1, Red 33.”
Yikes! That’s a lot of ingredients just for soap. Most of those are hard to pronounce, too, what’s with that? We need soaps that’ll benefit our hands, not confuse our brains with the hard-to-read ingredients. Most of those aren’t natural for the body, either. In fact, today’s store-bought soaps are made with synthetic ingredients, which leaves your skin stripped of all the nutrients needed to be its best and do its best for you.
Meanwhile, handcrafted soaps are made with you in mind, with skin-loving ingredients that can also help to fight eczema, psoriasis, and overall dry skin. The nutrients that the body needs are not lost in the making of handcrafted soaps, and we try to keep all our ingredients as natural and organic as possible. Therefore, the soap is rich in vitamins, proteins, and minerals that’ll make your skin thank you!Check Out Our Soaps
