What is an 'Organic Soap'? Organic soap is made of organic or natural ingredients. Unlike regular soaps, which are mostly composed of synthetic chemicals. Organic soaps are made up of ingredients that are either found in nature or are derived from plants.
The regular soaps that are being sold in the market, such as beauty bars and anti-bacterial soaps have been found to contain harmful chemicals. On the other hand, organic products are made up of non-synthetic ingredients such as plant-derived base oils, essential oils, water, and natural dyes. There are plenty of advantages that come with using organic soaps, and these are the benefits you will enjoy if ever you decide to go the organic route!
REASONS TO USE A HANDMADE ORGANIC SOAP Organic Soap Helps in Maintaining Healthy Skin Organic soaps are much softer and smoother on the skin, very suitable for those who have sensitive or soft skin. Most people love using organic soaps that moisturize the skin and keep their hands soft. If you are someone who follows a skin care routine, you should ideally switch to organic soaps as they are gentler on skin.
Organic Soaps have natural anti-bacterial properties Anti-bacterial soaps sold in the market contain chemical ingredients that purportedly assist in killing bacteria. Organic products, on the other hand, possess natural anti-bacterial properties, and are also free from harmful chemical antibacterial toxins like triclosan, paraben or any other petrochemicals.
Organic Soaps are rich in Anti-Oxidants Antioxidants help the skin repair itself by reducing inflammation and keep your skin looking younger and fresh. The presence of more antioxidants in natural soaps rejuvenates the skin and helps in slowing down the aging process.
Organic Soaps are better for the Environment An Organic bar soap is better for the environment because it breaks down easily after it is washed down the drain.
Organic Soaps have Healing Properties Due to natural ingredients in organic soaps, such as essential oils, herbal extracts and spices, they tend to have healing properties. They act as cleansers and can also help improve skin conditions. Even the ingredient glycerin is good on sensitive skin and helps in healing and treating skin issues like acne and dermatitis.
Organic Soap is Free of Preservatives Antibacterial soaps have added preservatives that increase the shelf life of the soaps; however, they are harsh and may cause irritation on the skin. On the other hand, Organic soaps are mostly natural without any harmful added preservatives.
