Have you switched to using natural soaps yet?
Well, between commercial and natural, both are soaps but also quite different in comparison. Even commercial soaps that are self-proclaimed "beauty bars" are still made with many unknown and harsh chemicals.
Oils/ Butter + NaOH = Soap + natural glycerin + water.
The soap making process is simple, just how it is above.
We personally hand make soaps from scratch using the traditional cold-process method. We keep everything simple. We keep the natural glycerin in the soap, which is why we do not need to add extra glycerin - unlike other soap companies. We also use natural plant oils and butter to make soap, then cure them on the rack for 6-8 weeks to let the water evaporate.
Commercial soap factories might use the readymade soap noodles/powder from other countries, palm oil from environmentally threatening plantations and may also remove the natural glycerin to make other cosmetic products. They add more synthetic fragrances, artificial colours and preservatives to prolong the life and fake beauty of the soap.
We share with you the comparison between our soap and commercial soap. Hope you can make the switch to using natural soap for a gentler cleanse, better moisturise, sweeter soothe, natural heal and protection your skin - and kinder treatment of our planet.
