Its all about natural and handmade!

Its all about natural and handmade!

Handmade soap is the soap in its true and pure form. It gently cleanses away  excess oils and bacteria but does not strip your skin of its natural oils as commercial soap. Natural handmade soap is locally produced with fresh and natural ingredients. The name says it all, of course - "Handmade" soap which is done by hands, not involving factories and machines. Real handmade soap contains raw ingredient that include fat, and/ or oil , liquid and lye. They are usually made in small batches using traditional methods and plant-based ingredients. Since they are done in small badges, they are generally fresh and can be customized using preferred ingredients. 

 

Most importantly, handmade soaps have the most valuable ingredient, glycerin. As said previously, mass-produced soap detergents, has all their glycerin robbed right after saponification process. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture from the air to the skin. Its produced naturally during the soapmaking process. Its one of the things that make handmade soap so amazing! Some commercial soaps remove the glycerin from the bars and sell it to make lotions and creams. Without glycerin, soap isn’t nearly as skin loving, and can leave the skin feeling dry.

There are several reasons that makes a handmade soap is much better than commercial soaps.

  1. Handmade soap retains natural oils.

All those harsh processes that commercial soap through hardly leaves any of the original's oil goodness and benefit. With handmade soaps, the oils' use is maintained to product, with minimal loss of originality and goodness.  

  1. Better moisturization 

As mentioned previously, handmade soaps retain all their glycerin. This improves the soap's moisturizing properties and helps to restore the skin's PH levels. 

  1. Made with natural ingredients

Unlike the unpronounceable ingredients or chemicals added into commercial soap, handmade soaps are made with fresh and natural ingredients. Handmade soaps usually have a shorter list of ingredients, so the user can fully know what exactly is added to the soap.

  1. Added with essential oil or natural fragrances 

Handmade soaps commonly use natural or organic essential oils, which give it all the scents. Moreover, the minimal process of soap-making retails all its aroma and fragrances. 

  1. Serves multiple purposes

Everyone has heard how a single ingredient such as coconut oil, olive oil, or even aloe vera serves multiple benefits for skin, hair, and health. This is why handmade soaps serve multiple purposes such as moisturizing oil control, conditioning, control body odor, reduces skin problems, and many more. It comprises less than 10 ingredients altogether. 

  1. High quality

Handmade soaps aren't mass-produced, which means a lot of care and attention goes into making each soap. The use of the ingredients ensures that the soaps have a quality superior to that of commercial soaps.

  1. The PH factor 

The PH factor of natural soaps should measure somewhere between 9-10 on the scale. Human skin is naturally acidic to destroy any bacteria/fungi that come in contact with it. The act of cleansing dries the skin, and for this reason, you'll need a soap with a higher Ph level than your skin. Healthy skin will do its part and re-balance with the help of a high PH soap and without using harmful ingredients. 

Differences between Commercial Soap and Handmade soap

 

How commercial soap fooled us!

How commercial soap fooled us!
Commercial soap is the mass-produced soaps by large multinational companies. It is a factory or machine made by large batches with harsh chemicals, synthetic ingredients, cheap fragrance oils, and arti_cial colors, all of which can irritate and dry out your skin. Today, there are very few true/pure soaps on the market. Most body cleansers, soap, shower gels, either liquid and solid, are synthetic detergent products. If you take a closer look at commercials soaps sold in stores, likely you won't _and the term "soap" on the packages. Companies cannot use the word soap unless it is truly a REAL handcrafted bar of soap. On the other hand, they are labeled as "beauty bars," "dry skin cleaners," and "moisturizing bars."

The ingredients in some commercials bars on the market make them ineligible to be called and advertised as soap. The word "soap" has a legal de­nition provided by FDA. Most commercials brands are not called soap because they are actually "detergents" by ingredients and do not meet the legal de­nition of soap.

It is also essential to be educated about harmful ingredients before purchasing soap products. You want to refresh and moisturize your skin, not to pollute it with chemicals. Don't you? If you can't pronounce the words back of the soap labels- put the product down!

Here is a shortlist of common harmful ingredients of commercials soaps;

  1. PARABENS - It is a type of chemical preservatives and is considered a harmful ingredient. Found in the majority of cosmetics and beauty products.
  1. PHTHALATES - known to cause cancer. It is a substance used to manufacture plastics. Commonly used to create fragrances and added to cosmetics to extend shelf life. 
  1. SYNTHETIC PERFUME - Artificial perfume scents smell nice, yet they are linked to allergies and hormone issues. They are likely to cause skin conditions and aggravate existing problems such as acne.
  1. SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE (SLS) - SLS is a surfactant or detergent found in many personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, etc. It is used as a foaming agent for its cleaning and emulsifying properties. They behave similarly to soap. Like other detergents, SLS is an irritant that can cause skin irritation and dry skin.
  1. TRICLOSAN - Can you believe this ingredient is a pesticide? Yes, its antibacterial and antifungal properties make it an attractive option for soap companies, but not for your health. Triclosan can irritate the skin, eyes, and lungs and can also disrupt your hormones.

Every big company and skincare manufacturers have their deep secrets on the ingredients used for its products.

For example, the FDA doesn't require disclosing the ingredients contained in a company's trademark "fragrance "on its label. That means whichever ingredient added to the soap under the category of "Fragrance" does not need to be disclosed. Thus, the scented soap could contain harmful chemicals without the buyer knowing. Some of these chemicals concoctions are skin irritants and carcinogenic.

Glycerin is a naturally occurring component that attracts water to the skin, which effectively balances our skin's moisture level. Glycerin is also known to prevent signs of aging by helping skin cells to mature properly. When skin cells don't mature properly, they become hyper-proliferative, leading to skin conditions as hives, rashes, allergies, and atopic dermatitis. Studies show that the introduction of glycerin to your skincare regimen can provide a protective barrier and train your skin cells to cycle through their lifespan productively.

Typically factory-made soaps have all of the glycerin removed and placed into different additional products such as lotions and creams. Thus, their soaps lack glycerin. The reason is that instead of buying one product that will clean and moisturize, a consumer now has to buy two products to serve the same purpose. Sneaky! The main hack behind these synthetic, dry ingredients and removing glycerin is to save money from their bottom line and not offer us quality skincare! In place of glycerin, commercial companies often use synthetic chemicals that strip all of its oils' skin and act as skin irritants. These are why bar soaps are often categorized as detergents, washes, or cleansers rather than soap. With handcrafted soaps, glycerin remains in the soap. The result is mild, pure soap that gently cleanses your skin without being harsh, irritating, or drying.

Today, there is an increased awareness of the possible effects of many synthetic ingredients and additives in commercial soaps. Consumers have been educated regularly, and they are opting for natural products. Even large companies are starting to advertise "natural ingredients' in their products. Beware! The addition of one or two natural ingredients does not make the product "all-natural.
