Why use natural or organic body soap? First and foremost, your skin will note the difference…..just look at the ingredients list. Soaps come in a variety of shapes and sizes, scented or unscented, with or without dyes. Facial soaps, moisturising soaps, deodorising soaps, beauty bars, antimicrobial soaps, and a variety of other soaps are available. We all use soap on a regular basis, whether it’s in the shower or to wash our face. Have you ever considered what’s in your soap? It can come as a surprise to learn that not all soaps are produced equal. There are two forms of soap: commercially produced soap and natural soaps manufactured by hand.
Process: Commercial VS Handmade
Most of the time, the soap you choose from hundreds of options at the supermarket or pharmacy is commercially manufactured and not natural. They are branded as “soaps,” but closer examination reveals that they are nothing more than detergent in a pretty box. The synthetic ingredients are petroleum-based and warp as a result of chemical reactions in the manufacturing process.
Although a commercial soap can mention “natural oils” on the box, these are not the same pure oils used in the making of handmade natural soaps. They’re a by-product of the purification of raw vegetable oil, and they’re basically soap stock. The soap stock is isolated from the edible oil because it is a contaminant and therefore toxic. When it comes to glycerin, some of the largest soap manufacturers separate it from the soap and sell it to other companies or use it for a more profitable purpose.
There was a time when all soap was made by hand. The cold process was, and still is, the conventional method of making it. After the soap mixture has been prepared, it is poured into moulds to saponify for a day, then dried for another day before being cut into bars and left to cure for a month or more. This is how we make our natural body soap at Neera Naturals. It’s the purest form of soap.
Few stocks are made locally and with good care. There’s a reason why there aren’t any well-known natural soap manufacture companies. People who are passionate about making natural products see this as a token of love rather than a company. It’s a skill that takes years to learn. Handmade natural soap is made through a saponification process in which oils and fats are combined with sodium hydroxide and water (known as lye). The end result is a skin-friendly, safe, and pleasant product.
Why Should I Use Natural Soap?
- Since all of the ingredients are gentle and skin friendly, natural soap will not dry out your skin or cause any other skin irritation.
- Natural soap does not contain any synthetic ingredients that can be absorbed by the skin (the body’s largest organ) and cause issues in the bloodstream.
- Natural soap is often scented in a more subtle and refreshing manner.
When you use Neera Naturals bar soaps, you will not be disappointed. We most likely have the fragrance and type that will be a great fit for you! The uniqueness of handmade soap is that it can be made in almost any combination. One of the appeals of purchasing natural soap is the ability to create the fragrance.
