Handmade soap is made with natural, wholesome ingredients that cleanse without stripping skin of its natural oils.
Commercially-made bars are made with chemical additives, or synthetic detergents. Additives and detergents dry out the skin, create rashes and other irritations.
Handcrafted soap contains glycerin to moisturize skin.
Glycerin is a humectant; it attracts moisture and softens your skin. Glycerin is not merely added to handcrafted soap. Rather, it is naturally created in the process of mixing water, oils, and butters. In handcrafted soap, the glycerin is left in place. In commercially-made bars, however, glycerin is thought to be valuable, and so it is extracted for use in other more profitable, moisturizing products. The absence of glycerin is another reason that commercial bars dry out the skin.
Many so-called soaps on supermarket shelves share more in common with washing powder than actual soap.
According to the FDA- “Today there are very few true soaps on the market. Most body cleansers, both liquid and solid, are actually synthetic detergent products.’
Natural soap won’t dry out your skin or cause any other skin irritation as all of the ingredients are gentle and skin safe.
Natural soap doesn’t contain any synthetic ingredients, which can be absorbed by the skin (the body’s largest organ) and sometimes get into the bloodstream causing problems.
In our handmade soap, all of the glycerin is retained in the bar, and combined with olive, coconut, kukui and sweet almond oil, moisturizes and nourishes your skin.
