Did you know? Do you care?
Most soaps available in the store today are not really soaps at all, but detergents. Detergents are a petroleum based product, like gasoline and kerosene. Detergents tend to leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and tight. Certain ingredients in mass-marketed soap have been proven harmful to human health and can cause severe skin irritations in some people. Do your own research. Visit Environmental Working Group and find out how the products you use are rated. Take inventory of the things you use and see if there are better choices you can make. Even if only one thing at a time.
Handmade soaps offer so many options. There are different oils to use for different sensitivities. Additives can help with things like dry itchy skin, skin soother & acne to name a few. Don't forget the many aromatherapy benefits too. Lavender is calming while mint is exhilarating.
