Have you ever taken the time to read the list of ingredients on a bar of soap that has been mass produced? Chances are you will find some of the following ingredients…
- Sodium Isethionate – a synthetic detergent added to commercial soaps to give them anti-static and lathering properties.
- Sodium cocoyl isethionate – another synthetic detergent that reduces surface tension.
- Tetrasodium EDTA - synthetic preservative – known to be irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes.
- Sodium Tallowate - made from animal fat (tallow) Besides being an animal product, tallow has been known to clog pores and aggravate eczema for those individuals with sensitive skin.
Synthetic detergents and preservatives can irritate and dry out your skin. These synthetic ingredients can draw the moisture out of your skin. Why would you want them in your soaps?
We feel that soap should pamper, moisturize and clean your skin with natural ingredients.
Handmade soaps do not contain any harsh chemicals. They are loaded with glycerin to pamper your skin. Often this glycerin is chemically removed from commercial soaps.
Once you try handmade soap you will never want to go back to a commercial bar again. The difference is truly that noticeable
