4 Benefits of Natural Bar Soap Over Liquid Soap and Shower Gel

4 Benefits of Natural and Organic Soap Soap is one of the common products you will find in almost any household. We use it on a daily basis and buy it without a second thought. But have you ever considered there are different types of soap, and some of them are much better than others? If you are used to buying commercial soap, you should definitely learn about the benefits of natural soaps and reconsider you choices.


1. They Are Formulated with Safe and Effective Ingredients

More often than not, commercially made products labelled as “soaps” aren’t actually soaps; they are artificial surfactants that look like soap. Such products often contain SLS, SLES and other detergents that can irritate your skin, parabens, artificial dyes and fragrance, petroleum derivatives, and other chemicals. Natural soaps, however, are another cup of tea. They contain only natural and safe ingredients, such as vegetable oils and butters, essential oils, glycerine, herbal extracts, honey, milk, fruit juices, natural clay etc. These ingredients won’t strip your skin of moisture and natural protective oils; on the contrary, they’ll take good care of it.

2. Most of Them are Better for Animals and the Environment

Organic soaps aren’t just good for your skin and overall health, they’re also better for the environment. Of course, there are cheap natural soaps made with animal fat, but they aren’t what you need. Look for soaps that are labelled as “cruelty-free” and “vegan”. Such products are formulated with plant-based ingredients, many of which may be locally grown, and don’t contain animal fat or chemicals that may pollute the environment.

3. They Contain Natural Antiseptics

Commercial antibacterial soaps usually contain antibacterial agents such as triclosan (which is, by the way, prohibited in the United States by the FDA) that have been linked to potential health concerns stemming from endocrine disruption and antimicrobial resistance. In contrast, natural soaps are formulated with natural antiseptics that have antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and soothing properties but no side effects. They include tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, chamomile extract, lavender extract, and many more.

4. Some of Them Can Double as Gentle Scrubs

Exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine, but most scrubs are rather harsh for sensitive skin. Natural soaps with exfoliating ingredients (ground coffee, crushed grape seeds, fine salt, natural clays, loofah) are a great alternative to commercial scrubs. They polish the skin in a very gentle way, which makes them perfectly suitable even for very sensitive skin.
