Stop Drying Your Skin Out with the Store-bought Soaps Loaded with Chemicals that Age and Irritate
BENEFIT #1: Handmade soap is made with natural ingredients.
More attention is paid to the ingredients we use on our bodies than every before in modern history. We reject those ingredients which we believe are not health-wise. There is a great interest in using natural
ingredients whenever possible in our daily lives. We want to know what it is and where it actually comes from. It comes as no surprise that we would have that same concern for the products we use on our skin.
Soap should clean your skin but not leave it dry, irritated or itchy. Handmade soap is mild and cleanses your skin gently and softly. It has a clean scent and leaves your skin smooth with no residue.
Various oils are used, some common and some exotic, in the making of natural soaps which can include olive oil, palm oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, apricot kernel oil, almond oil, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil and coconut oil. Each oil has a slightly different property to it and different skin benefits. Some are better for dry skin or for people with eczema. Many people enjoy cocoa butter in their soaps for its soothing, moisturizing properties.
BENEFIT #2: Handmade soap is chemical-free.
Some of the chemicals put in mass-produced soap are very drying and irritating to many people. The natural glycerin is stripped out of mass produced soap. Glycerin is a natural humectant and provides lubrication and smoothness. People with sensitive skin and certain allergies are often advised to purchase "Dove Soap" by their physicians because it is one of the few mass produced soaps that is "less" drying than others.
Each handmade soap has different ingredients and you can check the ingredients of each and choose the soap which is the best for your particular skin type or ailments. There are soaps for dry skin, normal skin, oily skin and combination skin.
BENEFITS #3: Handmade soap comes in many, many scents.
