Are you struggling to pronounce half of the ingredient list on your store-bought bar soap?
Are you concerned about the potential side effects — on both your health and the environment — of using inorganic ingredients?
If so, then you need to read this post.
In it, we’ll tell you just a few of the many benefits of slathering yourself in organic soap. Whether you’re using these soaps on your hands or your body, get ready to find out what an incredible difference they can make.
1. They’re Cruelty-Free
If you have a special four-legged friend in your life, then we know that you’re likely already committed to using products that don’t contain animal ingredients.
However, have you stopped to think about whether the products you’re using to keep yourself clean have been tested on animals?
The truth is that, even if the soap you’re using says it isn’t made with any animal products, it’s likely that it’s still been tested on them.
The good news about organic soap?
Usually, it’s cruelty-free — meaning that it hasn’t been tested on anyone other than human beings! You’ll feel better knowing that what you’re using hasn’t come at the cost of an animal’s happiness.
2. You’ll Keep The Earth Safe
Of course, it’s not only animals that you need to think about keeping safe when you’re in the market for some new soap.
It’s also the earth itself.
Luckily, when you purchase organic soap, you’re getting products that haven’t used any dangerous and harmful chemicals that can impact the overall quality of the air. Additionally, these soaps are free from pesticides, which can cause serious damage to our water supply.
Remember, even if you’re only able to make one small change, you’re still doing your part to make our world a greener and more beautiful place!
3. It’s Perfect For Sensitive Skin
We know that you’ve likely heard the age-old beauty rumor: bar soap is thought by many to seriously dry out your skin.
If you’re not using organic soap, this is likely true — but making the switch to a more natural option will make all the difference in the world.
Remember that many non-organic soaps contain sulfates, which are designed to remove impurities and dirt from the skin. Unfortunately, these sulfates end up removing a lot of other things as well. This includes the natural oils that your body produces in order to keep your skin moisturized.
This is likely why sometimes, after bathing with bar soap that’s not organic, your skin can sometimes feel dry or even itchy.
Instead of sulfates, organic soap contains only natural ingredients. Especially if you have more sensitive skin, your body will thank you for making the switch!
After you step out of the shower, slather your body in organic lotion to create an even more moisturized effect.
4. You’ll Eliminate More Toxins From Your Home
Whether you’re a parent or just taking care of yourself, we know that you want to do everything you can to keep toxins out of your home.
Unfortunately, especially in today’s world, that’s definitely easier said than done.
Toxins are lurking in your cleaning products, your foods, and yes, even your soaps.
When you make the switch to an organic option, you’re doing your part to eliminate those toxins from your home. Especially if you frequently deal with allergies or have any sort of immune system issues, this is incredibly important.
Organic soaps will keep you feeling just as good as they’ll have you looking. Most of all, they’ll do so without bringing any more harmful chemicals into your home. For even better results, we invite you to switch out all of your beauty products to an organic option.
Your skin will thank you!
5. You’re Familiar With The Ingredient List
There are few things more irritating than combing through a soap’s ingredient list, only to realize that you’ve never heard of half the things in it.
In fact, the truth is that “fragrance” is actually anything but what gives your soap it’s scent.
Instead, it’s usually a label used to hide the more unsavory and unhealthy ingredients that go into making your soap. But because “fragrance” is seen as a part of a company’s secret formula, it classifies as a trade secret.
This means that these companies can pretty much claim anything they want to as a fragrance. It also means you don’t really know what’s inside the soap you’re using — and what’s really getting absorbed into your skin.
Natural soaps take the mystery out of getting clean.
They contain ingredients you’re familiar with, like oatmeal, shea butter, and aloe vera.
