Benefits of Natural Soap

Benefits Of Using Natural Soap

Getting cleaned up is often the process of using soap and water combined with friction to get yourself properly cleaned up. The problem is you may not know about the types of soaps on the market and this generally means you will use the first one you pick up off of the shelf at the store. By knowing about the benefits that surround natural soap, you will not mind paying a little bit extra to get a soap that is going to be gentler for your skin than what you first thought and know it will make your skin feel and look great.

The first thing that you will notice is the natural products tend to use more of the products that are going to be natural in nature. This way people are able to get the products and know they are not going to cause as much in the way of harm to their skin. So this will allow people to have the relief they want without having any of the chemicals on their skin that could harm them. So this will allow people to get clean and make sure they are properly cleaned up without chemicals.

The natural items tend to have a scent that is going to be quite a bit more normal. That is because the scents are not going to be very heavily on the chemicals, but this will make it easier for people to have the scents and know they are not going to be smelling like the chemicals that they do not want to have. However, this is something people are going to love because it allows them to have a floral scent, instead of a floral scent that was produced by the different chemicals that the company decided to put into the soaps to get the scent.

Finally people will notice the natural soaps are going to do just as good of a job of cleaning as the regular soaps. However, people will notice that because of these soaps using the natural products they are going to be easier for the soap to get the job done and know that the soap is going to do just as good of a job. The other thing is since these are using natural products the bacteria, viruses, and other products tend to have a harder time adjusting to them because the natural products do the same thing.

Being able to use soap to get clean can be a good thing. However, what everyone needs to realize is that their are plenty of benefits of using natural soap. By knowing about these benefits it will be quite a bit easier for people to get the soap they need to use and know that it is going to help them out, but also resist some of the harsh chemicals that are being put into the soaps on a regular basis. Without this, people may think the only soap that works are the normal non-natural soaps they use.

What is natural skincare?

Today’s marketplace is flooded with all types of skincare products, and the big rave is natural skincare.  But what is natural skincare?  According to Wikipedia, it is the “use of topical creams and lotions made of ingredients available in nature.

The problem is, this is way too vague.  Giving too much latitude for marketers.  Pick up any “natural” soap or lotion from the shelf at your local grocery store and read the label for yourself?  Do the ingredients sound natural to you?  If your like most people, you may glance at the ingredients, not understand it, and trust that it’s good for your because….well…it says “natural”.

The definition given for natural skincare allows companies to add a bunch of synthetic compounds together with just one natural ingredient…say…coconut oil.  And bam!  You now have a natural skincare product!

What to watch out for?

My rule is, if I don’t understand it, it’s suspicious.  Granted, I’ve been doing this a long time and found there are many natural ingredients that sound complex (synthetic).  Again, blame it on the marketers.  If you read “cocos nucifera” you may think, “that sounds exotic!” and place a higher value on it.  But, it’s just coconut oil.

Then there are other things that sound natural, but are anything but.  A common ingredient is “fragrance”.  That’s just a blanket term for a compound make to scent the product.  Marketers have found that consumers prefer “fragrance” in their personal products rather than “12-Oxahexadecanalide, and 1-methyl-2,3-methoxy-4-isopropybenzene”.  And an overwhelming majority of “fragrance oils” are petroleum based.  So, companies just put “fragrance” and hope their customers won’t investigate too closely.

So, watch out for everything!

What makes a good natural skincare product?

Knowing more about ingredients is a great start.  Looking for certifications, such as “certified organic skincare”, “non-gmo” and such.  The Natural Products Association has a great consumers page to help you get a better grasp on this.

How to know what skincare products are right for you?

Everybody is different.  And every body is different too.  Just because a product is natural, and organic, and all that good stuff, doesn’t mean it’s right for you.  Your skin is unique.  Your skincare products should be too.  Simple almond oil is such a wonderful skincare oil.  However, some people may be allergic to it.  Essential oils are fantastic natural ways to scent personal products, however, again, some people may be allergic to a specific ingredient.
