Benefits of handmade natural soaps
● It dampens the skin
Handmade soap includes glycerine during the procedure of creation, which dampens the skin . Glycerine is an intrinsic skin buffering that absorbs water in the surrounding air.
Commercial soaps are manufactured having their glycerine removed, to be used in the production of other skin care products.
So, when it is said that those soaps result in dryness of the skin, it is nothing but the truth, because the glycerine that gives moisturizing effect to the skin has been removed. Also, glycerine is removed because it reduces shelf life.
Unlike naturally handmade soaps that effortlessly contain glycerine during the process of production.
When bathing, the natural oils are often removed. Getting a handmade natural soap would help to retain the skin’s natural moisture and prevent over-drying. It also has anti-ageing importance.
And that’s the goal!
● Antibacterial Properties
Mostly all antibacterial soaps contain chemical substances, which exposes people to have a higher percentage of having some cancers, e.g liver cancer.
Unlike organic soaps, which contain intrinsic antibacterial properties e.g essential oils, and help to fight harmful bacteria. It wouldn’t hurt to use them because they do nothing but improve our health. They also have great scents.
● Better constituents are used
When a large number of soaps are made by a company, it is evident that, part of the profit is from the volume production and part is from the low quality of products used and these are substitutes to the real things.
Handmade natural soaps are produced in sets and are produced with care. Intrinsic constituents like : shea butter, coconut oil, and olive oil are used, providing the skin with nourishments thereby enriching the skin.
● It does not pose any harm to waterways.
Constituents used in producing natural soaps are biodegradable i.e they are decomposable by microorganisms and do not pose any danger to aquatic animals if released into water bodies and other organisms.
Unlike artificial constituents used in the manufacture of commercial soaps e.g. phosphorus, they cause harm to fish when drained into water bodies and also affect other living organisms.
● Therapeutic in nature.
Handmade soaps have a healing effect i.e it makes one healthier. They help to relieve stress, boost the immune system, and promote health and well-being.
