It is no secret that many consumers are opting from commercial soap and switching to a more organic soap option. The real question is why? Why are people changing from their trusted commercial products to go more organic? What are their motives and concerns? Here’s what we discovered!
Most commercial soap is actually detergent.
The FDA has very strict regulations on the labeling of soap. Ultimately, there are very few true soaps on the market now, that’s why you see terms such as beauty bar, cleanser and body wash on labels.
Organic Soaps use Essential Oils
Unlike commercial soaps that use chemicals that are questionable at best, organic soaps use essential oils that have therapeutic benefits. Because the FDA doesn’t require companies to disclose their trademark fragrances, companies can use irritants, solvents and carcinogens without consumers even having to be told.
Thousands of unregulated chemicals go into these fragrances. Some of these toxins even can be absorbed through the skin. Some are even believed to cause illness.
One example is phylates, which used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl and found in commercial soap. Scary, huh?
Organic Soaps Don’t Use Chemical Pesticides
They also use fertilizers or herbicides that can cause allergic reactions, dry skin, skin
irritations or rashes. Organic soap as a whole is biodegradable and isn’t harmful to the environment. This eco-friendly beauty alternative is better for the skin, your health and Mother Nature. Sounds like a win-win!
Organic Soap Companies are Honest!
True organic soaps are from small businesses or individuals who will fully disclose their soap-making process and ingredients at any time. This allows you, as a consumer, to never have to wonder what you’re putting on your body.
Benefits of Organic Soap
There are many benefits to using organic soap. Here are just a few:
- Provides essential nutrients and vitamins to skin
- Hydrates and soothes dry skin
- Isn’t harmful to sensitive skin
Ultimately the bottom line is that commercial soap isn’t soap at all. It is full of harmful, unregulated and cancer-causing chemicals that cause skin problems. Organic soap is stress free and a simple solution to body care options for someone and their entire family.
The decision to switch doesn’t seem that difficult to us! What about you?
