It has been common knowledge for a long time now that modern cosmetics are just concoctions of chemicals. They do little towards improving the skin and more towards damaging it. The widespread availability and trend of moving away from the old ways have made many of us accustomed to the use of products that are not healthy. Our handmade soaps are different!
Traditionally homemade soaps are still available, but with few people realizing their importance, they are rare. The conventional method of soap making is known as cold processing. Handmade soap combines ingredients that exist naturally to provide your skin with the moisture and nutrients that it deserves. Here, we discuss some of the benefits of handmade soaps that most people may not know about.
1. Handmade Soaps Are the Best Moisturizers
It is a common misconception for most people that handmade soaps will dry the skin out. However, the opposite is true. Since handmade soaps are made from natural ingredients, they deliver better ingredients and moisture to the skin. They are made with an abundance of plant oils and butter. This process is known as ‘superfatting’ as it enriches the soap to make it better at cleansing the skin. Handmade soaps also retain their natural glycerin making them more effective at delivering moisture to the skin just as nature intended.
2. They Use a Breadth of Natural Ingredients
In the olden days, ingredients like honey, milk, and eggs were used to treat the skin and hair. Modern cosmetics use ‘extracts’ from these products today to make us believe something false. Natural handmade soaps are an exception. Every component that goes into their manufacture is pure. There are extracts, and when buying from a reliable brand, everything within the soap is USDA Certified Organic.
One of the main moisturizing agents in handmade soap is glycerin. This agent draws moisture from the air and embeds it into the skin giving it the glow that matters. Glycerin is removed from commercial soaps because with this ingredient shelf life of the product decreases. However, with it removed, the soap dries out the skin.
3. Their Organic Scents Are Mesmerizing
Where commercial soaps use artificial fragrances, handmade soaps are infused with essential soaps. There is no denying the fact that the scents of most synthetic soaps are amazing, too, but that is created using artificial ingredients. The beauty of nature is that it remains in sync with our bodies and is healthy on many levels.
One of the benefits of natural ingredients and essential oils is that they provide aromatherapy. You can easily feel the difference as you step in for a bath and just hold the soap close to your nose. The smell is mesmerizing and soothes your senses. Natural elements emit an aroma that is pleasurable to human instincts and offers amazing benefits.
4. If It’s Foam You Want; Natural Soaps Offer that Too
Commercial soaps have a synthetic foam booster in them to create that rich lather feeling. Handmade soaps can do the same, but they don’t rely on artificial ingredients. Moreover, it is known that soaps don’t need all that lather to perform their job effectively. Although people love those extensive bubbles that soaps create, perhaps because they make for a luxurious, pampered feeling, lather holds no functional value. Handmade soaps also create a silky-smooth feeling only they use natural ingredients like coconut and castor oil.
