The skin is the body’s most important natural defense when it comes to a wide variety of harmful agents, substances and external influences. With a glorious list of natural ingredients, essential oils and nourishing extracts, natural handmade soaps deliver a rich dose of antioxidants to ensure that the skin is well-protected and balanced.
BENEFITS OF SOAP BARS
The very best reason to use handmade soap is the ingredients. Typically handmade soap is made of vegetable oils and butters such as olive, coconut, shea, and cocoa all rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are essential to healthy skin.
In addition to being synthetic free, homemade soaps are considered to be the best natural skin care product because they naturally retain the glycerin formed during the soap making process resulting in a naturally moisturizing soap. Glycerin is a precious emollient that softens and maintains water balance by attracting moisture to the skin.
Other ingredients can include herbs and essential oils, both added for their soothing and aroma therapeutic properties as well as gentle exfoliation of the skin. You can also add Vitamin E and aloe vera for sensitive skin, tea tree and rosemary for oily and acne-prone skin, bentonite clay to naturally detoxify the body, and even milk and coffee grounds to gently smooth rough spots. The creative artistry of each bar results in soap that is not only natural but functional and beautiful.
