Soaps can sometimes have harsh effects on our bodies, especially when our skin can be naturally sensitive especially with cases of allergies. Commercial soap bars, the type most of us are used to, are now known to have more negative effects on the skin than advertisers claim.

Because of the many chemical processes that commercial soaps often undergo, they can cause a lot of damage and irritation to our skin.

Natural Soaps

Although not many people use natural soaps, there is however, a significant increase in awareness of the benefits of natural soaps. These soaps contain organic ingredients and natural soothing oils that can transform the entire texture and glow of the skin.

There are many different natural soaps now available and they can be made with a number of very rich ingredients like palm, coconut, rice bran, castor, soya bean, and exotic oils; all of which have natural beneficial effects on the skin. One other clear advantage of natural soaps is the fact that they can be used on any type of skin, irrespective of allergies and reactions. This is because allergies and reactions are mostly caused by active chemical substances that really are unsuitable for the skin or body.

Natural soaps have also been shown to prevent premature aging of the skin. They also help to protect the skin against over-exposure to the sun and other harsh natural conditions.

Lastly natural soaps help to protect our waterways and our environment as they do not contain the pollutants found in many commercial soaps.

Organic skincare products and cosmetics choosing tips

Most of you may already be aware of the fact that Food has their Government Certified Labelling Program, but did you know that no such program were held for organic ingredients in skin and beauty products? Well you can still tell whether you’re choosing organic cosmetics and skin care products or not by the following:

1. Check the Labels out, not just the name of the product. Most of the products may have “Organic” on their Names, but you won’t find that term on their Ingredients.

2. While Checking the Ingredients, try noticing if they have ingredients such as petroleum, synthetic preservatives or artificial colors.

3. Next, find out exactly what are the natural ingredients in those products and get more information about their usage and application. For example, some natural soaps like goats milk soap have all the proper ingredients generally in appropriate proportion to maintain their ‘organic’ nature.

This is a really interesting topic but it would be better suited to the beauty section of the forum.
