Skin is your body’s largest organ—National Geographic estimates most adults have 8 pounds’ worth. Among its many purposes, skin protects you from the sun’s harmful effects, prevents infection, and assists in processing vitamin D. Because of this, it’s important that you protect your skin as well. The first step is by using a Natural Artisanal Handmade Soap to keep your skin clean.
The dangers of commercial soap
Not all soap is made equally. In fact, many of the commercial soaps found on drugstore shelves can be dangerous for your skin as well as your overall health. Because they are often marketed as being moisturizing and gentle on skin, many people have been left unaware of the harmful ingredients used in these products; ingredients like parabens and phthalates –both of which have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Additionally, the heavy presence of these chemicals sucks the moisture from your skin — that of which is especially dangerous since hydration is crucial for long-term skin health.
The benefits of handmade soap
With Natural Artisanal Handmade Soap, you can easily avoid chemical-heavy formulas. Unlike other soaps, artisanal soaps are packed with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Not only do they properly hydrate your skin, but they also play an important role in preventing and soothing common skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
An example of a natural soap that has been ethically and sustainably made is our Turmeric Soap Bar. The Turmeric Soap Bar has been crafted from a mix of essential oils and natural ingredients that cleanses the pores, removes toxins, and restores skin balance. So, not only will you feel guilt-free knowing your purchase has contributed to protecting the environment, but you’ll find comfort in knowing your largest organ –your skin– is receiving a natural defense against chemicals.
