Soap-making was in the picture as early as 2800 B.C. They were made by cooking fatty acids together with water and an alkaline, a caustic substance derived from wood ashes. It was used to wash away dirt and later to maintain the health of the skin. Due to its natural ingredients, soap was biodegradable and environmentally friendly. With evolution and commercialization, this soap-making process changed. As you amble through the shelves of the supermarket or any store, you will see an assortment of soap bars, shower gels, cleansers, deodorant soaps, and even beauty bars. Not everything is natural and, in fact, doesn’t even fit into the definition of soap as they are nothing more than detergents in disguise.

At the time of origin, all soaps were handmade and the traditional method of natural soap making is still the cold press method. As the name implies, the elements are not heated, allowing them to conserve their beneficial and natural properties. This process retains the hydrolipidic film on the skin after having been washed, which gives it extra hydration and protection. Most of the soap that we purchase these days is a commercially manufactured mélange of chemical ingredients that are harmful to both our bodies and the environment. Here are some reasons why you need to switch to natural soaps over commercial soaps and what difference you can make to yourself and the world.

The very first and undeniable fact is that natural soap is what really soap is. And as we are all aware, nature has always been our teacher and has provided us with everything we need for a healthy and happy life. The most significant reason to use natural soap is the ingredients that go into it, as any product is only as good as the ingredients used to make it. Unlike commercial soaps made of synthetic detergents and fragrances, which offer zero benefits and harm to the skin, natural soaps are made of nutrient-rich, skin-nourishing, organic ingredients.

Natural soap slows down aging and does not cause dry skin or skin irritation, as often experienced with synthetic ingredients. The glycerin in the saponification (soap-making) process is not removed in natural soaps like in commercial ones and is highly moisturizing, keeping one away from skin conditions like redness, eczema, etc. Adding to it is the use of essential oils that have benefits beyond just scent. These help in reaping the benefits of aromatherapy by easing stress and rejuvenating the body, mind, and soul.

The result of our meticulous soap-making process is a mild, rich, moisturizing soap that feels creamy and offers clear, soft, healthy, and radiant skin. If you’re still unsure about switching to natural soap, just try it; your skin will thank you!
