Although soap is probably used by everybody, it is very much underestimated for the benefits it can provide for good skincare. The mass produced soap, regardless of what they may advertise to provide, are rarely more than just nice smelling cleansers but natural soap is different. What is often referred to as natural soap is a soap which has been handmade with natural, organic ingredients and some of these soap, depending on those ingredients, can provide some of the best skincare possible.
Although it is what is put into the soap that determines how good a skincare product it is, how it is put in is also important. For instance, Shea Butter is very good for skincare but only if it has not gone through the processing system that mass producers of soap use, to be beneficial it must be used in soap in its natural, unprocessed state.
Although the skincare benefits of Shea Butter after processing are negligible, unprocessed it contains the following skincare benefits:
1.It is a natural moisturizer and so moisturizes, conditions and balances your skin
2.As it is full of Vitamins A & E and fatty acids, it helps the skin retain its elasticity, making it appear younger and not age
3.It helps in the healing process of skin, diminishing the time it takes wounds and scars to heal and also helps treat burns and bites
4.If used regularly by a woman that is pregnant, she can reduce the chances of stretch marks
5.It makes skin smooth and soft, lessening the chances of lumps from cellulite
6.As it is safe for use on babies, it can be used on diaper changes as it helps fight yeast which is the cause of rashes
7.As well as its beneficial properties for skin, as it is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, when used in the hair and scalp can help protect against dandruff
This is just one of the many natural, organic ingredients that can be used in handmade soap in order to provide good skincare but it is also one of the many ingredients that will lose its beneficial properties if subjected to any mass production processes.
Skin is the largest organ that the body has and so if we want to think about general well-being, we must consider good skincare as one of the priorities. Many people already do and that is why there are so many different skincare products on the market today but many of those products actually work as advertised. It isn’t that the soap does not contain what it is claimed to contain, it is just that many of the beneficial ingredients have lost their potency in the processes.
Other beneficial ingredients in handmade soap are:
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Organic Olive Oil
- Organic Avocado Oil
- Organic Castor Oil
- Organic Cocoa Butter
- Organic Mango Butter
- Organic Argan Oil
And Organic JoJoba Oil which many refer to as the superfood for skin due to its many benefits.
