Bar Soap: Benefits and Myths

Benefits:

Good for the Environment

Unlike liquid body washes that use excess amounts of plastic for their packaging, bar soaps eliminate the need for excess environmental waste products. As a company making an effort to provide sustainable options, our bar soap packaging is made from recycled materials as a way to make sure that we are cutting down on as much waste as possible.

 

Healthier on skin

Our body bars are made out of organic ingredients and essential oils that eliminate the harsh effects of non-natural body washes. While a lot of store brand body washes consist mostly of water and often times harsh chemicals our bars provide natural cleaning agents with powerful moisturizing properties that improve overall skin health and maintenance.

 

Reduced body odor

Essential oils are not only great for cleaning and moisturizing the skin but for body odor as well. Essential oils are naturally potent anti-odor agents due to their ability to stay on skin for an extended period of time. Essential oils such as lavender can even be found in perfumes for its longevity. As a result, our bar soaps provide a natural allure that last throughout the day to make sure you are clean and smell the best you possibly can.

 

No Artificial Preservatives

Artificial preservatives have had a long reputation for contributing to signs of unhealthy skin. Both the natural and essential oils in our bar soaps provided a lengthy shelf life and does not lose its effective cleaning traits.

 

Myths:

Bar soaps cannot be used on the face

Contrary to popular belief you can absolutely use bar soaps on skin. Often times traditional bar soaps were seen as being to harsh on the face but its more due to its unnatural ingredients. With that being said however we do recommend using a separate bar of soap exclusively on your face.

 

Bar soaps are unsanitary

Arguably one of the biggest misconceptions is that bar soaps are not sanitary. While there are small amounts of bacteria on bar soaps there are also traces of bacteria on your skin. The natural antimicrobial benefits of our soap keep bacteria to a minimum both on the surface of the bar and your skin itself. Rinse your bar for a few seconds before lathering and store the bar in a dry place until the next use.

 

Natural soaps do not clean

Natural antimicrobial ingredients are among the strongest cleaning agents in mother nature. They have the ability to deeply clean and sanitize the body and accommodate all skin types. Those with sensitive skin who are a bit more prone to skin irritation may find that natural soap is the way to go.
