Don’t Compromise!

Compromise is what we do when we do something out of character for approval a group. In society we have been taught that we must compromise in order for to get through some things. Yes, compromise is necessary when it comes to conversation and relationships (platonic and romantic). But compromise is not necessary when we compromise ourselves and act in a manner that put other people in a poor position. One of our main slogans at Soulside Skincare is “Don’t Compromise”. That is not only for our customer but for us as well

When we say “Don’t Compromise” we are telling you guys, our family, not to shop with companies that have unethical behavior. To not settle for products that are lower value because they are “convenient”. It is for you to not compromise and buy from a brand that may not be cruelty free or natural. It also means for you to buy for a company that genuinely cares about them and does not just see you as a piggy bank they can exploit. We pride ourselves on being a company that cares about our customers because there are not many of us left. We understand that there is no Soulside Skincare family without you guys and we are genuinely grateful.

“Don’t Compromise” means something different to us. We use it as a way to remind us of our values. It is for us to not compromise ourselves as people and to become just another company that doesn’t give a damn about their customers. They are just milking them. We want to be human first, business second. We have all heard the saying “its business not personal.” But we disagree with that statement wholeheartedly. How could it not be personal if we are all humans first. We will always make our decision for humans first. We want to provide a safe space for you guys. Being online we face challenges but hopefully provide you with an intimate and personal experience to the best of our capability. With that said if you do not know them already our values are humanity, quality, self-love, environmentally conscious, and fight against hate. It is important that you know them as well so that you can hold us accountable if we are falling behind or lacking in an area. We want to be held accountable if we are not keeping our promise not only by ourselves but by our family. It wouldn’t be much of a family if we did not give up that power.

If you would like to know more about what our values entail, please check out our values page or feel free to direct message us on Instagram, message our chat box, or email us as we are always available for a chat. As always stay blessed.

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.
