Why use a natural soap?
It’s a good question. Ever wonder why commercially sold soap has things such as “Beauty Bar”, “moisturizing bar” or even “body bar” on their label? Because they are more of a detergent and less of an actual “soap”. And even if they do label their product as soap chances are they are laden with harmful chemicals.
These beauty bars add lathering agents, artificial colors, artificial fragrances and other harsh chemicals to their product. The skin is the largest organ in (or on) our body, is very porous and will absorb these chemicals readily. Organic soap limits your exposure to these chemicals and can save your skin from irritations and reactions from these unnecessary agents.
Not to mention that these detergents are very DRYING to the skin. Glycerin is a natural skin softener that attracts moisture. During the soap making process, commercial companies process out the glycerin and sell it or use it in their lotions and creams. It’s almost as if store bought brands want to you buy TWO products instead of one….nah, that can’t be it.
There’s been a firestorm regarding antibacterial soap for a while now. Please read the FDA press release posted Sept. 2, 2016 that discusses the FDA’s ban on marketing soap as antibacterial because there is no evidence that they are more effective than soap and water. Actually, it may be worse! This final rule applies to consumer antiseptic wash products containing one or more of 19 specific active ingredients, including the most commonly used ingredients – triclosan and triclocarban. Google triclosan and you’ll see why.
Young Living soaps only contain the finest ingredients and contain NO synthetic ingredients. No artificial colors, no artificial fragrances, no triclosan, no parabens, no pfthalates- nothing. And the ingredients are organically grown in accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990. The scents are provided by 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils and therefore may be less irritating to your nasal passageways.
