Why Handmade Soap Are Better For Your Skin
Most of us are obsessed with always getting the healthiest produce from the store to eat, so why don’t we do it with soap? Handmade soap with natural ingredients has so many benefits for your skin and overall health that people don't even know about.
Using natural and handmade cosmetics minimizes the chances of skin irritation and inflammation since there are no herbicides and pesticides used in them. Processed soaps tend to have synthetic ingredients they can result in rashes and even eczema. Even if you don’t break out in a rash, the chemicals used to make the soap will most definitely dry out your skin, leaving it cracked and flaky. Natural oils and butters heal the skin, as well as providing vitamins and nutrients.
Non-organic soaps usually do not contain glycerin; a moisturizing agent, another reason it is better for skin care. Glycerin is also a humectant, which brings moisture to soften skin and since machine made soaps are processed to take out this ingredient, it ends up drying our skin. So in the end, it’s significantly more healthier for your skin than any other regular soap you can buy pretty much anywhere. Not to mention it usually lasts longer too since it's natural.
