Buy Handmade Natural Soap in Newtown PA
Top reasons to buy handmade soap
Handmade soap is fun and there is no reason to justify its purchase. For others, handmade soap may be a new thing and not reasonable compared to the less expensive bars available at the local store. Here are some things to consider if you have never thought about buying and using handmade soap before.
Made with natural ingredients
Commercially made bars are made with chemical additives or synthetic detergents. These additives and detergents dry out the skin, create rashes and other irritations, and may be harmful to your health. If natural healthy ingredients are used in a commercial bar, the quantities are too small to be truly beneficial. Advertising may suggest a more natural product, but the ingredient label shows that the bar is still primarily composed of synthetic ingredients. To illustrate the difference between the effects of commercial soap and handmade soap, think about those who suffer from psoriasis or eczema. Many have found that commercial soap makes their condition worse, while handcrafted soap brings relief.
Handmade soap is real
Since commercially made bars are made with synthetic detergents, they cannot even legally use the term “soap.” Instead, they may be called “beauty bars,” “cleaning bars,” or something similar. Since handmade soap is made with real ingredients (shea butter and essential oils) the end result is a real and wholesome product.
Glycerin to moisturize the skin
Glycerin is a humectant; it attracts moisture and softens your skin. Glycerin is not merely added to handmade soap. Rather, it is naturally created in the process of mixing water, oils, and butters. In handmade soap, the glycerin is left in place. In commercial bars, however, glycerin is valuable and so it is extracted for use in other more profitable, moisturizing products. The absence of glycerin is another reason that commercial bars dry out the skin.
Handmade soap is art
In addition to the science of executing the proper balance of ingredients, soap makers take great pride in manipulating color, shape, and fragrance to produce beautiful-looking bars of soap that are fun to use and display. Some handmade soap bars look good enough to eat!
The smell is wonderful
Sometimes, handmade soap may retain the rich scent of its natural oils. More often, handmade soap has been made with essential oils that give of their healing properties and luscious scents.
