Who loves to get sudsy?
We do! When it comes to soap and lathering up, we’ve got you covered. Shmutzies is a small soap company but we pack a big punch when it comes to the quality of our products. We create everything we make with love and laughter and some really good natural ingredients!
If you are a big soap user, and who isn’t these days, this article is for you. While we have become more keenly aware of washing our hands and the importance of soap, thanks to the pandemic, it’s always been an important part of our lives. We’re pretty sure people were using it pre-pandemic to get clean (and if you weren’t, we just don’t know what to say)!
The question is, how were you using soap and how are you using it today? Has your perception of it changed or are you doing the same cleaning routine you always have? Most people go to big box stores and buy liquid “soap” and use it, go about their day, and don’t give it another thought. But are you aware that these so-called soaps aren’t really soap but detergent?
True soap is made with natural ingredients, including glycerin. Many soap manufacturers take out the glycerin. Why? Profit, that’s why. Glycerin helps the soap to be a moisturizing agent, to keep your skin smooth and soft while it cleans you. If the glycerin is taken out, they can put it in something else, like a lotion. So, after you dry out your skin with their “soap” you will have to go buy their lotion to moisturize. If the glycerin stayed put, you wouldn’t be buying multiple products.
It’s a big market in the soap industry and many big manufacturers have been using this trick for ages. Because the beauty industry is not regulated, manufacturers are free to use whatever ingredients they like. But behold the smart consumer!
People have gotten wise to the situation and are now looking at what is in a product before they buy. Many people are even smarter and have just opted to buy products that contain only natural ingredients. Many of those products come from smaller companies that produce their soap and other products in smaller batches. It’s a more tedious process but it is so worth it, and we think you agree.
At Shmutzies, we are committed to using only fresh, natural ingredients in our soap and other products (and we leave the glycerin in!). We make soap to fit all your moods. Lavender for peace and calm, peppermint to heal, eucalyptus for fresh air and breathing, and citrus to revive and waken you, just to name a few. There is something for everyone in our soap line.
