Why We Love Avocado Soap

Posted on in Natural Oil and Soaps

Avocado has become one of the most popular foods in the world, especially here in the United States.  At Falls River Soap Company, our Avocado Soap with Jasmine Oil is one of our best selling handmade soap products.  The rise is so significant that sales of Hass avocados, which make up more than 95 percent of all avocados consumed in the United States, soared to a record of nearly 1.9 billion pounds (or some 4.25 billion avocados) last year, more than double the amount consumed in 2005, and nearly four times as many sold in 2000.

This Super Food (yes that is right, the avocado is now recognized as a super food) is becoming so popular that there are restaurants, which are dedicated their whole menu to this fruit. Such avocado-only restaurants are popping up all over the world in metropolitan cities such as Amsterdam, London and New York City to name a few.

Here are some of the health benefits of avocados:

Enhanced digestion – although the avocado consists of a creamy-like texture, it is actually high in fiber with about 6-7 grams per half fruit. Eating foods with natural fiber reduces the risk of constipation and colon cancer, as well as maintains a healthy digestive tract.

Cancer - consumption of folate, a nutrient that produces and maintains new cells, (not to mention that avocados contain more folate per ounce than any other fruit) can protect against colon, stomach, pancreatic and cervical cancers.

Healthy babies – consumption of folate is vital for a healthy pregnancy as it reduces the risk of miscarriage and neural tube defects.

Osteoporosis treatment – the saponins substance, which is found in avocados, is associated with relief of symptoms in knee osteoarthritis.

Protection from chronic disease - according to a recent article in Medical News Today, researchers at the Department of Internal Medicine and Nutritional Sciences Program of the University of Kentucky, found that "high fiber intakes are associated with significantly lower risks of developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases. Increased fiber intake has also been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and enhance weight loss for obese individuals.”

WebMd highlights some additional health benefits for avocados:

  • Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving, including potassium (which helps control blood pressure), lutein (which is good for your eyes), and folate (which is crucial for cell repair and during pregnancy).

  • Avocados are a good source of B vitamins, which help you fight off disease and infection. They also give you vitamins C and E, plus natural plant chemicals that may help prevent cancer.

  • Avocados are low in sugar. And they contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. In one study, people who added a fresh avocado half to their lunch were less interested in eating during the next three hours.

With all the health benefits, why not go avocado? Start with our amazing Avocado Soap!

Why You Need To Start Using Organic Soap

Posted on in Natural Oil and Soaps

When considering the secretive ingredients and industrious processes used to manufacture soaps, it comes as no surprise that chemically made soaps contain harmful chemicals, and questionable dyes and fragrances. In fact, when you wash your hands with chemically made soap, your skin absorbs these harmful substances, putting both your skin and your general health at considerable long term risk. This post delves into why you should consider replacing chemically produced soap with organic soap alternatives.

Chemicals and Pesticides Free - As all ingredients used in organic soaps are derived from plants and herbs, one of the greatest benefits that one can get out of using organic soap is in avoiding contact with any chemicals or pesticides. Furthermore, according to the American College of Toxicology report, high contact with chemicals like sodium laurel sulphate can cause long term skin damage. Natural soap is free of these harmful chemicals and risk free.

Gentler & Healthier on the Skin – It is no secret that many people do not respond well to chemically produced soaps. However, you can mitigate and possibly avoid skin problems that are induced by harmful chemical ingredients by switching to organic soap. This is because organic soaps do not contain ingredients like herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides.

Additionally, animal fats used in the manufacture of soaps can cause irritation in the skin due to its nature, while organic methods of manufacturing soap (made of vegetable oils instead of animal fats) protects the skin and are thereby much safer. 

Effect on the Environment – For those seeking to protect our environment, natural organic based soap is the soap for you as it is completely environmentally friendly, as pesticides and chemicals are not used in the soap making process. Moreover, organic soap is significantly more biodegradable than chemically made soap, and most importantly does not contain synthetic chemicals. Lastly, according to the article “The Benefits of Organic Soap” on the Global Healing Center, “most organic soaps are cruelty-free, meaning they’re not tested on animals. Purchasing natural and organic products is better for the environment, too. Organic ingredients are grown without chemicals and pesticides, both of which can pollute the water supply, air and soil. Organic soap might not lead the charge in saving the world but it supports the fundamental effort.”
