Benefits of Handmade Soap with Natural Oils and Butters
When you buy handmade soap, have you ever wondered what all those different oils and butters really do and what benefits do they have on your skin?
Some of the oils used in Falls River Soap and are coconut oil, palm oil, and olive oil.
Coconut oil is useful in formulations for dry, itchy, sensitive skin. It will not clog pores, and it absorbs readily into the skin. Coconut oil helps to make a hard bar of soap with a rich abundant lather. It is also used in some body care products such as lotion bars.
Palm oil helps to make for a hard bar of soap when used with coconut and olive oils. It also helps the soap to saponify more quickly.
Olive Oil is one of the best moisturizing oils available. Olive oil attracts external moisture to the skin and still permits the skin to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum. It does help soothe inflamed skin.
Another ingredient we use in most of our soaps is Shea Butter. Shea butter helps to protect the skin against the damaging effects of the sun while repairing cellular degeneration.
The next time you purchase handmade soap or body products look for some of these wonderful ingredients on the label. Your skin will thank you!
