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.”
