There are many benefits to using homemade and handcrafted products, especially in today’s marketplace where so many beauty and skin products are loaded with synthetic chemicals and hazardous toxins.
Here are 5 benefits of handcrafted artisans soaps:
The very best reason to use handcrafted soap is the ingredients. Handmade soap is made of vegetable oils and butters that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are essential to healthy skin. Handcrafted soap has not only improved my skin, but provided relief of itchiness, dryness and skin conditions. Everyone wants healthy skin and switching to daily use of handmade soap is the best place to start.
It is commonly called soap, but that mass produced commercial stuff that you get at the grocery store is anything but. You have an array of personal cleansers to choose from that are labeled as deodorant soap, body bars, body washes and the beauty bar. These are just chemical cocktails made of detergents and synthetic ingredients that dehydrate and age skin, cause allergic reactions and have been linked to various forms of cancer. Handcrafted soap is the real deal and one of the most appealing aspects is that harmful and unnecessary ingredients are NOT added to make it.
Glycerin isn’t added to homemade soaps – it’s created during the soap making process! Glycerin is a precious emollient that softens and maintains water balance by attracting moisture to your skin. It is proven to be so beneficial to your skin that it is extracted from commercial ‘soap’ and reserved for higher priced body care, hygiene and pharmaceutical products. Handmade soap retains all of its natural glycerin and produces a rich and luxurious lather.
When you purchase handmade soap from your local soapmaker, you can be pretty sure that no humans were harmed, impoverished or subjected to sweat shop working conditions in the process. No communities or natural habitats were laid to waste by the run off from a some large chemical factory and we don’t use lab animals to test our products.
