The Benefits of Handmade Soap

by Michele Griffiths |

Do your skin a favor and stop using commercial soap!  “Luxury” handmade soaps are really not that much more expensive but are much better for your skin.

Most commercial soap available in the pharmacy or the grocery store is manufactured in vast quantities using and comprising industrial chemicals.  The ingredients in these face and hand soaps really do not differ very much from what you might use on your counter or floor except that the concentrations of the detergents or surfactants etc. used is varied to suit the required products.

Typically for hand soaps, additional chemicals have to be added to the raw detergents to improve the aesthetic factors such as lather, slipperiness, the firmness of the bar, the glossiness, the smell etc. Many of these chemicals can cause side effects such as dermatitis and eczema. While I am not opposed to progress my dislike for these soaps is first that they often work too well and strip away way too much of the skins natural oils leaving the skin dry and depleted and often irritated.  The second issue is that I am unsure what the longterm exposure of all these chemicals is likely to be on my skin or indeed on my body since several of the chemicals can be completely absorbed.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just be a little kinder to your skin in the first place!

Supernatural soaps are all handmade in small batches using only the finest ingredients including Almond oil, Avocado oil, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Sunflower oil and many more.  

We only use small batch real Cold Process soap making techniques since our goal is always to deliver the maximum nutrients to the skin from the wonderful natural ingredient oils used to make up all our soaps.   We also cure our soaps for a minimum of 12 weeks which is much longer than most manufacturers hence our bars are longer lasting but feel amazing when lathered and have wonderful moisturizing properties.
