Are Natural Soaps Really Better?

Are natural soaps really better?

This is a big question as many people are starting to research alternatives to commercially made soap.

How natural soap bars are different from store-bought bars always comes down to ingredients and the making process. Just like when you make a meal, quality ingredients and time can make, or break a meal. 

Store-bought bars are filled with artificial ingredients and cheap bulking ingredients that can cause your skin to flare up even if you don't have a skin condition! as they have one purpose, strip and cleanse skin.
A major thing I noticed when I switched to natural soap bars, was that there was no longer a need for hand moisturisers! Natural soap give, moisture rather than stripping your skin of it's natural oils.

Benefits of Natural Soaps

  • Chemical-Free: Natural soaps are made from ingredients derived from nature, such as plant oils, herbs, and essential oils. They do not contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, or preservatives, making them a healthier choice for your skin.
  • Gentle on the Skin: Natural soaps are typically gentler on the skin as they do not strip away the skin's natural oils. They are suitable for sensitive skin types and can help soothe skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Conventional soaps often contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to the environment. Natural soaps, on the other hand, are biodegradable and do not contribute to water pollution.

One thing that may be a factor when it comes to choosing one over the other is generally price. As natural soaps are made with essential oils and olive oil they are more costly to make. 

So if price is a factor check out our sud duds! as we are a zero waste handmade brand, its important to offer offcuts and imperfect soap is available to the public. So this is a great option if you are looking for soaps for personal use. 

But either way, when it comes to choosing a soap that works for you can be experimental, but when you do find a soap that works for you it can be truely life changing, especially if you do suffer from a skin condition.
