Reasons to Use Handmade Soaps
Coconut oil is obtained from copra, which is dried coconut meat. A percentage of coconut oil in cosmetics is moisturizing, however, too much of it can be drying. It produces a hard bar of soap with quick fluffy lather.
Glycerin is Good
Handmade soap retains all the natural glycerin in the soap, unlike most commercial bars. Glycerin is a natural emollient that boosts lather and provides a milder soap. Glycerin is removed from commercial bars since it is a valuable chemical – more valuable than soap.
Handmade soap not only uses sustainable resources, it’s environmentally friendly. The fats and oils used in soap making are natural ingredients from crops that are either perennial or can be re-grown yearly.
Each soap recipe is unique for the purpose of that soap. For instance, try one of the baby soaps!
No Synthetic Ingredients
Many commercial “soaps” actually are detergent bars. These soap bars are based on synthetic detergents instead of all natural ingredients.
Handmade soap can be made with the same premium ingredients like shea butter and cocoa butter used in cosmetics, lotions, and creams.
Saves You Money
Handmade soap tends to last longer than most commercial soaps, saving you more money in the long run.
You can expect the same exceptional quality in each bar of handmade soap.
