5 Reasons to Use Natural, Handmade Soap

Jun 15, 2021 | Handmade Soap

Soaps and body washes that you use to bathe with may actually be doing more harm to your body than good. Your skin is your body’s largest organ. Anything you rub on it eventually gets absorbed into your bloodstream, such as the “fragrance” in cosmetic soap. We all like to smell nice, but if the ingredient label on your soap mentions “Fragrance,” it could actually be a chemical cocktail that you’d have a hard time tracking down the contents of. The FDA doesn’t regulate the breakdown of Fragrance Ingredients, as they are the company’s “trade secret.” Cosmetic soaps can also contain sulfates, triclosan, and parabens – the more easier to pronounce chemicals. A lot of deodorant soaps, and beauty bars, are nothing more than detergents.

Try using natural, handmade soap. Being “natural” is the best reason to give it a go. Your Body Bliss soaps are made with natural cold process. They take longer to make, but the end result is well worth the wait. A variety of oils and butters are used, such as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Tamanu Oil, and Babassu Oil. That’s the number 1 reason.

Pine Tar Soap

Old fashion Pine Tar Bar Soap. Pine Tar has been used for centuries and is said to help with skin conditions like Eczema. It’s has a strong and smoky scent. A blend of 3 essential oils are wonderful for most skin conditions: Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree.
This soap contains Distilled Water, Saponified oils of Coconut, Manteca, Soybean, Olive, Shea Butter, Glycerine, Essential Oils of Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree. That’s it. All natural.

2. Natural Soaps Are Moisturizing – see Glycerin.

Oils and butters used in these handmade soaps are actually wonderful moisturizers. Truthfully, the more natural ingredients the less of a shelf-life the soap will have. Unless you need your soap to last until 2050, try the all-natural moisturizing power of these handmade soaps because they retain glycerin.

Glycerin is naturally occurring. Not added, per se, but it’s created during the soap making process. Once all of the natural ingredients are combined, you get soap, glycerin and a little water. The glycerin helps create a moisturizing protective layer on your skin.

Some commercial soap companies actually remove glycerin from their soaps because it decreases the shelf-life. And get this…they then add that glycerin to higher-priced lotions to sell as moisturizers for the bar soaps that dried you out.


3. Aromatherapy.

Using essential oils (not fragrance oils) smells better while also offering aromatherapeutic benefits. Aromatherapy can help with easing stress and boosting your spirits.

Lavender Goat Milk with Colloidal Oats. Pure Lavender Essential Oil has been used for centuries for bringing a sense of calm and tranquility. We added local organic goat milk to soothe, soften and nourish skin, then added colloidal oats for mild exfoliation.

4. Handmade Soaps Have Lather.

In order to cater to consumers who want a nice lather with their soap, commercial soap makers use synthetic foam boosters and lathering agents that end up drying out your skin.

The all-natural ingredients in Your Body Bliss soaps, like coconut oil, retain glycerin to help create a rich lather without the chemicals. And it will not dry out your skin.

Natural soap is not made with synthetic ingredients.
No artificial fragrances
No artificial colors
No Detergents


5. Only 100% Pure Essential Oils

The fact that only pure essential oils are used means these soaps are naturally antibacterial, anti-microbial, and have many properties that promote overall wellness.
