What Are the Best Natural Soaps?
Natural soap have been around for a long time. Since the medieval times when soap was produced from ashes, animal fats and herbs. It’s only in the 20th century that we began to add petrochemicals such as mineral oil and synthetic detergents to soap. Some of these ingredients are believed to be carcinogenic or harmful to the environment.
Fortunately, more and more people are switching to plant-based soaps, and for good reason. Many companies care more about their profits than the health of their customers. These companies use caustic chemicals that can strip the skin of its natural oils. And their production produces byproducts that pollute our waterways with many synthetic ingredients that we can see, smell, and touch. This is why it’s important to start using natural soap. They not only last longer than a synthetic counterpart but are safe for you and the environment.
So here’s 5 of our favourite natural soaps.
