The Benefits of Using Natural Soaps in Your Beauty Routine
From an early age, it’s been engrained that washing ourselves with soap is what we do to get rid of all the everyday germs and nasties. And yes, I’m stating the obvious here, but have you ever given thought to the type of soap you’ve been using all your life? Perhaps the type of soap you are so used to using, actually contains the nasties have been trying to avoid.
Natural soaps are completely different from commercially-made or store bought ones. They contain no harsh chemicals, no artificial fragrance oil, and don’t go through any chemical restructuring. Already you can see there is a benefit to introducing natural soaps into your home, and there are many more.
An incredible amount of people suffer from dry skin at any age and any given time of the year, and the usual answer is to apply moisturiser. Naturally formed glycerin is a wonderful ingredient for keeping the skin soft as it continues to work even after it has been rinsed off. Glycerol is colourless, odourless and very gentle, making it safe for sensitive skin.
Natural soaps contain high concentrations of glycerin to ensure that your skin is kept feeling soft and nourished with every day use. It’s a bi-product of the soaping process, and because natural soaps retain their full glycerin amount, it will be absorbed into your skin during bathing – even remaining when the soap washes away.
Just take a quick look at the list of ingredients for an average bar of soap that you purchase from a local shop. Chances are you’ll find a plethora of items that make no sense to you, like sodium lauroyl isethionate which can pose skin irritations, and synthetic benzyl alcohol, a colourless liquid that is used as a preservative, a fragrance ingredient, is the active ingredient in head lice treatment, and is used as a solvent.
Natural soaps, like our luxury artisan soaps from Alexami’s newest Aromabotanique Collection, don’t have ingredients you can’t pronounce. They have each been blended from the purist natural organic ingredients which are free from palm oil, synthetic colour and fragrances.
When you purchase a luscious, delectable natural handmade soap from Alexami, you can be 100% certain that no humans were harmed, impoverished or subjected to poor working conditions in the process.
