The Benefits of Handmade Soap

Soap is one of the oldest cleansers used in the contemporary world. Soap is made by a chemical reaction caused by a mixture of oil, water, and lye (the catalyst in the soap making process). When making soap, all the lye is completely depleted during the saponification process. You cannot make soap without lye. The oils and ingredients used in making soap change for each recipe and each oil has different properties that change the overall type of soap cleansing. Animal and plant oils are used for making soap and each gives a different soap texture and result.

The commercial soap bought in stores today isn't what our ancestors would define as soap. Soap has natural moisturizing qualities which have been stripped from modern factory soaps. While soap is a "cleanser" factory soap is more like a "detergent" and will dry and irritate your skin. The reason why factory soaps do this to your skin is because all the natural glycerin that is produced during saponification is stripped away and sold to manufacturers to be used in higher end products such as lotions and body butters. When companies make soap in bulk, they add other ingredients to replace the lost glycerin so that they can get more soap made for less money. This can prove to be very harmful to the consumer.

While handmade soap has been used for thousands of years by our ancestors, it was only recently that we switched to mass-produced soap. Over time, people have been slowly switching back to handmade soaps due to their health benefits. The use of synthetic, harmful chemicals in factory soap has been scientifically proven to cause harm to the skin over extended periods of time.

handmade soap have always been known for the effective cleaning power but recently scientific studies have shown the benefits of handmade soap to be incredible. It's always been speculated that handmade soap has built-in healing properties. People suffering from skin disorders like eczema, or have excessively sensitive skin, have found relief through the use of handmade soap. Compared to the commercial soaps in the store, handmade soaps are much more mild and skin friendly. The major difference between factory soap and handmade soap is the amount of glycerin found natural handmade soap. Glycerin has natural moisturizing abilities and is typically stripped from commercial soap and put into lotions. That stripped glycerin is then replaced by synthetic, irritating chemicals.

Natural handmade soap is much better for you than commercial store-bought soap. If you've been having skin problems or have easily irritated skin, you should seriously consider switching to handmade soap  You'll notice the difference almost immediately and will grateful that you did switch.
