How do you choose an All Natural Soap


If you want to avoid harsh chemicals found in commercial soaps, all natural soap is the best choice. Whether you are seeking natural beard soap, body soap or shaving soap, it's essential to know how to identify and differentiate all natural soap from the synthetic soap. What is the best way to choose the best soap made from natural ingredients?

It is important to recognize that the vast most cleansing products that are sold in shops under the name soap are not actually soaps in any way. They are better called synthetic chemical detergents that contain synthetic fragrance oils dyes and harsh ingredients like triethanolamine that can be hazardous to your eyes and the lungs.

All of these ingredients are toxic and are the major reason why people experience skin problems such as dry skin, eczema, and Psoriasis. Additionally, Hemp body butter and shampoo makers use dimethicone, the synthetically-derived silicon-based polymer known to trap sebum and bacteria under the skin, causing more breakouts and prevent your skin from exfoliating dead skin cells.

Natural soaps on the other hand , are made from only essential oils and natural ingredients that will not dry or harm your skin as do store-bought soaps. In contrast to store-bought soaps they do not have the moisturizing glycerine stripped from their soaps. Commercial soap makers can take out the glycerine in order that they can put it in creams and moisturizers.

Natural Soap Making: There are three ways to make soap using natural ingredients:

Melt & Pour

Melt & Pour soap bases constitute the lowest level in natural soap making. Melt & Pour soaps can be made using a soap making kits that contain already-made pieces. Once the soap is melt, additional ingredients can be added.

Although these soaps are superior than some store bought soaps, they usually contain ingredients like Sorbitan Oleate, which is made from alcohol sorbitol, and has been associated with cancer. The good intentions of people are often to sell melt and pour soaps in farmers markets or farm stands. Even if they only use natural ingredients in their base, the problem of melt and pour soaps is that they do not have control over the final product. Although soaps made of melt and pour bases can be more effective than those sold in stores We don't recommend buying soaps claiming to be natural.

Cold Process

Cold process soap is more efficient than the production of whipped Body Butter. It's made by adding a lye solution animal fats like lard, or vegetable fats, like coconut oil and castor bean oil and commonly palm oil. Once lye is added to the fats then saponification takes place with the base (the lye) and fatty acids react to form soap. After the mixture has been cured for about 6-8 weeks in a mold, it is then put into the soap. The soap will continue to saponify throughout this period of time. Cold process soap is extremely smooth and enjoyable to use. The only disadvantage for using the cold-process technique is that beneficial qualities and scent of essential oils could be lost in the saponification process because it produces a lot of heat. But, natural soaps made with cold processing beat melt-and-pour base and the soaps that are sold in stores.

Hot Process

Hot process soap is made in almost the same manner like cold process soap however, there is an additional step. To accelerate the process of saponification the soap is heated.


This is crucial because the essential oils are added after bulk of the heat is created and therefore are able to keep their aroma and beneficial properties. We have found that the method of hot processing is the most effective method of making soap that is 100% natural, so that our soap can deliver all of the awesome qualities that our ingredients offer.


In addition to making sure that your soap was created using either the hot or cold method, you also need to make sure your soap is made with beneficial, all natural ingredients. These are the most important ingredients you should look for in all-natural soap:

Vegetable oils

Lye (sodium hydroxide)

Essential oils

They should be the foundation of your entire soap. There are many other ingredients you may want in your soap, based on the purpose you intend to use it for, such as natural exfoliates and colorants.

These ingredients are:

Birch Tar: For ages, birch oil has been used for its healing properties. Birch tar is an effective and non-toxic treatment for skin issues like acne, eczema and seborrhea. It helps to improve blood circulation and prevent toxic buildup on the skin and in muscles. It also has disinfectant and antiseptic properties that aid in speeding up the healing time of small cuts and Abrasions.

Black pepper Ground black pepper is a great exfoliant for dead skin cells and stimulates lymphatic flow and blood circulation.
