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
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 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 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:

ingredients you may want in your soap, based on the purpose you intend to use it
for, such as natural exfoliates and colorants.
