How soap works and its benefits

As well as the wonderful, uplifting feeling of being clean, soap has many benefits in caring for your skin. One way it does this is by maintaining the skin’s hydrolipidic film. Soap stimulates the glands to produce sebum, a substance which moisturizes and protects the skin, which is beneficial for dry skin.

Can soap kill bacteria ?

One of the major benefits of soap, especially in this current climate, is its ability to prevent and remove the growth of bacteria. Soap dissolves the fat membrane which holds the bacteria together and inactivates it, proving to be one of the most simple and effective methods against viruses.

I’m thankful you told us that natural soaps are known to be gentle on sensitive skin because of the absence of harsh chemicals and fragrances that can most likely cause irritation or allergic reactions. The soap I bought recently gave me a bad allergic reaction and caused me to have rashes on my arms for a week, so I need to switch to a new one soon that won’t affect my sensitive skin badly. I’ll keep this in mind while I look for where I can shop for scented natural soaps here in New Orleans soon.
