Natural Handmade Soaps: Natural soaps are primarily made from a chemical reaction between water, lye, fats and oils. When mixed together, these ingredients react with each other- in a process called ‘Saponification’, to produce soap and glycerine.
Why do you buy handmade soaps and what are the benefits?
Today there are very few true soaps on the market. Most body cleansers, both liquid and solid, are actually synthetic detergent products. Detergent cleansers are popular because they make suds easily in water and don’t form gummy deposits. Some of these detergent products are actually marketed as “soap” but are not true soap according to the regulatory definition of the word.
Commercially produced soaps on the other hands are manufactured by combining a number of chemicals, including several petroleum products. These products often contain preservatives, synthetic fragrances and other chemical compounds that do more harm than good.
Balancing The pH Of The Skin: The skin itself does not have a pH, rather, the natural oily secretions from the body that coats the layer has a pH of 5.5. This layer of thin natural secretion is known as the acidic mantel, which helps keep the skin well moisturised. The slightly acidic nature of this larger helps the good bacteria on the skin thrive, while discouraging the growth of bacteria and microbes that do not grow in an acidic environment. Besides, the glycerine in the natural soaps are much more skin friendly and tend to balance the moisture effectively.
Commercial soaps tend to use free Alkali, which increases the soap’s shelf life, and keeps the soap slightly acidic. However, it also aids in drying of the skin. Even the soaps that promise to moisturise the skin tend to do so with the harsh chemical compounds present in the skin, which hampers with the natural acidic mantel, resulting in a dry skin.
