How to clean your skin, SERIOUSLY.
Moisturizing creams, shampoos and shower gels, like many other cleaners we have at home, contain detergents. Detergent contains synthetic lathering agents, artificial colors, and a slew of chemicals we can not even pronounce. Antibacterial and antimicrobial soaps often contain triclosan. Triclosan is a toxic chemical that is known to cause cancer.
Remember, your skin is porous and absorbent. Then, the chronic use of chemical products will cause the body to store the chemicals in the body fat. With enough accumulations of toxins in the body, illness can occur.
What's the alternative?
Sure, these soap bars generally cost more than the detergent bars you'll find at grocery stores. But the difference is these soap bars are actually good for your skin and are good for the planet. With handmade soaps, just like with commercially manufactured bars, you need to read the labels. You want to find soaps that use only pure, organic oils or fats. If plants are used in the bars (many bars incorporate seeds and petals from various plants) they should be certified organic. If you want a colored or scented soap bar, look for one that uses organic essential oils and natural, organic colorants. Another nice ingredient to find in your soaps is Clay. Clay is often used to increase lather in soap bars. It has the added benefit of being a natural detoxifier.
The best soap for your skin and our planet is a handmade, organic, all natural soap bar. Once you've tried one of these lathery treasures, you'll never again be satisfied with 'store-bought' bars. So do yourself and your world a big favor and start using REAL soap.
But why take our word for it? The best way to find out is to put it to the test! Visit BLWEessences.com, purchase a bar of our #natural #homemadesoap and give it a try. We can assure you, the experience will be well worth it.
