Because it makes your skin feel so much better!.........
Natural products work far better than synthetic chemical imitations that tear up our skins' natural cycles. Human sebum, the natural oil that your body makes to protect your skin, is very important and it is the first layer of protection against the elements. Unknowingly we strip it away when we use bars of detergent from the grocery store. Human sebum is so important to good skin health and using natural soap is a great way to treat yourself and improve overall skin health. Learning the difference between natural products versus chemically derived substitutes is actually simple. Chemicals in skin care products should be avoided. If the ingredient list is full of long scary words you do not understand this means you should steer clear. Buy skin care products with ingredients you can understand. This is the ingredient list of our Kukui Nut Dreams Bar Soap. Simple and very effective without harsh chemicals. Un-Scented Natural Hawaii Soap
Coconut, Palm, Soybean & Olive Oil Macadamia & Kukui Nut Oil and Organic Oat Flour
Understanding the difference between natural soaps and detergent bars is a great place to start learning. Not many other people I meet know any difference exists. Around 1942 production of soap by the large manufacturing companies changed in a big way. Soap makers found that the same fats that turn into soap and make naturally occurring glycerin can yield more money if those fats are turned into nitro glycerin (gun powder). Yes, Palm Olive Brand detergent (as in Palm and Olive oils) made more money turning fats into gunpowder for the war effort. So, if they no longer make fats into soap today, what is that stuff on the shelves at your supermarket? Good question! The replacement for soap is detergent. Detergents are more profitable for big manufacturers because the cost of the raw material is so much lower. Replacing Coconut, Palm, Soybean & Olive Oil with much less expensive petroleum chemicals like sodium lauryl sulphate a foaming agent created huge profits and streamlined the production. All of these new chemicals lowered the cost to manufacture and the final bars of detergent cost less for the consumer than soap. We all have a part to play in the fact that we can't buy soap any more at the grocery store. Supply and demand. Now more and more people are finding they have bad skin reactions to detergents and chemically based skin care products, driving more people every day to educate themselves about using natural alternatives in the skin care products they buy.
The main problem with using the cheap skin products based in petroleum is that human skin has natural and protective oil layers called sebum which detergents and harsh chemicals strip away. When our natural shield is removed, any nasty chemicals in the synthetically derived “Beauty Bar “ are free to damage unprotected skin cells. With a real bar of natural soap, you get a moisturizing and cleansing bar soap that is gentle on your skin and still has the naturally occurring glycerin.
