What is in your soap?
Ask the soap maker or check the ingredients. Typical store bought or “commercial” soaps that may be labeled as “natural” are actually detergents that include chemical hardeners, foaming agents and artificial fragrances. Look for soaps made with real oils, butters and real essential oils which are extracted from plants that are safe and therapeutic when used properly. They are more expensive, but well worth it in terms of your health and the health of our planet. If the label just says fragrance”, “perfume”, or “parfum” it’s probably a fake synthetic scent. Other synthetic additives to avoid are FD&C colors, dyes, antibacterial triclosan & triclocarban, EDTA, TEA, DEA, sodium laureth and sodium lauryl sulfates, to name a few. They’re not kind to your skin, your health or our environment.
