More and more people are trying and using
and handcrafted soaps and products due to the fact
there is more and more information available to the
average consumer about what is being used in
that you buy in the stores. And also there side effects
long term effects.
A little info on store bought soap;
commercial soaps are
not as "clean" as you might think. First of all,
soaps contain harmful FD&C dyes, which are known
cause cancer, chromosome damage, hyperactivity,
hives, etc. Furthermore, name brand soaps spend
money on their packaging than the actual soap (not
mention advertising expenses). The naturally-
glycerin, a moisturizer, is also removed from
soaps (so the bars are harder and longer-lasting).
why we can't wash our faces with commercial soap,
instead need to now buy an additional product
(presumably offered by the same company) to wash
faces. Another danger of store-bought soap is that
animal testing is still being used. Possibly even more
disturbing is that many
name brand soaps are made with animal by-products
(tallow, lard). Not only are these by-products full of
growth hormones, but they clog pores.
(This information is available to any consumer, all
have to do is a little research.)
