With the use of artificial soaps, their pricing fits perfectly for what you get, so why even bother with natural soap? Artificial soaps may include way more things than you bargained for. While natural soaps have nothing outside of the norm compared to artificial ones. So now we need to establish what is soap?
Soap is simply the result of mixing lye and fat together. Many civilizations cultures discovered this mixture among themselves with their own special properties. By just mixing the ashes and oils that come from plants or the fat of animals that creates a salt structure which traps the oils while mixing freely with water. The simple recipe has been used for thousands of years by people all around the world. Then in the 1800s detergent and liquid soap was invented and was used during World War 1 due to oil shortages. You might have used detergent today when washing dishes, doing laundry or even used it in the shower. Detergent became really popular because it didn’t cause your skin to dry out and crack but that was due to significantly diluting its ingredients which then reduced its amount of cleaning power by a good amount. This my modern detergents are full of additional chemicals, to allow the product to clean while remaining mild. But many of those other chemicals can be harmful while modern soaps used exclusively for bathing don’t need to be diluted just like detergents are.
Soap is preferably used for your personal care but do most soaps contain a multitude of additional chemicals like detergents when instead they can remain natural? Cost is the main answer to that question. Large manufacturers produce soap for countries all around the world in very high volume and therefore need to cut costs wherever they can. Natural animal fats and plant oils are more expensive than artificial detergent sulfates, and can’t be just be made out of anywhere at a rapid pace. Sometimes artificial soap manufacturers also take advantage of the placebo effect. The lathering agents can be an attempt to fool you into thinking your getting clearer because it looks soapier. Natural soap lathers naturally as it touches the air and the oil on your skin. Unnatural soap companies know the average consumer will look at more bubbles means more cleanliness theory, and so they add the chemicals in for this purpose. Artificial soaps smell so nice, don’t they? Hold on, those aren’t natural ingredients you smell, but synthetic esters and scents. Rather than mixing in genuine lavender, honey, oatmeal, or other natural soap ingredients, artificial soaps use manufactured fragrance oils which can create any scent they so choose.
So why use natural soap? Well, the best answer is that the ingredients used in natural soap have a purpose, and that to create and improve the soap in fundamentally useful ways. Artificial soap tries to trick you every step of the way, with fake fats, fake smells, fake colors, fake everything! Cutting costs is the name of the game when it comes to synthetic soap. It’s just there to lie to you. KIND is proud to hand-make only the finest natural soaps, with no extraneous synthetic compounds or trickery. Here are the benefits of buying Natural Soaps.
