Plant-based soaps are becoming increasingly popular in a world where we have relied on other methods for so long. You may already know they come with a wide range of benefits, but do you know what these benefits are?
It should come as no surprise that plant-based soaps are packed full of natural ingredients, and this makes them more appealing than other types of soap that you might come across at the store.
With these natural ingredients, you needn’t worry about additives or anything artificial. Instead, what you see is what you get. For example, Handmade Naturals offers a Purifying Charcoal Soap. This soap contains several different natural ingredients. We use saponified seeds of sunflower, coconut, palm, and safflower. These oils produce a lather that is conditioning for the skin. Also, many of the ingredients in our soap are organic, and they are all naturally derived from plants.
Better for your skin
These natural ingredients directly impact the quality and performance of the soap when you use it. While other types of soap are full of mysterious ingredients, the natural approach means that everything is better for your skin. The likes of Honey is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, which makes it a superb choice if you experience acne. Similarly, Witch Hazel will moisturize the skin and keep you hydrated throughout the day to prevent dry and irritated skin.
No testing on animals
No testing on animals is perhaps the most important benefit of plant-based soaps that people know about. While large corporations have been accused of animal cruelty and animal testing for their products, the plant-based approach avoids all of this and instead focuses on a process that relies on animal-friendly methods.
Usually, this involves using coconut oils as a base then mixing with essential oils to create the perfect fragrance along with different fruits, spices, and herbs. What’s more, plant-based soap manufacturers are also more transparent with their process, so you can double-check anything you are unsure of to feel more confident about what you are buying.
Most plant-based soaps are made entirely at the makers workshop. Depending on the size of the company, this workshop could even be a room in their house. This means that the overall process does not have as much of an impact on the environment as regular soaps. There are no toxic waste deposits, nor will chemicals impact the environment the same way a cosmetics factory would do.
As plant-based soap makers are working on a smaller scale, there are also fewer emissions that contribute to air pollution.
If you’ve ever found yourself bored with the usual soap variety you come across in the store, plant-based soaps can open your world to an entirely different experience. While you are used to Chamomile and Aloe Vera, the soap products offered by Handmade Naturals are available in a wide range of ingredients, fragrances, and purposes. From Honey to Lavender to Charcoal to Blood Orange and beyond, you can find soap to suit all skin types and needs. There are solutions to dry skin, blemish-prone skin, and also all-around soap that are suitable for all skin types. With plant-based soaps, you are effectively spoiled for choice.
If you’re looking for plant-based soaps as a gift for yourself or someone special, or you want to find a better alternative to soap you’d find at the supermarket, Handmade Naturals has a wide range of soaps in an array of fragrances to help replenish your skin and remove impurities, irritation, and more.
