Compared to commercial soaps which are full of chemicals, castile soaps are environmentally-friendly alternatives when it comes to buying soaps in Singapore. While you may not find these in your regular supermarket stores, health conscious insiders have been using castile soaps for the longest time. One of the most well-known brands is Dr. Bronners from the United States, but there are also other brand and non-branded castile soaps that you can purchase from specialty stores and pharmacies as well.
But what is so special about castile soap for you to switch over from commercial soaps?
Castile soaps are natural soaps made from vegetable oils like coconut or olive oils and are usually manufactured with little to no chemicals. Originating in Spain, these soaps have long been known for being non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
Why You Should Switch to Castile Soaps
There are many reasons to switch over to castile soaps from your regular soap, including affordability, more health benefits and being better for the environment.
Here is our list of why you should switch:
Better for Your Skin
Made from natural vegetable oils, castile soaps do not contain ingredients, such as chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) that may cause your skin to become irritated and red.
Other commercials soaps may also contain artificial colours and fragrances that can irritate people’s skin, especially if they have sensitive skin. Most castile soaps use natural fragrances, such as essential oils or have unscented versions for those with sensitive skin.
Buy in Bulk
Castile soaps are very affordable due to the lower costs of ingredients and are often sold in bulk, thus reducing your costs even further. They can also be versatile enough to be used for various cleaning needs, such as body soap, dishwashing liquid and even as a laundry detergent. With one product that solves all needs, you can cut down on the number of toiletries that you purchase for the household.
Better for environment
Along with the use of natural ingredients, this prevents synthetic chemical ingredients from flowing into rivers and lakes when washed down the drains. Some soaps may also contain microbeads for exfoliation, which can be harmful for the environment when it enters the natural waterways. Castile soaps also do not contain animal fats like tallow, making them vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
