If you’ve already done the research and made the switch, you would realise that using and buying organic soap can be the best thing for you and your family! There are so many reasons that people have made the switch over to organic soap, but most of them have to do with what goes into your soap.
Organic soap is made from natural, organic ingredients that are safe for your body and skin. Organic can mean many different things, but they usually refer to ingredients that are grown, harvested, processed, packed and stored without any use of chemicals and artificial fertilizers.
To be on the safe side, ingredients sourced from certified organic suppliers are the most stringent. Being organically certified means that not only are ingredients grown without any chemicals or fertilizers, but the whole process is audited by an independent third-party association to ensure that the whole supply chain adheres by the certification guidelines.
This can include the separation of organic and non-organic produce, the prohibition of utilising land that has been sprayed with pesticides unless it has been stopped for a number of years, and ensuring that no GMOs are used for farming, and much more. Certified organic suppliers also have to submit a working organic plan for their farms and are subject to periodic checks and inspections.
Thus, you can feel safer using certified organic products, especially those that come into close contact with your skin, one of your body’s largest organs.
Benefits of Using Organic Soap
Here are more benefits of using organic soap:
Know what You are Getting
As mentioned above, especially for certified organic products, consumers have a better understanding of what goes into their soap. With the emphasis on organic ingredients without any chemicals, consumers are able to have a better peace of mind when purchasing organic products. Organic companies are also likely to be more transparent about their production process and product information, allowing consumers to know what they are putting on their skin. This can especially be beneficial for those who have skin issues which may react or be allergic to certain chemicals like eczema, psoriasis and sensitive skin.
Good for Your Skin
The use of natural, organic ingredients in soap can lower the risk of inflammation and irritation of the skin. Furthermore, organic ingredients may be natural sources of beneficial vitamins and minerals that can help moisturise and improve your skin condition. For example, organic castile soap uses plant-based vegetables oils as their soap base, which are naturally moisturising and less likely to cause skin irritation for most consumers.
Organic soaps can also be cruelty-free, as they may contain vegetable oils instead of animal fats as the soap base. Most commercial soaps use some sort of animal fat or tallow as a soap base, which is not necessary in the soap making process. Organic brands are more likely to carefully source ingredients that are ethical and cruelty-free where possible.
Organic soaps are also contain more biodegradable and environmentally-friendly ingredients, as they do not consist of harmful chemicals that may run off and pollute the natural lakes and rivers. Commercial soaps contain chemicals like SLS and microbeads that cause water pollution and may affect the aquatic life in the water, causing damage to the whole ecosystem.
Safe for pets and babies
The natural ingredients found in organic soaps are also safe and gentle enough to be used on pets and babies, who tend to need milder types of soaps. Organic soaps can be unscented and still effective enough to be used on pets and babies, while not irritating their thinner, more sensitive skin.
