Natural Ingredients Skin Care

Natural ingredients in household soap and skin care make a difference in how you feel. Good all natural soap, shampoo bar for hair, moisturizing lip balm and lotion sticks, have everything to do with contributing to your personal well being.

All natural soap should give you lots of lather, smell clean and fresh, whether it is scented or not, and rinse off well. When properly made out of natural ingredients, skin care leaves you feeling good, clean, and comfortable.

Poorly made soap out of lower quality ingredients can leave you itchy and dry. When you don't feel physically at your best, it can also affect your happiness.

Natural perfumes, called essential oils, have medicinal properties, along with pleasing aromas.

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $6.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.84 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $10.00. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.18 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers. That's $.12 a shower.

Soap for hair

Hair is exposed to the elements, collecting dirt, debris (including scalp flakes), and excess oils. Lather has the function of collecting all of that microscopic dirt and debris, and gets rinsed off, leaving your hair squeaky clean. 

Switching from a detergent style, gel shampoo packaged in a plastic bottle, to a shampoo bar especially formulated for hair accomplishes many eco friendly tasks all at once.

You instantly begin participating in water conservation efforts. A solid shampoo bar for hair is usually packaged in an eco friendly packaging such as paper wrapping or a paperboard box. This eco-friendly packaging reduces your garbage that goes to the landfill.

Hand soap gels - What are they?

Hand soap gels are used to suspend and evenly distribute the "active" ingredients in personal care products. These active ingredients are usually potent in nature, so only a small amount is needed. These gels are vinyl polymers.

Take a moment to think about washing your hands with liquid vinyl. A plastic variety. It has no cleaning value and could possibly coat your hands. If it does coat your hands, even temporarily, you are possibly trapping in pathogens, such as germs and viruses. Wouldn't it be better to break them down and effectively kill them? A little common sense and critical thinking action will get your hands in great shape quickly. Consider changing your hand washing soap today. Select bar soapliquid soap, and waterless hand soap to fill all of your hand washing needs.

These gels are commonly called carbomer, carbopol, polymer, homopolymer, copolymer, etc. They are also a hydraulic fracturing fluid ingredient, used in the oil industry.  

Natural ingredients in skin care are plastic free.
