What Is Natural Soap?
Conventional soaps typically contain chemical ingredients called surfactants. These chemicals are what allows soap to mix with oils for cleansing purposes and to create a lather. In natural soaps, chemical surfactants are usually replaced with ingredients derived from plants and other natural substances. Castile soap is one example that is made out of olive oil. Additionally, natural soaps are often free of dyes, chemical preservatives and artificial fragrances. You can read the product descriptions to find out exactly what's inside the natural soaps featured in this selection.
Some natural soaps are also organic. To be labeled as organic, soaps must be evaluated by a third-party organization or agency and receive certification. Each certifying body has its own definition of what organic means. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is one of the main certifying bodies in the United States. To be USDA certified as organic, a product must be made primarily out of ingredients that are produced using eco-friendly farming practices. Some products are made with organic ingredients but have not received certification. The product descriptions will tell you more about what certifications organic products have received.
Zero Waste Soap
As with conventional soap, natural soap is available in different forms. Bar soaps are solid blocks that you lather up with water. These products reduce waste and are convenient to take with you when you travel. Liquid soaps are dispensed out of bottles. Some people find them easier or more pleasant to use.
Natural Soap Options
Once you have decided what type of natural and organic soap you prefer, you can compare the other features of the products to decide which is right for you. Products often come in different scents, so you can choose one that you will find pleasing. Some natural and organic soaps offer benefits for specific types. For example, you can find products that hydrate dry skin and options that clarify oily skin.
