Benefits of Organic Soap

It should come as no surprise that the majority of soaps that are sold in stores contain a large amount of chemicals that most of us have never even heard of. If you are concerned about the toxins that your family uses in your home, then you might want to consider switching to organic soap as a healthier alternative.

By using organic soap, you can potentially avoid, or at least reduce, many common skin problems. Organic soap contains ingredients that have been produced without using herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides.

Commercial soaps are hard on regular skin, and worse if you have sensitive skin. The chemicals used to make and enhance their product and dry and damage skin. Regular soaps will remove naturally present glycerin and instead include harsh substances like dyes, synthetic fragrances and preservatives. Is it any wonder that some people are medically required to switch to natural soaps? Some of the possible skin conditions that may cause you to switch to natural soaps include, chronically dry skin, allergic reactions after a bath or an itch that scratching doesn't seem to relieve.

Shopping for Organic Soap Products

You may have to do a little research to find the product suitable for you and your family. It's definitely worth the effort. And, at the end of this article are a few recommendations from Dr. Group. When you're shopping for your soaps, review labels closely, for the organic and natural ingredients.

Common organic ingredients you may find in organic soap include the following:

  • Organic Aloe
  • Organic Oats
  • Organic Peppermint
  • Organic Prickly Pear Cactus

Common natural ingredients you may find in organic soap include the following:

  • Sea Salt
  • Essential Oils
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Sunflower Petals
  • Wild Horsemint
  • Wild Yucca Root
  • Moroccan Red Clay
  • Unrefined African Shea Butter

I have to tell you, when you're going green by purchasing organic soap and other products for your family, you are also protecting the environment. Organic ingredients are traditionally grown without the use of chemicals, including pesticides that pollute our air, run into our water supplies, and become embedded in our soil. Instead, organic ingredients are harvested in a way that is actually beneficial to our entire ecosystem.¹

The vast majority of organic companies are now biodynamic, which is a holistic approach to coexisting with our environment. Biodynamic companies use our natural resources, and at the same time, do it respecting the needs of the living systems from which they draw.²

Organic producers are very careful not to disturb their surrounding natural resources, which is truly important for all of us. While this does result in higher product costs for organic soap, as well as other all natural products, you are only doing yourself, as well as our world, a great service by electing to support the efforts of organic companies.
