Why use handmade natural soap?
Did you know that the majority of the body washes and bar cleansers you buy at the store aren't actually soap at all? They are a blend of chemical detergents, stabilizers, lathering agents, and all kinds of other synthetic ingredients you can't pronounce. As a matter of fact, they can't even be labeled as soap because they are considered cosmetics by federal law! Many of the ingredients in these products, such as SLS, SLES, and others are incredibly irritating and drying to the skin, resulting in the need to purchase even more products to replace and restore the skin's natural oil layer and stop the itchy feeling you get after using them.
Soap, by definition, is the combination of fats and oils with lye to create a natural cleansing compound. During the soap making process, called saponification, the fats and oils consume all the lye, so none is left in the final product. This process also creates the natural by-product, glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture from the air. It is a natural moisturizer and helps leave the skin feeling hydrated. A well formulated natural soap should never feel harsh or irritating, and since there are no synthetic detergents used, you are less likely to experience itching and irritation after using it.
At Goose Ridge Soaps, we carefully formulate all our soap and shampoo bars to address the specific needs of your skin and hair. Our soaps provide gentle cleansing properties while preserving your skin's natural moisture, all without harsh synthetic detergents and other nasty chemicals. We also strive to reduce our impact on the environment by packaging our soaps and shampoo bars in minimal, compostable packaging and we use no palm oil of any kind in our products.
