Learn Why Natural Soap is Better from ashbury BLOOM!
In recent years, there has been a growing movement towards embracing natural and organic products in various aspects of our lives. One such area is perianal care, specifically when it comes to soap. While commercial soaps dominate the market, natural soaps have gained popularity due to their numerous benefits. So why is natural soap better for your body?
1. Natural Soap is Gentle on the Skin
One of the most significant advantages of natural soap is its gentle and nourishing properties. Unlike mass-produced commercial soaps, which often contain harsh chemical and synthetic additives, natural soaps are made from plant-based ingredients such as essential oils herbs and botanical extracts. These ingredients are known for their soothing and moisturizing properties making natural soap ideal for sensitive skin. Natural soaps are also typically free from artificial fragrances and dyes reducing the risk of skin irritation and allergies. For example, ashbury BLOOM’s handmade and all-natural Sensitive Soap was formulated with all these in mind. Made with all-natural ingredients including olive oil infused in calendula and cured for 6 weeks is what makes our soap perfect for sensitive and troubled skin.
Conventional soaps often contain a cocktail of chemicals such as sulphates, parabens, phthalates, and artificial preservatives. These ingredients can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, irritation, and even long-term damage. Natural soaps, on the other hand, are made using simple, organic ingredients that are safe for both your skin and overall health. Our way of helping you and your family transition to a healthier lifestyle is by handcrafting soaps that are made with skin-loving ingredients that can be found in your kitchen, that smell, good look good and are effective. Like our Mint Mocha Soap which is made with brewed coffee and coffee grinds that can be found in most kitchens. With natural soap, you can cleanse your skin without worrying about exposure to harmful chemicals.
3. Environmental Sustainability
The production and disposal of commercial soaps can have a negative impact on the environment. Many commercial soaps contain chemicals that are harmful to aquatic life when they enter waterways. Moreover, manufacturing processes often involve excessive energy consumption and the use of synthetic ingredients derived from non-renewable resources. In contrast, natural soaps are typically crafted using sustainable practices and biodegradable ingredients. They are usually packaged in minimal, eco-friendly packaging, reducing plastic waste and promoting a greener lifestyle. We kept this in mind when we added our accessories to our natural line of products that are plastic-free and biodegradable. Such as our biodegradable Toothbrush, Exfoliating Body Brush, Dish Scrubber Brush and Soap Dish
4. Natural Soap is Handcrafted with Care
Natural soaps are often handmade in small batches, allowing for greater attention to detail and quality control. Artisan soap makers take pride in their craft, ensuring that each bar is meticulously created and unique. We often employ traditional soap-making methods, such as the cold process soap method, which preserve the beneficial properties of the ingredients. The result is a high-quality soap that provides a luxurious and indulgent bathing experience such as our Pink Clay Soap made with Kaolin Clay which is rich in minerals and magnesium.
5. Support for Local and Independent Businesses
By choosing natural soap, you are not only taking care of your skin but also supporting local and independent businesses. Many natural soap makers operate on a small scale, often sourcing ingredients locally and prioritizing ethical practices. Some of our ingredients are sourced from the herbs we grow, local farmers and suppliers. When you purchase natural soap, you are contributing to the growth of these businesses, fostering a sense of community, and encouraging sustainable entrepreneurship. We also work with several local & national retailers to provide natural soap products and more to customers across Canada, the United States, and beyond!
