Why should you use Organic Soaps?
Before I answer why you should use organic soaps, let me ask, are you a regular user of antibacterial soaps? If yes, then you must have experienced its effect on the skin after every use. It is majorly because they are synthetic in nature and are made of petroleum-based lathering agents, harsh dyes and dangerous preservatives. On the other hand, organic soaps are simply better for your skin. They are filled with natural ingredients like glycerin, plant-derived base oils and essential oils.
It doesn’t surprise us when a lot of our customers say that their skin feels better after using our handmade soaps and that there are improvements in their acne and eczema. Organic and natural soaps are cruelty-free which makes them a perfect choice for sensitive skin. Most of the people use antibacterial soaps as they believe that it will keep them safe from any disease and germs. The reality may shock you, that antibacterial soaps are not actually what they are promoted to be.
You are in fact safer using our natural organic-based soaps and mild hot water to keep your hands safe and germ-free!
Why Should You Stop Using Antibacterial Soap Today Itself?
According to the FDA, there is not sufficient scientific evidence to display that normal retail antibacterial soaps are better than plain soap and water for the prevention of diseases. The advantages of antibacterial soap still have not been tested and tend to generate more issues than solutions.
In fact, the FDA identifies that antibacterial soaps include particular chemical ingredients, including triclosan and triclocarban, that can be unfavourable. These chemicals are not safe for daily use over a particular period of time, especially for children!
There is no proof that these chemical ingredients are safe, in fact, some producers have already started eliminating their products from stores that contain these chemicals.
Let’s talk about the benefits of Organic Soaps:
1. Most Soaps are Non-cruel
The best thing about using our organic soaps is that all the ingredients in them are cruelty-free. This implies that none of the ingredients or chemicals is tested on the animals. At Kaura, we make sure that the vendors provide cruelty-free ingredients. Not just this, we also ensure some of them are dermatologically tested and verified on human skin, making sure that it is appropriate for those with sensitive skin.
2. Very Smooth on Skin
Natural organic soaps are much softer and smoother on the skin, very suitable for those who have sensitive or soft skin. Most people love using the natural organic soaps that moisturize the skin and keep their hands soft. If you are someone who follows a skin care routine, you must switch to organic soaps as they are more gentle on skin.
3. No Chemicals or Pesticides
One of the best things about organic soaps is that they are not only healthy to consume but also to produce. They do not include any chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides which keeps you and your family safe. Every ingredient is natural, with each plant or herb utilized in its manufacturing being absolutely free from any pesticides or harmful chemicals. Hence it's a cycle of healthy production, consumption, and disposal because what goes around comes around.
4. Environmentally Safe
Natural organic soaps are environmentally safe. As we read above that no chemicals or pesticides are used in the production, they become way more biodegradable as compared to their antibacterial synthetic counterparts. They are easily disposable in nature which is a plus to the environment safety.
Organic Soaps are generally made by crafters in the local community or local market that helps in the circulation of money locally. This business supports multiple farmer families also. Any consumer can access the producer directly at a local store or a farm market. They thus act as a support for the economy.
6. It has Better Healing Properties
Organic soaps tend to have healing properties for skin conditions such as acne, rashes, eczema, and sunburn as they possess natural ingredients like essential oils, aloe vera, coconut oil, peppermint, turmeric, honey,etc..
7. Organic soaps have Glycerine
Antibacterial soaps do not keep the glycerin content as they are used for a lateral range of products. Major skincare products that are chemically prepared lack glycerine while on the other hand organic soaps have this natural humectant. Glycerine helps to maintain the moisture of the skin and so it is one of the major ingredients in most organic soaps. Two other natural ingredients that help with moisture maintenance are aloe and honey. Use of glycerine is one of the factors that contribute to the high cost of organic soaps.
8. It is rich in antioxidants
Antioxidants protect your skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells. They leave your skin looking younger and fresh. Kaura’s Organic soap ingredients are loaded with antioxidant properties. So if you use organic soaps they can help you slow down the skin’s ageing process and help in rejuvenating the skin.
9. No Harmful Chemical Antibacterial Toxins
Kaura products are free from harmful chemical antibacterial toxins like triclosan, paraben or any other petrochemicals. We understand that these demons are completely harmful to your skin as they disrupt the hormones and affect the reproductive system too. We use natural antibacterials like tea tree, rosemary, peppermint, lavender essential oils. These do not have any adverse effects. These essential oils also add up to the aroma and provide aromatherapy in addition to cleansing the skin.
10. Easy to customize
Organic soaps are usually made in small batches and thus can be customised as per the client’s requirements. Consumers also get a lot of variety in ingredients, aroma, texture, colour shape and size. At Kaura, we invented Unicorn whipped soap with all organic ingredients. We also offer customised soaps in bulk orders.
11. Maintain PH level
The PH level of organic soaps by Kaura is almost 5.5, which means that they are perfectly balanced and gentle on all skin types. Extra virgin coconut oil is one of the top ingredients that not only provides moisture to the skin but also maintains the ph level of your skin.
12. No Preservatives
Antibacterial soaps have added preservatives that increase the shelf life of the soaps, however, they are harsh and may cause irritation on the skin. On the other hand, Organic soaps have a limited shelf life because it's all-natural without any additional preservatives.
Natural organic soaps are more suitable for your skin. Kaura recommends you switching to organic soaps right away. You can experience the difference with our wide range of organic handmade soaps.
