Advantages of handmade soaps
Soap is a salt transformed from fats, oils and a base (sodium or potassium hydroxide) through a chemical reaction known as "saponification". Soap cleans skin or fabric by making the surface wet and attracting the dirt away from the object.
Handmade soaps retain 100% of the soap and glycerin mix created by the saponification process using natural ingredients. Many commercial soaps use synthetic ingredients and most have removed the glycerin for use in other products. Glycerin is a humectant that absorbs ambient waterFor more information, please open the linked brochure "Why handcrafted soap" produced by the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild.
Exfoliation is important in removing dry skin cells during cleaning. After exfoliation, lotion should be applied to seal in moisture. Applying moisture without exfoliating will not be as effective in keeping you "comfortable in your skin".
Nature Bar solid lotion bars are the perfect companion to our soaps to provide a complete skin care regimen.
