FAQ: Its just soap, why bother with natural?

faq1

Do we eat just about anything being sold in the market? I bet all of us look at the way the food is prepared, the ingredients, hygiene levels before ordering food.  And if its junk food, we steer away quickly.

What we put on our skin requires just as much thought. Skin is the largest organ of our body and to take care of it requires that we keep it clean, balanced and let it breath.

Commercial soaps are like junk food. They have chemicals, fillers and colors added just to make the soap look good, not because those ingredients are good for our skin. These soaps are stripped off the natural glycerin even though it’s one of the best things for skin. This makes the skin dry and scratchy. The same glycerin is then sold back to us to treat the dry skin caused by such harsh soaps.

Swarnkrita Natural soaps have all ingredients chosen for their benefit to the skin, not just to beautify the soap. Natural products like glycerin remain in the soap to benefit the user. Instead of soaps made from synthetic chemicals , I prefer the ones made from natural ingredients.

Soap is even better than makeup, it makes the skin glow from the inside.

Shhh…Vetiver is sleeping :-)

Now these beauties are off to sleep for four weeks so that they transform into mild and soothing bars of awesome soap when they wake up 🙂

Weekend fun… Packing Soap :-)

Weekends are usually the time when I get to work on Soap batches. Work like researching some new essential oil combination or trying a new recipe, designing packaging etc all get my attention during the weekends. Spent the morning designing and packing the new batch of unscented coffee soap. It has turned out quite good I think, how do you like it?

Unscented soaps are great for you if you find the factory made soaps chemical scents overpowering.

Coffee makes the soap so plush and mild on the skin.

Guess what!!!

Our Skin in not neutral, unlike what the big soap companies would have us believe. It is actually a bit acidic. Essential requirement to fight all the germs and micro organisms floating around. Ph-neutral soaps have chemicals added to make it so, and this disturbs the acidic balance of our skin. Use natural soaps and let the skin show its magic.
