15 Reasons Why Natural Handmade Soaps Are Better Than Commercial Soaps

15 Reasons Why Natural Handmade Soaps Are Better Than Commercial Soaps

When it comes to choosing the right soap for your skin, the options can be overwhelming. However, there is one clear choice that stands out among the rest - natural handmade soaps. These thoughtfully handmade soaps offer many benefits that commercial soaps simply can't match. Here are 15 reasons why natural handmade soaps are better than their commercial counterparts:

1. Chemical-Free Formulation

Natural handmade soaps are free from harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients that can irritate the skin. Instead, they are made with pure, natural ingredients that nourish and cleanse the skin gently.

2. Skin-Loving Ingredients

From moisturizing olive oil to soothing lavender essential oil, natural handmade soaps are packed with skin-loving ingredients that promote healthy skin.

3. No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)

SLS is a detergent and is also a foaming agent, which is popular in many commercial hand washes and body washes. Research has found that SLS can irritate the skin and that warm water makes the irritation worse. Thus, natural handmade soaps do not use any SLS and are made using moisturising ingredients instead.

4. Gentle on Sensitive Skin

The gentle, natural ingredients in handmade soaps make them ideal for those with sensitive skin or skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis.

5. Contains Glycerin

Natural handmade soaps contain glycerin naturally in the soapmaking process. And not a lot of soaps in the market contain much glycerin. Lack of glycerin might result in drier skin after using these soaps. Handmade soaps are known for their glycerin content, and after using these soaps you can feel more moisturized. As glycerin can be an expensive raw material commercial soaps have glycerin removed, and then add chemical additives to replace it.

6. No Perfumes or Synthetic Fragrances

Brands like Tsuki Soap and others committed to natural soaps do not use perfumes or synthetic fragrances. We are committed to natural, mild soaps and these perfumes and fragrances can cause irritation and itching in many people. We also cater to those with scent sensitivity as it can cause sneezing and headaches in some people too. We have unscented options for our bar soaps and liquid soaps at Tsuki Soap too.

7. Contains Natural MoisturisingOils

Handmade natural soaps contain natural oils, these oils are moisturising and help keep your skin moisturised and hydrated. Handmade natural soaps that seem to get soft are because the amount of moisturising oils are higher, which helps keep your skin soft and moisturised. The time for handmade natural soap to dry and be ready for sale is very long for the same reason. On the other hand, commercial soaps tend to use more hard oils that are less moisturising.

At Tsuki Soap, the soft and moisturising oils used in our soaps are very high, mainly using Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Rice Bran Oil and Castor Oil that are very moisturising.

8. Handcrafted with Care

Each bar and bottle of natural handmade soap is carefully made by hand, ensuring attention to detail and quality in every batch. We make every batch by hand here at Tsuki Soap and are committed to ensuring high quality products every time.

9. Environmentally Friendly

Natural handmade soap bars use less packaging and are often made with sustainable and eco-friendly, making them a better choice for the environment. At Tsuki Soap, our bar soaps are packed minimally in biodegradable paper boxes. Additionally, we offer refill packs for our liquid castile soaps so that we can reduce, and reuse plastic bottles.

10. Aromatherapy Benefits

The essential oils used in natural handmade soaps offer aromatherapy benefits that can uplift your mood and enhance your daily bathing experience.

11. No Animal Testing

Most natural handmade soap makers are committed to cruelty-free practices, ensuring that their products are never tested on animals. Same here at Tsuki Soap!

12. Vegan or Vegetarian

Most natural handmade soaps are made using plant based oils and this allows the soaps to be vegan or vegetarian. At Tsuki Soap, our Liquid Castile Soaps are 100% vegan as we use no animal products at all. Our Natural Bar Soaps are 100% vegetarian, as the base oils are 100% plant based but have added honey for extra moisturising properties, which is considered vegetarian.

13. Personal Connection

When you purchase natural handmade soaps, you are supporting a small business owner and forming a personal connection with the maker behind the product. Our products are all handmade one by one by our founder and soapmaker Judith.

14. Support Small Businesses

By choosing to shop locally, buying our natural handmade soaps, you are supporting our small businesses and the maker who has put their heart and soul into creating each bar and bottle of soap for you.

15. Overall Wellness Benefits

Using natural handmade soaps is not just about cleansing your skin - it's about nourishing your body, mind, and soul with the purest ingredients nature has to offer.
