As an unavoidable item in bathrooms and in bathing rituals- the role of the good old soap in our lives cannot be overestimated.
That said, even as the soap remained permanent in our bathrooms, the journey of cleansing itself has undergone a complete metamorphosis moving from naturals to chemicals and from bathing powders to bath bars and gels. Off late there is a new found love for everything natural, driven as much by the concern for the self, as much as the concern for the nature.
Modern studies have shown that significant amounts of toxins are absorbed through the human skin just as they are absorbed through the gut. If you’re looking to minimize the skin exposure to chemicals, it will be worth considering organic and natural soaps, among the many other interventions. Besides aiding in just cleansing, natural soaps nourish, moisturize and protect your skin.
Let’s not be fooled, true natural options are far and few, and most often prohibitively expensive. So, wait no more! grab a notepad and jot down the list of fully natural soap bars you could add to your shopping cart to stay healthy and well nourished.

TIPS TO CHOOSE THE BEST ORGANIC SOAP
Here are some tips to keep in mind before purchasing a natural or organic soap:
- Always check the ingredients list. Make sure that soap is free from chemicals and synthetic fragrances.
- Consider your skin type before purchasing an organic soap. Different skin types may require different ingredients, so choose a soap that caters to your specific skin needs.
- While organic soaps may be more expensive than commercial soaps, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. High-quality organic soaps are made with premium ingredients, and their production processes are more labour-intensive, which can result in a slightly higher price. But the nutritive value and natural glycerine content in natural organic soaps (usually >20%) far off-set the price you pay for it.
