Why to use homemade milk soap?
1.Commercial Soaps Are Not Really Soaps
Milk Soap is the product of a chemical reaction that occurs when mixing oils and lye, along with milk such as donkey milk. The process is called “saponification,” in which the lye has been processed to help form the soap itself – there is no lye after this chemical reaction. There is coming also out of this process, as by product, glycerin.
On your next visit to the supermarket or the grocery store, take a look at the labels of the products on the soap aisle. Despite the lovely packaging, alluring colors and fresh, clean scents, you’ll notice that most of them don’t contain the word “soap” on their labels. You may find “beauty bars”, “moisturizing bars” or “body bars”, but not soap. That’s because these products are not actually soap. They’re detergents.
Detergent is a petroleum-based product, akin to gasoline. Detergents will leave the skin feeling very dry, or sometimes itchy. They contain synthetic lathering agents, artificial colors and fragrances and other harsh chemicals.
2.Commercial Soaps Contain Harmful Ingredients
Have you ever read the label of a commercial “soap”? Were you shocked at the amount of synthetic ingredients listed there? There are ingredients such as alkali and DEA, Triclosan, BHT other unpronounceable chemicals that have been demonstrated to be detrimental to healthy skin and even linked to cancer.
The problem is that even though companies are required to release information about the ingredients of the soaps they manufacture, one can never be too sure of all the chemicals listed (or not listed) on the labels.
When you make your own soap from scratch, you get to control the quality of the ingredients you use, and ultimately what goes in what stays out of your soap. You can choose only the most natural, gentle and soothing ingredients to your skin.
3.Homemade Milk Soap Allows You To Determine Health Benefits
The ingredients that we put in our homemade soap, will determine the benefits that you enjoy. Often, with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, the removal of harmful chemicals and possible irritants from the soaps used can greatly improve your overall skin health all by itself.
Besides the base vegetable oils that will react with lye and form the soap, we get creative and play with essential oils and other soothing such as lavender essential oil, healthy and fragrant additives – such as herbs, honey, oatmeal, paprika, coffee and cinnamon, each offering their own benefits to the skin. For instance, honey can be a great moisturizing agent, while certain herbs do wonders for oily skin.
Essential oils are not really oils, but very powerful and concentrated extracts from leaves, flowers, stems, barks, roots or other elements of a plant. For example lavender essential oil coms from the extract of lavender flower.
Anyone who has tried aromatherapy knows that essential oils are nothing like perfumes and synthetic fragrances. They are the true “essence” of a plant, and their use can provide valuable psychological and physical therapeutic benefits.
4.Glycerin, The Ultimate Moisturizer
Another benefit of homemade soaps is that you will retain full glycerin content.
As we mentioned before glycerin comes as by product of the saponification process.
This is a product of soap-making that is known to draw moisture from the air, and as a natural ingredient in soap, can moisturize the skin.
Most commercial soap companies will mine the glycerin from their soaps, and will sell it in other products for the higher cost items. This means that most soaps and detergents have been stripped of this key benefit (so that you can buy moisturizers separately from these same companies).
Think about that dry and cracked bar of soap that stood there in your bathroom for too long. That’s because all the glycerin has been stripped from it to make more expensive products such as moisturizing creams and lotions. If that’s what it looks like after a few weeks, just imagine what it will do to your skin!
When you use our soaps, all that moisturizing glycerin remains intact and you will see a huge improvement on how your skin looks and feels. Main line soap manufacturers care more about their bottom line and how to increase their profit margin than they care about the health benefits to your skin. We do really care about the health benefits to your skin! When we are making our soaps, we are making them first for ourselves and you as friendly customers. That’s why we have different objectives in mind, such as moisturizing the skin, preventing rashes, eczema flare-ups, oily skin and dry skin and more.
As for the soaps we make: beside your own use you can give them out – recommend also to your friends as gifts on special occasions, for example. Whatever you want to do with our soaps, there is something in handmade milk soap for everyone.
