Natural soap VS commercial soap
While eating right is a key component, many people don’t realize that cleansing the entire body begins on the outside – with your skin.
The human body’s largest and only exterior organ, your skin comes into contact with pollutants on the daily basis.
On top of the dirt and bacteria it touches, skin also absorbs any chemicals in the soaps you use to wash yourself.
Maybe commercial soaps aren’t so clean after all?
Let’s find out in our showdown of natural soap vs. commercial soap.
It’s very important to be educated everyone about harmful ingredients prior to purchasing soap products.
You want to refresh your skin, not pollute it with chemicals isn’t it?
If you can’t pronounce the words on the back of the label – put the product down!
Harmful Commercial Soap Ingredients
Almost always the commercial soap, for economical and competitive reasons contains
Parabens: otherwise known as chemical preservatives, these harmful ingredients are found in majority of commercial soap and beauty products.
Phthalates: known to cause cancer, this additive is often used as a ‘plasticizer’- a fancy word for an ingredient used to produce plastic.
Petrochemicals: made from petroleum, these chemicals should be considered unsafe for humans because little is known about the long-term effects they have on our health.
Synthetic Perfume: artificial perfume scents, although they smell nice, are linked to allergies and hormonal issues. As well, synthetic ingredients such as perfume are likely to cause skin conditions and to aggravate existing issues such as acne.
Healthy Natural Soap Ingredients
Healthy Oils: despite common belief – oil is actually an important ingredient in our donkey milk soaps, especially if you have oily or acne prone skin. Added oils like coconut oil, Castor oil, palm oil or olive oil help to nourish and moisturize skin and bring it back to its natural PH levels.
Essential Oils: scented natural soaps are usually created with an essential oil like our lavender Donkey milk soap, to produce a natural, harm-free odor.
Honey, Oatmeal Cinnamon, curcuma, paprika, and coffee: Our Donkey milk natural soaps are made with organic, biodegradable ingredients that are harvested, produced, or sourced in a safe and conscious way. Unlike chemical ingredients, a consumer can easily understand what these ingredients are and how their body will react to them.
How soap is made?
Soap makers can be anyone from multi-national corporations, to weekend DIY fanatics like we are too!!. The way they each produce soap, and the environments they make them in, can drastically affect both the quality and benefits of the soap. We produce our soaps by hand. All our Donkey milk soaps are pure natural handcrafted Donkey milk soaps.
Our products are all natural handmade soaps for Facial care, Body care and Hair care.
Our commitment is to formulate and produce products that are as natural as possible:

Great for all skin types, sensitive skin, dry skin, including people that have eczema or psoriasis.
Commercial Soap Production
Mass produced: most commercial soaps are produced by large multinational companies, with factories all over the globe. This mass-production results in copious amounts of environmental waste and degradation as well as poor living conditions for thousands of people worldwide.
Factory-Made: commercial soaps are batch made by machines in large factories – in less than ideal conditions. Most consumers remain oblivious to the working conditions and cleanliness of the factories their soap is made in.
Natural Soap Production
Locally Produced: natural Donkey milk soaps are always locally produced with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. These local soap companies benefit small communities financially and they also have a very minimal carbon footprint.
Hand-Made: hand-made, natural and organic Donkey milk soaps like El Greco handmade natural soaps, are rising in popularity due to the fact that it’s enjoyable to make, and beneficial to use. When buying handmade, consumers have the opportunity to meet the person who produced their soap and to educate themselves on the ingredients.
Made with Care: if a soap company is only interested in making money, they usually won’t commit themselves to natural soap-making due to higher production costs for mass-producing. For this reason, most natural soap lines are consciously created by people who are passionate about health and the environment like we do too!!!
