Most people actively try to minimize the number of toxins that enter their body. They eat good food, they drink purified water, they breathe purified air, and some even take added measures to detoxify their body. However, what many people don’t realize is that toxins can be absorbed through their skin. No time is this more important than when deciding what kind of soap to use. Given the industrious process used to produce many of the commonly known soaps, it’s not a surprise that most contain questionable chemicals, dyes, and fragrances… questionable substances that many of us would be better off avoiding. If you want to minimize the “casual toxins” you and your family are exposed to, consider using organic soap.
Reverie Farms Soap Bars treats skin to a total cleansing experience with their natural organic oils in their soap. Organic Oils are often thought of mostly for light, summery aromas, but I love using organic essential oils all year round. My use of the organic oils increases during the colder months as they are energizing and help to uplift the spirits. Especially since the winter blues is something that everyone suffers from to some degree. When using the right blends like their Winter is Coming Organic Soap made with essential oils you can even fight off the winter blues, “cabin fever” and depression.
What are the ingredients in their “Winter is Coming” Organic Soap
The high content of linoleic acid in safflower oil makes it ideal for boosting the quality and appearance of your skin. The linoleic acid can combine with sebum to unclog the pores and reduce blackheads, as well as acne, which is a result of sebum build-up under the skin. Furthermore, linoleic acid stimulates the regeneration of new skin cells that help clear up scars and other blemishes from the surface of the skin, leaving you looking younger and more attractive.
Coconut oil is an excellent massage oil that acts as an effective moisturizer on all types of skin, including dry skin. Unlike mineral oil, there is no chance of having any adverse side effects on the skin from the application of this oil. Therefore, it has been safely used for thousands of years for preventing dryness and flaking of skin. Coconut oil usage
It also helps in treating various skin problems, including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, and other skin infections. For this exact reason, coconut oil forms the base ingredient of various body care products like soaps, lotions, and creams that are used for skin care. It also delays the appearance of wrinkles and sagging of skin, which normally accompany aging. It helps with anti-aging because of its well-known antioxidant properties.
A jojoba oil moisturizes our skin and hair when our body stops doing it naturally. On the other hand, too much sebum, which happens during puberty or when hormone levels are high, can result in oily skin and acne. Jojoba oil removes sticky buildup or excess oil, too; it keeps your oil levels balanced. That makes it a strong natural treatment for eczema as well as a home remedy for acne, plus well suited for other dry-skin conditions.
Hemp oil regenerates and energizes the skin’s protective layer. Due to its high content of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin.
Why I like Reverie Farms Soaps
Many people have sensitive skin that doesn’t respond well to chemically laden soap. By using organic soap, you might be able to avoid, or at least reduce, the skin problems that are caused by irritating chemical ingredients. Organic soap contains ingredients that are not, and have not been produced with, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides. It’s invaluable for those who suffer from chemical sensitivities.
Even if you don’t break out in a full body rash, the chemicals used to make conventional soap will most assuredly dry your skin. Non-organic soaps usually do not contain glycerin (a moisturizing agent). Unfortunately, many people wait until itchy, dry skin is a problem before making the switch to natural soap.
It’s important to be educated about harmful ingredients prior to purchasing soap products. You want to refresh your skin, not harm it with toxic chemicals. I tell people all the time, if you can’t pronounce the words on the back of the label then you need to put the product down because it can’t be good if you can’t pronounce the words!
Harmful Commercial Soap Ingredients
Known as chemical preservatives, these harmful ingredients are found in majority of commercial soap and beauty products.
Known to cause cancer, this additive is often used as a ‘plasticizer’- a fancy word for an ingredient used to produce plastic.
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.
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.
Commercial soaps are packed with artificial dyes that have been known to cause health problems, cancers and illnesses in humans.
Healthy Natural Soap Ingredients
Despite common belief – oil is actually an important ingredient in soap, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin. Added oils like coconut oil, hemp oil or safflower oil to help to nourish and moisturize the skin.
Scented natural soaps are usually created with an essential oil to produce a natural, harm-free odor.
I shower daily, so it is important that I use a soap that will not harm or dry out the skin.
I like to use Reverie Farms Organic Soap Bars. All of their products are free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives or any synthetics. I have tried many body washes, but Reverie Farms Organic Soap Bars smelled great, kept my skin moist, and feeling clean.
I even tried their bath bombs and lip balm, which I loved. The bath bombs left my skin smooth and silky and the lip moisturizer helped my chapped lips by moisturizing them and making them look and feel smoothe and silky as well.
The products came quickly, packaged well and I recommend it to others. I will continue to use Reverie Farms Organic Soap Bars. I was highly impressed with their soap, bath bombs and lip balm.
