I started making soap with essential oils. Essential oils smell nice and there are the benefits of the particular essential oil. I love homemade soap as it provides me with the benefit of essential oil and doesn't dry my skin like the store-bought soap. I've been selling my soaps to my friends and they are my repeat customers.
Most people would be asking the difference in using commercialized soap and homemade soap. Store-bought soap tends to dry and irritate skin as it has an abundant of chemicals and detergents. Meanwhile homemade soap is very well tolerated by sensitive and problem-prone skin. The reason is simple as homemade soap consists of base oils, butters, lye, and additives that are usually from a natural source. Almost any natural additive can be added to homemade soap to treat various skin conditions and complaints while reducing unnecessary chemical intake, resulting in beautiful skin.
True soap is very basic. It consists of oils, lye, and water. Glycerine is the primary component in real soap that traps moisture. Glycerin is created during the process of making handmade soap, also called saponification. Most commercial manufacturers eliminate glycerine so as to use it in skin creams and lotions. Other chemicals are then added to replace the removed glycerin. What we end up buying is a bar of chemicals that irritate and disrupt the skin's natural balance.
Natural homemade soap is not bubbly like the commercial soap. It is creamy and lathery as it cleans your body while retaining your skin moist. Glycerin, a natural humectant that occurs naturally during the saponification process is retained in the finished product. It helps retain moisture in the skin. There are lots of glycerin in handmade soap which makes them naturally hydrating.
Homemade soap is also a lovely choice for gifting as they can also be beautiful. If you are interested, please visit my shopee store at https://shopee.com.my/syairahsyassakii
