High-quality information and a professionally edited book Why Would You Want to Make Your Own Soap? Most soap available in stores today are not really soaps at all, but, they are detergents. Detergents are a petroleum based product, like gasoline and kerosene. Detergents tend to leave your skin feeling dry, itchy and tight. Alkali, the most common irritant in soap, is commonly blamed for this effect. Other ingredients in mass-marketed soap have been proven harmful to human health and can cause severe skin irritations in many people. These include ingredients such as DEA, Isopropyl Alcohol, BHT and Triclosan. The most common ingredient in conventional bar soaps is sodium tallowate. Some very famous brands of soaps use chemicals which are of an inferior quality and could prove harmful for a person's skin. Here's a look at some of the benefits and reasons for using handmade, chemical free soaps: *Handmade Soaps are generally made using cold process method which lets the ingredients take their own time to interact with each other in as natural way as possible. *Handmade Soap has a major advantage in that glycerine is not removed from the soap and therefore has a powerful moisturizing effect. *Glycerin soap is especially good for sensitive, delicate skin and for children. *Because it is a high quality by-product in the soap making process, a number of commercial soap manufacturers extract the glycerin and sell it as a by-product to be used in high priced beauty products e.g. lotions and skin creams. *Unlike conventional soap, homemade soap may even contain healing properties due to the lack of chemicals in the ingredients. *People who suffer from skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can find relief by switching to an all-natural and chemical free handmade soap. "Soap Making for Beginners" contains a number of quick and easy recipes including: *Tea Tree Oil Soap *Shea Butter Marvel Soap *Soothing Ginger Soap *Banana Cream Smoothie Soap *Deluxe Olive Castile Soap *Goats Milk and Lavender Soap *Oat and Honey Soap *And much, much more!
