The Top 56 Reasons Why You Should Only Use Natural Tallow Soaps

Soap is a daily necessity for personal hygiene, yet most of us don't give it much thought beyond its cleaning properties. However, the soap you choose can impact more than just your cleanliness. Many commercial soaps contain artificial chemicals that can be harmful to your skin and overall health. In this blog post, we will discuss why we shouldn't be using commercial soaps that contain artificial chemicals such as the 56 chemicals listed below that are found in many commercial soaps.

Artificial chemicals in commercial soaps can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and itchy. Chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, commonly found in commercial soaps, are known irritants that can damage the skin's protective barrier. This can lead to a variety of issues, such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

Many commercial soaps contain synthetic fragrances that can be harmful to your health. These fragrances are made up of a combination of chemicals that can cause allergies, respiratory problems, and skin irritation. Some fragrances have even been linked to cancer and reproductive problems. Natural soaps, on the other hand, use essential oils for fragrance, which are derived from plants and are natural and safe to use.

Commercial soaps often contain synthetic preservatives such as parabens. Parabens are used to extend the shelf life of soap, but they have been linked to hormonal imbalances and reproductive problems. They can also cause skin irritation and allergic reactions.

Much of what we put on our skin is ultimately absorbed into our body, so we definitely don't want to be lathering our skin with soaps that contain endocrine-disrupting or carcinogenic chemical ingredients.

Lastly, commercial soaps can have a negative impact on the environment. The chemicals used in these soaps can pollute waterways and harm aquatic life. When we use natural soaps, we are choosing a more eco-friendly option that is biodegradable and doesn't harm the environment.

In conclusion, commercial soaps that contain artificial chemicals can be harmful to our skin, health, and the environment. It is important to choose natural soaps made with organic ingredients that are free from artificial fragrances, preservatives, and chemicals. By doing so, we can protect our skin, health, and the environment. So next time you're shopping for soap, read the label and opt for a natural alternative like natural tallow soaps. Your skin and the planet will thank you!
