Until the beginning of the last century, most soaps were made at home using fats from cooking - animal fats - as these were readily available. With the outbreak of World War I a shortage of fats now needed for the production of armaments meant an alternative was needed. Petroleum distillates were used to make these first synthetic soaps called detergents.



The soaps you buy at the shop usually are detergent soaps containing foaming agents known as sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS - moderate acute health hazard forcomplexion and interest, and respiratory tract irritation)  natural soap Canada  , synthetic perfumes and other chemicals such as propylene and butylene glycols and parabens (linked to cancer). These soaps also have natural glycerine deleted, purified and amassedfor sale and purified as a valuable by-product.



Now oils are extracted from green veggies, various nuts and grain which are chemically superior and of a higher quality. Handmade soaps combine animal or vegetable lye, shrub, fats and drinking water concentrated amounts and natural skin oils. It retains its natural glycerine, one of the best skin softeners.Mass produced soap companies take the glycerin out of their product and use it as a byproduct. It is then replaced with alcohol. The alcohol is what makes your skin feel really tight after you've used their soap. Hand made soaps leave the glycerin in, and allows it to be a naturally occurring emollient. Thus is moisturizing and helps to leave your skin soft.



Try leaving a bar of soap bought from the shop on the shower shelf for a couple of weeks and see the result - what you get is a dry cracked bar of soap. Try the same with natural handmade soap - the bar will never crack or dry out as it retains its emollient properties. Versus drying out out, you will see that the cleansing soap certainly appeals to wet condition with it.



Most often you will find that handmade soaps are specifically made to cater for individual skin types. When handmade soap is made, it is often made in smaller batches (30-50 soaps per batch) as opposed to other commercial soaps which are made in large batches (2000 soaps per batch). Creating a large wide variety of cleansers, only because hand crafted batches are scaled-down they are often adjusted and modified. Unfortunately this often increases the price of each soap.



Handmade soaps will often contain more nutrious and beneficial ingredients than commercial soaps. The soaps made by Juddarnje contain natural products such asclays and bee honey, fruit nectars, plant nectars, natural oils such as avocado, macadamia, almond and others.



Following, time you may be figuring out whether to select commercial or hand-crafted, always remember commercialized is usually more cost effective BUT hand made will probably be a lot more great for the epidermis.
