Here at EZ Natural, we create a number of ethical, eco-friendly handmade products, including our natural artisan soaps and sell them at affordable prices. Using handmade soap has many benefits over the commercially produced products that you will find in large stores. Keep reading to find out more.
Made from Natural Ingredients
Handmade soaps are made from natural, unprocessed ingredients such as vegetable oils and natural butters. These products are therefore full of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that help promote skin health. These ingredients have been shown to improve skin quality and can reduce itchiness and dryness in conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Mass-produced soap can contain a variety of preservatives and chemicals that have the opposite effect as they can dry out the skin, causing it to react badly. Soap found in supermarkets can actually age the skin and has ingredients and detergents in them that have been linked to allergic reactions and even an increased risk of cancer. At EZ Natural, our soap bars are made from organic, tried and tested ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil and virgin olive oil, all of which have great moisturizing effects on the skin.
Additionally, natural soaps retain the natural glycerin from the creation process. Glycerin is great for moisturization as it is a natural emollient and humectant that draws moisture from the air into the skin. Commercial soap manufacturers remove the glycerin from their products as it decreases the shelf life of the product slightly, but this means that they remove the moisturizing benefits.
Ethical Manufacturing Process
As you are purchasing handmade artisan soaps from a local business, you can be rest assured that they follow an ethical manufacturing process. At EZ Natural, all your soaps are made by the owner Yahaira within the USA. This is different from mass-produced soaps found in many stores that use underpaid workers in chemical factories that have terrible working conditions and test their products on animals.
