Natural soap, why use it?
Why stop using a bottle of liquid soap and switch to a bar of natural soap? Here you can read five kick ass reasons why that ‘old-fashioned’ bar of soap isn’t so bad after all.
1. Better for your skin
Many bottled shower gels and shampoos are full of chemicals and preservatives. These break down the natural oils in your skin and dry out your skin. Nature Bar’s soap and shampoo bars contain rich oils such as organic shea butter and solo natural ingredients, which harness the power of nature. For example, the Orange & Calendula soap contains a healthy dose of calendula. This age-old wonder plant is especially known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
2. Better for nature
Multiple soap brands including Nature Bar are committed to preserving nature and ecosystems threatened by the mass production of cosmetics containing many chemical additives. I also choose to make only palm oil-free soap, because of the impact on the environment. Palm oil has been linked to large-scale deforestation. Another advantage? Bars of soap are animal friendly.
3. No plastic
According to the Plastic Soup Foundation, the world’s population consumes one million plastic bottles per minute. Yes, exactly: per minute. Every minute a garbage truck of plastic waste is dumped into the ocean. If we continue like this, the ocean will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. Imagine that you can do something about this. By washing your body and hair with Nature Bar, you save up to 21 plastic bottles per year. And you actively contribute to a cleaner world. In addition, Nature Bars are of course also free of micro plastics.
4. You don’t pay for water
That may sound crazy, but did you know that most shampoos and shower gels consist of 80% water? So why not add your own water. With a block of natural soap, the main ingredient is skin caring oils. Soap is super concentrated and therefore lasts on average 2-3 times as long as your shower gel and shampoo bottle. In addition, it also saves a lot of CO2 emissions, a truck simply fits a lot more soap and shampoo bars than bottles filled with 80% water.
Let’s pause for a moment, for the price of two lattes, you’re enjoying something that’s good for your skin and nature. Every day, for weeks. How many things in your life can you say the same about?
5. Soap is perfect for traveling
When you go on holiday it is always a problem to stick to the maximum amount of liquid. Or worse that upon arrival you discover that your shampoo bottle has started to leak on your favorite items of clothing. By replacing your shower gel for a bar of soap, you kill two birds with one stone. Natural soap not only gently cleanses your skin, but also nourishes it, so you can often leave the body lotion at home. it also lasts way longer.
