DO YOU KNOW WHAT’S IN YOUR SOAP??
COMMON INGREDIENTS IN STORE BOUGHT SOAP
- Sodium Lauryl Isethionate: A synthetic detergent; may be a hazard to your health if inhaled, ingested, or if absorbed by the skin. (Why then is it in store bought soap?)
- Sodium Tallowate or Palmitate: derived from animal fat. (Usually cows, and are the cows hormone and antibiotic free?)
- Sodium Stearate: strips oil from skin.
- Sodium Cocoate and/or Sodium Palm Kernelate: strips oil from skin.
- Sodium Isethionate: can irritate eyes.
- Cocamidopropyl Betaine: strips oil from skin.
- Tetrasodium EDTA and Letrasodium Etidronate: preservatives and chelating agents which can irritate skin conditions especially eczema.
- Maltol: a flavor enhancer that is used to add sweetness to foods.
- Titanium Dioxide: Sunscreen. (Is this necessary in soap?)
10 Glcerol/Glycerine: removed during processing and then must be put back in.
THESE CHEMICAL AGENTS CAN DRY OUT YOUR SKIN. THEN YOU NEED TO APPLY MOISTURIZERS! COINCIDENTALLY, IT'S THE SAME COMPANIES THAT MANUFACTURE THE SOAPS THAT MAKE MANY OF THE MOISTURIZERS!
