Benefits of Organic Handmade Soaps

Top Handmade soaps to shop for a luxurious bathing routine


After a long tiring day, unwinding with a blissful bath is something a lot of us look forward to. It helps us destress and in a lot of ways is a form of self-love and self-care. While there are countless options of soaps, cleansers, and shower gels to choose from – going natural and organic by using handmade soaps is the way to go!

Soaps are an essential part of our bath routine and, with its plethora of benefits – choosing the right one is important. You may think, “it’s just a soap, right?” WRONG. The decision of your choice of soap straightforwardly affects your skin. Most soaps are primarily divided into:

  • Natural or Handmade Soaps
  • Commercial Soaps

What are handmade soaps?

Handmade soaps are created with organic natural products that are good for your skin. They are made of vegetable oils and butters that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that are essential for healthy skin.

Difference between handmade & commercial soaps

Though they may look similar, commercial soaps are far different as they are generally produced on a large scale with the use of harsh chemicals, synthetic ingredients, and cheap fragrances which can irritate your skin.

Are Handmade/Natural Soaps better than Commercial Soaps?

The short answer is YES!

Handmade soaps are far better than commercial ones. Natural soaps are created with organic cold-pressed natural oils and plant-based ingredients which are mild and gentle on the skin. They are handcrafted by artisans and are specifically customized for different skin types and skin concerns.  On the other hand, commercial soaps are produced in bulk in a factory and are filled with chemicals and preservatives that damage your skin and health in the long run. As an informed consumer, the choice is ultimately yours to make, so choose wisely.
