But did you know that most cosmetics, gels and shampoos contain chemicals that harm our skin, and can actually be bad for our health?
And they also create other problems: they all come in plastic containers and even contain microplastic particles (exfoliants, etc.).
According to Greenpeace, 500 billion single-use plastic bottles are produced every year. In Spain, 50% of these end up in rubbish tips.
So, I wanted to do my bit. My goal is to help you look after your skin with natural soaps while also helping you reduce your plastic consumption.
They often contain parabens, sulphates and even toxic metals such as lead (!) These ingredients are the root of a whole host of skin problems: irritation, dryness and sensitivity.
If you use cosmetics, it’s because you want to feel more beautiful. And you probably haven’t given too much thought to the soap or shampoo you choose. Shower time is precious: for the energy boost and confidence it brings to start our day; or for de-stressing at the end of the day, leaving us clean and relaxed before bedtime.
Natural oils, some with macerated herbs (olive, coconut, hemp, Moringa, almonds, rosehip, shea or cocoa butter) and essential oils that not only nourish but also care for your skin. Every one of these ingredients is good for and protects your skin. And you’ll be able to identify each one without needing a degree in chemistry. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Your skin doesn’t care about brands or prices, it just knows what it needs. So, opting for natural soap is great, but choosing the one best suited to your skin is even better! Whether you have greasy, dry or sensitive skin, a one-size-fits-all approach to soap isn’t the solution.
