Important for good health

It is very interesting to know that initially the first soap was developed almost 5000 years ago in Egypt, however, it was only in the 19th century that it gradually became a well-known product. People started using these in-home all over the world. In the present times, we do tend to take soap as well as many same kinds of products for granted.

And for good Hygiene too

Maintaining good hand hygiene is extremely important for taking good care of our health and for fighting against any diseases. We use our hands for a wide variety of tasks all day round and when we touch different things we may involuntarily spread or taken on any germs too. On rubbing our nose with the same hand, those germs can also get inside the mucous membranes, thus making us fall sick.

This is the very reason people started using strong disinfectants and antibacterial products for keeping the germs away from oneself.  However, the medical experts don’t really agree for using very strong disinfectants. A lot of research has proved that there may be an adverse effect which results in making the bacteria a lot more resistant with time.

Environmentally friendly Ingredients

Handmade soaps are mainly from fats, oils and lye (which is generally consumed during the process of saponification). This comes with glycerin and also may have different fragrances added to it. Sometime Color or decorations such as flowers may also be added. The whole process of making soap is very straightforward – all the ingredients are blended together in a suitable vessel, and later these are poured in moulds where it solidifies into the desired shape.

The Commercially available soaps often comprise many ingredients which are considered to be very poor for the environment and all of this contributes to eutrophication. Which means that the territory in which all the residues of the soap are flushed directly in the drain and quite a lot is released in the environment, therefore one should be extremely careful while choosing an eco-friendly option which is very critical for all those as it would impact the ecological footprint in a big way. Your skin will also like to thank you as you would be avoiding clogging the pores of your skin with all the various types of chemical substances.
