Yes, you can certainly go to your local grocer/drug store, etc., and buy cheaper soap. So what's the big deal with this fancy-schmancy, Hand Crafted brouhaha?
Store-Bought vs. Hand Crafted
Did you know that most of the soaps for sale in commercial environments are actually detergents? They don't meet the FDAs definition for soap, so they are marketed as “cleansing bars” or “beauty bars.”
Detergents excel at removing oils- which is OK from a sales perspective, but may not jive with how you want to care for your skin.
It's the Glycerin, Baby
Hand Crafted soaps contain Glycerin, a natural skin softener that attracts water from ambient air. This helps maintain your skin's moisture after use.
In Hand Crafted soap, fats/oils blend with sodium hydroxide (lye) during the saponification process, while the natural glycerin maintains its integrity.
You Deserve a Little 'Me Time'
We're ALL moving at a million mph. Shifting between parent, spouse, worker bee, and/or FurParent, I'm happy if I've put underwear on BEFORE my jeans.
We can ALL use a little more 'Me Time.' And whether you love long soaks or have to speed through the shower in the AM, both are chances to take just a wee moment to pamper yourself.
