Using all natural bath and body product has nothing but pros and one con.
These products are made from only all-natural ingredients. This is the biggest benefit, in that the body is not being subjected to harmful chemicals. Additionally, natural bath and body can be found everywhere especially in boutiques. They are very affordable and work wonderfully.
All-natural products use oatmeal, honey, coconut, lemons, limes, many extracts, other fruit and vegetables and oils. Most of these things you can buy in our local grocery store. In addition, there are no chemicals added to these products. (The Con) If you happen to be allergic to any product, you can always take that product out and use something else. Typically, natural products retain the nutrients found in these ingredients because additional agents used to include oil, soap, and mineral water.
When using these products you find that the products softer and lighter without leave a film as most products do. Furthermore, these products leave a nice clean scent. Whereas chemically treated products are harsh to the skin. Although they may leave a nice soft scent but, at what cost?
Here is a blog I run across that will spell out a great many things for many people. http://livelighter.org/dangerous-ingredients-in-bath-body-products/
- Soap forms through saponification, a reaction between fat and an alkaline solution. Years ago, people simply mixed ash and grease together. Later, soap makers replaced the ash with potassium hydroxide, a form of lye created through leaching wood ash. Today’s soap manufacturers use either potassium hydroxide or another type of lye called sodium hydroxide. The type of lye determines the consistency of the soap. Potassium hydroxide creates soft soaps while sodium hydroxide yields hard soaps.
- Commercial soap often contains many other ingredients besides fat and lye. Clarifying agents, emollients, thickeners, dyes, perfumes, texture enhancers, detergents and water softeners are all common additions to soap. Manufacturers add sorbitol to glycerin soaps to make clear bars. They add titanium dioxide to make their bars opaque. Pentasodium pentetate, tetrasodium etidronate and tetrasodium EDTA all function as water softeners, help protect the dyes and perfumes from the effects of metal ions and help prevent soap scum.
