Natural Bar Soap, the Soap of Tomorrow photo by MOJOMOJO
Hey !
Do you know what your soap is made of ?
Let’s have a look in a 3 minutes read !

Some ingredients are worth showering with, others are not and yet they are still very common in soap. Most commercial – and even high-end – soaps happen to be closer to detergent than to real natural soap. If you don’t consider your skin as bag of dirty clothes, you might want to shower with real soap made of natural ingredients.

#1 Soap is soap, they are all the same? Well, not exactly !
#2 Harmful products on my skin? No, thank you !
#3 The future of men’s shower is natural bar soap !
#4 Try MOJOMOJO natural soap !

#1 Soap is soap, they are all the same? Well, not exactly !

Watch out for liquid and solid cleansers that often include synthetic detergent ingredients, not all soap is made of natural ingredients [Source]. These products are marketed as “body wash”, “shower gel” or “soap” but the truth is, few are genuine natural soaps. The main difference is that natural soap is made of lye and natural fats and oils, for example plant-based oils. Real soaps are as natural as possible with no additional chemical products of fragrances. Natural soap is moisturizing and essential for good skin care. And, for the avoidance of doubts : it is as efficient as chemical soap to wash bacteria and viruses off your skin [Source].

#2 Harmful products on my skin ? No, thank you !

Now it’s time to point out bad ingredients. Good news is, you can find the ingredients' list on the product label ! Bad news is, usually brands won’t make it obvious that they are selling detergent-like products. Packaging can look natural, but the product is actually filled with chemicals. Next time you go shopping, pick the most expensive body wash and read. We bet you’ll be surprised !
Let us give you a hand here. Below is a non-exhaustive list of ingredients you don’t want to bring with you in the shower and use on your skin. Go grab your body wash, it is worth checking !

- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS or SLES) is a widely used detergent ingredient found in many personal care products (shampoos, toothpaste, shower gels, liquid soaps). It is cheap and tends to irritate skin.

- Parabens are used as a preservative and found in some shower gels. Parabens are potentially disruptive to natural hormones.

- Dioxane is a contaminant and suspected carcinogen product known to irritate the eyes, and skin.

- Propylene glycol is a common ingredient in hygiene products. It's associated with dermatitis or eczema and can increase skin sensitivity.

- Fragrances are most of the time, they are non-natural essences. Companies are not required to disclose how their fragrances are made. Use products where “natural fragrances” is specified. Natural fragrances are made of essential oils or herbal fruit extracts.

- Triclosan reacts with chlorine from the water to create chloroform, a probable human carcinogen. Triclosan is still used in more than 2,000 consumer products like toothpaste, detergents, cosmetics. HSA acknowledges its long-term effect on the human body are hard to predict [Source].

Our goal is not to scare you, but instead to give you heads-up on what your shower products are potentially made of. The above list is an easy way for you to fast-check how natural or not your body wash is, and consider making the switch to natural soap !
