Honestly, not all soaps contain the best ingredients for your skin. Especially, when it comes to commercial soaps, many of their constituents have nothing to do with a healthy skin care regimen.
They are simply present to enhance the physical properties of the soap bar itself, without any concern for your skin’s health. Apparently, many ingredients used in commercial soap manufacturing are known to have a seriously damaging effect on your skin’s health as well.
It is for this reason that many skin experts and beauticians recommend using handmade soap bars. And while there isn’t any doubt about the numerous benefits that natural soap bars are packed with, we still believe that our consumers should be well-aware of the ingredients and essential oil benefits that our handmade soap bars compose of.
This way you can get to better understand your favorite handmade soap bar and know exactly which one to choose from our wide variety of natural soap bars.
In this article, we highlight some of the best soap ingredients for your skin and why they are important.

This knowledge we believe will essentially help you in choosing the right type of natural soap bar from our wide range of handmade soap bars.
Remember that in our case, all the best soap ingredients discussed below are only sourced from the most authentic places which also share our passion and love for encouraging only organic and natural products.
1 # Palm oil
With high amounts of oleic acid, palm oil is known for its ability to clean your skin from unwanted oils and provide protection to your skin pores against infection and dirt, palm oil also works as a natural moisturizer for your skin.
Especially for those with dry skin issues, natural handmade soap bars with palm oil can be great for protecting, moisturizing, and hydrating their skin surface.
Palm oil in natural soap bars also works as a defense against temperature and air dryness while keeping your skin fresh and healthy.
2 # Shea butter
Sourced from the African shea tree, the ivory-colored fat or shea butter is rich in stearic and oleic acids. Stearic acid brings hardness to the soap bar while oleic acid helps generate rich and sturdy lather for skin conditioning and moisturizing.
Working together cohesively, both these core elements of shea butter in a natural handmade soap bar help your skin retain its silkiness and softness.
Another great quality of shea butter is its suitability for use on all skin types.
3 # Essential oils
Essential oils in handmade soap bars are a very important ingredient and contribute much towards enabling natural soap bars to offer only natural qualities and benefits for your skin.
Each natural handmade soap bar is crafted with a specific formulation of essential oils to offer a unique blend of benefits, feel, and aroma to its user.
Among many qualities of essential oils, the most notable ones are their anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.
4 # Coconut oil
Natural soap bars can heal and repair skin damages. One important ingredient that helps in this regard is coconut oil.
With high levels of lauric acid, coconut oil in handmade soap bars not only moisturizes and softens your skin but also helps it recover from damages and fight a few other skin-related issues. Coconut oil in natural handmade soap bars can easily take care of psoriasis, inflammation, and eczema.
5 # Vitamin E oil
Vitamin E oil is known to add moisturizing properties to handmade natural soap bars. Besides this, it also acts as a fat-soluble agent. This means that it is great for removing unwanted oil and dirt particles from your skin pores.
6 # Olive oil
Olive oil for many well-known skin health-related reasons is a favorite ingredient among makers of natural soap bars.
Olive oil contains high amounts of oleic acid, which as explained above, gives natural soap bars the ability to work as a cleansing agent as well as create a rich and creamy lather.
If you have sensitive and dry skin, our natural handmade soap bars with olive oil can add great value to your skincare routine.
