5 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Natural Soap
Posted by Samantha Lawson
You might have read about some of the benefits of switching to a natural soap. Here at NEOM, we know that our skin is a precious thing, so we’re always looking for new ways to give it the care it deserves.
Soap is something that we use every day, and switching to a natural soap can have a TON of benefits for your skin as well as your wellbeing. So, with that in mind, here are five reasons why YOU should make the switch…
1. It Has A TOTALLY Natural Fragrance
At NEOM, we LOVE natural fragrances that are obtained through essential oils. Our Great Day Natural Soap is blended with 8 of the purest possible essential oils, including wild mint and mandarin. Using this first thing in the morning can give you a 100% natural mood boost and help you feel good.
We don’t use ANY artificial fragrances; our soap only uses natural ingredients to give you a wonderful, balanced natural fragrance. And they don’t just smell AMAZING… essential oils are also rich in antioxidants, are anti-inflammatory and help to hydrate your skin. That all sounds like a pretty good thing to have in your soap, right?
2. It’s AWESOME For Your Skin
Giving yourself an all-natural treat can be a great way to keep your skin feeling nourished and healthy. And one of the best things about natural soap is its simplicity: NEOM uses a small but effective selection of ingredients in our natural soap that won’t overload your skin.
Our soap is enriched with rapeseed oil, coconut oil and shea butter; all three being totally natural to help to leave your skin feeling clean, moisturised and soft. These ingredients are also packed full of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which help to soothe dry and irritated skin.
3. It’s Vegan-Friendly
Natural soaps are a great, vegan-friendly way to keep yourself clean, as they often opt to use plant-based fats, as opposed to animal fats.
If you want to ensure that you’re entirely avoiding any interaction with animal-based products, making sure that you check the exact ingredients in your toiletries is really important. At NEOM, we have done it for you… our Great Day Natural Soap is a cleansing product that contains no trace of animal fats or non-vegan ingredients.
4. It’s A Great Step Towards An All-Natural Routine
If you’re using natural scents around your home and natural creams on your skin, why not make your showers and hand washing routines 100% natural as well?
It can be easy to feel like the soap that you use doesn’t really matter, and some people write it off as not being all that important. But think about all of the GOOD WORK that your other natural products are doing. Don’t let it go to waste!
Keeping your entire skincare routine 100% natural gives you a much better idea of the EXACT ingredients that you’re using, which is surely ALWAYS a good thing, right?
5. It Helps Save The Planet!
Did you know that switching from liquid soap to natural soap bars could help to reduce your carbon footprint. A recent study found that it takes around five times more energy to produce liquid soap than it does to make a solid soap bar.
Another factor to consider is that liquid soap is often kept in plastic bottles. Although these could be recycled after use, removing the need for the bottle in the first place reduces the risk of waste.
