Why Natural Soap is Better for Your Skin – And Your Health
by Mumu Bath
Wondering if you should make the switch from store-bought soap to a more natural option? These five benefits of using all-natural, organic soap may make your decision easier. Once you try these delicious-smelling, creamy soaps, there’s no going back!
Most soaps you buy in the store smell good and lather nicely, thanks to harsh synthetic ingredients that absorb into your skin and bloodstream. One of the most common concerns regarding synthetic commercial soaps is that they have toxic ingredients that may disrupt the endocrine and reproductive systems.
Endocrine disruptors are found in many plastic and petroleum-containing products (like some commercial soaps). Check out this article by the National Institute of Environment Health Sciences to learn more about how synthetic ingredients can wreak havoc on our hormones.
However, our all-natural soaps smell good and truly nourish your skin. You still get a rich, creamy lather without the toxins. Try our Lavender Oasis bar with naturally exfoliating and detoxifying oatmeal (gluten-free!).
All of our soaps are made in small batches with fresh ingredients. We don’t use preservative chemicals to keep our soaps on the shelves. After they’re made, they’re shipped to you to enjoy soon after production. Not only are the ingredients safer and more nourishing for your skin, but they also smell fresher (there’s a huge difference between fresh citrus extract and synthetic citrus scent). Try out our zesty Kiss Me Sunshine bar to feel – and smell – the difference. Your skin will thank you.
Instead of super bubbly (but skin-drying) sodium lauryl sulfate, we use high-quality glycerin and moisturizing plant-based fats like coconut oil and olive oil to hydrate and protect your skin.
Rather than stripping it of its natural oils, our soaps help clean and nourish skin without removing the good stuff. “Squeaky clean” is not as good as it sounds. But satiny smooth sure is! Try our Rose Pink Clay bar to experience truly hydrated skin.
Better for the Environment
Our recyclable and minimal packaging means low/zero waste, and the clean, organic ingredients going down the drain won’t harm plants, animals, or aquatic life. You can take care of your skin and the environment at the same time – a win-win! Make your soap last longer with our 100% native beechwood drain dish – no more soggy soap!
Sometimes even all-natural, organic soaps can cause irritation. Everyone has different skin, and some people are sensitive to certain oils or extracts like almond oil or lavender. We proudly craft soap for all skin types – even babies. Mumu Bath offers a Super Simple Baby bar, Pure bar, and Morning Dew Eczema Relief bar for those who want nourishing natural soap without the added scents.
