7 Benefits of Switching to Natural Skincare Products

by Mumu Bath

Natural soap does more than make your house smell good and look pretty – it packs a punch! From supporting the environment to protecting your skin’s natural microbiome, there are plenty of reasons to swap those synthetic ingredients in plastic bottles for carefully formulated natural skincare products.

 Mumu Bath started from a mother’s mission to create safe soap for her family. One thing led to another, and now we share that passion with you in our ever-growing natural skincare line. We’d love to help you choose the best products for your skin. Most of our products are great for all skin types. However, some are specially formulated to alleviate certain conditions like eczema or severe dry skin. Find your fit and ask questions at hello@mumubath.com – we’re here to help!

In the meantime, here are seven awesome benefits when you make the switch to natural skincare.

7 Long-term Benefits of Using Natural Soap

Real Nourishment & Hydration

Most commercial products don’t infuse your skin with nourishing ingredients like avocado oil, vitamin c, and CoQ10. Often, they may say that contain natural ingredients, but when you look at the label, they add just enough to say it’s in there.

The ingredients at the top of the label make up most of the product. So it may be time to switch things up if you find your natural ingredient down there at the bottom of the label smothered beneath ingredients you can’t pronounce.

Try our Repair & Hydrate Face Serum with rose and apple extract, squalene, argan oil, and CoQ10 to give your skin the nourishment it needs to stay healthy and fight back!

Reduce Exposure to Synthetic Ingredients

It’s inevitable. We’re all going to come in contact with environmental toxins, unknown chemicals, and synthetic ingredients. It’s all about minimizing the exposure. One way to do that is by switching to natural skincare. Next to what you ingest, what you apply and absorb through your skin matters most. When you fuel your body with healthy foods and use natural skincare products, your body can more effectively fend off the environmental stuff. How you care for your skin plays a major role in your overall health.

Protects Skin’s Natural Barrier

Your skin is an incredibly effective first line of defense against harsh toxins and microbes like bacteria that could harm you! It’s important to keep it in tip-top shape. Some synthetic products strip your skin’s natural moisture barrier and disrupt the skin’s microbiome, leaving it susceptible to toxins, germs, and irritation. Natural skincare products help nourish and clean skin without hindering its natural effectiveness.

Enhanced Elasticity, Brightness, & Overall Skin Health

Natural skin enhancers like lavender, green tea, orange peel, and kaolin clay will help purify, nourish, and moisturize skin. You can get bright, youthful, dewy skin naturally without bombarding it with harsh chemicals. Over time, your skin will feel firmer and rejuvenated. That’s why our motto is better skin, naturally!

Promote Hydrated Skin

Some synthetic soaps, moisturizers, and conditioners feel hydrating, but they may not be getting the job done – or even worse, they may prevent your skin from getting the hydration and nourishment it needs! Have you ever applied a heavily-scented lotion and felt like it zapped the moisture right out of your skin minutes later? That’s because it did! Either the chemicals used in the fragrance are causing irritation and dryness; or, you’re applying low-quality synthetic moisturizers that feel soft but don’t actually moisturize skin.

Swap the fake ingredients for the real ones and feel the lasting difference. Natural moisturizers from oils like coconut, olive, avocado, palm, and shea butter protect your skin barrier, prevent moisture loss, and provide deep, lasting hydration. Other ingredients like oatmeal, aloe vera, and rose absolute also nourish and hydrate skin.

Prevent Potential Side-Effects of Synthetic Soaps

Synthetic soaps contain certain chemicals that could potentially cause skin irritation, exacerbate skin conditions, cause allergic reactions, weaken your skin’s natural barrier, or even disrupt hormones. You can prevent those side-effects by switching to natural soaps and skincare products to reap long-term benefits and healthier skin. Remember that some of what you put on your skin absorbs into your body, so you want to be sure the products you use are safe, clean, and natural.

Sustainability & Eco-Friendly

Most natural soap brands leave a much smaller carbon footprint than large commercial soap companies. At Mumu Bath, our goal is to create as little waste as possible by hand-making our soaps and shipping them in recyclable materials. We do not use plastic, and our soaps do not contain any ingredients that could harm the environment, nor do we test on animals. Our ingredients are vegan-friendly! We also source our palm oil exclusively with Palm Done Right, who works to create jobs and preserve oil palm forests and farms in developing parts of the world.
