Natural, ecological, organic – these three words have become the trade mark of quality, the trade mark of the way of life we all strive for. Health and natural environment are the main issues we often focus on nowadays when deciding what to purchase, whether it is food, clothes, a unique hybrid car or a wholesale soap.
A natural soap was the only choice people had until the beginning of the twentieth century, when detergents were invented. Why would we go back to using a product we've practically given up to when something apparently better is in our reach? First of all, because nowadays we understand better the side-effects of synthetic soaps; secondly, and more importantly, because currently manufacturers have wider knowledge on the making of natural skincare products and a much larger range of natural ingredients is available. If before animal fats were mainly used in the soap production, today a great variety of botanical oils with beneficial proprieties to the skin can be obtained and purchased as wholesale soap supplies.
Industrially made soaps are far from being eco-friendly; they are made of great amounts of animal fat, petroleum and all kinds of chemicals that can negatively affect our skin, such as sulfates, which can cause unwanted irritations. A natural soap, on the other hand, does not contain harmful fatty acids, neither phosphates, nor sulfates.
As the ingredients that are used are natural and combined manually, a hand-made soap is not as easily produced in large quantities as commercial soaps. However, manufacturers work hard and make as many bars as it is required to make a wholesale soap purchase possible.
Instead of chemicals, a natural soap contains oils extracted from olives, coconuts or almonds, shea butter, goat's milk and many other organic ingredients. The benefits of these elements for our skin are numerous. Coconut oil, for instance, is a great moisturizer and nourishes the skin. The fat extracted from the fruit of the African Shea tree is used for healing sunburns, eczemas and even psoriasis, reducing skin irritations and the appearance of different sorts of scars. Olive oil softens, smooths and exfoliates the skin, leaving our pores free to breath in a very healthy way; it also displays anti-oxidant properties, protecting the skin from ageing. That is why purchasing a wholesale soap for our family and all our friends and relatives is a great way to show our care and love for them.
As manufacturing hand-made soaps takes more time and effort and because natural ingredients are usually more expensive than chemicals, it may seem hand-made soaps are higher priced than commercial ones. But if we do take into account the benefits we gain for our health and the comfort from using a natural soap, we might consider that, overall, the apparently cheaper bars are in fact more expensive. More than that, as manufacturers offer a chance of buying a wholesale soap, it is actually possible to get a very reasonable price for a high-quality bar. Then, the pleasure we'll feel at the touch of our skin after the botanical oils do their job will be priceless.
