Glycerin is a natural skin softener. It attracts water from the air around it. Because of this, it is used in products to help maintain moisture in the skin. During the soap-making process, the oils/fats and lye blend together to form soap.
In most manufactured soaps, the processing removes most of the glycerin. This process leaves behind by-products which dries out our skin. A consumer now needs to buy another product to moisturize. This increases the profit of commercial companies selling soap in regular stores. There is zero lye left over in crafted soap made my experts.
Organic soaps are cruelty-free. They do not use animal fat and are not tested on animals. This also means companies cannot source ingredients from suppliers that test on animals. They also Cannot hire a third party lab to conduct animal tests. Many organic soaps use botanical extracts and herbs making it is an ideal choice for vegans. They do not use animal fats. Oils like coconut and palm oil are used as a base oil. Adding in flowers (rose, lavender), plants (tea tree, basil) spices (cinnamon, clove) or fruits (grapefruit, orange) are a delightful way to enhance soap.
6. Better Healing Properties:
Natural ingredients add healing to many skin conditions.
There are tons of ingredients to aid in wellness. Organic soaps use essential oils, aloe, coconut oil, turmeric, honey, herbs to name a few. These well known extracts can help with controlling acne, soothing eczema, and treating sunburns to name a few.
7. Maintain pH level:
A soap's perfect pH level ranges from 9 to 10. Commercial detergent based soaps have synthetic surfactants. This allows soap to dry and package quickly, extend shelf life and increase lather.
Thus making organic soaps more gentler on the skin. Ingredients such as coconut oil provides moisture and maintains the ph level.
8. Natural Preservatives:
Cold process soap making never needs presesrvatives. They have a pH level that doesn't allow mold or bacteria growth.
So many companies end up adding more harsh chemicals which can harm our health over time.

The main use for SLS n products is to create lather. The more lather the better the impression of cleaning power. Some products contain over 50% sulfates!
