|How is Your Storebought Soap Working For Your Skin Type?
Dry Skin Oily Skin? Now that you have visited our online soap shop why not invest in your skin nourishment? Blue Dolphin Soaps are handmade from all natural earth grown vegan plant derived oils. We also offer a few goat milk and honey bee soaps.
When our vegan oils are mixed together with exacting amounts of distilled water and sodium hydroxide ( lye ) we end up with two by-products, soap and glycerin. Soap is a deep cleansing agent an alkaline product that bonds to dirt and other foreign materials found on the skin. Pure soap itself has a tendency to strip the skin of its protective oils. This is where the glycerin steps in and helps to moisturize the skin and protect it from drying out. Tip: Use one of our soap sac's or soap saver's to exfoliate dead skin away and to help your soap bars last longer. Every couple weeks remove the bar soap and throw your saver in the washing machine clean it of dead skin and bacteria and reuse it.
Most commercial store bought soaps are made from animal fat and have been triple or French milled which extracts the glycerin, leaving a hard - long lasting bar that de-moisturize your skin. You have seen them at department store packaged in beautiful boxes with tissue wrapping inside. What you may not realize is many of these large cheaper store bought soaps contain S.L.S. sodium laurel sulfate an ingredient also used to strip garage floors of grease. It can also strip your skin of its protective oil layer leaving you with that squeaky clean feeling and a need for expensive lotions to re-moisturize your skin. Another potentially harmful chemical that can be found in mass produced soap is Propylene Glycol, an ingredient similar to what is found in radiator fluid to give soap glide.Many people with skin challenges ( acne, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, ) find it worsens using commercial soaps because of those chemicals I believe that olive and coconut oil is a far better choice than animal fat and chemicals on my skin.
Although natural soap is my flagship product, I have diversified my line after learning how to prepare many other herbal and essential oil skincare products like my BD Foot and Leg cream and much more. As I jumped head first into learning how to eliminate chemicals and replace them using natural ingredients it became more clear to me that natural was the best way to go. I discovered that nature gives us healing ingredients found in tree leaves, bark, seeds, flowers and plants. Using vegan and herbal ingredients I developed my own safe natural products for wholesome, beautiful, youthful looking skin. I think you will be more than satisfied with our selections.
Our soaps will last one person about 2-5 weeks depending on use and storage away from flowing water. Let's face it making handmade soap isn't rocket science, but most people just don't have the patience to learn the techniques, nor do they want to make the investment in the failures that always occur getting the process down pat for each individual recipe. It's fun for me and I have already made my mistakes so now it's become my passion and my business. We offer several varieties and fragrances of soap and other products so please visit our Product List to learn which may benefit your skin best. Please feel free to comment on your findings. Please tell your friends about us because word of mouth is our greatest form of advertising. Be well my friends. MA Hilton, Owner
