As a company people often ask us why should I buy organic and why this makes any difference to us as customers. We've put together a short guide below to answer some of your questions and help you understand why it is important to buy organic soap.
What are the benefits of organic soap?
If we're honest about it organic products are more expensive, generally from lesser known brands and it can seem like an easy choice to leave them on the shelf. So why is it important to buy organic?
There are two main reasons why, the first is for yourself and the second is the world.
For you, what goes into the beauty products that you use everyday on your skin, hair and face is important to you and the sad truth of the matter is that most of the huge beauty product making companies out there do not have your skin at the centre of their thoughts. Profit is their major motivator and this leads to them using ingredients such as petrochemicals and artificial colouring which are cheaper to use but are not designed to protect and nourish your skin and can even lead to long term health problems.
For the world, we are all becoming more aware that the planet we live on is showing signs of change but how can global warming be linked to the products that we buy in the supermarket or the shops? The truth is that it can have a very small impact, but it can have an impact all the same. The mass production of chemicals and the abuse of the environment by large companies is a part and parcel of getting mass produced products on the shelves for cheap prices and by buying these products we can unwittingly become part of a system that seems a long way from us.
If you want to investigate further what buying organic soaps means, the Organic Consumers Association has a very informative website.
