What’s in your soap? Is it even really soap? If it’s called a “beauty bar” or a “deodorizing bar” chances are it’s really a synthetic detergent product, not soap. Detergents remove moisture from your skin, which is why you need to use moisturizers after taking a bath or shower with a “beauty bar.” If your current bathing product lists ingredients you can’t even pronounce, do yourself and your skin a favor and switch to an organic soap with just a few recognizable ingredients. Dr. Bronner’s is one of a handful of companies that make a full line of soaps from certified organic ingredients and essential oils. Packaging is recycled, and the company also supports sustainable agriculture and farm worker health. www.drbronner.com.
