Cold process soap, also known as handmade soap, is a natural alternative to commercial soap that offers numerous benefits for the skin and the environment. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the benefits of cold process soap and why you should make the switch.

 Natural ingredients: Cold process soap is made from natural ingredients such as oils, butters, and herbs, making it gentler on the skin compared to commercial soap. The natural ingredients in cold process soap provide nourishing benefits to the skin, leaving it feeling hydrated and refreshed.

  1. Chemical-free: Commercial soap often contains harsh chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate, which can dry out and irritate the skin. Cold process soap is free from these harmful chemicals, making it a safer and more natural option.
  2. Long-lasting: Cold process soap is made through a slow curing process, which results in a harder, longer-lasting bar of soap compared to commercial soap. Not only is this more economical, but it also means you'll be producing less waste by using less soap over time.
  3. Customisable: Handmade soap can be customised to suit your specific skin type and preferences, with the option to add natural ingredients like essential oils and herbs for added benefits. Whether you have dry, oily, or sensitive skin, you can find a cold process soap that's right for you.
  4. Environmentally friendly: Cold process soap is made in small batches and doesn't contain harmful chemicals, making it a more environmentally friendly option compared to commercial soap. Additionally, many soap makers use sustainable biodegradable plastic-free packaging, further reducing their impact on the environment.
