I’m sure most of us have no problem lathering ourselves with most standard soap bars, but what if we knew that some of the ingredients in these products were actually used in dead people and cause breast cancer? Ingredients like formaldehyde, PEG-6, artificial fragrance, sulfates, and other toxic chemicals can be found in your standard soap bar—YIKES!! Since I’ve really found such a huge difference in my hair, skin, and body using natural products I decided I wanted to try using some natural soaps! So I went to Lush and also the organic foods store and bought a ton of natural soaps from them!  I find most natural soaps are hand made and use FAAAR less ingredients and they leave out any of the harmful chemicals that most products have!

The experience has been AhhhhMAZING!! My skin has become so soft and clear and really silky–like obscenely silky! I have been sooo happy, that I’ve actually shared them with my sisters and literally when I felt their arms, they had never been softer!

So far I have been using a natural olive oil soap, rose soap, and The Snow Globe from Lush as well as Honey I Washed this Kids! Those are my fav and I swear by them! Have any of you tried natural soaps?

I have already switched to natural skin care. Natural soaps are great for people with skin sensitivities e.g. eczema, dermatitis, allergies etc.

Like Lush and Body Shop even many so called “natural” handmade soaps are using chemicals too. Read the labels carefully because being made by hand does not always mean its natural.

Hello Huda, LUSH has a very interesting and fun collection of soaps, but it is not all natural, they use SLS which is a detergent very bad for troubled skin, there are better handmade soaps out there in Dubai, try 202, Gardenia Rd. its a Dubai based soap arts brand, founded by a local lady, i swear by them. http://www.facebook.com/202GardeniaRd
