The Giraffe’s Favorite Natural, Handmade Soaps

Soft Healthy Skin

How much time do we spend worrying about what goes in our bodies; looking at ingredients and trying to decide what is healthiest for our families and us? Now, how often do we ponder the significance of what we put on our skin? Commercial soaps are full of chemicals, free of the glycerin that good soaps contain, and cannot compare to the benefits offered by natural soap. There are tons of places to find handmade soap. However, not everyone making natural soap is using the highest quality ingredients. We feel it’s still important to read labels and question what is in your soap. We’ve made the search for a quality handmade soap easier for you, and share a few of our favorite handmade, natural soaps with you here.

Benefits of Natural, Handmade Soaps

Natural handcrafted soap is a luxurious way to keep your skin healthy.

Handcrafted Soap has Healing Properties

Free of chemicals, pure ingredient, and essential oils contain healing properties in addition to natural aromatic fragrances.  Common skin disorders like acne, eczema and psoriasis are treated with many of the essential oils found in handmade soaps.

Handcrafted Soap Contains Anti-Oxidants

Handcrafted soap provides gentle cleansing and locks in moisture.  Vitamin E oil, wheat germ oil, as well as natural and essential oils like coconut and jojoba offer a high impact anti-oxidant factor.

Handcrafted Soaps Retain Glycerin

Glycerin, often removed from commercial soaps, is what creates the lather that leaves skin moisturized.
