Orem, UT (PressExposure) July 06, 2011 -- When it comes to buying and using soap these days few people go any further than deciding whether they want a bar or the liquid variety. Even a store of modest size will offer hundreds of colorful and nicely smelling alternatives. But what do these products actually contain and how beneficial are they to the skin? The new website called Natural Soap Zone proposes to offer some insight into the matter, providing information on what natural soap actually is and opinions on why it is a better choice.
According to this new site the seemingly great variety customers are offered when it comes to personal hygiene, with countless brands and versions of products such as shampoo and soap, is actually not that impressive.
Although manufacturers are quick to market the benefits of various "natural" components of their products, such as various plant extracts, vitamins and more, the harsh reality is that most commercial products are almost entirely synthetic. Frequently they contain unnecessarily strong chemicals that aren't good for ones skin, overall health or for the environment.
Like the name implies, Natural Soap Zone wants to bring the benefits of traditional, all natural soap into the limelight. According to the site, natural soap is a simple product that can easily be made in the comfort of ones own home, with simple tools and affordable ingredients. Or, once one understands what natural soap is and what it isn't, it can be purchased from reputable manufacturers.
Natural Soap Zone sets out to help its readers in either case.
The goal of the site is to demystify the soap making process. It doesn't take professional chemists and beauticians in order to make good, skin friendly soap. In fact, by taking proper precautions and following instructions very similar to baking recipes, it is rather straightforward to make soap and shampoo for personal use.
At least so far the site doesn't provide specific recipes, but is more of a general guide for those interested in buying or making all natural soap. It covers what customers should pay attention to when choosing what soap to make and what characteristics certain kinds of soaps have.
