I start with my definition of pure cleaning soap as a result of not everybody defines it the identical manner. My definition of pure cleaning soap is that it is freed from any artificial colorants, preservatives or fragrances. It also needs to be freed from carcinogens resembling coal tar, mineral oil and benzene. A lot of the chemical substances that you’ve got been warned as being hazardous to your well being fall into certainly one of these classes. Parabens for instance are a preservative. Phthalates are actually mostly used as a fixative in sure perfumes.

As a facet observe, lye has many makes use of within the meals business such because the making and curing of olives. As well as there actually is not any approach to make precise “cleaning soap” with out utilizing lye.

Natural means these pure components have been grown and produced with out utilizing any artificial or chemical components resembling pesticides. There are rules concerned to be organically licensed and in a position to put natural in your skincare product label. Nonetheless, even that could be a gray space because the product solely must be 70% natural to qualify.
