Soap Is More Harmful Than You Think


If you are cleansing your face with soap and water because you want to avoid harsh chemicals, you could be doing more damage to your skin than you think. Using a natural Herbal Facial Cleanser will keep your skin looking younger and healthier. Even soaps advertised as, “Natural,” can irritate and dry your skin, which could lead to itchiness and even eczema. Research shows that soap used on infants can influence the bacterial flora causing an imbalance of pH.

Soap will wash away the natural protective barrier in your skin. Sure, it may wash away the grime and dirt, but it will also wipe out the natural oil barrier right along with it. That squeaky-clean feeling that you get from soap is your body screaming for the natural oils that are being stripped away.

Your skin has acid mantle barriers or fatty acids that protect your skin from bacteria and infections. Those fatty acids naturally moisturize your skin. If you use soap, your skin will eventually become red, inflamed, and dry.

Using soap can also interfere with Vitamin D absorption. By washing away the natural acid barrier in your skin with soap, you are also washing away the Vitamin D synthesized in and on your skin.

Soap up on a regular basis and you will be getting rid of bacteria, but you will also be washing away essential bacteria that is good for your skin. Because soap is an anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, it destroys all bacteria, not just the bad stuff. Healthy bacteria on your skin plays a vital role in overall health.
