What Is Vegan Soap?
Vegan soaps are soaps made from fats and oils of vegetable origin. Unfortunately, the soap market is riddled with products that aren’t vegan. With most soaps on the market today being made from animal fats and lye, and still to this day, many soap makers are still making soap from animal tallow.
Types of Vegan Soaps
There are a wide array of vegan soaps available. For example, vegetable soap. Vegetable soap offers a cruelty-free and natural way of washing ourselves with something other than animal fat. Our vegetable soaps are made from 100% vegetables and rich shea butter, meaning you can wash guilt-free.
Other types of Vegan soaps include;
- Aleppo Soap
- Castile Soap
- Greek Olive Soap
- Marseille Soap
- Nabulsi Soap
- Glycerin Soap
It is worth noting, not all glycerin soap is 100% vegan.
Thanks to vegan soap using only organic ingredients, the soap will not pollute the air, soil, and water supply, due to not having to use harmful chemicals in the manufacturing process.
When buying vegan soaps, be sure to always to read the label, as some products claim to be “made with organic ingredients” however, this is often used as a marketing ploy from soap companies.
Below is a list of organic products to look for;
- Vegetable Oil
- Rich Shea Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Olive Oil
- Essential Oils
- Sunflower Seeds
As mentioned above, organic soaps are cruelty-free, allowing you to wash, knowing the product you’re using hasn’t been tested on innocent animals and hasn’t used any products from animals.
Another reason to go vegan (soap) is because the soaps are richly scented, and make your skin feel much revitalised, thanks to being packed with vitamins.
Vegan soaps are also beneficial for people that have sensitive skin. Unnatural ingredients can irritate the skin and in some cases create skin complications. Vegan soap, however, can be used for even the most sensitive skin, particularly people with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
It is also worth noting, that research shows the use of cosmetic products made with animal fat may clog pores and increase the development of blackheads on skin.
