We use many things like soap, face wash, face pack, and so on as a part of our daily routine to sustain a hale and healthy skin. While we use different products for different parts of the body as a face wash for our face, under cream for our eyes, etc..soap is the product that we use throughout our body. Hence, we should be cautious in choosing the right and best soap for our skin. An excellent ideal soap is free from chemicals that harm our skin. 'How to choose a good soap?' is one among the million-dollar questions, and let's explore the answer to this. Choosing a good soap depends on what ingredients we should look for and what should be avoided. We need to be aware of the must-avoid ingredients. Here are the five must avoid ingredients:
Most of our skincare products have parabens which are used as preservatives. Considering the toxicity of this ingredient, it is a mandate that we ensure that our soap is free from parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl, Propyl). It is not only harmful to our skin but also the environment. Plus, there is a high risk of getting affected by cancer on continued usage of soaps containing parabens.
Carcinogen or Sodium Laureth Sulphate is yet another harmful ingredient that can irritate the eyes and skin. It is usually a foaming agent but is not suitable for our skin.
These are not natural ingredients and hence are not very good for our skin.
It has antibacterial properties but inhibits the function of the thyroid gland, and hence we need to carefully check and ensure that our soap does not have triclosan.
Ethanolamine Compounds are nothing but DEA (diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), and TEA (triethanolamine). It leads to complications such as hormone disruption, cancer, liver tumors, etc...So, it is one of the five ingredients that must be avoided.
Soaps suitable for different skin:
Having explored the harmful ingredients, now let us look into how to choose the soap suitable for our skin type. It is highly essential to know our skin type and choose a soap that accords our skin.
Usually, normal skin is neither oily nor dry. Herbal soaps are the best choice for normal skin. As listed above, avoid those ingredients and ensure that it does not have high pH value or high acidic content.
When you have dry skin, the first important thing that should be ensured is that it should consist of a suitable moisturizer or ingredients that possess moisturizing properties. A soap with glycerine best suits dry skin as glycerine has moisturizing properties and can efficiently intake moisture from the air. Other suitable ingredients for dry skin are aloe vera, vegetable oils, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and avocado. Again, it is highly advisable to discard those mentioned above 'must avoid' ingredients.
Oily skin requires soap with a good cleanser. The soap should be effective enough to control the production of sebum and oils and thereby prevent acne. Herbal soaps are, in fact, the best choice in this case. Soaps with tea tree extracts, lemon extracts, rosemary, coconut milk, apple extracts, honey, and papaya extracts are ideal for this skin type.
A simple and natural soap is best suitable for sensitive skin. It should ideally be devoid of essential oils. Soaps with neem, goat milk, honey, carrot, and milk are preferred. Additionally, the pH levels should be balanced.
With a combination of the different skin types, the soap ideal for combination skin should be able to cleanse, moisturize and nourish the skin effectively. Soaps best suited only for oily skin or dry skin must be avoided in case of combination skin. In such cases, glycerine soap makes a good choice.
