Are Natural Soaps Truly Better For The Skin?

Natural soaps cost a little bit more than their commercial soap relatives. So, is the extra cost worth it? Are natural soaps better? Let’s take a look.

In this post, we want to talk a little bit about the differences between commercial and natural soap. We also want to tell you the ways in which natural soap is a lot better than the equivalent.

Natural Soaps vs Commercial Soaps


Mild soaps are made of completely natural ingredients. Ingredients that you will find out there in nature. This can be bees’ wax, plants, etc.

Commercial soaps may have a few natural ingredients, but most of what you find in a commercial soap will be synthetic chemicals. They are much, much cheaper to produce. However, the fact that they are mostly chemicals can cause a few issues. We will come onto that later.

Many of the soaps that you find in stores are commercial soaps. They often sell better due to the lower prices, using cheaper ingredients. As you can imagine, most commercial soaps are inferior to natural soaps when it comes to nourishing and soothing the skin.

Natural Soap Offers a Good Clean

Contrary to popular belief, natural soap does offer a good clean. Just because natural soap is not loaded to the brim with chemical antibacterial, it doesn’t mean that natural soap doesn’t kill all the bacteria on your body. It does, and it does it incredibly well. Some would argue that natural soap is a little bit better at it.

The ingredients selected for natural soap are natural antibacterial products. This means that they are going to offer a tremendous clean. Natural soaps are going to help lift all of that filth and grime from your skin, which means that you are going to end up feeling very, very clean.

Natural Soap Is Less Harsh on Skin


This is one of the main reasons why people opt for natural soaps over commercial products. If you have skin issues (e.g. sensitive skin, or some allergies), then it may actually be worth considering natural soap because it has less of an impact on your skin.

It is no secret that many man-made chemicals in soaps are bad for your skin [1]. They can cause skin irritation. This leads to rashes. This leads to itching. It may not happen right away, but over time, your body is going to come to hate those chemicals. This is why it is often recommended that people change their soap every so often. It stops that skin irritation.

You do not have to worry about any of these issues with natural soap. Obviously, you will still have to double-check to ensure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the natural soap. However, the chances of this are pretty slim.

Natural Soap Smells Better

There are very few chemical soaps on the market that get their scent from natural sources. Most of the chemical soaps have synthetic scents. This means that while they sort of smell like what they are supposed to smell like, something is always going to be smelling a little bit off.

When a natural soap is fragranced with essential oils, then you can bet the scent will have come from 100% natural sources. This means that you are going to smell fantastic without any unpleasantness.

The best part? The scent from the natural soap may hang around for a little bit longer too. With commercial soaps, the idea is that you smell good ‘in the moment’, but because much of the soap is made from chemical ingredients, the scent will disappear rather quickly.

Even with unscented soaps, the natural soaps ability to prevent body odor is better than most commercial cleansing products.


Natural soap is definitely better than commercial soap for skin nourishment and the reasons mentioned . Natural soap is fantastic for those people that want something that is not quite so harsh on their skin. It is perfect for somebody that is looking for something that will keep them clean.

It is perfect for those people that want to smell nice. If you can pick up natural soap, then do so. It isn’t all that hard to find. In fact, we have a decent range of natural soaps right here on this website.
