DIY Natural Melt and Pour Soap Crafting Ultimate Guide to Making & Selling Colorful Natural Soaps
Paraben, Sulfate and Triclosan are some of the ingredients in commercial soap that I never questioned until I began making soap at home. That’s when my curiosity got the best of me.
After finding just these three, I wanted to call a truce to look for dangerous additives in what I used (and worse yet, my children used) to clean.
That’s when I thought I found the fourth one. Fragrance! How in the world could something that sounds as harmless as fragrance possibly damage your skin? How wrong I was. The definition of fragrance was a far cry in meaning than the one on the soap label.
I began making soap because it was a fun hobby I could share with my children. I continued because it morphed into a successful small business. But I’m now compelled to continue knowing that I’m contributing to the health of my family.
Before we get into the actual soap making, I do share my findings about just these four potentially harmful ingredients found in too many soaps and body washes. I am sure you will be shocked to read it.
