The Dangers of Soap

Cleanliness is next to godliness, but many soaps are outright made under devilish practices. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4496/woman-scratching-face-thumb.jpg
Cleanliness is next to godliness, but many soaps are outright made under devilish practices.

The ingredients in many mass-brand and designer-brand soaps are made with ingredients known to damage skin, penetrate the body and can have potentially dangerous effects with long-term use.

Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS)


Commercial brand soaps contain Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS), also known as Sodium Dodecyl and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLFS), for its lathering effect. But this chemical called SLS is highly toxic and should be avoided at all costs. It causes eye damage, especially in babies and little children, when it gets into the eyes.

Numerous researchers have known for years that Sodium Laurel Sulfate is a skin irritant. Sodium Laurel Sulfate is used as a laboratory standard for irritating skin and inducing contact dermatitis. Sodium Laurel Sulfate irritates the skin by inflaming it. Many uninformed individuals are exacerbating chronic skin conditions by using soap, harmful soaps.

Animal fat

Most soap brands on the market also contain animal fat.

This is important if you are a vegan or one who abstains from consumption and use of animals and animal byproducts. The animal fat used in soap is called tallow.

Artificial fragrance

Commercial brand soaps contain synthetic chemicals to make them smell a certain way. 'Perfume' as a general word and ingredient means chemically derived fragrance.

Commercial brand soaps are using synthetic smells but these synthetic smells are chemically derived from harmful substances and agents.

Natural alternatives to soap

Natural brands of soap are made of or from glycerin, which is plant derived. Glycerin-based soaps are okay to use for bathing and showering purposes.

There are natural soaps that lather, and it's OK if the sodium laurel sulfate is derived from coconut. Coconut-based soaps make for some of the best natural soaps, especially if you like foam and lather.

Good alternative brands of soap include:
  • Kiss My Face
  • Grandpa
  • Nubian Heritage
  • Dr. Bronner's (liquid and bar soaps)
  • Juniper Ridge
  • Alaffia
  • EO
  • Natural Beauty
  • Mono Tiare Tahiti
  • South of France
  • River Soap Company
  • Organic Grooming
  • Tom's of Maine
  • Nature's Gate, and
  • Whole Foods Market (365)
Dherbs.com lists these natural soap brand companies above (and a few more not listed above in this article) and their respective website addresses in our must-have "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual" Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual e-book which is a great resource for anyone interested in natural and healthy living.

5 Worst States For Producing Toxic Chemicals

As the state of humanity's common home continues to deteriorate, the importance of Earth Day and the activism that surrounds it increases. We refuse to stop pump chemical pollutants into the air, water, and food supply, and even wrapping one's head around how badly damaged the earth has become can be difficult.

That's why reports like the Environmental Defense Fund's "Toxics Across America: Who Makes the Billions of Pounds of Toxic Chemicals Flowing Through the U.S. Economy Each Year" are so important.

The Antibiotics That Could Kill You

In 2010, Americans were prescribed 258 million courses of antibiotics, a rate of 833 per thousand people. Such massive usage, billions of doses, has been going on year after year.

We have few clues about the consequences of our cumulative exposures. We do know that widespread antibiotic treatments make us more susceptible to invaders by selecting for resistant bacteria.

These risks are now well-known, but I want to lay out a new concern: that antibiotic use over the years has been depleting the pool of our friendly bacteria -- in each of us -- and this is lowering our resistance to infections. In today's hyperconnected globe, that means that we are at high risk of future plagues that could spread without natural boundaries from person to person and that we could not stop. I call this "antibiotic winter."
