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.

    Q: I had a question regarding the chicken pox and other child sickness. I wanted to know what must I give my 8 month old baby if he do get the chicken pox or other sickness. I haven?t given him any vaccination, so he is clean of all that pollution that they are given the children. Could you please advice what I must do if he gets that. And also he are teething and he has some slime on his chest, I?m giving him some sweet basil and also mint tea to see if he can pass it out. If you have any other bush that I can give him please let me know.

    A:

    First of all, don't even worry about chicken pox lest you give the disease energy and attract it to your son. However, I understand your concern as a mother.

    Prevention is better than remedy and you have already done the BEST thing by not vaccinating your child. Kudos to you - a very smart and wise move!

    Give your child plenty of immune boosting herbs -- Pau D'Arco, Astragulus, Echinacea, Goldenseal and Cat's Claw. Make a tea of them and sweeten them with maple syrup or agave nectar.

    We have an article on "the dangers of childhood vaccines" on our site under "articles" you may find interesting!

    Q: I am a fair-skinned African American and I was wondering what are your recommendations for skin care? I don’t wear makeup or anything; I am just interested in finding a cleansing, moisturizing regimen for daily use. All the products I have seen are SO expensive and or full of toxins. I don’t have any skin problems such as acne. I noticed you have several soaps but I was unsure as to which are best for my face. Finally, is there really a need to wear sunscreen? Is there such a thing as "safe" sunscreen?

    A:

    SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN OUR ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL MANUAL E-BOOK WHICH HAS A LISTING OF HEALTHY/ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS INCLUDING SKIN CARE PRODUCTS. IT'S AVAILABLE FROM THE ON-LINE STORE ($10). THE NUBAIN HERITAGE SOAPS WE SELL ARE GOOD BUT I ACTUALLY RECOMMEND KISS MY FACE BRANDS FOR SKIN CARE PURPOSES. THERE IS REALLY NO NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN. SUNSCREEN IS PROMOTED BECAUSE IT WAS INVENTED AND SO IT MUST SELL, SO A THEORY THAT THE SUN WAS DAMAGING TO THE SKIN WAS CREATED AND SUNSCREEN BEGAN TO SELL.

    Sounds like you're pretty toxic and need to do a good cleanse. Give the Full Body Detox a try! Also, stop using commercial brand deodorants (which could be causing the problem). Use natural deodorant like brands from Alvera (available from Whole Foods Market). Use natural soap brands when washing/bathing, i.e. Kiss My Face olive and aloe soap.

    Q: Many vitamins and minerals websites indicate that their products have been tested and actually contain what they claim to contain; what are your protocols on manufacturing? Are your herbs organically grown? Thank you.

    A:

    Organic/Wild-crafted Herbs? Dherbs.Com only utilizes organic and wild-crafted herbs in its formulas and compounds. Although organic herbs are always not available, we order our herbs in advance to make sure we keep our products full of 100% organic herbs as well as 100% wild-crafted herbs. At Dherbs.Com, we go the extra mile for our customers and we stay on top of our game to bring the customer the best product available! No other herbal company uses as many herbs as we use in our formulas nor does any other herbal company or business use the degree of rare and exotic herbs as we use in our formulas. At Dherbs.Com, without a doubt, you get the BEST and for LESS! Gelatin Capsules? Dherbs.Com only uses vegetarian (vegan) capsules made from 100% plant fiber as Dherbs.Com has a policy to not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients in the manufacturing of its products. Gelatin capsules are derived from animals (mostly pig) and are thus not vegan or even halal or kosher. Also, gelatin capsules do not fully dissolve in the stomach like vegetarian capsules. Most herbal companies use gelatin capsules because they are cheap, costing 2-3 times less than vegetarian capsules. Dherbs.Com does not let high prices or expenses stand in our way of bringing people the Best, the Safest, and the Soundest! Dherbs.Com is people first! Tablets? Dherbs.Com does not use tablets because tablets require the mixing of too many additives in order to make the tablet stick together or bind and come out a certain way, i.e. dense, smooth surface, etc. Capsules allow us at Dherbs.Com to give our customers 100% pure herbal ingredients held together in a 100% digestible vegetarian capsule for maximum absorbency in the body. Preservatives? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no preservatives in any of its products as the only thing that needs to be preserved are “dead†things and herbs are not dead, but living (living foods), therefore that which is alive does not need to be preserved so Dherbs.Com does not and will not use preservatives in any of its formulas. Fillers? Many herbal companies use fillers in their formulas as a way to cut down on giving the customer 100% herbal content. Dherbs.Com is against this custom. Fillers may help the encapsulation process by making a formula more dense for encapsulation, but fillers have no nutritional content so when you add them to herbal compounds, they take away from the compound. Fillers help the encapsulation company and herbal company, but not the customer. Fillers water down the product! Dherbs.Com is against this process and custom. Binders? Dherbs.om does not use binders as we have no need for binders. Many herbal companies use binders to help certain ingredients bind together, but at Dherbs.Com, we use 100% herbal content and so our ingredients naturally bind together. Additives Dherbs.Com does not use any additives in any of its formulas. Additives water down the product and take away from the efficacy of a product that utilizes natural compounds. Additives help herbal companies save money by giving the customer less herb per capsule or tablet. Solvents? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no chemical solvents in the use of its liquid herbal extracts or crystal elixirs. Our extracts are uniquely made via natural agitation (by human hand) and natural sunlight (solar energy) and our elixirs are also made by human hand and exposed to moon and sunlight. It takes us approximately two (2) weeks to produce a liquid extract compound because Nature requires time to produce what she produces. However, other herbal companies are like major fast food restaurants and need a quick supply of products for their standard of convenience and thus use harmful chemical solvents to quickly produce their herbal liquid extracts. At Dherbs.Com, though convenience is important to us, however, we won’t compromise the integrity of our products to help people get a quick fix and to make a quick buck. Patience is a requisite of Nature and Dherbs.Com is in tune with Nature. Dherbs.Com will NEVER use chemical solvents in the production of its herbal liquid extracts or crystal elixirs. Standardization? Dherbs.Com does not utilize standardization in any of its formulas. Standardization is an unnatural process whereby a standardized herb provides uniformity of a single plant chemical. A standardized extract delivers a quantified and measurable level of the targeted active ingredient (major alkaloid) in every serving and in which this active ingredient is considered by science to be the key ingredient responsible for the herbs health benefits. Other herbal companies trust man-made science, but Dherbs.Com trusts in and relies upon Nature. Other Ingredients? The phrase “other ingredients†is simply an umbrella term for “additives†and other herbal companies use other ingredients (i.e., magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, rice powder, stearic acid, etc.) in their formulas to simply cut the volume of herbs in their formulas. Other ingredients take up space or room in the capsule or tablet and this allows the company to save money while giving their customers a watered down product. Are Dherbs.Com Herbs Safe To Take? Absolutely! It’s like asking, “is real food (i.e. fruits and vegetables) safe to eat? Herbs are noble foods in powdered or liquid form. They are 100% organic, digestible, and assimilable by the human body (unlike harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs which toxify the human body). People should actually ask their doctors “are these drugs safe to take?†instead of asking about herbs being safe to take. It is drugs (legal drugs, O-T-C) that kill hundreds of thousands of people per year whereas 0% herbs are killing people per year. Can You Take Other Dherbs.Com Products Together? Of course (unless you are performing one of our kits and regimens)! That’s like asking can you eat lettuce with tomatoes and carrots in a salad! If you are not performing one of our kits and regimens, i.e. Full Body Detox, Anti-Viral, or Weight Release, you can take our formulas together. You can drink our teas before or after taking our capsule formulas. It’s actually best to space out the formulas, but if you need to take everything together, you can. You have free will here and it will not hurt you or mess up the efficacy of the herbs. Not at all!

    Q: I was diagnosed with Sebhorric Dermatitis about a year ago and everything the dermatologist has prescribed has not made any impact on my condition. I have broken out with bumps all over my face (mainly) and a few areas of my arms and chest and sometimes they itching is really bad. I am currently taking an antibiotic (Doryx), using a face wash (Ovace Plus), using a face gel (Ziana), shampoo (Loprox) and an ointment for my scalp (Betamethasone). She also prescribed a pill for itching when needed (Attarax), which doesn't really help. Can you suggest an herb or one of your products that will cure my condition? Please help!!

    A:

    1. Detox (see FULL BODY DETOX) 2. Change your diet (during detox and after) 3. Use bentonite clay 2-3 days per week (available at health food stores) 4. Apply Oz Oil: daily 5.

Your Friends Affect Your Health A Lot More Than You Think

A new study asserts that interpersonal dynamics deserve our attention, not only because friendships make us feel good, but because they actually play a large role in our health, well-being and even survival.

In addition to being under-appreciated, friendships may be misunderstood, according to the new paper, a summary of all the literature to date on the effect of relationships on health, published online in the Personality and Social Psychology Review.
