The good, bad and ugly of Soap Ingredients

Hey everyone. I just want to give a brief description of some of the ingredients to avoid in soaps that have been popping up all over the internet. I make all my products from scratch and they are all sulfate, paraben and detergent free.

A lot of people are on the melt and pour wagon right now thinking they are going to make a killing selling soap that all they have to do is put it in the microwave melt it add color and fragrance and sell it as handmade soap.

These are not true soaps and are considered a cosmetic and per FDA laws and regulation may not even contain the word soap on the label as it is not a true soap.

So for those who want to be safe and have natural true soap do not buy products with the following ingredients.

1) Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Most of the soap products on the market today contain an ingredient known as SLS. That's an acronym for Sodium Laureth Sulfate which is a harsh synthetic detergent and foaming agent that corrodes in order to clean. ... And secondly, there are still many cases of laureth sulfates being linked to skin irritation and eczema.
2) Sodium lauryl sulfate
Is a good cleaning product, but is a skin irritant. It can cause damage to the outer layer of skin by disrupting the function of skin proteins and causing itchy, cracked, and dry skin.
THIS NEXT ONE IS SAFE!!!
3) Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
(SLSA) is a wonderful, more natural alternative to the harsher Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS) for making bubbles in your bubble baths, bubble bars, shampoos, soaps, and more. SLSA is hard water stable and is naturally derived from palm and coconut oils.
So please ask questions and never buy a product that does not have an ingredients list. And just know that most glycerin based soaps are not sulfate or detergent free unless they are being made from scratch.
I make all of my decorations on my soaps from scratch and they are all sulfate, paraben and detergent free.
