The skin doesn’t only hold everything in, it functions as a barrier to protect our body from toxic elements and infection plus it helps regulate body temperature. And because it’s our body’s largest organ, it deserves the best care. This makes choosing the right skincare not a vanity but a sine qua non.
One of the ways to achieve better and healthier skin is using organic skin care products and many individuals have started by shifting to organic soaps.
Organic Soaps vs. Conventional Soaps
Organic soaps are just as effective cleansers as conventional soaps but they are safer, gentler, and smell better too (plus they don’t harm animals or the environment).
Mass-produced soaps that are commonly seen in your local supermarket may contain harsh, drying chemicals and artificial preservatives that do more harm than good to your body.
For instance, scientific studies show that parabens may disrupt hormones, increase risk of reproductive issues, reduce fertility, and increase the risk of skin cancer. Parabens are also known to trigger skin irritation and allergies. While you might not see an immediate impact on your health with the use of synthetic chemical-derived soaps, daily toxin absorption will eventually lead to issues at some point.
Thankfully, organic soaps don’t contain any of this scary stuff. Organic soaps contain all-natural ingredients that are natural preservatives in themselves. These are made from plant-derived base oils, natural emollients, and essential oils that are built-in with a multitude of healing and antioxidant properties, repairing the skin without disrupting your skin’s pH balance which means they are gentler and non-irritant, making it the perfect choice for those with sensitive skin.
Other than the skin-healing ingredients innate to nature, the way organic soaps are made just makes it more healthier as you would expect. Most organic soaps are handmade using the cold process-method which creates a creamier lather for deep moisturization and preserves natural ingredients better. Cold-process also allows for careful customization and complete control over the ingredients for overall attention to quality non-artificial ingredients.
Choosing CBD soaps
Organic soaps can be customized just like regular soaps and you’ll find a wide-range of textures, scents, and mixes of natural ingredients to suit your preference and skin needs.
One of the most-sought after organic soaps in the market today is CBD soap. CBD is a potent ingredient extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of the cannabis plant that contains strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties.
CBD soaps may be a little more expensive than any other organic soaps but this is due to its encompassing effects that are touted as a treatment for a wide range of skin conditions, providing a holistic transformation in your skin routine.
Not only does CBD contain skin-friendly properties, it quickly gained ground due to thousands of anecdotal evidence of therapeutic benefits such as reducing anxiety, muscle pain, and insomnia. Although studies are still ongoing and there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support these claims, the positive reviews from CBD users have propelled skin care brands to infuse their products with CBD including CBD-infused soaps.
Are CBD soaps safe for your skin?
While CBD is growing popular at lightning speed, the confusion surrounding its safety seems to be growing at an equally faster rate. Because CBD is derived from the cannabis sativa plant, many people have associated it with marijuana which is actually NOT where legal CBD comes from.
The CBD oil in soaps are actually extracted from the hemp plant which is another kind of the cannabis sativa plant that contains very small traces of the psychotropic ingredient THC that pot is famously known for. Hemp is sometimes confused with other cannabis plants that serve as sources for illegal substances so some may feel iffy about its daily use.
If you’re interested in adding CBD in your wellness routine but still on the fence, one of the safest ways to enjoy it is in the form of topicals such as soaps. CBD soaps are pure, natural, and pesticide-free. And because CBD is 100% plant-based and organic, it is inherent as a skin-aid and cleanser so it’s totally safe to use.
CBD Soap Benefits
Natural soaps promote a healthier skin and CBD soaps are no exception. In fact, CBD soaps are considered far superior than any other type of organic soaps due to its cure-all benefits as well as its capability of soaking into your dermal layers much more quickly, allowing you to enjoy all its goodies at a faster pace.
While CBD soaps may not treat insomnia or anxiety like CBD ingestibles claim to do, its host of skin benefits have been proven to repair the skin and prevent it from further damages.
Take a look at some of the skin issues that CBD soaps are known to remedy:
CBD soaps contain CBD oil that are natural plant emollients and function to lock up moisture in the skin and boost hydration, giving your skin a more radiant glow.
CBD contains anti-acne properties that inhibit the skin glands from producing excess oil that can trigger pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. Its calming properties also soothes and minimizes redness.
Eczema and Psoriasis
CBD contains potent antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-itch components that relieves thick, scaly, itchy, red patches caused by these skin diseases. Its anti-inflammatory properties also boost skin cells to prevent further inflammation.
CBD in skin care is known to hinder free radicals that cause fine lines. Its anti-aging and cleansing properties reduces the dullness and lessens the appearance of wrinkles, making your skin look healthier and younger.
When combined with other natural emollients like shea butter, olive oil, and sunflower oil, expect your CBD soap to do even more wonders for your skin and your mental health as well. Knowing that your skin receives the best TLC will make you look great and feel great, contributing to feelings of overall well being.
