Why should I use natural handmade soap instead of commercial soap?
Commercial soaps are not truly "soap" - they are detergents made from non-desirable ingredients. If you look at bar soaps in the stores they are noy labeled as soap, but often as "beauty bars", "deodorant bars" or "bath bars". Oftentimes they contain synthetic chemicals to make the bar harder faster, reducing soap scum, adding lather, inexpensive fillers, synthetic scents and colors.
These synthetic chemicals tend to dry the skin. Irish Twins Soap Co. does not contain ANY of these unnecessary ingredients. We offer only high-quality soaps that are good for you and good for the earth.
Commercial soaps are made using some of the cheapest ingredients possible, even petroleum by-products. These cheap ingredients simply do not have the same benefits as pure natural ingredients. Our ingredients are more expensive, but we are dedicated to the high quality benefits from using the good stuff.
Is Irish Twins Soaps safe to use for eczema, psoriasis, acne, or rosacea?
Yes! Many people who suffer from these conditions have found that when they discontinue the use of products that contain harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and irritating dyes and colorants that their conditions improve and clear up. Our soaps have skin-loving ingredients - you'll notice a difference.
