Soap plays an important role in maintaining cleanliness and hygiene, so it's no surprise that trillions of soap bars and solutions are sold around the world every year. But soaps sold in department stores contain ingredients that may be harmful to your skin.
Some of these soaps contain detergents that can cause allergies to the skin, especially in children. They also dry out your skin, making it flaky and itchy. This is why many people are making their own soaps right in the comfort of their homes.
Making your own soap allows you to control the ingredients you use. You can use ingredients that are skin-friendly as well as eco-friendly, something that is not common in store-bought soaps.
Homemade soap is tolerated by most people and doesn't cause any allergies. Most ingredients used in homemade soap are completely natural and cause no irritations. However, if there is any specific ingredient you are allergic to, you can simply chuck it out the next time you make your soap.
