Acne Soaps & Oils

What Make an Acne Soap Shine?

The diseases that cause inflammation of the skin, such as dermatitis, rosacea, acne, psoriasis, and eczema, are often caused and aggravated by healthy immune systems at war with synthetic chemicals. These conditions can be triggered by known allergens within the complex world of soap and skincare synthetics: the aromatherapy wanna-bes.

It's less expensive for industry to isolate a natural scent or chemical, then copy it synthetically for market. But laboratories are not fields, and synthetics is not natural. Organic, wildcrafted, and all natural oils and other all natural ingredients, such as flowers, leaves, roots and clays, are commodities, subject to disruptive market variables like weather, blight, labor disputes, inflation and political unrest. Synthesized ingredients offer more reliable, less expensive supply chains. Never mind that wondrously complex human systems are not best adapted to single, isolated chemicals, what Western medicine calls an "active ingredient," or that many of the synthetics used in skincare products are unhealthy.

Over 1200 synthetic chemicals commonly found in American soaps and skincare products are banned from these same product categories in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, and Europe. Check out Sean Penn's documentary on Netflix called the 'Human Experiment', which examines the health concerns and consequences of the 20th century's chemical revolution. Familiarize yourself with chemicals of concern watch lists.

Try eliminating detergents, fragrances, and dyes from products if you experience unwanted skin conditions. Body washes and shower gels are mostly water, and water-based ingredients require stabilizers and inhibitors to restrict the growth of bacteria and fungi. These synthetic chemicals frequently irritate skin. Don't wash or moisturize skin with alcohol- and petroleum-based products. Stop stripping your skin.

Read product ingredients carefully and rely on 100% all natural soaps and skincare products. Scent will not be all natural unless it is expressing identified. "Fragrance" is always synthetic, even if it's identified as "natural" fragrance. "Fragrance" is a proprietary label. Manufacturers are not required to disclose the ingredients behind that identifier. There can be one hundred synthetic chemicals hidden behind the word fragrance! As shoppers became better informed consumers, fragrance became the dumping ground for everything that skincare product manufacturers didn't want buyers to see.

It's just easier to use all natural products. Human beings have evolved on the planet with natural ingredients. We secrete enzymes to break down and use organic chemicals. The body knows what to do with nature! As well it should because skin is permeable. Why would you put anything on your skin that you wouldn't put in your mouth?

You don't have to. Natural ingredients are food for body and soul, creating instant luxury and lasting relaxation. 100% all natural skincare ingredients benefit the human immune system. Natural products moisturize skin without stripping it.
