Each time you visit your local grocery store, you make choices. Organic or not? Processed snacks or fresh fruit for the kids? What can I get that’s both convenient and healthy? If you’ve already begun altering your lifestyle to make better choices as to what goes inside your body, why are you neglecting the products that go on the outside? The products you put on your skin and hair should get just as much thought as the food you choose for your family to eat each day, and at Salt Way, we are committed to a product that is as gentle on your skin as it is on the environment. That’s why we never use palm oil, opting instead for oils that are environmentally responsible and take care of your skin. To read more about why we always say no to palm oil, read our blog post here.
Because our soaps are natural and do not contain synthetic chemicals, they also reduce the impact your products leave on the environment. Bar soap also uses less packaging than a large bottle of liquid body wash, which reduces your plastic consumption (and that’s always something to be proud of!).
According to the FDA, antibacterial soaps are no more effective than using plain soap and water, and may contain ingredients that are harmful the environment and possibly to you and your family. On antibacterial soaps, they state:
Many liquid soaps labeled antibacterial contain triclosan, an ingredient of concern to many environmental, academic and regulatory groups. Animal studies have shown that triclosan alters the way some hormones work in the body and raises potential concerns for the effects of use in humans. We don’t yet know how triclosan affects humans and more research is needed.
Salt Way’s soaps are the perfect option for washing your hands, body, and face. Why expose your family to chemicals when it just isn’t necessary? I like to keep a bar by the sink for hands and face as well as one in the shower (Rosemary Mint is my favorite for my hands and face, and I love the Neroli scent for washing my body!).
The products already in your regimen are likely way too harsh on your body than they need to be. Our products will always leave your skin feeling moisturized and smooth. Salt Way’s organic, natural soaps are free of animal products, synthetic materials, artificial colorings, and other unnecessary ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin. Your skin deserves the best, most effective product available, and we are working hard here at Salt Way to ensure that you have natural, cruelty-free options that are as easy to incorporate into your daily routine as possible.
