What's the difference between the All natural & nearly natural soaps?

Welcome to the world of holistic wellness and skin care, where every ingredient counts and understanding what goes on your skin is paramount. Today, let's dive into the essence of essential oils and fragrance oils, and distinguish between "Nearly Natural" and "All Natural" soaps – each a step above conventional, mass-produced soaps.

Essential Oils vs. Fragrance Oils

Essential oils are natural compounds extracted from plants. They are obtained through distillation or cold pressing, preserving the natural fragrance and beneficial properties of the plant. Essential oils are known for their aromatherapeutic benefits, capable of uplifting the mood, calming the mind, or even providing relief from certain ailments.

Fragrance oils, on the other hand, are synthetically created scents. They are a blend of various chemical components, some natural and some artificial, designed to mimic the natural fragrance of plants, or to create entirely new scents. While fragrance oils are versatile and can offer a wider range of scents, they don't provide the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer.

Nearly Natural vs. All Natural Soaps

In our quest to offer choices for every preference, we present two lines of soaps: Nearly Natural and All Natural.

Nearly Natural Soaps: These soaps contain high-quality natural ingredients like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Organic Shea Butter. They are formulated for those who want a more naturally derived product but are open to synthetic fragrance for a wider variety of scents. For instance, our Nearly Natural soap contains fragrance and activated charcoal, offering the benefits of natural ingredients with the pleasure of diverse and lasting scents.

Nearly Natural Soap Examples Ingredients: Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, Coconut Oil, Canola Oil, Sunflower Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Water, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye), Fragrance, Activated Charcoal.

All Natural Soaps: These are crafted for the purists. Every ingredient is natural, including the scents, which are derived from essential oils. These soaps often include ingredients like Organic Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, and a variety of essential oils. They are not only gentle on the skin but also provide the aromatherapeutic benefits associated with essential oils.

All Natural Soap Example Ingredients: Saponified Oils (Olive Oil, Organic Palm Oil**, Organic Coconut Oil*, Organic Shea Butter*), Essential Oil Blend (Orange, Patchouli, Clove, Cinnamon, Amyris, Anise), Annatto Seed Powder, Rosehip Powder.

Both Nearly Natural and All Natural soaps are far superior to store-bought, mass-produced soaps. Common soaps often contain harsh detergents, synthetic lathering agents, and numerous chemicals that can strip the skin of its natural oils and cause irritation. Our soaps are crafted with fewer, high-quality ingredients, focusing on nourishing the skin and providing a luxurious, moisturizing cleanse. Whether you choose Nearly Natural or All Natural, you're choosing a soap that's kinder to your skin and the environment.

In summary, understanding the differences between essential oils and fragrance oils, and between Nearly Natural and All Natural soaps, helps you make informed decisions about your skin care. Each product we offer is a testament to our commitment to quality and wellness, ensuring that what you put on your body is as good as what you put in it. Choose wisely and lather up the goodness!
