The terms organic and herbal are the new fad for the correct reasons. Many of us take the organic route by including organic face washes, chemical-free cosmetics, and chemical-free soaps.
What is organic soap?
Organic soap is made of fats or oils, water, lye, essential oils, and natural dyes. Organic soaps also have one more benefit: they are made of ingredients that are produced with organic farming practices, which means farming practices that don’t use pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. So organic soaps are nothing but better natural soaps.
Why use coconut oil?
The coconut is a gift of nature, with its milk to smother our thirst and its flesh to feed the body and soul. Nowadays, there are many conversations about the benefits of coconut oil for both consumption and topical use. A recent study suggests that coconut oil used in coconut body soap enhances the skin’s protective layer function and also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Another study reveals that people who use coconut oil in their diet have lower rates of heart disease.
All this research might lead us to believe that the cultivation of coconut oil and its consumption is relatively new, but that is not the case. We are just rediscovering what has been prevalent for over a thousand years. Ancient Sanksrit narrative on ayurvedic products makes a point clearly stating that the use of coconut oil helps in healing the body and the mind. Coconuts have been grown all across the globe even before the birth of Christ. Coconut farming shaped early civilization in many regions and around the world. Back in World War II, the coconut was responsible for saving soldiers’ lives as its milk was used as a saline drip.
