Why use 100% natural Dorović soap to commercial soap?

Updated: Dec 15, 2022

Dorović Soap Vs Commercial Soap

The FDA defines soap as a product composed of fats and an alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (lye). This is why many commercial brands avoid the word “soap” on their labels. Instead, they use terms like “cleansing bar” or “moisturising bar.”

Cleansers made without lye and fat are actually detergents. The cleaning action is done by synthetic chemical ingredients known as surfactants. Synthetic detergents like dish soap, liquid soap and shampoos are very good at removing dirt and oils. Oftentimes stripping skin of its natural oils and leaving it feeling dry and itchy.

Cold processed soap differs from industrially made cleansers. They contain an excess of saturated fatty acids and glycerin which act as moisturising agents.

Over-the-counter soap is often made using a continuous flow method, where the soap base is reused over and over again, with filler ingredients added. Fragrance oil is also added, which companies are not obligated by the FDA to disclose, meaning these products could contain harmful chemicals.

Dorović handmade soap never uses fragrance oils or mystery ingredients. You can smell great and have peace of mind knowing you haven’t exposed your body to any harmful chemicals. Our natural soap recipes incorporate essential oils packed with amazing benefits on top of beautiful aromas. Lavender has skin-nourishing qualities as well as therapeutic benefits. Lemongrass is crisp and refreshing, whilst also containing anti-microbial properties. There is ultimately so much more to gain by making the switch to natural soap.
