Why use natural Dorović soap instead of commercial soap?

Transparency Matters: Understanding What Goes Into Your Soap.

Dorović Soap Vs Commercial Soap

At Dorović, we believe in transparency and the power of natural ingredients. That's why I'm here to shed some light on the differences between our handmade soap and commercial soap you find on the shelves.

According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), soap is a blend of fats and an alkali, typically sodium hydroxide (lye). Here's the catch—many commercial brands shy away from the word "soap" on their labels. Instead, they opt for terms like "cleansing bar" or "moisturizing bar." Why? Because these so-called "bars" often lack the key ingredients that make soap, well, soap.

You see, cleansers made without lye and fat are actually detergents. They rely on synthetic chemical ingredients, known as surfactants, to do the dirty work. Think dish soap, liquid soap, and shampoos. Sure, they're great at removing dirt and oils, but they often leave your skin feeling dry and itchy, stripped of its natural oils.

Now, let's talk about cold processed soap—the hero of our story. Unlike its industrial counterparts, cold processed soap is packed with saturated fatty acids and glycerin, which act as moisturizing agents. That means you get all the cleansing power without sacrificing your skin's moisture balance.

Here's where things get even better. Unlike over-the-counter soap made using a continuous flow method, where the soap base is recycled with filler ingredients added, our handmade soap is crafted with care, batch by batch. We never use fragrance oils or mystery ingredients. Instead, we rely on the goodness of essential oils, each packed with its own set of benefits.

Take lavender, for example. Not only does it smell divine, but it also boasts skin-nourishing qualities and therapeutic benefits. And let's not forget about lemongrass—crisp, refreshing, and packed with antimicrobial properties.

So, when you make the switch to Dorović handmade soap, you're not just treating your skin to a luxurious experience—you're making a conscious choice to avoid harmful chemicals and embrace the power of nature's bounty. It's a win-win for you and your skin.
