Posted by Haris Ertsos on

There'a s lot of different soaps out there: antibacterial soap, exfoliating soap, handmade soap and everything in between. But there's a clear winner that stands out from the crowd - natural soap. Natural soap bars have a clear advantage over other soap types that benefit both your health and the environment. Here's 5 reasons why you should jump ship. 

Why is all natural soap better than regular soap?

1.All natural soap is made with essential oils, while regular soap is made with harsh chemicals. 

2. Get the richest, creamiest lather with natural soap.

3.Turns out those harsh chemicals can really do a number on your skin.

4. Natural soap is good for you and the planet.

5. Bonus Point: What's so special about SCRUBD soaps? They use organic ingredients.

Natural soap doesn't contain any harsh chemicals that can dry out or irritate your skin. In fact, natural soap is often packed with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E that actually benefit your skin!

Do you know what kind of ingredients come in regular soaps? Here's just a few:

- Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS): A foaming agent that can cause skin irritation.

- Triclosan: An antibacterial agent that has been linked to cancer.

- Parabens: Preservatives that can lead to health problems such as hormone disruption. 

No thanks. We'll stick with natural soap.

2. Get the richest, creamiest lather with natural soap.


Natural soap gives you all the suds without any of the harsh chemicals. 

This is because natural soap bars are made with pure essential oils, such as tea tree or caster oil, which create a far creamier lather over synthetic detergents.

Essential oils are also more emollient than synthetic oils. This means that natural soaps create a more conditioning film on the skin, which in turn results in a richer lather.

In a nutshell, natural soap does not only cleanse just as effectively as regular soap, but it also leaves your skin feeling softer and smoother.

3.Turns out those harsh chemicals can really do a number on your skin.

Remember all of those chemicals we mentioned earlier, that just reek of artificial filth? Turns out, these can effect your skin too - for the worse.

The synthetic ingredients found in your standard soap can actually cause skin irritation, dryness, and inflammation.

Particularly, if you have sensitive skin, or a skin type that is dry, then these soaps can really wreck havoc on your skin.

On the other hand, natural soaps are gentle and soothing on the skin. This is because natural soap contains glycerin, which is a natural humectant.

Glycerin helps to draw moisture from the air and lock it into your skin, so it's suitable for all skin types.

So, if you're looking for a soap that's gentle and won't leave your skin feeling dry and tight, go with a natural soap.

4. Natural soap is good for you and the planet.

Natural soap is better for the environment for a number of reasons.

First, they are made with natural ingredients that are biodegradable and non-toxic, making them much safer for the environment.

(Most regular soaps contain synthetic fragrances and colourants that can pollute waterways and harm wildlife).

Second, natural soap is usually cruelty-free and vegan, meaning they have not been tested on any furry friends. 

Finally, natural soap usually comes in recyclable packaging which helps to reduce waste. Plus, a lot of its packaging is made from recycled materials!

Natural soaps are made with the philosophy of caring for the planet in mind. This makes them the perfect choice for those wanting to make great decisions for the environment. 

5. Bonus Point: What's so special about SCRUBD soaps? We use organic ingredients.

Okay, so you know the endless benefits of using all natural soap bars, but is it possible to infuse these with even more quality?


At SCRUBD, we took our natural soaps to the next level by using not just all natural ingredients but organic ingredients too. 

Why should you care, you ask? Organic soap is made of ingredients derived from a farming process that doesn't contain pesticides or synthetic fertilisers.

Natural soaps are great, but SCRUBD organic soaps are the crème de la crème

Our organic soaps are made in small batches by a local producer in England. Plus, they are packed with antioxidants and vitamins to nourish and protect your skin.  

This means that our soaps are not only better for your skin, your health and the environment but are also better for the economy because the money towards the local producer stays within the community.

Why cleanse with harsh chemicals when you can soap up with nature?

Regular soaps are a household staple, but with all the harsh chemicals in most commercial soaps, it's hard to feel good about using them. Not only do they damage your skin, but they also harm the environment.

That's why natural soap is such a great alternative. They don't contain any harsh chemicals that harm your skin and the planet, the lather is richer and creamier, they smell incredible and they're cruelty free. 

In other words, there's no reason not to switch to natural soap.

Scrubd's organic and natural soap bars are the ultimate natural soap you can buy. They're infused with the finest, organic ingredients that leave your skin feeling refreshed and invigorated. 

Our soap is so fresh, you could eat it (but please don't!)
