Is Soap Safe For You?

All of us know that soap is a healthy pleasant product. There was a time when soap manufactured from natural ingredients, but now much of what we use in the bath owes more to the laboratory than to nature. What Soap bought from any local store can hardly be described about soap. These are some common ingredients.

A high quality of liquid soap, Bath soap, bar soap contains triclosan as anti bacteriological ingredient. The US Environmental Protection Agency has announced that the same chemical as a pesticide which could harm the environment. It is bad news for our new generation and upcoming generation that it is under suspect ion of causing cancer.
=Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) another ingredient of soap,  use as a foaming agent. If it Concentrations with a minimum quantity as 0.5 percent can also cause skin irritation. However, Some soaps have concentrations of up to 30 percent. Shampoos containing SLS have been proved for causing scalp and eye irritation, problems to hair and facial swelling.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) is milder than SLS that is used for the same purpose in manufacturing soap, SLES is a harmful chemical can cause damage to hair and skin and it is also cause eye damage of children. It cannot be metabolized by the liver and so stays in the body longer than SLS.
These are really dangerous chemicals in artificial soap products, so we should thin and be worried about what we are using everyday life. These chemicals are not only mix in adult soap, a few quantities also found in baby soaps and shampoos. No doubt, millions of people use chemical made products without think about health, and the manufacturers explain in their statement they are safe. If every user knows about used ingredients in it, do they really think to use that soap for their baby's hair with Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is commonly found in baby products?
There is not end here with harmful soap but there are alternatives to using artificial soaps, prepared from healthy material is available as are herbal shampoos and herbal soap. Here is a problem that is natural soap is more expensive than any artificial soap, but you may think it money well spent for peace of mind. Before Purchase I warn you to Read the small print on the packet, some product sold as natural soap or organic soap though it contains the chemicals we are trying to avoid. So how safe is soap? Most of it is not as safe as you may expect.   But don’t worry there are healthy soap products available those are herbal soap, herbal shampoo, khadi herbal soap and khadi herbal shampoo.
