Buy Handmade Soap
If you've ever used a good bar of handmade soap you're probably not going to want to go back to store brands ever again. Not only does handmade soap smell wonderful but it's also much more gentle on your skin than commercial brands of soap.
But I thought that handmade soap was harsh for your skin, doesn't it contain lye?
I used to make my own soap and this is one of the questions that would always come up in conversation. And the truth of the matter is that all soap is made from lye but to put it simply during the soap making process the lye goes through a chemical process to become soap and once it has went through this process it is no longer lye.
The soapmakers of yesterday didn't have access to all the wonderful products and additives that today's soapmaker uses. So their soap did tend to be harsh, In our grandparents and great grandparents day soapmakers used animal fat (lard) and lye to make their soap and this is probably where everyone got the idea that handmade soap is harsh.
Handmade or handcrafted soap smells wonderful and feels even better on your skin.
This is because it contains the natural glycerin that is present in the soap as well as essential oils and moisturizing butters and oils that have been added to pamper your skin.
If you've never used a bar of handmade soap before then one of the first things that you will probably notice is that it doesn't lather as much as a commercial bar of soap that most of us are used to.
This doesn't mean that the soap won't clean as well but a chemical additive is added to make the commercial soap foam and lather. This is the same additive that they also use to make your toothpaste foam.
Buy Goats Milk Soap
One of my favorite types of handmade soap is of course the goats milk soap.
This soap which can be found in all different fragrances as well as unscented is very gentle and soothing on sensitive skin .
One of the best places for buying goats milk or any other type of handmade and handcrafted soap is right here on eBay where you can find a huge selection of available scents and types of soap.
You can also find glycerin soap which is a popular seller for sale on ebay. The difference between the glycerin and regular soap is that the glycerin soap is considered handcrafted. This means that the crafter has purchased a block of glycerin soap and then melted it down and added fragrance, color and other items to make it more gentle and soothing to your skin.
