The history of soap dates back to ancient times when the Babylonians made soap out of animal fats and ashes. While each era introduced new soap-making methods, the popular soap- making process, referred to as the ‘cold process’ method, was not developed until the industrial revolution in the 19th century. Today, most soap manufacturers have adopted the cold process method to manufacture commercial and domestic soaps and cleaners. Traditional soaps are manufactured by using cold processes to extract fats. This process became increasingly popular in the 1940’s and 1950’s when consumer goods became an effective and affordable alternative to making home goods.
Today several soaps are available. Natural soaps have been considered the safest type of soap on the market because they do not contain dangerous chemicals that could damage the skin or organs of the body when ingested. While most soaps today contain chemicals and properties that are used offset the effects of hard water, environmentally-friendly manufacturers are focusing on the importance of producing eco-friendly soaps. After many studies scientists have discovered that soaps designed to clean are actually polluting our environment. Eco-friendly soaps do not contain synthetic chemicals that could potentially harm the user and the environment.
Environmentally friendly soaps help clean your home and your body without harming the environment you live in. It is a proven fact that Nature knows how to break down its own natural chemicals. Man-made synthetic ingredients are increasingly affecting the Earth and the way the planet handles the recycling of products. Eco-friendly soaps are 100% biodegradable, and are free of dye and phosphates. Many consumers are unaware of the fact that most soap sold in retail stores contains polluting chemicals that actually dilute the soap and pollute the planet. If you want to invest in effective soaps that are not diluted with filling agents, explore the benefits of biodegradable products that are chemical-free.
