A co-worker of mine is always asking about whether my soap is safe (He has obvious issues about the goat milk thing lol). But recently he has proclaimed he is forgoing all soap/shampoo for safety reasons. Hmmm, only water washing?
I have to admit I am biased…I make soap so of course I want you to use it! But try as I can to find research (real research) on the subject, I just can’t. I’ve found plenty of bloggers who try the experiment and tout the benefits of it but where’s the real scientific research?
I’ve been making and using my soap for several years now and I have to admit my skin is in the best condition it’s been in. Usually winters are hard on me and I want to scratch all my skin off but since I started my soap I find I am clean but not scratching. I love a good shower. Nothing feels as good to me and the whole event. Winter, Summer, Spring of Fall I love the hot water, the soap, the scents and the way I feel refreshed when I get out.
Could I really imagine giving that experience up for just water? Nope, I am safe to say I can’t!
As a nurse I imagine I would get fired for not using soap when I washed my hands at work. And would I really want to put my patient’s at risk by potentially spreading germs?
What do you think? How natural could you go?
