Organic soaps are soap products that are formulated with little or no artificial ingredients. Depending on any regulations regarding the branding of products within a given country, a soap product that is composed of at least 70% natural ingredients may be marketed as organic soap. However, many people choose to rely on commercial products that contain no more than two to five percent of non-organic ingredients.

Organic soap is available in the same forms as any commercial soap product. Organic bar soap is one of the more popular options, as the product is ideal for bathing. Along with the organic soap bar, organic liquid soap is an ideal option for washing hands in the kitchen or bathroom. Both types of products are available in health food and vitamin stores, along with many bath supply shops.

For people dealing with allergies associated with various additives found in commercial soaps, organic soap may be the ideal solution. Assuming there is no adverse reaction to any of the organic components in the natural organic soap product, regular use of the soaps may help to prevent skin irritation and any other side effects caused by the allergies. While organic soaps cost more, the price is more than offset by the decrease in medical costs to deal with outbreaks of the allergies.

Many people choose to make organic soap at home. This option is often a good idea for people who prefer to use products that are completely organic in nature. Because they can control what goes into the soap, it is possible to make sure nothing considered undesirable is present in the product.

Preparing to make organic soap at home requires acquiring soap molds, a container such as a crock-pot or double boiler, and your choice of ingredients. Depending on the complexity of the recipe used for the soap, it may be possible to create bars in a relatively short period of time. At the same time, many recipes allow users to choose any number of different fragrances using blends of herbs and other plants to achieve the desired scent. Currently, there are recipes for soft soaps, bath bars, and for exfoliating soaps as well.

Making your own organic soap can be a great way to express your creativity. At the same time, by using some of the more decorative mold options, it is possible to create soaps that are ideal to give as gifts. Since most formulas will accommodate the addition of different scents, it is easy to create bars of soap that will appeal to the tastes of friends and other loved ones.

Health and natural food stores carry many brands of organic soap. Though most are in bar form, there are several brands that make pure liquid soaps that have been manufactured organically.

I found a great organic soap at a farmer's market in my area. It works great, and is very gentle on my skin. If you are looking for a good organic soap, you should check out what local craftspeople are making in your area. You can find great items at low prices that work just as well as commercial brands.
