Liquid hand soap and dispenser.
At home, I prefer to use bar soaps since the ingredients in making bar soaps are generally cleaner and often times better.
I used to have dry skin feeling all the time regardless of how much lotion I used.
Until one day, my friend told me that some ingredients in liquid soap and sometimes bar soap too, would strip moisture away from our body.
Chemicals such as propylene glycol would dehydrate our skin.
As a result, researching ingredients in the soap became important.
She recommended me to use these soaps that were made with natural ingredients, oil and essential oils, and the soaps would be moisturizing .
I then had the lucky opportunity to attend a soap making session with my friends.
All we used was good natural oils (shea butter, olive or coconut oil), essential oils and lye, which was sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide.
Lye was needed for saponification, the process of making soap, converting oil into soap.
Since I tried the good soap with simple and good ingredients, I had never turn back.
No more dry skin.
I bought my bar soaps from art fairs or farmers markets.
