Great Ingredients To Use In Making Moisturizing Soap

By Ace Winget

Soap has a tendency of drying out skin. A lot of people choose to do soapmaking because they know exactly what ingredients are going in to the soap. Soapmaking allows you to choose your own ingredients, so you can create a more moisturizing soap than many of the commercial bath soaps that are available at the store.

Everyone needs showers. We need to bathe, not only for our own personal health, but because we have to interact with those around us. If you are bathing everyday and are using harsh soap, your skin will easily turn very dry.

If you want to do soapmaking there are a few things to remember about making a good moisturizing soap. First, making soap doesn’t happen easily for everyone. Trial and error are necessary.

It will take time for you to figure out what oils you would like to use. You won’t always instantly have a great outcome with your soaps. Be sure to have a realistic expectation that it will take time to master soapmaking.

Commercial soaps usually use animal fat in their soap. Fat is necessary to make soap, but try using vegetable oil instead. Vegetable oil is milder, and usually creates a more moisturizing lather.

Other ingredients can be used in soaps to increase their moisturizing capabilities. Cocoa butter is a favorite to add because of its tremendous moisturizing properties. It retains moisture and really helps keep the skin healthy and soft.

Apricot kernel oil is another favorite. It is used on the driest of skin. Apricot oil is a favorite oil for aromatherapy and massages as well because it is easily absorbed by the skin.

Almond oil, or sweet almond oil, is another great ingredient. Almond oil is full of vitamins that can help with the skin. Almond oil makes skin soft by working to moisturize dry and easily irritated skin.
