I didn’t know the difference, a soap and beautybar to me is the same thing, right? Clearly it’s wrong (I’m writing a post about it, remember?)
There’s a reason why major manufacturing companies are using words like Beauty Bars, Moisturising Bars, Body Bars and the likes.
So the key story here is about Saponification. Saponification is the process which takes place by combining fats, oil and lye together resulting in soap and glycerin being formed. No other ingredients are needed to create soap, however other natural ingredients such as Shea butter and lavender oil can be added for extra skin moisturising benefits and to enhance the soap.
Manufacturers separate the most valuable ingredient, glycerin, which is made during the soap making process and either sell or keep it for more expensive products. Cheaper alternatives are then added to the soap instead like, foaming agents and chemical fragrances, which react the same way as glycerin. Therefore, when using a Beauty Bar daily, you are rubbing harsh chemicals over your skin, which are then absorbed into your body.
Most ‘soaps’ on the market are made from synthetic detergent products, and therefore cannot legally label themselves as a soap product? Manufacturing companies use words like Beauty Bars, Moisturising Bars, and Body Bars as alternatives to using the word soap.
The Shower Tower SOAPENIR is made from 100% natural and organic Shea butter combined with lavender oil, making it the perfect product to feed your skin daily in the shower or the tub. Soothing your skin with nutrients and vitamins such as Vitamin E, The Shower Tower SOAPENIR, moisturises and softens your skin every time you use it.
Shaped as Dubai’s iconic building, The Burj Khalifa, The Shower Tower is the perfect SOAPENIR gift for visitors, guests and tourists visiting Dubai. The Shower Tower retails for AED 95 and can be ordered online by visiting http://www.theshowertower.com or at outlets such as Love Shop Pray, O Concept Store and Dubai Loves.
This particular soap is so good looking that you may not want to use it. I would love to gift something like this when I go back home. You can’t get more ‘DUBAI’ than this!!
What do you think about this post? Would you be willing to change your loyalties to natural soaps like soapenir?
I would love to hear from you!
