How To Choose The Best Natural Soap Online

How To Choose The Best Natural Soap Online

When it comes to choosing handmade soaps online, there are a few things that we would recommend you think about. Whether it is for yourself, or if you are buying a soap gift pack, choosing the right one can make a big difference.

Here are some of the things we think are important, and that might help you pick the best soaps or other natural skincare products online.

1. Read The Ingredients

At Forest Natural Skincare, we believe that if you are buying handmade soaps, then they should be all natural. One of the main reasons people buy handmade soaps is to avoid harsh chemicals being rubbed onto their body. 

While a complete list of ingredients might not be listed on every soap website, you want to be confident that the soap you choose is chemical free.

2. Choose The Right Scent

One of the more overwhelming choices between all natural soaps, can be the range of smells that you can choose from. Your choice will depend on what you are looking for in your soap. A choice such as lavender soap is a relaxing oil and scent. If you want to have a more invigorating cleanse, then citrus or tea tree oils are a better choice. If you take the time to read the description of products, then you will also be able to make a better choice.

3. Skin Irritations

While it is very unlikely that any all natural soaps will irritate your skin, different oils can help to soothe or moisturise skin, or even help reduce itching or other problems. For example, the Cacao butter and lemongrass soap we sell is known to reduce itching. while the sweet almond soap is soothing to irritated skin.

4. Buy Australian Soaps

We believe that if you live in Australia, that you should buy Australian made soaps. There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, you are supporting a local business. Secondly you can be sure that the soap is all natural. Lastly the shipping is faster, more reliable and has less miles to travel.

5. First Time Shoppers

If you are buying handmade soap for the first time, or as a gift, then you might want to get a variety of soaps. For yourself, this can give you a chance to try different scents and see how different soaps can make you feel. A handmade soap gift pack also helps make sure the receiver will love at least one of the soaps they receive.

If you have any questions at all about choosing between all of our natural handmade soaps online, the good news is, all of our soaps are a good choice.
