Little Soap Company was born out of a desire to create genuine cruelty free, natural soap- and to make it accessible to all. We want to help more of you reduce the amount of chemicals you unwittingly rub into your skin. We want to educate, advise and guide you towards a cleaner, more ethical lifestyle. We want your whole family to enjoy our products safe in the knowledge they are choosing products made from only the best natural ingredients. Here are just three little reasons why natural soap is best for the whole family- even babies.
Natural soap contains no nasty chemicals
When it comes to your baby’s skin, you need to be really careful about the products that you use. Infant skin has fewer layers than adult skin, so it’s more delicate and therefore more easily irritated. Whatever you put onto the skin is absorbed much more quickly by the body, and that means that if the soap you use contains chemicals, all of those artificial nasties are being absorbed by the body. Yuk!
Our natural soap will never contain any nasty additives that could be potentially harmful to you, your baby or the rest of your family’s skin. We use mostly organic and/ or natural ingredients in our products and any synthetic materials that we do use are there only when absolutely necessary- and definitely only if they are not only safe to use, but unsafe to exclude too. Please read more about this here.
With this in mind, you can see why we believe that natural soap is the BEST option for the whole family when it comes to protecting skin health and overall wellbeing. Keep it pure, keep it simple, keep it natural.
We recommend: Un-perfumed organic bar soap for sensitive skin– perfect for the whole family and long lasting too. For older children, why not also try our Organic concentrated Pure English Lavender bubble bath– just a splash in the tub to help promote a restful night’s sleep for all.
Natural Soap is a great budget option
Most families are looking to cut down the bill when it comes to grocery shopping, and one of the biggest expenses is often toiletries. How many bottles of shower gel does your household get through each month? And how many plastic bottles are you accumulating throughout the average year? When you start to really think about it, the figures begin to add up considerably!
One of our favourite things about using natural bar soap is not only the impact on our wallets, but on the planet too. A humble bar of soap is likely to last a lot longer than a bottle of liquid soap, and ours come with more eco-friendly packaging too. In fact, not only will you need to buy less (and save on your overall household expenses) but you’ll also be doing your bit to help reduce your family’s carbon footprint too. Natural bar soap is kind to skin (see point above) and can be used on both the body and the face by the whole family- so it’s going to take up less room that countless bottles for each family member in the bathroom cabinet too. See this post for more information on the reasons why bar soap is great for facial skin care too.
Our natural soap helps to promote overall skin health for older skin too
Lack of chemicals aside, our natural soaps are packed full of really carefully chosen ingredients, selected specially to help improve overall
skin health- for every member of your family. Our un-perfumed bars are excellent for very young and/ or sensitive skin- so those of you with skin conditions such as eczema can use them safely.
We also know how important it is to look after the skin as we get older too. As your children grow, the changes that occur in the body are often represented in the skin, and a good skincare routine is essential for not only maintaining health on the outside, but on the inside too. When we take care of our bodies, we take care of our minds too. Having access to natural ingredients when it comes to skincare is vital as your children move through their teens, and it’s just as important for you, too. Our skin’s needs change as we grow older, but the fact will always remain that natural vs chemicals is a no-brainer when it comes to the products we use in the bathroom.
We recommend: our fantastic sensitive facial bar with chamomile and calendula essential oil for calming skin irritations and leaving the skin feeling soothed and hydrated. Also try our amazing natural sensitive bar soap with shea for an extra hydration all-over boost- this can also be used on the face.
