Here’s Why Natural Hand Wash (Soap and Water) Is Enough To Kill Viruses
It’s no secret that things are feeling quite strange right now, but in today’s article we hope we can lift your spirits and share a simple way you can keep yourself and your family protected during this time.
In the midst of the panic, many seem to be rushing out and purchasing every antibacterial product they can get their hands on. What they don’t realize, however, is that COVID-19 is a virus, not bacteria. While hand sanitizers can help to break apart the proteins in a virus, regular soap and water is just as effective at destabilizing and deactivating the virus so it no longer poses a threat.
This article by National Geographic explains, “Soap works so effectively because its chemistry pries open the coronavirus’s exterior envelope and causes it to degrade. These soap molecules then trap tiny fragments of the virus, which are washed away in water.”
Of course, all that lathering up can dry out your hands, so why not invest in one of our high quality bar soaps that will nourish your skin while it cleans?
Keep reading to learn why natural soap bars are best, and for 2 unique characteristics that truly make our soap stand apart from those conventional bars!
Why natural hand wash is best
You really can’t go wrong with small batch, handcrafted soap bars. Natural soap, like ours, will never contain harmful chemicals such as parabens and sulfates.
You will also never find a common antibacterial agent called triclosan in our soaps. This ingredient is a known endocrine disruptor, and we don’t think you should be worrying about your health and hormonal imbalances when you are innocently lathering up your hands or body.
We also include a few very special ingredients in our soap that provide a heap of excellent benefits, but you’ll have to keep reading to learn more!
We add Spent brewer’s grain to our bar soap!
Our regrained soap is pretty cool, and we are excited to tell you all about it! We add spent brewer’s grain, an environmentally-friendly choice of exfoliator, created with upcycled materials, that will provide an effective, yet gentle exfoliation for baby soft, glowing skin from head to toe!
The extra bit of texture is also great for sloughing off bacteria and viruses so keep one in the shower and at your sink!
Nourishing ingredients ensure your skin stays hydrated
Sure, many natural bars may contain hydrating oils and butters, and while ours don’t disappoint and contain ingredients including sunflower oil, coconut oil and castor oil, we also include two other very special ingredients…
We include hop essential oil, made from the flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant, to infuse your skin with potent anti-inflammatory properties to reduce skin scarring and leave your skin looking healthier than ever before.
We also add hemp seed oil for its powerful moisturizing benefits thanks to the rich array of fatty acids it contains. Hemp seed oil contains a high percentage of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids that are capable of deep moisturization of the skin.
Our soap bars are packed in phytonutrients, plant actives that tone and soften the skin, and antioxidants to keep it youthful, bright and protected!
Be sure to lather up and scrub your hands, your wrists, between your fingers and under your nails for at least 20 seconds before rinsing.
Our hearts are with you all and while you may be physically apart from your loved ones you are connected in spirit. Be sure to keep in touch with everyone you care about daily via texting, Facetime or even a simple phone call.
