Skincare Products

There are literally hundreds of different skincare products available on the market today and although some of them may work quite well, others are often nothing more than a nice smelling waste of time as far as good skincare is concerned. Many of the products, although containing some very potentially good skincare ingredients, are relatively ineffective due to the skincare properties in the ingredients are lost in the mass production processes.

There are some products though, like those made by companies like which allow the beneficial properties of their ingredients remain by making them by hand with no mass production process involved. One of the most popular of these products is the handmade soaps and there are several different varieties of those.

These handmade soaps are usually only made with natural, organic ingredients and as they have no mass production process to go through, have all the beneficial properties they were intended to have. Just taking one of these ingredients as an example, you will see all the benefits that are sometimes being lost in the mass production process and why, unlike the handmade soaps, they are rendered no more use than any other cleansing agent. The example of a beneficial ingredient used in handmade soaps is Shea Butter.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is extracted from the fruit of the Shea Tree which grows in West Africa. Extracted from the pit of the fruit, Shea Butter has been well known as a product that can take good care of skin for hundreds of years, by the locals, but it has only more recently been discovered as a skincare product by the west.

This is one item that is only beneficial in its original state and will lose its beneficial properties if processed. Among those properties is the ability to moisturize and condition skin. It also helps skin to keep its elasticity which means it is an anti-aging product, keeping the skin fresh looking instead of sagging and dull.

Shea Butter is also an excellent healing agent, able to help treat burns, wounds and bites and due to its anti-inflammatory properties decreases nasal inflammations associated with colds. It can also give relief for arthritis and muscle pains.

If used by pregnant women daily, especially after showers, it can help to keep the skin from becoming dry and later causing stretch marks.

Shea butter can also be used with babies as it helps to ward off yeast which is responsible for rashes.

All of these benefits come from just one ingredient that can be used in handmade soaps and so imagine what several natural, organic ingredients can do. Some people that have started to use natural organic, handmade soaps, have found that they no longer have need for some of the other skincare products which are often very expensive, even though their skincare qualities are very limited, if existing at all. Once you choose the handmade soap that seems right for you, you will no longer have to shop around for new products.
