What Is Vegan Soap and Why You Should Use It
WHAT IS VEGAN SOAP?
Vegan bar soaps are made from oils that originate from vegetables rather than animal fats, milk or other non-vegan sources. An example of the oils used in vegan soap bars would be coconut oil, avocado oil or olive oil.
WHY VEGAN SOAP?
Most vegan soap bars uphold vegan beliefs in the care of animals and the environment and are therefore not tested on animals which is a huge plus!
The Little Soap Company is 100% vegan and Leaping Bunny certified cruelty free, so in buying Little Soap Company handmade soaps, you can rest assured that no products are tested on animals, and the production process is environmentally friendly.
Vegan soap bars may also be priced at more of a premium than regular soaps. The reason for this is that animal fats are cheaper to source than premium vegetable oils, and the environmental and cruelty free element also adds additional costs.
IS VEGAN SOAP BETTER THAN REGULAR SOAP?
Well it all depends on what you're looking for! Vegan soaps tend not to foam up as much as regular bar soaps, but this is not necessary to achieve the same level of cleansing. Plant based oils such as olive oil and avocado oil are very beneficial for the skin. Furthermore, a vegan soap bar which contains olive oil can be used effectively in cleansing hair like a shampoo, leaving it shiny and healthy looking. Olive oil soap in particular is a multi-purpose bar.
Also worth noting and remembering, is that hand washing with a bar of soap does affectively kill the coronavirus and other viruses, thus keeping you safe. There is no proven need to buy special anti-bacterial products for this purpose. If you would like to read more about this see our previous blog post.
