Avoiding Toxic Ingredients In Your Soap

toxic ingredients in soap

Toxic soap ingredients are becoming more and more common to find in your store bought, brand name soaps. What you may not realize is that there are potential dangers from these toxins that can significantly impact your skin, body and overall health in a negative way. Toxins in soap have been known to damage your skin and in even more extreme cases, your brain, liver or kidneys.

So why haven’t you heard about this before?

The majority of these brandname soaps leave these toxic chemicals off their ingredients list because they are not required by law to list them. Clean360 believes that transparency is key, which is why we disclose each and every one of our ingredients that we use to make our handmade natural soap.

To avoid the dangers of soap toxins, you should consider using healthy and natural organic soaps free from harsh chemical ingredients. All-natural soaps are readily available and are just as effective at cleaning as soaps packed with chemicals and toxins.

Below we identify most common toxic ingredients found in soaps that you should be sure to avoid when selecting your soap products.

Dioxane

Some people mistake Dioxane for being a healthy ingredient in soap because it’s a synthetic 21derivative of coconut, however, it’s a carcinogenic ingredient that’s toxic to the mental and physical body. Dioxane strongly impacts the brain, liver, and kidneys. Avoid this top toxin!

Sodium Laurel Sulfate

Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLR) is the most common toxic soap ingredient found in many soaps and bath gels. When SLR is mixed with other typical soap ingredients, it becomes a strong toxic and carcinogen. SLR is so dangerous to the skin because it damages healthy skin cells and causes skin irritation, which can lead to organ toxicity. Choose Clean360 and avoid this toxin!

Diethanolamine (DEA)

Diethanolamine (or DEA) is extremely sensitive to the skin and is a potent carcinogen. Pregnant women should be especially cautious when using soaps with DEA, as it’s a potential danger to the body and interferes with the body’s absorption of choline. Choline is needed for unborn children for their brains to develop properly.

Fragrance

Many soap bars and gels contain added fragrances and coloring to make them more enjoyable and attractive. However, artificial fragrances can be sometimes misleading and harmful. Choose all-natural ingredients to avoid the risk of developing medical problems, like dizziness, nausea, and rashes.
