Why salt soaps?
Sea salt is loaded with minerals - magnesium, potassium, calcium and even more depending on where it is harvested. Think Himalayan or Dead Sea Salt. Salt is drawing, purifying and amazing for fighting acne. It helps to restore the skin's natural oil balance which fighting bacteria. If you get pimples in summer from the heat and sunscreen, salt bars will help to cleanse all of that away.
Will salt soaps dry my skin out?!
You'd think so but (science facts!) salt is hydrophilic, meaning it attracts moisture from the air.
Combine that with the Glycerin, which is naturally present in handmade soap and like salt, has hydrophilic properties. Glycerin is also a humectant - which allows the skin to retain moisture.
Hydrophilic and humectant = a gentle soap that leaves your skin feeling AMAZING. Soft, smooth and not at all dry.
Do they work the same as a regular soap?
Sort of. You will lather it up and wash with the foam as per normal but I find it's the lather that's quite different to normal. It's like a foamy cloud - puffy and light but somehow without giant bubbles. When massaged into the skin, it looks like lotion. It rinses away cleanly and just feels different from regular handmade soap. These are my go-to body soaps during the hot, sticky summer months. They also last SO LONG in the shower. Even in a family situation where lots of people are using the same soap.
Are salt soaps really scratchy?
No, it's more like washing yourself with a smooth rock! To get the longest lifespan out of all handmade soap, we do recommend lathering it up and washing with the lather, not rubbing the bar directly on the skin. So that will also help avoid any scratches, especially if there are larger decorative salts on top of the bar. But in general, I've not noticed any scratchiness from salt bar soap.
