If you’re one of the millions of people who have acne, you’ve probably tried almost everything to get rid of it. But have you tried Castile soap?
This soap has been used for centuries as a way to treat skin conditions like acne and eczema. While it’s not an overnight miracle cure, Castile soap can help reduce redness and inflammation — as well as prevent future breakouts!
Here are a few reasons to give it a try if you have acne.
Chances are that you’ve spent a frustrating amount of time already searching for the best products to clear your skin. If so, then you probably know that organic ingredients are gentler on your skin than non-organic ones.
Why does that matter?
Well, your skin is sensitive to what you put on it. The gentler the products you use, the better they’ll help calm irritation. Going organic is also better for the environment and will save you money in the long run because you’ll need fewer products.
So, what is pH? The pH scale measures the acidity or alkalinity of a material. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Lower numbers indicate more acidity; higher numbers indicate more alkalinity. A low pH number is beneficial for your skin since it means that the soap has a high concentration of acid and isn’t harsh.
For example, imagine you’re looking at two different soaps in a store: one has a pH level between 5-8, and the other has a pH level between 8-10. Which should you buy if you were looking to treat acne?
The one with the lower pH. It would be better suited to treating acne than the soap with such high levels of alkaline in it (which would make it too harsh).
The next time you’re strolling down the skincare aisles of your local grocery store, take a look at all of the soaps. Notice anything? Most of them contain animal products.
On the other hand, Castile soap is made from vegetable oils, which means it’s 100% vegan-friendly! And, since it doesn’t contain any ingredients derived from animals, it’s not tested on animals either.
In addition to being kinder to animals, vegan soap is usually also cleaner overall, unlike a lot of other types of soap. When in doubt, always look at the ingredients list, though. If a product includes additives, dyes, etc., keep looking!
It can be overwhelming to find a product that works for your skin, especially if you have acne. There are so many different formulas available that it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why a good rule of thumb is to always pick products with the cleanest ingredients available.
At Clean Rebellion, that’s what we’re all about! Every bottle of our Castile soap is certified organic, with no unpronounceable ingredients that can irritate your skin. You can grab your own bottle right here.
