Our philosophy at Ocean Bottom is to produce all natural soap.
In a health industry that doesn’t regulate its wording of “all natural”, it can be confusing for consumers. The all natural label is often used even when chemicals are included within products. As a consumer, it is important to understand what is in the products you are using.
Most commercially manufactured store-bought soaps are full of chemicals, which are typically detergents, as opposed to soaps. The body’s skin – your largest organ – can absorb up to 90% of what is put on it. Most women use half a dozen personal care products a day, exposing themselves to hundreds of synthetic chemicals. As the skin will ingest products and the body mass can store them, chemicals add up over time.
To reduce potential health issues, the safer and healthier route is “all natural”. At Ocean Bottom Soap Company, 100% natural is taken very seriously!
All natural soap has emulients that will help preserve the skin’s natural moisture barrier, preventing dryness and other issues caused by detergents and synthetic fillers found in commercially manufactured soap. The base of an “all natural” is olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil for a soft, silky feeling.
We use only ingredients that are found in nature, either ingredients that are used in their original form or that can be extracted from plants, for example essential oils or botanical (plant) oils. We do not use fragrance oils (chemicals for scents) or synthetics.
If you suffer from dry skin, dermatitis or eczema, you will find that all natural soaps have the oils to moisturize your skin. By using all natural, you will find your skin conditions will improve, and in some cases can be reversed.
Our all-natural soaps will not leave a scum film on you or your tub.
Ocean Bottom products are biogradeable, reducing the amount of chemicals put into your body or our water system.
