the 5 best artisanal soaps

What are artisanal soaps and how are they a better choice for you and the planet? Brinda explains with meticulous detail

The five best artisanal soaps you don’t want to miss out on!


Every morning you wake up and prepare yourself for the day. We all begin our day with a few personal care products like toothpaste, soap, shampoo, cream, & perfume. Have you ever wondered about the ingredients of those products?


Some of your favourite soaps that you begin your day with, contain triclosan, sulfates, parabens, and many other chemicals. Phthalates, which are used to hold fragrances have the potential to cause cancer. Moreover, the extra strong fragrance can trigger allergies, migraines & asthma symptoms. 


Parabens enter your body once they come in contact with your skin. They are estrogen mimickers and have the potential to cause reproductive difficulties. Sulfates make the skin extremely dry by removing the natural oil present. These are the soaps made in a factory with an intention to lure you through their luxurious look and fragrance.


long with harming your skin, their packaging and transportation are also harmful to the planet. From the usage of plastics to wrap to the plastics used in delivery, all of them increase the landfills.
