Do most foaming hand soaps leave your hands feeling dry? Have you tried the Thieves Foaming Hand Soap? It is so nourishing for my hands. I wash my hands a lot and they never feel dry.
Best of all there is no nasty Sodium Laurel Sulphate to dry out the skin and cause my eczema to flare up. No synthetic fragrance to mess with my hormones and no triclosan either. Read more about Triclosan and the other 11 nasty ingredients that we call the Dirty Dozen.
I even love the smell. It reminds me of chai. I feel like I’m being whisked away to a street corner in India every time I wash my hands.
Swap Antibacterial Soaps for Thieves Foaming Hand Soap
When it comes to cleaning our hands (especially post 2020), we want to make sure we are using products that are effective, but that don’t damage our health. Turns out that the benefits of using antibacterial hand soap haven’t been proven and widespread use of antibacterial soaps even has negative consequences for our health, including contributing to bacterial resistance. Some research shows that this resistance may have a significant impact on the effectiveness of medical treatments, such as antibiotics.
In fact, when it comes to our skin, we actually want some beneficial bacteria there. The same way that we want a healthy mix of bacteria to inhabit the gut, we want to keep the bacteria that normally populate the skin as well. It is a crucial piece to overall health!! Without this your immune system would not be able to properly protect you from infection and disease and your skin would be susceptible to a variety of skin ailments. Washing away all that goodness with antibacterial soaps is actually counterproductive to our health!
In addition, many antibacterial soaps contain triclosan and triclocarban, ingredients of concern that we’d rather avoid altogether. In fact, the EPA considers these ingredients pesticides! Both triclosan and triclocarban are endocrine disruptors – they alter the level of certain hormones in the body and change the way that these hormones work. And we know that healthy, balanced hormones are KEY to so many areas of health! Definitely not something we want in our hand soaps (or anywhere else for that matter).
Thieves Foaming Hand Soap Vs Conventional Soaps
Have you heard the term ‘greenwashing’? It is when companies throw catch phrases or use certain packaging to trick consumers into thinking they are purchasing a natural product, when in reality, what they are buying isn’t natural at all. Unfortunately the majority of the ‘natural’ cleaning brands out there do this, which is a huge reason we love the Young Living cleaning and personal care products! No phthalates, parabens, bleach, formaldehyde, or toxic chemicals here – just the power of plants!
Another big issue with conventional soaps and cleaners is fragrance. Fragrance is a very loosely defined term when it comes to use in personal care and household products. Fragrance and synthetic perfumes are problematic because companies aren’t required to disclose the exact ingredients in the fragrances. Even ‘natural fragrance’ is problematic. Just because something is natural, doesn’t mean we want to rub it on our skin (ie: formaldehyde – a naturally occurring compound that we don’t want on our skin!). As the world leader in essential oils, Young Living utilises the scent of the pure essential oils instead of fragrance, plus these oils have incredible properties of their own!
The young living thieves foaming hand soap foaming hand is made with only naturally derived, moisturising ingredients such vitamin E and aloe and are infused with premium essential oils, making them effective at cleaning, gentle on the skin and safe for the whole family! Unfortunately the majority of the ‘natural’ cleaning brands out there greenwash their less than stellar ingredients, so switching to Young Living hand soaps is a simple, easy swap!
Thieves Foaming Hand Soap is a perfect addition to any room in your home. This amazing product lets you pump, rinse, and get on your way without harsh, drying detergents. Plus, you’ll love the lingering citrus-spice aroma of our proprietary Thieves blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils.
Here are five reasons we all LOVE Thieves Foaming Hand Soap:
1. Gently cleanses and conditions the skin with a blend of Thieves, Lemon, and Orange essential oils, as well as aloe vera.
2. Leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed but never overdried.
3. Made with a plant-based, instant-foam formula of natural origin to clean the skin.
4. Instant foam makes it easy to foam and rinse.
5. Does not contain sulfates, dyes, synthetic fragrances, or harsh chemicals. I dilute mine so it lasts longer. I fill 1/3 bottle with the hand soap and the rest with water. Who else dilutes theirs?
