Handcrafted Organic Soap Versus Conventional Soap


Washing your hands and body is an integral part of everyday life. Our hands are the first part of our bodies to come into contact with all kinds of surfaces, so it’s important to keep them clean and free from bacteria, and our bodies need to be cleansed from sweat and oils that can clog up our pores resulting in dry, flakey skin.

Most of us head to our local drugstore and trust that the soap bars and liquid soaps we purchase are safe to use, but you may be surprised when you learn just what’s in your ordinary looking soap bar. Most commercial soap brands that are produced in such large quantities have a “melt and pour” method to make things easier and allow for large quantities to be produced.


Unfortunately, this premade base is full of chemicals that can actually threaten your health. Chemicals such as the antibacterial agent, Triclosan, can disrupt your endocrine system resulting in hormonal imbalances. Other nasty ingredients including artificial fragrance, parabens and sodium laurel sulfates can cause skin irritations and may even be linked to certain cancers. Because soap is such an intimate part of your personal grooming routine, it’s essential you use ingredients that will not only protect your skin, but your health too.



Here at TruSelf, our products are produced and packaged in small batches and formulated with organic and natural ingredients, so you never have to worry about using harmful products on your precious skin. Our new Uplifting Citrus Body Bar is no different, and in fact, is slow brewed in small 80 Ib. batches using traditional hands-on soap making methods (pictured in the photo above). Each bar is individually hand-cut, and ages for 2-4 weeks before we consider them perfect. The result of this process is an organic soap containing some of the highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on!

Conventional soap bars often leave your skin with that “squeaky clean” feeling, which is simply a result of drying out your skin, and stripping necessary oils needed to keep your skin soft and hydrated.


Our citrus body bar is completely unique in the sense that it is made up of a rich array of organic nutrient-rich oils to leave your skin feeling like silk.



Olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil deliver anti-aging antioxidants to keep the skin beautifully youthful, along with antimicrobial properties to prevent clogged pores and keep your skin clear and healthy.



Palm Kernel Oil and Castor Oil provide an all-natural lather, rather than nasty sulfates that you will always find in your drugstore shower products. In addition to providing a creamy lather, these key oils also leave your skin soft to the touch!



Bergamot Essential oil provides sweet-citrus, spicy and floral notes along with excellent anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate skin conditions such as acne or eczema. Tea tree Essential Oil provides the same attributes along with antiseptic properties to help reduce bacteria in the skin so you can enjoy healthier, clearer and happier skin! It’s clean scent is also perfect for balancing out the gorgeous citrus notes in this luxurious body bar!



Orange and Lemon Essential oils add a bright dose of sunshine to our body bar. It has been proven that the whiff of an orange or lemon peel can instantly uplift your spirits and brighten your whole day, so why not luxuriate in this happy lather before starting or ending your day?



The airy tart aroma of Grapefruit Essential Oil adds some fun when experienced along with the bright citrus notes. Unlike the sharp, intense smell of the fruit, grapefruit essential oil provides a subtle aroma that just works beautifully in this soap bar.


There you have it! Instead of covering yourself in chemicals and drying out your skin, why not cover yourself in love and natural, organic ingredients that will lift your spirits, hydrate your skin and leave you simply glowing!
