The Science That Makes My Coffee Soap The Greatest Soap in the World
Why Most Common Consumer Soaps are Awful:
Almost all consumer soaps contain triclosan or triclocarban which have been registered by the EPA as pesticides. They contain a chemical structure similar to hazardous agents including dioxins, PCBs, and even Agent Orange. Using these soaps will also limit your body from being able to fight off bacteria on its own causing you more and more health problems over time.
- Contain Harsh Chemicals that Destroy the Skin
- Registered by the EPA as Pesticides
- Europe has Banned the use of These Chemicals in Cosmetics
- Strips Your Skin of Natural Bacterial Fighting Oils
- Limits Your Body From Fighting Off Infection
However the problem goes MUCH MUCH deeper than that.
A large percentage of consumer soap also contain Parabens. These ingredients are estrogen mimickers and once they are lathered in to the skin, the body mistakes them for estrogen. When our body perceives there to be an abnormally high amount of estrogen present because of the presence of these hormone disruptors, it reacts in the following ways: decreasing muscle mass, increasing fat deposits, causing early onset of puberty and spurring reproductive difficulties in both men and women.
Sulfates. These chemicals are used to create lather in almost all mass produced soap. Some common sulfates are SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) and SLES (sodium laureth sulfate). Sulfates decimate the skin of its natural oils and increase penetration of the skin’s surface. They are also dangerous irritants for people with sensitive skin or eczema and over time can cause long term health problems.
- Consumer Soaps Contain Parabens & Estrogen Mimickers
- Decreases Muscle Mass
- Increases Fat Deposits
- Causes Early Onset of Puberty
- Creates Reproductive Difficulties
- Decimates the Skin of its Natural Oils
- Dangerous Irritants for People With Sensitive Skin or Eczema
- Creates a Myriad of Long Term Health Problems
More On Triclosan
We could write a book on the dangers of triclosan. It is in almost all soap and long term use can lead to a laundry list of serious health problems. We urge you to do your own research on triclosan but here are some highlights:
- Creates dioxin, which enters your skin and disrupts your thyroid and endocrine systems.
- Children with prolonged exposure to triclosan have a higher chance of developing allergies, including but not limited to peanut allergies and hay fever.
- Triclosan impairs muscle function and skeletal muscle contractility.
- A Toxicological Sciences study found that triclosan affected estrogen-mediated responses, and many chemicals that imitate estrogen are known to increase breast cancer risk.
- Triclosan is a registered pesticide. This occurred in 1969, even then we knew this stuff was bad news.
- Weakens your immune system by inhibiting your body from having the ability to fight off sickness and infections.
The unfortunate truth is that as of now, the soap and cosmetic industry are not regulated properly, it is like the wild west out there. We are constantly pushing for more regulation but the industry has a stranglehold on the FDA.
