Why I Changed My Family’s Soap (And Why You Should, Too)

As part of my new resolve to change our family’s lifestyle, one of the things I’ve changed is our soap. I’ve already shared why I stopped using regular shampoo for everyone (hello, Monat!)

Given the craziness of COVID-19 wreaking havoc on our lives, everyone is washing their hands so much more. I quickly went through my stockpile of hand soaps I’d bought at a popular chain on Black Friday last year, and you know what happened? My hands totally started to crack and bleed – especially my knuckles. My hands might of smelled good, but, my skin was paying the price from the chemicals and harsh ingredients.

Why I Changed My Family’s Soap (And Why You Should, Too)

I started digging into it: what in the world is actually in the soaps that I’ve loved for years?

  • Fake fragrances.
  • Allergens.
  • Endocrine disrupters.
  • Immunotoxic chemicals.
  • Chemicals causing non-reproductive organ system toxicity.
  • CANCER CAUSING chemicals.

Don’t believe me? Check this out.

^^ totally me ^^

Considering our skin is the biggest organ we have … I am SHOCKED that some of the things used in soap products are allowed on the shelves.

🚫🚫🚫 NO MORE!!

It’s some super scary stuff.

On our farm, I eventually want to make my own goat soap but in the meantime, I wanted to start using something safe for my family. A few weeks ago, I became an advocate for Crunchi and lo and behold: they have some AMAZING soaps.

I started using the body bar for our hands and bodies and the facial bars to keep my face nice and clean … and guess what?

My hands stopped cracking.

All of skin got less dry.

AND my skin got way less irritated.

And now: guess what? Crunchi is offering a 50% flash sale on my favorite soaps, so I wanted to pass that savings along to you!

This is the soap my family and I use now. I use the facial soaps and my whole family uses the charcoal body bars. Given the craziness with the coronavirus, it’s so important to wash your hands – and because this soap is super concentrated in bar form, it’s actually BETTER than liquid soap.

Wondering what is so special about these soaps???

Let me break it down for you!!

How I Keep My Soap Clean (lol)

In case you’re wondering what I use to keep my soap off the counter, without it getting all yucky and gross? I use a soap lift – it helps keep the soaps high and dry both in the shower as well as on the bathroom counter and it’s helped with extending the life of my soap, as well as keeping my tub and counter clean!

I hope you guys will take a look at the ingredients in your soaps now! Have questions? Let me know!
