Always read the ingredients on a soap label/cosmetic label before you buy.
For your information following are commercial bar ingredients: unknown and unpronounceable.
Lauric Acid – also know as SLS, this is a foaming agent and synthetic detergent, commonly used as a degreaser in shampoos. An unfortunate side effect of stripping your skin’s natural oils can be irritation and drying of the skin.
Sodium Isethionate – A synthetic detergent. Used in shampoo as an anti-static agent.
Sodium Stearate – A surfactant, which basically means it clings to dirt and helps water rinse it off.
Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate -A synthetic detergent, and may dry or irritate skin, especially sensitive skin.
Maltol – Primarily used as a flavor enhancer, also to create a sweet fragrance in some products. There’s been a study (on mice) that showed this helped them absorb aluminum.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine – A synthetic surfactant derived from coconut oil and Dimethylaminopropylamine.
Sodium Tallowate – it is tallow or beef fat. Tallow is a fat from around the loins and/or kidneys of a cow.
Tetrasodium EDTA -Used in place of parabens, this is a water softener and preservative made from formaldehyde and sodium cyanide. It also reduces soap scum and improves lather. Mixed studies found there about whether it absorbed by the skin or not.

What is the shelf life of SkinMudra soap bars?
WE RECOMMEND TO USE ALL NATURAL SOAPS WITHIN TWELVE MONTHS OF PURCHASE ESPECIALLY FOR SCENTED SOAPS. SOME BARS, LIKE THE CASTILE, ARE BETTER THE OLDER THEY ARE!
Always keep your soap bars and other natural products in a cool and dry place. If you are not using a soap bar, wrap it in a butter paper and keep it in a cool and dry place. Soap bars will remain good for more than a year or few years if they stored properly. Our soap bars shelf life is one year although they may last for a couple of years, if stored properly. . Natural colorants may fade with time but this will not effect the quality of the SkinMudra soap.
Why natural soap bars do not lather much like commercial soap bars?
Commercially available soap bars create lots of lather as chemical lathering agents & detergents are added in it.
Natural handmade soap bars, on the other hand are specifically formulated for high moisturizing & mild cleansing properties. The lather quality of our soap bars is more creamy lotion like. The creamy lather moisturises the skin while bubbly lather binds with the dirt and sebum on skin and washes it with water. A soap must have a balance of cleansing and moisturising. Our soap bars are the mildest you can find, as we have carefully formulated our soap bars that will gently cleans and well moisturize the skin.
