Understanding the Benefits of Natural, Handmade, Essential Oil Soaps

Understanding the Benefits of Natural, Handmade, Essential Oil Soaps

The modern consumer is more health conscious than ever before and demands healthier options for all facets of their life – Maison Rose is equipped to satisfy that desire. We all know how important it is to nourish our bodies with healthful, organic foods while minimizing or avoiding exposure to herbicides and synthetic chemicals. When we don't take care of ourselves, the apparent ripple effect of health complications stumbles upon us.

We can assume that same principle of food and apply it to the everyday products used on our bodies - soaps in particular which, of course, we aren't meant to ingest unless your mother made you wash your mouth out with it after cursing! 

Being conscious about what we eat and use on our bodies can bring about wellness or the opposite over time. Let's dive in to read about Maison Rose's soaps!


Repeatedly throughout scientific research, it has been concluded that our bodies slowly absorb the substances we consistently use on our bodies. Think about it - we habitually lather, scrub and bathe with a product we arbitrarily trust yet may know very little about. Here's a thought - if you examine the label on most of the soaps sold at the local drug store, you might learn a thing or two about what type of mysterious ingredients they are comprised of; ones that sound like they're straight out of a meth lab!

Some ingredients to be wary of are styrene, copolymer and methylisothiazolinone. While we won't delve into each of these and encourage readers to research the rest, let's talk about styrene. What is it? A colourless, flammable liquid used to make plastics and rubbers, and that's supposed to be used on our bodies?! Frightening. It's easy to pick up regular soaps off the shelves, which come across as natural through their packaging, branding and aesthetic. Still, if you investigate before you buy, you might think twice before purchasing regular soap.

Here at Maison Rose, we have carefully assembled a catalogue of purely organic, hand-made soaps that would provide you with the same cleansing feeling as regular soap, however, without the burden of harsh chemicals. Our Soaps Collection consists of soaps made from a combination of natural oils and essential oils from various plants. Let's explore some of our customer-favourite Artisan soaps.

Let's Go Natural!

As consumers grow in awareness, many are switching to organic soaps for their well-being. There is no doubt that organic soaps are better for you in an abundance of ways! Another great thing that consumers realize is that while they get their hands on a product that works, they're also becoming increasingly conscious of ESG (environmental, social, governance) principles. Major corporations in the consumer health industry generally mass manufacture their products most cost-effectively, often compromising quality for quantity. On the other hand, regular soaps' impact on the environment is devastating. Soap is essential, and you can expect well over $3 billion in sales annually, which in turn tells us that it is inevitable that soap will find its way into our water. These harsh chemicals end up in the marine ecosystem, which adds to the long list of threats to aquatic life.

When you choose our soaps at Maison Rose, you support your local economy and reduce your environmental footprint, equating to a happier, well-balanced planet. Aside from creating quality products, we strive to help improve people's lives by creating a vibe of relaxation and bliss.

Whether you are seeking to improve your health, pamper yourself, or create a soothing atmosphere, Maison Rose has a variety of luscious soaps that will make your showering or bathing ritual a great thing to look forward to each day!
