Why Use Unscented Soap?

Posted by Michelle Neathery on

Hey we don't judge, we know some people HAVE to use it. We carry so many lovely smelling soaps, but we do this too!

Soap is a product that has been used for cleaning for centuries, and in recent years, there has been a growing demand for unscented soap. While scented soaps can be enjoyable to use, there are several reasons why people may prefer to use unscented soap instead.

First and foremost, some people have sensitive skin or allergies, which can be exacerbated by scented soaps. The fragrance in scented soaps often comes from synthetic ingredients that can cause irritation, redness, and itching in those with sensitive skin. Unscented soaps, on the other hand, do not contain any fragrance, making them a safer option for those with sensitive skin.

Another reason why some people prefer unscented soap is that they want to avoid any potential interactions with other scented products they use. Many people use scented lotions, perfumes, and other beauty products, and adding scented soap to the mix can be overwhelming for the senses. Using unscented soap can help to reduce the risk of clashing fragrances and help those who are sensitive to smell to avoid sensory overload.

Additionally, some people simply prefer the natural smell of clean skin, rather than the overpowering fragrance of scented soap. Unscented soap can help to enhance the natural aroma of clean skin, allowing people to smell fresh and clean without the use of additional fragrances.

Finally, there is a growing concern about the impact of synthetic fragrances on the environment. Many synthetic fragrances are made from petrochemicals, which can have a negative impact on the environment. Using unscented soap can be seen as a more eco-friendly option, as it does not add any additional fragrances to the environment.

In conclusion, while scented soap may be enjoyable to use, there are several reasons why some people may prefer to use unscented soap instead. Whether it is due to skin sensitivity, a desire to avoid sensory overload, a preference for natural scents, or an eco-conscious mindset, unscented soap can be a great choice for those looking for a gentle and effective way to cleanse their skin.

Here at Little Bull Falls Soap Works, we use synthetic perfumer's oils, essential oils, and natural fragrance oils. We do not believe that the risks on any one of them outweigh the risks on the others, so we use them all. Be confident in knowing that anything synthetic is definitely phthalate and formaldehyde free & safe for use on the skin. We would NEVER use the junk - the cheap ones with fillers. But we don't judge. If you want unscented...we do that too! Check out our unscented soap here:
