How to choose the right product for personal care
It is considered that the appearance of the skin, especially the skin of the hands, reveals the true age of a person.
Today, our daily lives are difficult to imagine without thorough hand washing and disinfection, and it is very important to choose products that cleanse our skin thoroughly but gently. MARENCE green mud soap differs from many others in the fact that it contains freshwater green mud, which is ecologically clean and biologically active, formed in an oxygen-free environment for thousands of years. The mud is rich in organic substances, including a full complex of amino acids, vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, D, E and P, natural antibiotics and antioxidants, humic acids, lipids, fulvic acids, fatty acids and enzymes, as well as micro and macro elements. The rich composition influences the appearance and well-being of hand skin.
It is very important to choose detergents that are not harmful to human health. Ingredients such as SLS and SLES are common in cosmetics, shampoos, and soaps. Both chemical compounds are artificial strong foaming agents. In fact, SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) is a poisonous chemical that contains a dioxin-carcinogen (a carcinogenic ingredient). SLES, although less harmful than SLS, gets deposited in the human liver and has a long-lasting effect on human health.
Both substances strongly affect the endocrine system and hormone-estrogen levels, which are often the cause of such complaints such infertility, breast cancer, early menopausal syndrome.
Most soap manufacturers choose to use these substances in their products for the simple reason that these ingredients are cheap and easy to use in cosmetic formulas. Many dermatologists emphasize that in fact - a machine or dishwashing detergent is not much different from everyday shampoos available in stores - both contain SLS or SLES, which not only froths perfectly but also dissolves grease and fats - both machine oil and the one on human skin, thus causing a burning or itching sensation that can progress to serious skin conditions.
According MARENCE's philosophy and values - respect for nature and concern for human health, our soaps are made on the basis of plant glycerine (Vegetable Glycerine), which is essential because glycerine is a natural moisturizer, it gives the skin an immediate feeling of hydration, is anti-allergic, which is a perfect choice for people with sensitive and dry skin. After use, the skin will feel great, it will not be dry, but clean and moisturized.
As the foaming agents, we chose to use a complex of ingredients that gently cleanses even the most sensitive skin without any harmful effects. Such soaps can be safely used not only for washing hands and body, but also for cleansing facial skin. Thanks to glycerine of plant origin, valuable oils, and gentle cleansing ingredients, washing with MARENCE soap maintains the skin's natural pH level, makes the skin soft and provides a real feeling of comfort.
MARENCE soap is suitable for daily use. We also recommend using MARENCE hand cream after washing your hands to protect your skin from the environment, nourish it and moisturize it.
