    Organic is a marketing term designed to fleece your money from you.

    Soap is usually fat (lard) and alkali salts (glycerol). As you can see "organic" is just a way to fleece you.

    You may wish to study on how emulsifiers work.

    yeah but I'm looking for products that arent loaded with chemicals that are known to be bad. Regular soaps are not good not just because of the chemicals in it but also the fact that glyceine is a byproduct of the making of soap that gets discarded from the process, unless you get glycerine soap. Regular soap strips the moisture from your skin,,,glycerine pulls moisture from the air making it much better for skin.

    I'd just like to know peoples take on products that are more natural, not necessarily completely organic.

    Just like in most markets, there are very reputable and ethical companies in the organic hair, skin, and bath products.

    I like Zia products, and MyChelle Dermaceuticals.

    I use both Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash and Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo. Both are organic, but I don't care about that. I use them because they do not contain sodium laureth sulfates that can irritate skin. Also they are very inexpensive.

    Some of the best soaps are the milk or shea butter soaps made by Pre De provance (sp) I've been using the milk soap for years. What most people dont understand is that when your in the shower you inhale steam that has this steam also has residual vapors from chemicals used to make the soap, sodium laureth, methylparabin just to mention a few chemicals, you also absorb this thru your subcutaneous tissue. Think about it

    If I use soap like dial or lever2000 my skin reacts to it by drying out, not because I have skin problems, it's harsh and loaded with chemicals
