4 Things No One Told You about Bar Soaps


Chilled winters means sneezing, coughs and fevers! You can protect yourself from cold by wearing sweaters but can you guarantee infections won’t grip you? Infections spread mostly from one person to other by ‘touch’ or ‘contaminated hands’. Common infections that spread this way are gastrointestinal infections, influenza, swine flue and hepatitis A.

Some forms of gastroenteritis can result in serious complications which can weaken the immune system. So always use a primary DIY vaccine – washing hands with hand soap or hand sanitizer and dry them suitably. Proper hand wash can help prevent the spread of the disease causing organisms

Problem With Bar Soap – Particularly In Public Places

Following are the reasons why bar soap can be a problem if particularly used by many people.

  1. Most soap cases get filled with water. Thus indirectly bar soap becomes contaminated with many harmful germs.
  2. This scene is mostly common in public places. So people are less likely to use if it is messy
  3. Contaminated soap may spread germs. This can be even more harmful.
  4. Bar soap can dry out causing less lather/foam. Dried-out bar soap can also develop cracks which can harbour dirt and germs.

So having your own handy hygiene like paper soap or a hand sanitizer can give you clean and pure hygiene anywhere.

If you are in a public place or a work area, it’s generally better to use pocket hand soap or paper soap than a bar soap. The benefits of pocket hand soap include:

  1. Hygiene:

    As the paper soap remains inside the soap cover unless picked out, it is less likely to be contaminated. Every paper soap strip thus taken out is pure; guaranteeing you perfect and clean hand wash.

  2. Right Amount and Less Waste:

    Pocket soap dispenser strips are just the right amount required to clean your hands. This also avoids wastage of water and soap.

  3. Convenient to Use:

    Such paper soaps give a clean and convenient hand wash. They can be carried anywhere unlike soap that remains sticky after a single use.

Eco- Friendly Liquid Hand Soaps

Bufin liquid hand soap is naturally manufactured with 100% pure coconut oil and 100% vegetarian ingredients. Being a biodegradable product, it is a safer choice for both the consumer and the environment.

“A U.S. FDA advisory committee found that use of antibacterial soaps provides no benefits over plain soap and water.”

Bufin liquid soaps offer a smooth, rich luxury feeling leaving a lingering fragrance behind. It leaves you feeling relaxed and clean after a hand wash. It contains no antibacterial agents or tri triclosan that can harm environment.

 “The main reason to avoid anti-bacterial soaps is its active ingredient: triclosan – an anti-bacterial chemical found in many consumer products, and it’s nearly ubiquitous in liquid hand soap. It is linked to liver and inhalation toxicity, and even low levels of triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. Further, the American Medical Association recommends that triclosan not be used in the home, as it may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics.”
