Let’s dive into the world of all-natural cleansing body bars, exploring their benefits, ingredients, and why they're a must-have in your skincare routine.

Is there 100% natural soap?

First, what does “all-natural” mean when describing our body bar? There is no official regulation of this term, unlike 100% organic, which demands strict certification and verification processes. That leaves room for a lot of misinformation in the market.

We pride ourselves in using whole ingredients only, no synthetics or preservatives, and no water. That leaves the ingredients to speak for themselves, contributing to a healthier you.

In our Lavender Oat Body Bar, we include the organic ingredients of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil, Raw Fair Trade Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Gluten-Free Oat Flour. Avocado Oil and Lavender Essential Oil round out our formula.

That’s it. A no-nonsense, cleansing body bar designed to soften and clean your skin.

Are natural cleansing body bars better for you?

Yes! We feel strongly about this. Natural cleansing body bars and soaps minimize exposure to potential irritants and toxins. 

Test yourself. Flip over a soap package at home or in the store. Do you recognize each ingredient? Can you even pronounce them all? Do you know for sure that you want each of them on your skin and potentially absorbed into your body?

Many of these ingredients made their way into commercial soaps for a singular reason: they are cheaper than the natural ingredients they mimic. This doesn’t mean they are more or less effective, just less expensive to manufacture.

Rather than artificial or abrasive exfoliants, we use organic, gluten-free oat flour for a soft, bumpy oatmeal texture. Instead of synthetic fragrances, our blend of botanicals offers a scent that is sweet floral, herbaceous, fresh, and light, with a balsamic undertone.

Many commercial body bars and soaps hold the potential to irritate the skin. We designed our Lavender Oat Body Bar for all skin types.

How Natural Cleansing Body Bars Treat Your Skin

Let’s get a bit scientific. To understand how and why truly natural soaps are better for your skin, we need to look under a microscope.

What is the skin microbiome?

The skin microbiome refers to the community of microorganisms that reside on the skin's surface. This includes bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mites. Together, they play an important role in maintaining skin health by providing a physical and chemical barrier. This helps prevent the overgrowth of harmful microorganisms.

Why is it important to keep it balanced?

A healthy skin microbiome is diverse and balanced, with different types of bacteria coexisting in harmony. This balance can be disrupted by various factors such as overuse of antibiotics, stress, improper use of skincare products, and poor hygiene. When the balance is disrupted, it can lead to skin conditions such as acne, atopic dermatitis, and other inflammatory skin diseases.

Research has shown that the skin microbiome is unique to each individual and can vary based on factors such as age, gender, diet, and lifestyle.

How do you keep the microbiome healthy?

Maintaining a healthy skin microbiome involves several key steps, including avoiding an overuse of antibiotics, maintaining a healthy diet, and reducing stress. Gentle cleansing and moisturizing are equally important and the most in your control each day. 

Regular cleansing is important for removing dirt and oils from the skin without stripping it of its natural oils and disrupting microbiome balance. Moisturizing is important for maintaining the skin's barrier function, which helps to protect against harmful substances and dehydration. Regular use of a moisturizer can help to keep the skin hydrated and maintain a healthy skin microbiome.

Bambu Earth Soap Origins

Our earliest days were sparked by a passion for homemade soaps.

We learned about the harmful ingredients in products and the negative impacts that certain ingredients have on our planet and the people who harvest them. This inspired us to make our soap from scratch, sourcing every ingredient herself.

We became students again, studying everything we could about the skin, herbalism as it relates to the skin and the relationship between ingredients. That was over a decade ago.

As we expanded more broadly into skincare, the key was simple formulations using ingredients that have been trusted for centuries. The ingredients aren't revolutionary or patented. They are straight from the earth, simple, trustworthy. And they actually work.

Bambu Earth started in a kitchen, expanded into a garage, grew into a studio, and finally graduated into the current production facility.

Skincare doesn't have to be complicated. Nature is nourishing.
