The Ayur By Nature Aloe Vera soap is made from pure Aloe vera gel with Frankincense essential oil mixed in it. This gives them the anti-bacterial benefits of a soap with the moisturizing and soothing effect of Aloe Vera. The essential oil gives them a natural and refreshing fragrance without the risks of strong chemicals mixed into the soap. This is great for your skin as it protects it from the effect of strong chemicals.
Most of the commercially available soaps today are not really soaps by their regulatory definition. They are more of synthetic detergent products than actual soaps. Ayur By Nature products are true soaps prepared by the saponification process using natural elements instead of synthetic elements and chemicals.
