What are Suitable Alternatives to Antibacterial Soaps?

Next time you’re shopping at your local supermarket, take a look at what ingredients are actually put in what we commonly refer to as ‘soaps’. Often you’ll find that they aren’t actually labelled as soap on the packs; large conglomerates tend to use terms such as ‘moisturising bar’. But if you do look at the ingredients, you’ll notice that chemically processed soaps and soap-derivatives can have side effects that you might want to avoid.

This is because they can never be legally claimed as soaps mainly because of the ingredients they contain and which are basically nothing but detergents! The makers of these products have diligently removed the “essentials” in manufacturing a soap and replaced that with harsh synthetic lathering chemicals; and to say the least, these scented appealing beauty bars are not only harmful for your skin but are abrasive for this planet too.


Why are these Soaps Bad for Us?


Often manufacturers of these kinds of products will remove the glycerin that is produced during the soap-making process. The glycerin is actually a health-promoting substance and is great for the skin. So much so that it is one of the main ingredients found in moisturisers and lotion that we ironically use to treat our skin after the soap has dried it up, or worse.  

Artificial colors/fragrances and synthetic lathering agents such as Sodium Laurel Sulfate can inflame skin for certain people and can be very damaging to the eyes, particularly for young children.
According to a study conducted by the National Coalition against the misuse of Pesticides (NCAMP), the ingredients found in some type of synthetic soaps are even capable of causing cancer. There are lots of reasons why you should not use antibacterial soaps anymore.
As well as being potentially harmful to human health, antibacterial soaps can also damage the environment. Triclosan, which is found in many of these soaps, is understood to leave trace amounts even after being treated and eventually finds its way to bodies of water. Being an unnatural chemical, it disrupts the process of photosynthesis for algae and other plant life.


What can be Used as Alternative?


Handmade natural soaps are the best option! Handmade soaps have balanced cleansing and moisturising properties which helps with cleaning and also takes care of your skin. One such example is goat’s milk soap. Goat Milk Soap is great for people with sensitive skin and has many dermatological benefits. It helps heal your skin allergies and prevents the usual rashes that might occur due to everyday exposure to the dust by helping to maintain our skin’s natural moisture.
To sum it up, natural soaps are preferable despite being harder to find and much less popular by antibacterial soaps. Check out Be Enchanted for a full range – you’re sure to notice the benefits!

The benefits of hypnosis for all the family

For many years hypnosis was considered little more than a party trick for laughs and entertainment, but today it is recognised by many medical authorities as a legitimate form of treatment for certain issues. Hypnosis can allow you to get over issues with stress, depression, allow you to feel more confident, quit smoking as well as have better relationships with others.

One of the more popular introductions to hypnosis is through the use of hypnosis CDs. These feature-packed CDs are labelled with assorted topics and allow you to pick and choose which aspect of your life you wish to improve. Some of the most popular topics include weight loss, happiness and self-esteem as well as smoking addiction and stress management.

Enter a higher level of relaxation

The CDs include a number of techniques to allow one to become fully relaxed and to attain a state of relaxation that aids the information and behavioural guidance to flow into your thought processes. This unique technique employed by Rick Collingwood – one of the world’s most recognised hypnosis therapy professionals – allows the listener to obtain a higher level of concentration and to take on the information contained within.

Accompanied by relaxing music and specific acoustic tones throughout, the range of hypnosis CDs allows each listener to become highly focused on achieving their goals. Hypnosis CDs are the perfect addition to boosting your lifestyle, if this is to stop smoking, to be more confident or to aid medical issues such as depression or insomnia.

Hypnosis CDs for children

One of the most popular additions to the Rick Collingwood hypnosis therapy CDs are the new range of specialist therapies for children. Some of the topics included are better schooling, overcoming fears and nightmares, as well as overcoming trauma and abuse. These CDs are tailor made for children and allow each individual child to find their own way through the CD course.

Children perform well with these hypnosis CDs due to them not being resistant to new ideas and new ways of thinking. In fact, children are still growing and learning, so what better way to aid their development than to allow them a path to their inner potential. Not only can hypnosis work wonders for children to reach their potential, it also allows them to work out issues and difficulties, too.

Bring out your child’s full potential

As more parents understand that medication is not the solution to many behavioural problems with children, hypnotherapy is a great tool in finding the underlying issues. Hypnosis CDs can allow your child to think freely and clearly and understand the triggers that may cause their behaviour and allow them to change their approach to stressful situations.

Rick Collingwood’s hypnosis CDs also teach relaxing breathing methods that are necessary to take in the informative and calming teaching methods contained on each CD. This can also help children who suffer from panic attacks or have reoccurring nightmares. Better concentration at school and a new outlook on healthy eating are also touched upon.

Hypnosis may not be for everyone, but it is a great solution for those who wish to take an alternative method when it comes to treatment. Hypnosis isn’t designed to replace medication, but designed to work alongside it to aid in treatment with clarity and relaxation. Hypnosis can be an unparalleled tool in pain and stress relief, to give you and your whole family another layer of support.
