Hope Without Soap

Savon de Marseille soap

Could you go for 130 days without soap…washing your body with just water? Richard Nikoley gave up soap and shampoo about six months ago and reports that the results are amazing. His skin and hair are soft and silky. His wife comments that he smells good!

Nikoley’s post begs some questions.

1. What is Soap Anyhow?

Soap is made from processed oils. Originally these oils were animal fat or certain plant oils. Nowadays some soap products are largely chemical based. Soap, Drugs and Rock-n-Roll, featuring Miracle Soap god Michael Bronner, explains the difference.

2. Is Soap Necessary?

For years the advertising industry played on the deepest fears of women, suggesting that the only solution was to douche with Lysol. I believe the recommended procedure these days is to go au natural.

Soap, of course, isn’t really necessary – neither are baths for that matter. It seems that soap is a matter of preference and any number of Spiffy Moms prefer no soap.

3. When Do You Need to Use Soap?

And that’s all I have to say about that.
