The Sodium Benzoate Debate

by @ Shea Terra Organics Shea Butter Skin Care and Argan Oil Skin Care: Blog Posts

The internet offers a depth of knowledge never before available. But where does this information come from? Can anyone write their opinion and make it appear to come from an authority or expert on the topic? For a few years there was “information” floating around the internet that lavender essential oil was cancer causing. People would call up and ask us to remove lavender essential oil from our face oil because it caused cancer. Then came baobab oil. It was reported to cause cancer as well. Who are the experts who start these unscientific scare stories? Often times they trace back to “business” people attempting to discredit certain popular ingredients in order to sell their own products.

When I first started formulating products almost two decades ago I was faced with the unpleasant task of having to choose a preservative to keep our products safe. Anytime water/ aloe/ or hydrosol is mixed with oil to make a product it requires a preservative to keep it from growing yeast, fungus and bacteria. I tested every single natural preservative along the way, and they all fell short of properly preserving products. There was a very effective, all natural preservative based on cinnamon. However, it caused a slight itch and the cinnamon aroma was overwhelming. Japonica (honesuckle) did not work at all. Some “natural” preservatives were actually found to have synthetic preservatives in them including parabens.

After a few years of testing I finally decided upon a preservative which was very natural but needed just a little bit of synthetic sodium benzoate to keep it safe from yeast and fungus. When used in one percent the preservative would deem a product to be 99.7% natural. Unlike many “natural” preservatives I had tested this combination worked extremely well at keeping lotions safe for years. Sodium benzoate occurs naturally in nature. In this preservative it is replicated synthetically. It has been proven to be a very mild and safe preservative which people have been consuming for many decades, and even more so naturally when consuming fruits.

Whole Foods has deemed the preservative safe for skin care usage, and ECOCERT has classified its combination with natural glucono delta lactone as a safe preservative for certified organic products. So what has spurred the internet panic about sodium benzoate? SODA. The kind you drink. Many of us avoid sodas because they are made with ingredients that can lead to diabetes and overweight. But cancer? Studies found that when sodium benzoate and vitamin C were combined at a ph of 2 they can potentially produce a compound called benzene.

Here is why the dangers of this does not apply to skin care and why health food moghuls like Whole Foods still deem the preservative safe for skin care. Benzene can be created when sodium benzoate is combined with vitamin C at a ph of 2. This is something that a lot of online articles seem to overlook. They often mention that sodium benzoate and vitamin C combined forms benzene without giving the whole picture. Skin care products are rarely a ph of 2. You would never want your moisturizer to be a ph of 2. This is equivalent to moisturizing your skin with vinegar. To date there are NO studies showing that benzene has ever formed in skin care products. If this was the case there would be plenty of studies showing this to be the case. Online blog posts and articles never mention the fact that there are NO studies showing that any skin care product made with sodium benzoate has ever formed benzene. There are online quotes of studies that show that sodium benzoate killed yeast cells which were used due to their similarity to human cells. Well, uh, yes, this is the whole point of using sodium benzoate. It is in the preservative to kill yeast cells. It is not surprising that the sources of many of these “articles” also have their own skin care products to sell.

So why bother using products with a preservative in the first place? Why not just use an oil or butter? While oils and butters are marvelous for keeping skin smooth and supple, they ARE NOT moisturizers. Despite frequently being mis-marketed as moisturizers, oils and butters are not supposed to have moisture in them. Moisture in oils and butters would cause them to grow mold. Moisturizers require liquids such as water or aloe in order to hydrate and plump cells. The issue with simply applying moisture on the skin is that it is quickly evaporated, rarely penetrating the skin. Otherwise our body would soak up moisture like a sponge, and we would literally drown. In order to hold moisture onto skin, thus making it available for cells to utilize, moisturizers are needed. They combine oil and moisture (water/ aloe/ hydrosol) together by binding them with an emulsifying wax which holds liquid on skin. Moisturizers are particularly important for aging skin which loses moisture rapidly. But all moisturizers need a proper preservative system to keep them safe.

When moisturizers are not properly preserved they form mold, yeast, and fungi in just a few hours. All natural preservatives sometimes work for a few weeks. Some are actually made with synthetic preservatives so that one thinks the preservative is natural but actually has hidden synthetic preservatives doing all the work. Our first priority is to keep our customers safe. Growths in skin care products can result in blindness, allergies and even death. We cannot use a 100% natural preservative that is effective for only three months and risk someone becoming deadly ill from microbes in a product which they cannot see with the human eye. Moisturizers are very important in keeping skin youthful. Proper preservation of these moisturizers is even more important. A tiny amount of synthetic preservative in skin care solutions which have never been linked to benzene is the safest way we have found to give you the best moisturizers to keep your skin plump and supple.

At this point I think it is very important to talk about the honesty of reporting preservatives. For years there have been companies that hide the preservatives that they use in their products. Sometimes they list only natural preservatives but leave off the synthetic ones. Sometimes they simply don’t list any preservative at all. For example, there are several companies that do not list the preservative used to preserve their aloe vera. Aloe vera MUST always be preserved whether it is combined with an oil or not. Aloe vera is usually preserved with sodium benzoate so likelihood there is sodium benzoate in a product whether listed or not. We ship our preservative to Texas so that it is the only preservative used to make our freshly pressed aloe vera juice so it is always accurately listed on our labels. Legally, when a preservative is used in a small fraction it does not need to be listed on labels. In addition, a company could use five different preservatives and since they can use each in such a small dosage they are not required to list it on their labels. That does not mean that your skin care product is full of preservatives, some which include parabens. We recommend purchasing from companies that list even the potentially undesirable preservatives on the premise that they are being honest. There are a slew of hidden preservatives in skin care products even in products claiming to be 100% natural.

How to Care for a Pug

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.

African Black Soap vs. Charcoal Black Soap: Cutting through the Hype

by @ Shea Terra Organics Shea Butter Skin Care and Argan Oil Skin Care: Blog Posts

African Black Soap vs. Charcoal Soap

Who knew you could wash your skin with a clump of charcoal? I didn’t. Oh, hold on. You can’t! Rubbing charcoal all over ones skin would only end up in a disastrous mess that requires using soap or oil to remove it. In other words, charcoal DOES NOT wash skin. So then why have black soaps become so popular, and why has charcoal popped up in skin care everywhere? The answer lies in one ancient soap making form invented in West Africa perhaps thousands of years ago. AFRICAN BLACK SOAP.

What is African Black Soap? African black soap is real soap. It is not a soap colored black with the use of charcoal to appear black. You’ve probably heard of the soap someone’s grandmother used to make. The method involved using the ashes of burnt wood, straining it through water and creating what we now call early lye soap. This early lye method has now been replaced by using lye created from positively charged salts. But in West Africa women are still producing an herbal soap using recipes passed down from generation to generation. The women burn local ingredients such as plantain peels, cacao pods and herbs into ashes. They then cook local oils of palm, coconut and sometimes shea butter into the ashes for several hours in large clay containers until the soap is black. This produces black powder. Once water is added to the powder soap is formed. Sometimes the women take the crumbles and cook water into it forming a paste similar to Play-Doh. This is real soap ready to use. Or they sell the soap in the powder/ crumble form. This allows the user to add their own water. Once water is added to the powder one has genuine soap. True African Black Soap is real soap. It does not need to be added to lye to become a soap as is the case with charcoal.

So why the charcoal craze? Being in the natural beauty industry for almost two decades at a time when selling natural products to people was near impossible, I have seen many beauty trends come and go. Charcoal products are one of those. It is my observation that charcoal based soaps and skin care products are a direct innovation of the popularity of African Black Soap. People began raving about the benefits African Black Soap had on getting rid of acne, getting rid of razor bumps and firming skin. The huge popularity of real African Black Soap and the difficulty to get the real thing led some to discover that if they add charcoal to soap the way we add African Black Soap to our soap bars, they could produce black soap and compete directly with African Black Soap. This trend continued to branch out into “detoxifying” face masks and creams.

True Story: I once knew a man in China who bought real African Black Soap from my supplier in Togo. He bought the soap several times. He would incorporate the soap into his soap bars. On one such order the supplier in Togo informed him that the money had been stolen. Sadly, the man might not have been lying. So he could not send the soap maker in China the black soap. The soap maker in China had developed a lucrative business selling his bars with black soap. So what he discovered is that adding charcoal to his bars of soap also made the soap black. Charcoal black soap products became an overnight success story.

A little American History: There are fake “African Black Soaps” on the market. These are regular bars of soap dyed black (or a liquid one that is brown) masquerading as real African Black Soap so buyer beware. More on that in another article. Real African Black Soap grew in popularity when people discovered the amazing ability it has to free their skin from acne when all other products fail. So skin altering and life changing has real African Black Soap been for people that its popularity has now become a world-wide phenomenon. People first brought it over with them from West Africa along with their stashes of raw shea butter. Eventually it began to be sold by street vendors, in small shops and farmer’s markets. One can imagine the skewed faces people first had when being offered black clumps of putty to wash their faces with. The soap was often wrapped in butcher paper or sold in plastic containers. Before long two small body care companies took notice of the soaps popularity. The Bangladeshi and African owned companies contracted a US soap making company to produced artificially black colored soaps so they could start raking in big bucks on African Black Soap. Sadly these soaps do not produce the amazing results that real African Black Soap does, nor do their sales benefit the women who produce this soap in poor African villages. But one can imagine the recognition that “African Black Soap” received when stores like Target and Walmart began to sell these imposters.

African Black Soap vs. Charcoal Black Soap:

African Black Soap:

How it’s made: The women of the village collect plantain peels, cacao pods and other plant materials which are left over from food production. In large clay pots they char the material to make it black. They then cook local oils into the char like palm, coconut and shea butter. They might further add water to make the soap into a paste or sell the powder as it is.

The Benefits: Genuine African Black Soap breaks down dead skin by dissolving the sebum layer that holds on dead skin. Not only does this make the skin firmer, fresher and younger looking, but it also evens discoloration due to hyperpigmentation and scarring. It kills bacteria which causes blemishes and acne. It has been proven to be one of the most effective products to reduce and prevent acne when all other products have failed. Because it breaks down layers of dead skin it prevents ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Purchases of real African Black Soap benefit women in villages who have no other means of making money for their families.

Charcoal Black Soap:

How it’s made: Claims are that the charcoal is “activated” before adding to products. WebMD states: Common charcoal is made from peat, coal, wood, or petroleum. “Activated charcoal” is similar to common charcoal but is made especially for use as a medicine. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or “pores”. These pores help activated charcoal “trap” chemicals. This activated charcoal is added to regular soap formulas to produce a black bar of soap. These soap formulas use modern soap making methods combining lye, water and oil to form soap.

The Benefits: It is hard to separate the benefits of charcoal once added to soap because the nature of soap is to reduce blemishes, cut grease, etc. There are claims that charcoal soaps reduce acne. This is to be expected. Charcoal is usually used in natural soap formulas vs. common chemical based soaps. Natural soaps themselves are generally gentle and in themselves generally reduce blemishes when used instead of common chemical based soaps which are made from surfactants and irritating fragrances. How much acne fighting benefits are from the charcoal vs. the natural soap that the charcoal is added to is not known. I would believe that the charcoal does add some extra acne fighting benefits to natural soap as a detoxifying agent.

Conclusion: Real African Soap is a completely herbal soap made without the use of lye. It foams and does everything that modern soaps do but does a lot more. African Black Soap can be used by itself for acne, blemishes, aging skin, and hyperpigmentation. Activated charcoal is not a soap but must be added to soap bases made from lye to create what is called black soap. The source of the charcoal is unknown and may contain petrochemicals. While activated charcoal might have detoxifying properties, in similar ways that it works to clean fish tanks, the effectiveness of the charcoal is reliant upon the lye based soap formula which it is added to. The charcoal soap is in essence only as good as the soap base it is added to. While it might enhance soaps natural blemish reducing properties, it works off the effectiveness of the soap itself.
