Use Lye-Free Soap!
Traditional Soaps are made with lye, a very alkaline substance. Our skin must have an acidic environment in order for our natural immune defense to survive. When we use lye soap, our immune defense gets washed away and has to be rebuilt. Furthermore, lye is somewhat toxic to our bodies.
You can use soap with lye to wash your hands, bottom, groin area and armpits but you shouldn’t cover yourself head to toe in it. I suggest using lye-free soap for the other areas!
Lye-free soaps can be found at health food stores in the beauty section and also online!
To your amazing immune system!
