Eco-Friendly Cleansing: Avoid Harmful Ingredients with BEE Zero Waste’s Natural Soaps

Navigating the Soap Aisle: Ingredients to Avoid for a Healthier You and Planet

In the journey toward a healthier lifestyle and a greener planet, the choices we make in our daily hygiene routines hold significant weight. As consumers grow more vigilant about the ingredients in their personal care products, BEE Zero Waste stands as a beacon of transparency and environmental stewardship. Our commitment is to offer body soap options that not only cleanse and nourish the skin but also safeguard health and the environment. This blog delves into the synthetic ingredients commonly found in mass-produced soaps and body washes, highlighting why they're best avoided and how BEE Zero Waste provides safe, eco-friendly alternatives.

Synthetic Ingredients: A Closer Look

The mass production of body soaps and washes has increasingly relied on synthetic ingredients, many of which pose risks to both health and the environment. Here's a rundown of what to watch out for:

Artificial Fragrances:

Often a concoction of undisclosed chemicals, artificial fragrances can contain phthalates and derivatives of petroleum. Phthalates are linked to reproductive and thyroid issues, while petroleum derivatives raise concerns about their long-term impact on health.

Diethanolamine (DEA):

This foaming agent is associated with kidney and liver problems and is considered a potential carcinogen, raising alarms about its safety in skincare products.


Commonly used as preservatives, parabens can disrupt estrogen function and have been found in environmental samples, indicating their persistence and potential harm to wildlife.

Sodium Lauryl and Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES):

Known for their foaming action, these chemicals can irritate the skin and lungs. Furthermore, they pose a risk to marine life, highlighting the need for alternatives that are kinder to our bodies and the planet.


Though banned by the FDA in hand sanitizers for its link to organ damage and accumulation in the body, triclosan still lurks in various cleaning products, raising questions about its safety in personal care items.
