17. About soap

Many people ask this kind of question as well. There are many different types, and it is natural to wonder over which ones are best. These are the basic guideline for choosing soap.

The normal soaps sold at your local supermarket are most likely the safest. Whenever I say this, patients give me a strange look; they expect me to recommend some amazing soap, and I, instead, give them a rather plain answer. There is no soap that has been more tested by humans than those soaps. These are still on the shelves since although millions of people have used them, none of them have had allergic reactions to it. This fact makes the safety of these soaps apparent. However, how many people have used soaps aimed for people with AD? Even though sellers may claim that the soaps do not irritate skin, there is simply no way to know unless people have actually used them.

Therefore, my belief is as follows: The soaps sold at supermarkets are good enough. However, every person had different skin; if your skin condition gets worse when you use these kinds of soaps, you should search for something. You should not start with obscure soaps that have not been tested by lots of people. However, avoid using body soap and soaps containing synthetic surfactants, and stick to pure soap.

There are nearly a billion bacteria that maintain a delicate balance in the skin. The most prominent one is Staphylococcus epidermidis. The substance this bacterium produces is a weak acid. This, combined with moderate amounts of facial oil, make the skin weakly acidic. Staphylococcus aureus, which is an alkali, cannot grow on the skin for this reason. This is how skin bacteria act as a natural barrier. This is why AD patients should avoid lathering their body with soaps containing synthetic surfactants everyday. After all, people used to survive without using soap. Hot water is enough in most times.

There are many patients who want better soaps even when I explain this to them. They not only want soaps that are safe, but ones that will make skin conditions better. The ideal soap would provide nutrients to the skin and make the skin look healthier. There are also some patients who do not know where they should buy pure soap. In those cases, I recommend the soaps that are used at my clinic.
This soaps primary ingredient is clay-like peat found in Okinawa, called “Kucha”. It is a homogeneous and rare mud made from the yellow sand that got carried from the prevailing westerlies form Mongolia and accumulated in the ocean floor near the Okinawa Islands before they arose. It soaks deep into the pores and provides various minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and silicon. The Ryukyu (Okinawa) dialect names this as “Urizun”, which means seasons of fresh verdure.

First, noni and sugar cane are fermented at 30 to 40 degrees farenheight. After that, natural plant extracts such as noni extracts (which helps produce collagen), Mozuku extracts (which contains fukoidan that softens the skin), and hibiscus extracts (which contains AHA, α-hydroxy acid) are added. After this, moringa oil, traditionally used by Ayurvedic medicine, is added. These processes allow the soap to not only take away the dirt on bodies, but also functions as a supplement to the skin.

The functions of liquid and solid fat have been ignored until now. One of the basic supplements at my clinic is flax seed oil, which is taken orally. Since I would like patients to use this on their skin as well, moringa oil was added. 70% of “Urizun” is made from oleic acid, which is commonly found in olive oil. However, moringa oil contains more vitamins and vital amino acids than olive oil, and is better for revitalizing the skin.

Another important fact is that “Urizun” retains the live fermenters from the fermentation of noni and sugarcane. Many of these bacteria have an important function in keeping the skin healthy. The fatty acids made from these bacteria maintain the weak acidity of the skin and prevents infections from Staphylococcus aureus, streptococcus, and other harmful bacteria. It also becomes food for good bacteria such as Staphylococcus epidermidis. In addition, the sucrose and maltose in sugar cane can combine to become glucooligosaccharides, which maintains the balance of the bacteria on the skin. Therefore, after washing your face with “Urizun”, your skin will feel light and healthy since this soap supplements the skin with good bacteria and glucooligosaccharides.

This does not contain synthetic surfactants, and instead uses saponin in order to be safer than pure soap. In addition, since it goes through a cold process, which takes time unlike neutralization methods used for mass production, the abundant natural glycerin blends in and leaves a mild feel. This soap is excellent because of its intricate manufacture process. This is a supplement soap. I would recommend people use once a day to treat not only AD, but also acne, skin whitenening, and antiaging.
However, this special soap, ordered all the way from Okinawa, has not been used by millions of people, as mentioned before. As a result, there may be some people whose skin may not react well to the soap. If this happens, stop using this immediately.
