Ramani's Musings

Hello friends!

As you would have read in my previous post, there are a lot of advantages to using natural personal and home care products over commercial ones.

However, it is important to know some specific information (very positive stuff, don’t worry, folks!) in connection with natural, eco-friendly products, before we switch over to them.

For one, it has long been believed that more the foam, better the cleansing. Wrong!! In fact, natural soaps and cleaning powders/detergents do not produce much lather or foam. Why is that so?

The cleansing quality is however, not at all affected.
