Compare the ingredients and quality!
I mean, why pay $7.50 for a bar of handmade soap when you can buy one for $5.50, or even less?
To find the true value of a soap bar you first need to look at the ingredients, and to do that you need to read the ingredient list.
You can't compare a soap that is full of beautiful natural ingredients against one that is full of cheap chemicals. Just remember whatever ingredient comes first on the label is what it contains the most of, then as you read along the list, the last ingredient mentioned is what it contains the least of.
Next you need to know how much it weighs. A $5.50 bar might look like good value, but is it really?
A $7.50 bar of soap that weighs 150 gr. = $2.50 per 50 gr.
A $5.50 bar of soap that weighs 100 gr. = $2.75 per 50 gr.
That $5.50 bar is not as good a bargain as you originally thought.
If the soap bar you are thinking of buying doesn’t have a weight listed, ask so you can compare the real price.
Don’t be swayed by how pretty a soap looks, once you’re using it in your bath or shower how it looks is not going to matter, but the fragrance, feel and how good it is for your skin, will!
