Skin Benefits of using a plant-based Body Wash

Posted by Agrima Gulati on

Too many options, too little time

Go over to your local supermarket and you will find endless options for Body Wash and Bar soaps. We have so much variety to choose from- we often tend to pick a new one every time we go shopping or just stick to our usual ones. More often, checking the minuscule back label seldom comes to our mind- since we’re usually stuck on the vibrant colors and variants they come in! Today on The Clean Slate, let’s talk about why we need to stick to plant-based Body Wash and the skin benefits that come along!

Body Wash vs Bar Soap

  • Your skin type, naturally, should play a central role in deciding what you use for your skin. If you have dry skin, which can often be extremely flaky, then shower gel is your best option as they’re known to be way more moisturizing than bar soap. 
  • Bar soaps available in the market often have synthetic surfactant that has the tendency to strip your skin of its natural oil.
  • Bars also tend to have a high pH level, when this comes in contact with your body’s naturally low ph level, it can cause irritation and a change in your skin’s texture.
  • Even with natural ingredients present in a soap bar, they may still have high pH levels which can again add to the dryness.

Natural Body Wash

As we know, Body Wash is commonly gel-based. Therefore they do not overstay their welcome on our precious skin! The best part is that they keep the moisture locked-in and do not strip our skin from the natural oils we produce. However, it’s time you check the label of your favourite Body Wash. Take a look at the ingredients. If they include chemical surfactants, they might be doing you more harm than good. Natural Body Washes have many benefits and one of them is that they do not need the help of the nasties to keep your skin clean. Keep reading below to understand the benefits of a plant-based Body Wash

Benefits of a plant-based Body Wash

Plant-based cleaners, we stan! Koparo takes pride in making all of its cleaners completely plant based! Even our surfactants are derived from plant-based cleaning agents. Koparo’s Body Wash Range is completely powered by mother nature. Here are some common benefits of choosing a plant-based body wash over the rest:

Hydration for your skin

A hydrated skin is a goal for every skin type- especially the people who have a dry or combination skin. Moisturizer is a great tool for them but it only does the job of providing a layer of hydration upon your skin. This is where your body wash comes to play. Koparo’s Zesty Lime and Teatree Body Wash contains lime which gets rid of your clogged pores and the teatree oil provides you the correct amount of moisturization and ensures that the hydration is completely locked in!

Prevents Dryness in Skin

Some of us have dry skin- which needs constant nourishment. Even people that have oily skin get dry and chaffed skin in winters, which is completely normal. However, your skin needs to be taken care of, and using chemical-based body cleaners might strip your skin from its natural oils, causing it to become even more dry. With Koparo’s Mogra Body Wash, you can expect a gentle exfoliation to remove the dirt. It also contains aloe extracts and glycerin that hydrate your skin. The Jasmine leaves your skin smelling super fresh and good, which is always an add-on!

Skin Treatment and healing properties

We all know the biggest healer on earth- mother nature. Plant-based body wash use healing agents that have been used for centuries to treat skin problems. Koparo’s Zesty Lime and Teatree contains aloe vera extracts. Aloe Vera has antibacterial properties and it is an excellent antioxidant for your skin. It not only cleans your skin but also prevents any skin diseases coming your way

Get Rid of Germs- naturally

We are always in contact with dust particles around us. It’s natural for our pores to get clogged with germs and dirt. This causes acne and red bumps on our skin, which is not a very good look. Natural surfactants like Decyl Glucoside and Coco Glucoside are excellent plant-based cleansing agents that remove the dust and grimes off your body and keep the moisture locked in

Prevents Skin Irritation

Skin Irritation is a feeling that causes you to constantly keep scratching your skin, causing it to become red. You can also unintentionally scrape off the upper, protective layer of your skin making it more prone to breaking out. With plant-based body wash, you come in contact with ingredients that are naturally sourced and derived from plants and plant-based products. With no chemicals coming in contact to your skin, it saves it from constant irritation and itchiness and calm the skin and leave it feeling soft and moisturized using natural ingredients that support skin health. 


Whether your skin is sensitive or not, nature is the best way to go. It is safer and as effective as your chemical body wash- even more so! Koparo’s organic body wash is a subtle change and a simple solution to toxic commercial products. It is for the better of the consumer and the environment alike.
