Soap free for seven years | Toronto Star
Be that as it may… ‘RACE’ & cultural diets & practices count for offensive smells.
As a ‘CAUCASIAN WESTERN BODY TYPE’… I NEED TO SHOWER with soap regularly. Otherwise I have a perception of being grungie. Not pyschological at all. My skin feels renewed(I scrub the skin to remove dead skin cells).
Diet being a major factor. LIPIDS PLAYING A MAJOR ROLE in which the body has to deal with it’s elimination. At the skin level… where chemicals have to travel a distance from the digestive tract, it stagnates and picks with up other chemicals that becomes a source of all things olfactory off gasing from the surface especially when bacteria gets involved.
The worst the ‘QUALITY’ of lipids… oil as it’s typically called, the worst off you will smell.
Take a gander and walk near a homeless shelter and you will no doubt find that a closepin is a must rather than an option. Even with thorough scrubbing using soap… the lingering odors are apparent. Not to mention those that clings to clothes and objects like cigarette smoke to a magnet.
Yes in a picture perfect LIPID UNIVERSE… soap would not be necessary.
However… we are a far cry before that happens !
Better to manage a better bacterial environment to deal with lipids in a way that eliminates the offending smells by accelerating the speed of skin exfoliation processes.
DOGS WILL LOVE YOU 😆😆😆
PS – THERE’S AN IMPORTANT BIOLOGICAL PROCESS THAT THAT’S PLACE AT THE OUTER SKIN LEVELS. HAVEN’T TALKED ABOUT IT YET AS NOT ALL THE WORDS ARE THERE TO DESCRIBE IT. FOR NOW… IF YOU INGEST POOR QUALITY FOOD… USE SOAP & SCRUB YOURSELVES.
