Soaps and skin hygiene


Did you know, that chronic sinusitis was almost unknown in ancient Greece?


My booklet tells you the reason.

Aggressive soaps have had a tremendous influence on our culture and medical history.

Aiming at cleaning the skin with potent chemistry makes aggressive and multi-resistant germs dominant in our bodies.

In nowadays’ culture, there are facilities, which propose massage.

Our ancestors invented them, as a recreative break, which permitted them to relax after days and weeks of washing with olive oil, where intensive mechanical abrasion was a part of the task, provided by the user, himself/herself.

If our home soaps can be handled in Nature, this only to a certain amount, which is not the case for more potent industrials.
