Soap Ministry products are all organically handmade and natural hence are biodegradable !
We use soaps countless times a day to keep our hands clean but using soaps that contain chemicals can cause harm to marine life. Soaps used are washed down the drain and can end up in lakes and oceans. Synthetic-based chemicals from soaps hence end up in the oceans! Common chemicals such as Triclosan which can be found in many antibacterial hand soaps have been declared toxic by Environment Canada in 2012.
However, despite that, many products containing this ingredient can still be found. Triclosan has shown toxic effects on aquatic life. A study in the United States has shown that there are dangerous levels of triclosan accumulated in the bodies of dolphins. Another type of chemical is Parabens which are not only harmful to humans but it also contaminates the water ecosystems
