ByGrandma : Bath Powder and Face wash Comparisons In India
A shower is an essential element to starting a good day. This is what you need to refresh your senses and get set for the day ahead. Many people will tell you that even on days when they don’t have to step out, they don’t really feel awake until they’ve had a morning shower. 
Shower and soap are almost synonymous. After all, how do you bathe without soap?  There are a plethora of choices available today in terms of branded bath soaps. This includes bar soaps, gels, and bath powders. Bar soaps that were once the most popular are today at the bottom of the popularity ladder. What’s rising to the top are bath powders. 

What makes Bath Powders Special?

To understand what’s making bath powders increasingly popular, let’s compare them to bar soaps and gels.


Bar soaps and gels contain a number of harsh ingredients. This includes Formaldehyde, a chemical that can lower the functioning of the immune system, Triclosan – did you know this is a pesticide… and Diethanolamine that can contribute towards certain cancers. Even the synthetic fragrances used in bar soaps and gels can cause allergic reactions and serious headaches. 
On the other hand, bath powder is traditionally made with simple, natural ingredients. A good bath powder contains no chemicals and is 100% preservative-free.

Travel Friendliness

One of the core reasons bath soap bars are losing their popularity is because they aren’t very travel-friendly. People don’t like sharing them as it feels as if the soap is covered with germs after a bath. Also, after it’s been used, the soap doesn’t dry instantly but stays wet and feel ‘slimy’. 
Gels, on the other hand, are easier to travel with. However, ether’s always the fear of leakage- and who wants their clothes covered with soap?
Bath powders are easy to use and extremely travel-friendly. They can be shared by the whole family so everyone doesn’t need to carry their own soap. Bath powders are packed in jars with lockable lids so that the risk of leakage is minimized.

When you bathe, you expect a lather. Both bar soaps and gels offer this and its because we’ve been using them for years that we assume a lather is needed to cleanse the skin. In truth, a lather has no influence over how the soap cleanses your skin but it does make you feel squeaky clean. 
Bath powders, on the other hand, produce no lather. They cleanse skin as well if not better than bar soaps and gels but getting used to the no-lather bath may take a little time.

Finding the Best Bath Powder

Bath powders were traditionally made at home. After all, they use simple, natural ingredients. The simplest homemade bath powder is probably the mixture of chickpea flour and turmeric made into a paste with rose water of milk. It’s an ubtan that probably everyone has used at least once in their life. 
Other bath powders contain many more ingredients. In the urban environment that most of us live in today, finding the ingredients for these bath powders can be a little more difficult than it was for our grandmothers.  For example, do you know where you could find Nardostachys? And if you did find it, how do you treat it? How do you maximize its nutritive value? 
Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about making your own bath powder. Realizing the need for a holistic alternative to chemical-based soaps, there are a number of brands that today offer bath powders for retail sale. These bath powders are available in stores as well as online e-commerce websites. 
Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly known names

Pay Attention to Your Face

The skin on your face is very different from the skin over the rest of your body. While you do need to keep your face clean, most soaps that can be used to bathe with cannot be used on the face. This is because these soaps interfere with the pH balance of the facial skin and scrub away the skin’s natural oils too. As a result, using a normal soap on your face can leave it feeling dry.

Why Bath Powders?

One of the advantages of using a bath powder instead of bar soaps and gels is that it can be used on the face as well as the rest of the body. This is because it contains no chemicals and is made with 100% herbal ingredients. This is especially advantageous when you’re traveling as you need to carry a single product instead of two.
But, that’s not the only advantage a bath powder has over face washes. Let’s take a closer look at some popular face washes and compare them against the ByGrandma Skin Brightening Face Wash and Bath Powder.
