Natural soaps for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

Jabones naturales para la prevención y el tratamiento del cáncer de mama.

Organic soaps: allies in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

We believe it is important to disseminate how you can reduce the risk of having it and treat some of the side effects of chemotherapy, through your personal hygiene routine. Current knowledge about the root causes of breast cancer is insufficient; However, several studies link chemicals in commercial soaps with a risk to your health.

The skin absorbs chemicals

Usually, we forget that the skin is a permeable organ. Have you thought about how much it absorbs from everyday cosmetics? The fact is that there are more than two million pores in our skin, and about 60% of topical applications are absorbed by our skin. Industrialized soaps contain many harmful chemicals and preservatives.

What toxic ingredients are hidden in industrialized soaps?

  • Parabens : They are one of the most used chemical compounds in the cosmetic industry. The University of Reading found parabens in breast tumor biopsies, suggesting a possible connection to breast cancer.
  • Formol : This chemical is easily absorbed through the skin, can cause asthma, and some studies indicate that it may be carcinogenic.
  • Triclosan : Present in soaps, shampoos and toothpastes, it has been linked to an increased risk of cancer, in addition to interfering with the normal functioning of thyroid and reproductive hormones.
  • Ammonium Cations: Ammonium compounds are used in fabric softeners to make clothes appear softer. They are known to trigger asthma attacks and are believed to interfere with our reproductive system.
  • Synthetic dyes: Artificial dyes can be found in all types of personal care products, soaps and detergents. They are petroleum derivatives and can increase the risk of skin irritation and sensitivity.
  • PEGS: They are used in personal care products such as shampoo, body wash, and soap to make the ingredients gentler on the skin. During production, products become contaminated with dioxane, a known human carcinogen.
  • Petroleum-derived sulfates: These are very common foaming agents in shampoos, body washes, hand soaps, and laundry detergents. They can cause irritation in skin, rashes, allergic reactions and hormonal disruption.

Consume organic soaps

The difference in buying handmade soaps is that, in addition to nourishing your skin with the best ingredients, they do not contain uncertain chemicals. This is vital to not contaminate your body and reduce, in certain cases, the risk of having breast cancer. At Home Healthy Home , we use the best natural extracts and organic olive oil to make your skin look and feel better.


If you have cancer, you may notice side effects from chemotherapy on your skin. At Home Healthy Home, we care about your well-being and we will advise you on how to counteract some of the adverse reactions on your skin.

Side effects

The goal of most chemotherapies is to stop cell multiplication, which impacts both cancer cells and healthy cells, affecting the skin. Extreme dryness is one of the most common effects.

The good news is that skin reactions are usually temporary. Daily skin care during treatment is essential for your well-being.

Skin care during chemotherapy

  • Choose gentle products: fragrance-free and chemical-free, such as our soap bar No. 50 or No. 52 for the face, recommended for delicate skin. If you prefer, you can also use Nº140 gel for sensitive skin.

  • Avoid products with a lot of alcohol: perfumes, colognes, aftershaves.

  • Short baths in warm water: instead of hot water. Gently dry yourself with a soft towel.

  • Apply unscented moisturizer or oil to your skin while it is still damp.

  • Protect your skin: wear sunscreen, lip balm with SPF 30 or higher, a hat, and long-sleeved clothing.

Remember to consult the use of the products with your doctor at all times, since all organisms are different.

Don't forget that commercial detergents for washing your clothes can also cause allergies. For this reason, we recommend that you wash your clothes with our perfume-free No. 12 laundry soap for delicate skin. No petroleum derivatives, enzymes or harmful preservatives.

Pamper yourself!

No matter what your case is, the best thing you can do for your own health is to consume organic products free of harmful chemicals. Why not start with choosing your soaps? We have a wide variety for all skin types. Allow yourself to take a daily break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with your personal hygiene routine.
