Why no shower gel?
Because a raw solid soap is a perfect alternative to shower gel : it can be stored longer, it is light to transport (did you know soap pouches existed?), and ecological: it contains no additives.
A common practice in the slow cosmetics is to melt a raw soap and to add ingredients (vegetable and essential oils, herbs, etc.), the new soap solidifies at cooling.
If you like to do if this way, it is safe. But note that the properties of the ingredients added in the soap are not valued when it’s rinsed out rightaway. Kind of a waste, isn’t it?
