Let’s start by saying that we all use various soaps in our house for various purposes. We use soaps to clean our body, we use soaps or liquids to clean dishes, we use soaps to clean the floors, we use soaps to clean our clothes, we use soaps to clean glass, etc. But do we know what all ingredients these soaps have and whether they are harmful to us. Most of these soaps, liquids, cleaners we touch or come in contact with, are they safe or do they pose a threat to our health or environment.
So you do need to know what is in your soap, is it harmful to you, does it affect the environment in any way, etc. Here is a website we found that does exactly this.

In the first box you have to enter the name of your soap and in the second box you can enter your email address, but that is a optional box. You don’t have to enter one if you do not want to.
