SoapAlternatives.com hopes to provide you with some tools to help you find useful information about skin disorders.
The weblinks provided are, in general, to actively managed and edited websites where you find the latest and best information for plotting personal, local, national or world health choices. During this last 100 years, much of the world population has made a big leap in living standards and impoved health (see links), clearly we have further to go.
Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM), based on evaluations done by the Cochrane Review and available in the Cochrane Library, is one current important source for you or our government in achieving the best medical care. Without facts such as valid comparisons of treatments or procedures we are not able to pick those which would be most beneficial, effective and or cost/effective.
Beyond finding understandable information about health conditions, treatment (OTC, CAMs, medications, therapy, health) and procedures (surgery) you may want to look at original articles and reviews yourself (PubMed).
NoSoap is a novelty item to help people consider their use of heavily promoted soap products.
“…a pure product. Shaped and smoothed by hand sanding, it has no surface coating or other ingredient to block its effectiveness as it prevents the skin damage from soaps you might otherwise use.
Why NO SOAP™?
Over the years major breakthroughs have improved the mildness of soaps, so that in the year 2000 products like Dove, Lever 2000 and Syndet bar can claim to be the mildest of soaps.
Even the mildest soaps made earlier cause mild to severe rashes, particularly in the winter months anywhere north of Miami, Florida. Only the naturally pure, smooth, block of NO SOAP™, first produced by Thomas Edwin Bamford, Sr., MD for his suffering patients back in 1866, can protect you from real soap damage.
The History of NO SOAP™
Tom had a general practice which he carried out in his home office at 418 North Delaware Street, Syracuse, New York, North America. An orphan himself, he could not afford much soap in England where he was born and, later, in Wales where is father worked in the mines. He continued growing up in the tenements of New York City. After his mother died, he and his brother had to go to Remsen, New York, as a farm hand. The supportive Welch community there must have recognized his potential and helped him complete his formal education.
Though the air could be rough, wet and cold there, it was not until he began practice in upstate New York that he saw patients who, every winter, developed painfully dry, cracking skin. Over time he recognized the importance of avoiding too much soap, then the harsh soaps (Ivory is still fine for those who live in Florida), then the milder soaps (Cashmere Bouquet). He then had the sudden insight, NO SOAP™ would be best way to promote healthy skin.
This novelty product was quick to clear the damaged skin of his General Practice patients in Syracuse, New York, where he had in home office at 418 North Delaware Street. He also served as the Medical Director of a large psychiatric hospital, where it is likely NO SOAP™ was also a blessing to patients.
Thus far four generations of North American Drs Bamford have promoted this skin saving alternative to traditional, lye based, defatting skin products (any soap, body wash or shampoo).
