Soaps are essentially made of salts of fatty acids. The most commonly used fats come from animal and vegetable sources and include stearic acid, palmitic, oleic, as well as lauric. These salts and acids might be dangerous for some skin types. Soaps can also combine with the calcium and magnesium found on the surface of the skin to form fatty acid salts which can become irritating.
Thus best way to get a clean and glowing skin is to maintain a balanced diet and use natural face wash.
