Let’s dive in and see why using a standard soap on your brows may not be quite as safe as you think!
Using a soap as brow soap
Before we discuss the issues with using a soap as a brow product, let’s first outline what brow soap is for those who don't know.
Not to be confused with brow specific products like EyebrowQueens Brow Soap Fix (which has been formulated to be used as a brow soap), Brow soaping is where a standard bar of soap or Gel equivalent is applied to the brows using a brow brush to brush them up and into place. Many find this a cheap and convenient way to style their brows however because a soap bar hasn’t been made to be used in this way, there are a number of unpleasant issues that can arise when it is applied to the skin and brow area.
What are the potential issues using soap as a brow fixer? How safe is brow soap?
Whilst the use of soap is generally ‘low risk’ for most, there are definitely a few things to think about if you are considering using brow soap.
Regular soap has a pH-Level that is too Alkaline and so when it is applied to the skin and left on for hours it can lead to damage to the skin barrier which in turn can cause redness, dryness and irritation! Not ideal!
Ordinary soap is designed to be washed off. When applied to the skin it can build up and can often leave white residue on brows that not only looks unsightly but can lead to other issues such as clogged pores and flakey skin. Aside from causing sore dryness, using soap on the brows has been known to slow hair growth and in some cases cause brow hair loss over time. Suddenly a specific brow fixing product seems all the more appealing right?!
Use a fixing product made for eyebrows
