Why They Can’t Use Regular Disinfectant Soap?

Green soap is preferred over the regular soap because it has healing effect on the skin. The soap is rich in moisturizing oils, preventing the skin irritation. On the other hand, regular disinfectant soap dries out the skin and robs its natural oils, creating a bad match for tattoo or piercing as both body arts can be painful to sensitive skin. For example, normal antibacterial soaps like Neem soap and hemp soap are expensive and contain additives, which may irritate the sensitive skin. Green soap is ideal and cheap way for tattoo artist to maintain their shop hygiene and speed up the client’s healing process.
