The event began with remarks by the Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology, Medan Area University, Dr. Faisal Amri Tanjung, S.ST, MT. The participants who attended the webinar reached 560 participants from various cities in Indonesia. The importance of maintaining health and the dangers of using manufactured soap motivates Maysarah doctors to make organic soap.
As for the Dangers of soap manufacturers as follows:
- SLS ( sodium laureth sulfate ) SLES ( sodium lauryl ether sulfate ) => foam on soap ( detergent ) = dandruff, cataracts, cracked skin
- Phthalates => make the soap look smooth and hard = hormone disruption
- Parabens => preservatives = hormonal disorders
- Triclosan (antibacterial) => accumulates in the body = irritates the skin and disrupts hormonal balance
Soap handmade or organic soaps are handmade soap with the use of a more simple by the number of chemicals that are less than factory-made soap.
“Handmade soap has the same function as manufacturer’s soap in general (ie binds bacteria and viruses with its foam, then damages the structure of germs and dissolves with water)” Dr. Maysarah Utami Siregar, MKM
The event went well and smoothly and at the end of the event a question and answer session was opened for participants who wanted to ask questions directly with the maysarah doctor.
