Soap is one of those things that’s considered necessary, yet so many people find it to be harsh and drying to their skin. The struggle always seems to be the same: how can I keep my hands and body clean without drying them out? The truth is, you don’t have to suffer from dry cracked hands and stripped skin in order to stay clean and dirt and grease free. Your skin can feel smoothed and soothed. Following are some of our favorite soapy solutions for sensitive and dryness prone skin.
Shea butter soap is first on the list because of how deeply moisturizing Shea butter is. Many private label skincare formulas include Shea butter for this reason, and as a soap it still retains some of its moisturizing properties. The result is a soap with a nice, rich texture and non-stripping nature that can actually help skin that would otherwise feel irritated and cracked from regular soap use. Some people even like to use this as a shampoo for the balance of cleansing and moisture that it offers.
Castile soap is another great private label skincare option for those who have more sensitive skin. Based simply on saponified plant oils, you even have the option of choosing a soap that includes soothing essential oils like Lavender. Chemical and artificial ingredient free, it’s the perfect soap for children, babies and those cold winter months that have our hands cracking from dryness.
We also carry an Aloe Vera based hand and body wash that is gentle on the skin and contains the soothing properties of Aloe Vera. Vitamin E and polysaccharides from the Aloe keep skin soft, hydrated and soothed while Coconut based soap gently cleanses without stripping the skin. Soothing plant oils like Rosehip Seed and Borage also lend a helping hand and keep the skin moisturized. This is a great soap option for children and those with sensitive skin as well.
You can have the best of both worlds: soft skin that that's also clean. Whether you choose a rich and protective private label Shea butter soap, the lighter Castile, or our specially formulated Aloe Vera based body and hand wash, know that you don’t have to sacrifice your skin in the name of cleanliness.
