How many different types of soap have you seen in the market? Bar soaps and liquid soaps to shower gels and body washes; you would’ve thought they are all the same!
We hate to burst your soap bubbles, but they are not.
Both bar soaps and body washes help in cleansing. But you should always pick a soap with natural ingredients that’s gentle on the skin and doesn’t alter your skin’s pH level.
When buying soap, you should always base it on your skin type, the ingredients in the soap and, believe it or not, where you live! As rule #1 of your skincare regime, go for a soap that doesn’t leave your skin irritated after a wash and cause breakouts.
Here’s a breakdown of what’s what in soaps.
Body wash: A body wash is best if you have normal to dry skin. A body wash will help retain moisture and won’t leave your skin dry and tight. If you have acne prone skin, a cleansing body wash such as our African Black Soap Body Wash helps kill blemishes and acne causing bacteria.
Bar soap: Now if you have oily skin, live somewhere hot and humid, or just want to clean up after a workout, buy a natural bar soap. To get that drool-worthy supple skin, always choose bar soaps made from organic oils, butters, herbs and pure essential oils. Soaps with natural essential oils not only add fragrance but also help in toning, balancing, and invigorating the skin.
Facial wash: The skin on your face is more delicate and much thinner than the rest of your body. And only a natural face wash can provide the gentle care it needs. Facial washes also bring balance to the natural oils on your face. Products like our Benefits Beyond Beauty Creamy Facial Cleanser won’t irritate your skin and will maintain its pH balance.
Remember, your skin needs constant care for a natural, healthy glow. Whether you are starting your natural skincare journey or are exploring options, we’re here to help you find the best natural soap for your skin type.
