Help me choose A Natural Soap For Dry Skin
Dry skin is a result of a decrease in sebum production, the natural skin oil necessary to keep the skin moist and lubricated. Since dry skin has a decreased oil barrier, water easily evaporates through the skin.
Dry skin looks dry, feels tight, may flake, and is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Dry skin conditions are exacerbated by detergent soaps, alcohol-based products, chemical ingredients in cosmetic products, and change in seasons.
We have learned from our research and our customers that some types of dry skin love the butters, like shea, mango and cocoa. Other types love the oils rich in a fatty acid called linoleic acid, such as grapeseed, sunflower, safflower, and hemp. Still others like soaps rich in honey or coconut milk!
One customer told us that her skin loves any natural soap with "food" in it. "My skin just loves the Pumpkin Spice, Avocado, Cucumber, Carrot (I think there are a few more) soaps. The food soaps seem to contain something that makes my dry, itchy skin very happy!"
All of our natural soaps are very moisturizing. These are particularly helpful for extra dry skin.
