Tea Tree Oil Soap
What is tea tree oil? Tea tree oil is an essential oil that can be used as an antibacterial agent to help eliminate acne and fungal infections. It can also be used for rashes, burns and dandruff. The essential oil can be applied to the body in its pure form, but I personally like to use tea tree oil in soaps. My favorite brand of tea tree oil soap being The Soap Works tea tree soap.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I used to avoid soaps finding them drying but having grown up with sensitive dry skin I began developing acne on my back. For years, I couldn't seem to figure out what was making my back break out. I showered every day. I tried rinsing hair conditioner away from my back. At one point, I even stopped using conditioner. Unfortunately, it didn't change anything. Then one day while I was at my local bulk barn I saw a selection of natural soaps from a company called the Soap Works. I did some research, read rave reviews and decided to try them out. After 3 months the acne disappeared and I haven't had to deal with body acne ever again. Whenever I feel a bump forming on my face or back I just use a bit of the soap on the spot and rinse it. It goes away after a bit.
Goat Milk Soap
I only recently started using goat milk soap but so far I'm loving it. Some benefits of goat milk soap are it doesn't use harsh chemicals, it's anti-aging, the cream and fat content make it moisturizing, includes vitamins A, D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, and has anti-bacterial properties. I also like using it for shaving as it is creamy and lathers well. I purchased my goat milk soap from Shoppers Drug Mart, but you can probably find it at any health food store or drug store. The brand I am using right now is Alpen Secrets goat milk soap.
You can't get more natural than plain old glycerin soap. Glycerin soaps are very moisturizing and since they do not contain any fragrances or additives it's good for sensitive skin. You can even make your own and add different essential oils to your liking.
I am always open to trying new naturals soaps and bath products. Recently I am loving the soaps from Etsy shop Malee by Nature. Go check them out too they sell natural soy candles and other bath products.
