My Thoughts About Bar Soaps We Had To Use Traveling With My Children

You may not have thought about bar soap in a while until you are suddenly confronted with it in a guest bathroom or a hotel room shower. It seems something from the past, like something you used when you were taking baths as a kid, it’s time to re-examine the power of the bar of soap.


Body washes are becoming more and more popular among men, especially those who struggle with dry skin, but the kind of clean you get from bar soap is second to none. While they are not self-cleaning as some have claimed, they get the job done with less mess and can last longer than a bottle of wash.  In our current age of sustainability and eco-friendliness, bar soaps come with less waste. I owned a company that made and bottled shampoo for use in one’s hair. Just think, that’s liquid soap with Laureth Sulfate with little waste the amounts used in the soaps today are getting less and less, you can use them till they’re completely gone, but with the bar, there is no plastic bottle to throw into the recycling bin when you’re done. Many soap companies are even changing their packaging to make bar soap an even greener option.


Bar soaps are versatile and can be great for you no matter what your skin type is. You can find soap for oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, and everything in between. Check out some bars of soap and I promise, you won’t think about the bottle anymore.


Baxter of California Vitamin Cleansing Bar, one of the biggest complaints about bar soap is that they can make your skin feel too dry; not this one. It contains sunflower oil and glycerin to keep your skin hydrated and smooth all over. It comes in a citrus and musk fragrance which many men consider one of their favorites, scented soaps for men.


Method Men Sea + Surf Exfoliating Bar Soap is exfoliating bar soap, they advertise that this soap has a little grit in it to help smooth away dry, dead skin cells and leave your body feeling clean and fresh. It also contains minerals, instead of microbeads and the scent is fresh without being overpowering. By checking and testing it on my skin I can say their advertisement is true. See what each company stated on their package to push their product.


Dove White Beauty Bar is a dermatologist-endorsed bar.  It is considered one of the best for your face, but here’s a little secret, you can use it all over your body, too, especially if you have sensitive skin. It contains gentle moisturizing ingredients that hydrate and clean skin without stripping it overmuch.


First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Gentle Cleansing Bar is a soap bar that can be used on your face as well as your body, this one includes colloidal oatmeal, which is known for its skin-soothing properties. It’s ideal if you struggle with sensitive or dry skin and other skin issues like eczema.


Alaffia unscented Authentic African Black Soap has unrefined shea butter and is incredibly moisturizing, and gentle on skin, which makes this bar perfect for every skin type from the driest to the most sensitive. There’s still a slight, natural scent in this unscented version, and all Alaffia’s products are fair trade.


The Rich and Clean N0 9 Soap Bar is for guys with oily skin or who sweat a lot, the charcoal in this soap helps soak up excess oil and leave you fresh without that telltale tight feeling. The Japanese peppermint is said to help curb oil production, but also gives this soap a bite of fresh, but not overpowering, fragrance.


Caswell-Massey Cold Cream Luxury Bath Soap Set is a triple-milled soap known for its silky-smooth texture and it cleans effectively with less lather so as not to strip away your skin barrier. The natural vegetable base of this soap is gentle enough for all skin types and the subtle almond fragrance smells fresh, without being over barring.


Ursa Major Morning Mojo Bar Soap, some people call this soap Morning Mojo, because the peppermint and eucalyptus fragrance in this soap gives you a jolt of clarity in the morning. It has grit within it but doesn’t feel rough on your skin, thanks to moisturizing honey and coconut.


Oars + Alps Natural Moisturizing Alps Bar Soap, this Soap will smell like you just got back from a hike through the Rockies, this soap delivers a woody, outdoorsy scent. It also contains shea butter, so it’s gentle on even dry skin.


Organic Bath Co. Zesty Morning Bar Soap there is enough oils in this soap to keep even the driest skin moisturized and protected, but what most people love most about it is the bright citrus scent. It’s not overpowering and doesn’t linger too much on your skin.


Ethique Pumice, Tea Tree, & Spearmint Bar Soap has every kind of bar you could imagine including shampoo and conditioning bars, but most people like this exfoliating and clarifying bar because it helps get rid of dead skin cells and excess oil at the same time.


Lush Karma Bar Soap a handmade soap sounds like it would be overpowering, but it also has citrus which helps temper what could otherwise be a heavy fragrance. Bars are made fresh with natural ingredients and last for months.


When you have 12 children and flying all over the world with them when they are out of school, we had all types of care and products we had to use and test for each of the children. We had very picky children with food as well. during those days I could tell you what the advertiser was pushing about their product. I have a whole story about foreign toilet paper. The UK, France, Italy, Germany have caught with the US because our company started manufacturing their products in those countries. But bar soap was a big thing.
