Is your current soap making your skin dry or itchy and making you uncomfortable? If yes, it is surely not the ‘right’ soap bar for your skin! Switch it.
Not one or two, but multiple soap types are available in the market. And for choosing the right soap, you need to understand your skin type clearly.
Don’t worry. This article covers enough information to make you aware of your skin type and find a suitable soap.
Types Of Soaps
- True Soaps
Multiple brands in the market produce true soaps. These are basically traditional soap bars that contain natural fats.
- Syndet Bars
Mostly the soaps you get over the counter are syndet bars. Syndet bars differ from vegetable oil-based soaps. These are made from surfactants derived from oil, petroleum & fats, and other chemical substances.
- Superfatted Soaps
Superfatted soaps are nothing but true soap bars with extra unsaponified oil. These do not irritate your skin, instead, they moisturize it.
- Transparent Soaps
Transparent soaps are either true or syndet soap bars with extra moisturizing substances like glycerin, making them more milder.
- Combination Bars
As the name suggests, these are the combination of different cleansers that maximize cleansing and minimize irritation or dryness. Combination bars usually contain the ingredients of superfatted and syndet soaps.
- Herbal Soaps
Herbal soaps are soaps made with natural herbs & ingredients. These are proven to be extremely gentle & soothing for your skin as they do not contain any artificial fragrances.
- Medicated Soaps
Medicated soaps contain antibacterial properties & natural ingredients that:
- moisturize your skin,
- prevent body odor, and
- maintain the skin's pH level.
How To Choose The Best Soap For Your Skin?
- Normal Skin
Normal skin is generally neither too oily nor too dry. So, do not go for a soap made for oily or dry skin. Choose a gentle soap that maintains your skin's pH balance, like herbal soap.
- Dry Skin
Itchiness, flaky skin, and dry patches are telltale signs of dry skin. If you too have it, opt for a soap with moisturizing ingredients like cocoa butter, olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, etc.
- Oily Skin
People with oily skin type encounter excess sebum production and acne breakouts. While choosing your soap, look for ingredients like aloe vera, oatmeal, tea tree oil and make sure it is non-comedogenic.
- Sensitive Skin
Sensitive skin is more prone to irritation and allergic reactions than other skin types. Consider choosing a soap with natural ingredients that are beneficial for your skin and avoid the ones with artificial fragrances, alcohol, or sulfates.
- Combination Skin
Combination skin is both dry & oily. If you have such a skin type, choose glycerin soap bars and avoid soaps specifically formulated for oily or dry skin.
