Natural Ingredients to Treat Dry Skin

Natural Ingredients to Treat Dry Skin

When formulating a bar of soap specifically for dry skin, it's important to include ingredients that provide moisturization, nourishment, and gentle cleansing. Although countless options are available to heal dry skin, we have compiled a list of 10 ingredients that work well to hydrate and moisturize dry skin. Peruse this list to find an ingredient that interests you, and then contact us to make you a moisture-rich soap. You will be amazed at how your skin will feel after using a bar of soap with these ingredients.

However, using a soap bar with these natural oils and butters is only half the battle - using a good exfoliator before using a good moisturizing soap is a must. Exfoliating the skin first allows the moisturizing benefits to sink into the skin and get to work.

Contact us if you don't find a particular ingredient that interests you but need a nourishing soap bar to help with your dry skin. We can create a custom bar you will love! We love creating custom bars for our customers and can usually accommodate you within just a few days.
