Soaps for sensitive skin
For a sensitive skin, it is advisable to choose a soap that is superfat, without detergents, with an elevated content of glycerine and which does not remove the natural lipids from the skin. high.
My soaps are made using exclusively natural oils, so they are free of detergents.
I use production methods that date back to the 11th century. The process of turning oils into soap produces natural glycerin as a byproduct and the old production methods leave the glycerine in the soap, contrary to industrial soap production. Since glycerine absorbs moisture from the air, this helps keeping the skin hydrated.
My solid soaps are superfat. Superfat means that there is a small percentage of the oils that are left in their original form and not converted into soap. These oils will stay on the skin after use of the soap, hydrate and nourish the skin and therefore avoid the feeling of tight or dry skin that often results from the use of industrial soaps.
By precaution, it is advisable to avoid colouring agents and perfumes since the can give rise to allegergic reactions or irritation.
For a soap developed specifically for sensitive skin, see for example the soap Freya.
