Soap Ingredients for Sensitive Skin

September 24th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sensitive skin is, well, sensitive. And if you have it, you know that you really need to be careful of products you use to cleanse with. There are some things to look out for when making soap that’s very mild – mild enough to use on tender little baby skin. All natural ingredients are best.

You can make a very gentle soap with:

  • coconut oil – to enhances hardness and has a creamy lather but need more emollients added to prevent drying
  • castor oil – to enrich it and make it more emollient
  • palm oil – for mildness and long lasting lather
  • wheat germ oil – adds moisture and luxurious creaminess to the lather
  • olive oil – creates a mild, non-drying soap

A nice touch to this type of soap is some calendula-infused oil and sage essential oil. Calendula is in the marigold family and has long been used as an antiseptic to calm skin inflammations and diaper rash.
