If you have allergies and you can't use a lot of different soaps, this helps you immensely. My doctor told me to give this soap a try because I have sensitive skin. He told me that it is primarily used just for face, but I could use it as a soap. Let me tell you, I love it. Regular soaps always make me itch. So do, washing powders. Changing to this soap, helped to relieve some of the itching and also made me use my allergy medicine a little less. I also changed my detergent for clothes and that helped as well. Coupling the changes have helped me and my entire family.
