Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap Aloe Refill
Top Questions See all 7 Q&A
We have used this brand from Softsoap for many years. We have tried other, cheaper alternatives, but have not been happy. This particular brand from this manufacturer does not cause redness and irritation, like some of the other scents. We wash our hands a lot, because we have a lot of pets, so we need something that is mild and hopefully has a nice scent. This brand and this scent fits the bill just fine.
You can likely get a better deal by shopping around. A recent price for a Softsoap refill at Target (on sale) is $4.15 for 56 oz. If you use your Target Redcard that is another 5% off, or $3.94. Comparing the storebrand at Walmart, I found that it was not any cheaper--$3.97 for 56 oz. So, waiting for the product on sale at Target, for example, seems to be a good strategy.
Here's an interesting tidbit about Aloe Vera: Thousands of years ago, the ancient Egyptians called Aloe Vera the "plant of immortality". They held the plant in such high regard, that they honored their deceased pharaohs with a burial gift of this! (Aloe vera, I mean, not Softsoap!) Well, I don't think it's really the "plant of immortality," but we like it for our hands.
In case you're interested, the manufacturer lists these ingredients. Probably not actually much aloe vera, since it's way down the list:
* Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate
* Cocamidopropyl Betaine
* Glycol Stearate
* Sodium Chloride
* DMDM Hydantoin
* Citric Acid
* Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
* Tetrasodium EDTA
* Poloxamer 124
* Hydrolyzed Silk
If you're interested in other liquid soap products with Aloe Vera, you might try these, but some are much more expensive:
All in all an excellent product at a reasonable price. Plus, our hands like it. We will continue to buy, but I
don't think we'll be burying any of it with anyone soon.
With a new baby, we wash our hands (and have every visitor do the same!) many times a day. This soap is super affordable and leaves my hands feeling soothed and soft instead of parched and cracked with the Dial orange soap. The smell is mild and pleasant, not overpowering at all. I love these huge refills - I've filled up four dispensers and I've only used 1/4 of one of the bottles. These will last a looooong time and I won't have to keep buying the individual bottles of soap and clogging up the landfills.
