Default Natural/Organic Body Soap or Soap Bars?

Can anyone recommend "natural", "organic", or at least "safe" body/soap bars that would do more good than harm to your skin/body in the long run?

I find any of the "homemade" variety to be great for skin. I make my own and my skin has never been better! I wouldn't buy any store bought.

Chagrin Valley is the well known soap bar company on the internet.

I've been using the Chagrin Valley castile soap bars from head to toe for several months now and love them. My skin has always been sensitive, especially on my face. I had no reaction at all to the castile, and my skin looks and feels great. They have a large variety depending on your skin's needs, and their customer service is excellent.

I like the South of France brand of bar soap. I buy mine off Vitacost.

I always hear wonderful things about the Castile soaps. Several brands get great reviews in liquid or bar form. I know Dr. Bronners is available in most drug stores now, and several can be used as shampoos, body wash, and some as toothpaste. I always think back to the traditional Castile and end up avoiding. You only broke that out when you were covered in oil or grease, etc., but I know they have several types now.


I have hypersensitive skin and Canus Lait de Chevre Fragrance Free Goat's Milk Soap and Lotion work best for me. It's the only bar soap I have ever used that does not dry my skin, and I have tried multiple brands of organic and homemade soaps. It actually corrects my dryness and irritation. Goats milk is said to be the closest to a human bodies Ph that you can find.
