Some months back, one of my workmates resigned and she gave us all a parting gift — mine was this soap by Human Nature.
I knew it was only a matter of time before Human Nature comes out with a bar soap.
Isn’t the box packaging lovely?
The bar is white, almost opaque, with an inscription of the brand name and heart logo.
- Price: Php 64.75 for a 120g. bar
- Available at Rustan’s Supermarket, Shopwise, and the Human Nature website.
- Ingredients: Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, aqua, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate (sugarcane-derived), sodium gluconate (sugarcane-derived), coco glucoside (coconut-derived), glyceryl oleate (coconut-derived), stearic acid, decyl glucoside (coconut-derived)
As expected of natural soaps, this gets used up fast. I didn’t experience melting, a la dove-type of goopy soap, because I have an awesome soap dispenser. However, I noticed significant diminution after every use.
This is the least drying of all natural and organic soaps I’ve tried. Saponified oil-type bar soaps are usually drying in general — this one isn’t. On their website, it says:
“…Cold-processing, on the other hand, produces high-quality soap that retains beneficial natural glycerin which keeps skin soft and hydrated. As a bonus, cold-processing consumes less energy and produces less waste – so it’s not only skin-friendly, but eco-friendly as well!”
Perhaps that’s why it didn’t dry my skin out. For reference, I used this only on my body and my skin-type is normal.
I can’t really say much about this except that it’s a good basic no-frills bar soap that cleans the skin well. It also didn’t irritate my skin the whole time I was using it.
If you’ve been looking for BHT-free, EDTA-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and “other-bad-stuff-free” bar soap for a long long time, you should consider trying this.
Not soon. I’m in a Lush soap craze this summer.
