My mom finally went to the derm and they said she's got a soap allergy and it's causing her eczema. They also said there's nothing she can do about her milia besides getting a laser treatment..

What are the "soap" ingredients?? Anyone have got product recommendations? (hair, detergent, facial cleanser, etc, etc)

Hi, there! Smile

I also have eczema prone skin and goatsmilk or olive oil soaps are lovely for me. I buy mine from www.dancingducksorganics.com The owner, Dawn, is really knowledgeable and sends a free full sized gift with ever order. Smile

she should probably just use a castile soap which is(usually, read ingredient list) 100% olive oil and lye. i know lye(aka sodium hydroxide) sounds scary but soap cannot be made without it. you can get these at a natural foods store usually. it is the mildest out there. hth's.

I started using a plain soap, and something my MD said was 'incurable' has gone away. An itchy feeling on my face and backs of hands now hasn't returned. All I did was start using a different soap. (just plain soap from Moondance Soaps -- google for the moondancesoaps website ). They have a Castille soap, but I haven't tried any of their other products yet. Happy just having something that works.

Both goatsmilk and olive oil soaps are like heaven to use, I have both at hand for my morning shower and they are so gentle I can use them for cleansing my face.

Hmmm, I saw Goats Milk soap at that moondancesoaps .com site, but I was worried about ANYTHING that might set me back -- even milk products. Maybe I should try some on my next order with them. Have you had any reactions?

Oh -- and their recipe is just veggie oils and sodium hydroxide --nothing else in the 'plain' soap. I think they use olive oil or canola... don't have the label next to me at the moment.

I have seborrhea and eczema. I cannot use any facial cleanser with SLS, SLES, and castille liquid. I also avoid SLS in shampoos.

I have no allergic reaction with goat milk soap except it was a little too drying for my face. I also tried shea butter soap and it was still too drying for me.

Now I cleanse with my face with camellia oil and wash my hair with shampoo bar followed with AVC rinse.

Castile soap is great, but be sure to get pure olive oil castile soap. I've seen a lot of so called castile soap (Dr Bronners) made with coconut oil, aka sodium lauryl sulfate.

She could try one of the Dove soaps. I started using Dove in the shower a couple of years ago because I found it did not leave any soap scum in the shower. Then I found a lot of strange itchy areas on my body disappeared as well. I tend to stay with it now.

check ingredients as most commercial soaps have SLS and animal ingredients ......(tallow = animal fat ....which I think is in Dove...yeah scary .....)Confused
olive oil soap is always great also with pure lavender oil as its so soothing and healing ....(make sure its pure essential oil though and not an artificial fragrance )

Most commerical soaps are actually detergents.

You might want to try a handcrafted soap. You can google them, and I list of thousands will come up. Look for a soap that is 100% natural. Pure olive oil soap is the gentlest, it can be used on newborns. Stay away from any scented soaps, even those scented with esscential oils. Some people are allergic to certain oils. Before you order soap, ask the company 2 questions.
1. What is the ph of your soap? 7.0 is the most mildest.
2. Is your soap superfatted. You want soap that is, because it is milder. What superfatting means is that extra oil is added to the soap to make it extra mild.
I have seen a lot of people with problem skin using a doctor recommended (read expensive)cleanser have luck with handcrafted soap.

joziegrozy,

I'm sorry I can't recommend anything online. I usually make my own or buy from local craft shows.

Try Elysian Dream online, they have a pure olive oil liquid castile soap. They also have others that have coconut oil, so be careful to read the description to get the pure one. I'll try to link, but I don't think it will let me:
