If there’s anything that the last two years have taught us about the world we live in today, it’s that a lot of us could be paying more attention to our hygiene. While using a bar of soap is great, there are also many different things to take into consideration when doing so. We’ve outlined them for you and listed some of the best bar soaps on the market.

How to pick the best bar soap for you

  • Consider industrial vs. handmade – It’s not that industrial soap is the worst thing in the world, but it can often contain artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and detergents. Industrial soap does have its benefits, like a lower price and higher availability, but if you want to go the extra material, definitely go for the soap bars that have been made with more care, vegetable-based oils and essential oils.
  • Consider scent – After figuring out if your soap has a synthetic fragrance or not, there is the important step of discovering what smell you like the most. Consider not only the scent, but the strength of it and how you might want to layer it with a cologne.
  • Consider the effect on your skin – No matter how well a soap is made, some ingredients just might not sit right on your skin. The last thing you want is a bar of soap that causes irritation every time you use it.
