Our faces are one of the most sensitive areas of our bodies. The skin is different from the rest of our skin due to the abundance of sebaceous glands that secrete sebum. The oils that naturally lubricate our skin can also trap dead skin cells and dirt causing blemishes. The skin cells of the face are also finer and have more pores which means there is less of a barrier to environmental pollutants and chemicals in products. Facial skin is also more prone to water loss.
All of our soaps are naturally moisturizing. So what makes a complexion soap? Our complexion soaps are superfatted a bit more than body soaps to assure they're extra moisturizing. They are unscented or very lightly scented with pure essential oils known to be good for facial skin. The soaps we recommend as complexion soaps are formulated with facial clays, extra butters and skin moisturizing and nourishing ingredients that add new life to dull, sluggish complexions.
And with that said, I have used all of our soaps on my face. My face’s favorites often contain lots of coconut milk, like the Coconut Grove and Lavender Oatmeal, neither of which are considered complexion soaps. Try different samples, because in the end your choice of facial soap depends on your unique skin type.
