Our moms meant well when they would tell us to stop touching our face (especially now in this pandemic). For a lot of us, acne flares around the time of our teens and eventually wanes. Even if you are well past that age, the bacteria that causes and triggers acne can still cause trouble for the skin.
We have rounded up our six best picks for must-have soaps that fight bacteria not just for acne, but also as an all-rounder.
Crafted from goat's milk and olive oil, this luscious bar of soap is targeted more towards fighting acne. Goat's milk has the proteins of milk products that are known to kill acne-producing bacteria.
This soap is also infused with glutathione, which is known to be an effective antioxidant and a skin lightening agent. It helps to whiten skin, fight age spots, and other skin pigmentation problems.
A soap that is soap-free - yes, you read that here first. This body wash is made out of virgin coconut oil, argan oil, and colloidal oatmeal. This is usually recommended for those who have active breakouts from eczema or skin asthma.
Dermtropics believes in the wonder of coconut oil and strives to create soaps that are the purest in form. Coconut oil is known to reduce bacteria in acne-prone skin, soothes dry, itchy, and sensitive skin, and restore the skin's lipid barrier. It is chock full of antioxidants and Vitamin E. This natural "soap" has no artificial fragrances, no parabens, and is cruelty-free.
Guava is known to contain antioxidants that destroy free radicals that damage the skin. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that cures acne, black spots and pimples, and helps in wound healing. It can also relieve itchiness, rashes, and allergies.
This lather bar is made from real fruit puree with extracts from fresh fruit leaves. This all-natural soap also has anti-aging benefits.
Organic habbatus sauda oil (or black seed oil) has been known to have antifungal properties that detoxifies the skin. This shower cream's protective hydration formula intensively replenishes the skin’s natural moisture for a supple softness you'd love to touch all throughout the day.
Much like its name, Good Virtues Co. is committed to creating halal products with high standards of quality and safety, using only ingredients that are safe and respectful to the environment. This cream is free from mineral oil, SLES, ALES, parabens, synthetic colorants, and is cruelty-free.
5. Organic Alley Face - Clarifying Acne and Scars Soap
This bar is crafted from tea tree oil which fights bacteria, athlete's foot, fungal infection, ringworm, and unwanted body odor. Mixed with activated charcoal, tea tree extracts help fight oiliness and acne and brightens up the skin to make pimple scars less visible.
Not only that, but Organic Alley is also a socially-conscious and empowered brand that seeks to create awareness about the benefits of synthetic-free products. They encourage a sustainable and healthy lifestyle through every jar, soap, and bottle. That's a plus for us.
Chamomile is another anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial wonder of nature. Infused with olive oil, this shower gel is hypoallergenic and moisturizes the skin to keep it healthy and nourished.
This soap, along with others from the Phina's Little Factory line, is handmade using only the best quality ingredients.
