Thought this would not be filled with fragrance, because fragrance is NOT hypoallergenic ever…don’t care what anyone may try to tell you. This has fragrance and I could not use it, had to give it away. Would not recommend this to anyone who is super sensitive.
basic for hand, complexion, or other
I first met this bar soap a few years ago as “pure & natural.” It’s a great *basic* hand or complexion soap: bright white that doesn’t crack; silky smooth feel; light, fresh scent; washes off easily with no residue. For anyone who’s typically allergic to soaps and detergents, it probably would be fine for getting clean in tub or shower, too. Although that’s not usually me, in the past I have gotten a skin rash from some laundry detergents and from a few some soap bars, and Dial Basic caused no such reaction.
great for people with allergies
We have used Dial soap for more years than I want to admit, but in the last few years the antibiotic variety coupled with the hard water in our new house was drying and seemed harsh. This bar is perfect without too much in the way of chemicals. Nice fragrance of clean soap without perfume. It rinses well in the hardest water.
One of the very few soap brands that I can use (Pure & Natural renamed)
Basic is what used to be ‘Pure & Natural’.Many, many years ago, I developed a mild allergy to perfumes and fragrances – long story. Ever since, I had to say goodbye to all of them wonderful, moisturizing, deodorant, skin-conditioning, lathery soaps. It’s been Pure & Natural or Basic for me when it comes to soap and unscented baby powder when it comes to deodorants. I occasionally use Johnson & Johnson bars but they tend to be a bit more expensive. And, you know what? I feel much cleaner, more comfortable, fresher than ‘before’ Basic and, after more than 10 years of daily and almost-exclusive use I am unaware of any unwanted side-effects.What you get with Basic is an honest, inexpensive soap that keeps your skin honestly clean and healthy. Or so is my experience.Piece of advice – I’d check with my local supermarket before placing an order here. Hopefully, one day, this item will be available under the super-saver program.
I break out from EVERYTHING! I can’t use Dove or any of the other soaps that claim to be for sensitive skin. Or I’ll start using a so-called sensitive skin soap – then my skin becomes irritated later. Dial Basics is the only soap I’ve used that has not irritated my skin. I have begun hoarding the soap because I’m afraid I won’t be able to find it one day. I’ve noted other reviewers comments that the soap is already discontinued. I figure I’ll need to appeal to the company directly to keep it!!
Dial Basics Hypoallergenic Bar Soap
This is a great soap. It doesn’t make you itch, and isn’t perfumed. There is a very slight scent, but it is a soap scent, not perfume, and goes away while you’re rinsing. It’s very gentle, suds up well, rinses off well, and leaves your skin feeling good. (If you want to wear some perfume, it doesn’t have to battle with your soap!) If you can’t find it in a store, you can order it on-line.I am very allergic to most soaps, breaking out in a rash, so I was thrilled to find the Dial Basics.I highly recommend it.
