Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc

Noble Formula Bar soap was especially formulated for those with psoriasis, eczema and dry skin, although, it is an excellent cleansing bar for any type of skin or condition; and safe for everyday use. In addition to zinc pyrithione (ZnP), NF Bar Soap also contains a high percentage of nourishing olive oil, moisturizing emu oil, and gently exfoliating oatmeal. ZnP is a form of zinc with antifungal and antibacterial properties. It is used to treat dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, and many other skin conditions. Olive oil is used in soaps as a natural moisturizer. One of the best ways to treat eczema is to keep the skin from drying out. The oil creates a protective barrier for your skin which aids in soft skin. Emu oil is a traditional Australian aboriginal medicine rendered from the fat of the emu. When applied topically, the oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, easing swelling and contributing to the relief of psoriasis and other skin conditions. Calendula, a plant extract, is beneficial for dry or damaged skin and also promotes fast healing and regeneration of the skin do to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Oatmeal is great for the skin. It has been used for treating skin irritations such as acne, dry skin while restoring the natural balance of moisture to the skin.

Honest reviews


Helped Calm My Skin Down

I have oily, sensative skin prone to acne and seborrheic dermatitis. It’s very hard for me to find products that work well with my skin. That said, I think this soap is wonderful. I can’t use it every day – more like once every other day – but it really helps calm the s.d. down and keep my skin happy. It’s also very moisturizing. Would recommend to anyone with similar problems. However I would make sure you store it in a dry place – it would disappear pretty quickly if you kept it in a place where it could get wet.

Love, love, love

I’ve had a very hard time finding anything that clears flare ups of seborrheic dermatitis on my face.Nizoral works well for flare ups on my scalp but I have not had good results with Nizoral on my face, or with any prescription creams. In recent years, everything I tried seemed to cause more irritation and flakiness…which was quite frustratig.I’ve been using Noble soap with a gentle Buf Puff for about 10 days, and the results have been fantastic. I saw improvement after the first use, and the clearing has continued…which is fantastic, as I’m getting married in six days and was hoping to vanquish this latest bout of flakiness before my big day.

It works

I have been using this soap with the noble formula cream and it has worked tremendously well, The only thing that I would like different is for it to have finer exfoliating particles or whatever you would like to call them. Other than that works great. I had dry red scaley skin around my nose and on my chin. Very embarrassing and no matter how expensive of lotions I used nothing helped. This stuff combined with the cream cleared it up right away. Found out I had facial dandruff and this stuff fixed it.

Love it, but it’s pricey.

I have seborrhea dermatitis, this soap healed it immediately. It’s a little pricey though, DermaZinc works well too and it’s cheaper.

Controls dermititis but gives pimples!

November 14/2012As an **exclusive** ZNP bar user for over ten years due to Seborrhea dermatitis I was petrified when I found out it was no longer being made. With only a sliver left I was forced to act FAST. I read one review on Amazon that said she was actually THANKFUL that ZNP had stopped making it because as a result she’d found Noble Formula! Enough said, I was sold!BAR SHAPE: As the photo’s demonstrate this is a rectangular shape with edges on the bar. In my opinion this should be modified. It’s awkward to hold and to use. Eventually this will round out but why not change it to a more pleasing shape? It’s not a deal breaker but you get what I mean.Bar Texture: No other word to use other than slimy! When this bar gets wet it’s a total slime fest! The bumps of oatmeal are probably one of the things that keep it from slipping out of your hand. Who knows, maybe the square form helps? Not sure since my bar hasn’t rounded off yet.Lather: NONE! If you enjoy a nice thick lather be prepared! This doesn’t even give the sense of lather! It is slimy and that’s what you get- PERIOD!Rinse and feel on the face: Ok I’m not going to lie – it feels weird! At first I thought oily and was very concerned it wouldn’t clean my face or rinse off well but it actually does both and rinses off very easily! I would have thought it would `cling’ and give me a dirty maybe even oily feeling. I have a naturally oily face so I was very worried. This rinses so easy and fast it really is shocking! And I’m left with a clean feeling!After the rinse: As already stated once rinsed and dried my face feels soft and CLEAN! There’s none of that tight feeling or dryness in areas! It’s a very spa like result!Exfoliate: Recommended use method: The oatmeal is meant to help gently exfoliate but since I am using this on only my face I am used to lathering in my hand and then applying from hand to face. As a sufferer of dermatitis I’ve always been told not to scrub. So I’m not certain the oatmeal is really any use to me as an exfoliate. I’ve tried to take the bar and apply it directly to my face but it’s awkward. This may be more help if you use it on the body but for me it just helps to grip the bar!Scent: Not much if any at all. There’s really no scent to this when I smell the bar. It does have a slight smell when in use that I don’t care for but the scent is mostly gone once you rinse it off.Overall Review: I did see slightly less drying on my face versus the ZNP bar but with normal use I began to have breakouts! NOT GOOD!Now that the soap bar has worn down some it is less slick because oatmeal in it comes out more. I find the oatmeal rough and could not imagine it being classified as ‘gentle’ but that’s my opinion.Recently my dermatologist recommendaed Cetaphil so I started to use that. I find the Cetaphil does not cause me breakouts but it does not control my dermititis either. As of now I’m using Cetaphil daily but suplimenting with Noble Formula a few times a week (one daily application only) for the areas I have the worst flaking. It seems to be working so fingers crossed!

Very Very good product!

Seems to be working. Have been plagued by Facial Seborrhea for years. I also purchased Z-Care Spray, more Zinc Pyrithione and apply it immediately after washing face with Noble ZInc Soap. When dry I apply an Organic Moisturizer. So far it is fabulous! The Z-Spray is very well priced. It contains alcohol as a carrier for the Zinc which seemed alarming, however it doesn’t dry my skin and again I see big improvement without having to use Steroid Creams. Yay!

Works good

This soap is working well so far. I haven’t built up an immunity to it like other reviewers, but I only use it 3 times a week.

Ebony Hudson, IN

Not Worth it!

I used the entire bar to help my seborrheic dermatitis but saw no improvement. Did not think a second bar would make a difference. The scent was not inviting either.

Rosanna Lake Monroe, FL

nice soap, but did nothing for my seborrheic dermatitis

Was dissapointed after reading all the great reviews on this soap. I have used it for a month now and it has not helped my seborrheic dermatitis at all.But it is a nice natural soap and isn’t over drying so I’ll use it until its gone.

Rae Friendship, AR


Bought two bars. Did not positively change dermatitis. Did make a good substitute for my loofa. And added a super amount of soap scum I have to scrub off.

Lizzie Crichton, WV

Gave me pimples

I don’t break out that easily anymore, but each time I have used this soap I have broken out. I don’t know which ingredient contributed to that.

Janis Kauneonga Lake, NY

This soap works!

My daughter told me about this soap. She and I both have some sebbhorea on our faces. I’ve been really amazed and impressed at how this soap helps clear up the problem, and how quickly. You’re not supposed to use steroid creams on your face, so this soap is a real blessing.

Deirdre Lynnville, KY

Great for dermatitis

I use this for face soap for my seborrheic dermatitis on my face and it keeps it at bay! So glad I found it and have bought several bars over the last couple of years. I hope it never gets discontinued, it has been my saving grace..
