Here’s a real find:

I tried the Savon de Marseille Extra Pur Orange. It’s a liquid soap with a heavenly fragrance. The ingredients are: Water, Potassium Cocoate, Fragrance, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cocos Nucifera, Tetrasodium EDTA, BHT, Limonene, Linalool, Citral. It seems to clean well without drying, very nice. The scent doesn’t seem to remain on my hands, but washing with this stuff is a little dose of aromatherapy. There are other similarly wonderful scents, like grapefruit and apple.

The only drawback seems to be the price. Ouch. Imported from France.

A wonderful surprise in the bar soap realm is Tea Tree Therapy Vegetable Base Soap with Tea Tree Oil. Made in USA, distributed by Tea Tree Therapy, Inc., Ventura, CA. This is a great bar soap that gets the skin clean, rinses well, is not drying yet doesn’t leave any sticky feeling as some more moisturizing soaps do. Tea tree oil is supposed to be a natural antiseptic. This soap has a fragrance, but it’s so mild, I initially thought it was unscented. I hope they keep it that way!

Ingredients of Tea Tree Therapy Vegetable Base Soap: Vegetable Base (Sodium Palmate and Sodium Cocoate), Purified Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Natural Fragrance, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, Tea Tree Oil, Iron Oxide, Tetra Sodium Etidronate, Tetra Sodium EDTA.

Note: Please see later entry in this blog about tea tree oil and potential concerns with children.
