Many soaps and body washes available in supermarkets and chemists that are marketed towards those with sensitive skin are actually full of known skin irritants themselves (Lauric Acid, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Alumina, and Mineral oil for example).
But we've found these natural, fragrance free soaps for sensitive skin that you can absolutely trust! They're all guaranteed palm oil free, petrochemical free, and made here in Australia by small local businesses. For many of you who are sensitive to fragrance, it's not just the synthetic parfums that are the issue. Essential oils can also cause irritation, so for us...
fragrance free means they have no essential oils either.
