6 Reasons to Choose an Herbal Soap for Dry and Itchy Skin

Dry and itchy skin is not solely caused by lack of moisture. This skin condition is complex which is why it may surprise you to read that the solution may be something as simple as herbal soap for dry skin.

Herbal soaps use soothing and moisturizing ingredients made by Mother Nature herself, so it’s gentler and nourishing to the skin.

Which Type of Soap is Best for Dry Skin?

Dry skin can have mild to severe symptoms. Some people have rough and flaky skin, others have itchy and scaly skin, while others experience peeling or burning sensations due to the dryness.

No matter what causes your dry skin – from irritation from harsh soap, over-scrubbing, dehydration, medication, eczema, or another health condition – you can benefit from an herbal soap. This type of soap is made with natural ingredients that can moisturize, soothe, and nourish rather than irritate.

Why Choose Herbal Soap for Dry and Itchy Skin?

Herbal soap offers numerous benefits, especially for those with dry skin. Here are its benefits:

It’s Made with Natural Ingredients

A lot of soap nowadays is made with surfactants, fragrances, and other harsh cleaning agents that tend to exacerbate dryness. These ingredients allow soap to clean surfaces effectively, but they also strip the skin of its natural oils.

So, when used on dry skin, soaps that use these harsh ingredients can lead to irritation.

Herbal soaps are made with natural ingredients – moringa, sunflower oil, and olive oil – which can remove dirt while keeping the skin moisturized and nourished with omega 6 and 9, plus other vitamins. Moreover, these ingredients are mild on the skin and are less likely to irritate.

It’s Moisturizing

Herbal products like Moringa Soap use ingredients rich in nutrients and minerals. Natural oils like olive oil and sunflower oil not only hydrate the skin but also form a protective barrier to help retain moisture.

Since dry and itchy skin is usually lacking in moisture, the robust moisturizing property of herbal soap makes it the best choice for dry skin. Herbal soaps can help the skin stay hydrated, so it becomes radiant and supple – no more flakes and peeling.

Because herbal soaps are gentle and moisturizing, you can even wash your hair with soap, and it will be as soft and healthy as if you used shampoo and conditioner.

It’s Anti-inflammatory

If your skin is prone to dryness and eczema, it helps to treat it like sensitive skin – avoid products with harsh ingredients that can cause further dehydration or trigger irritation. Using the wrong products can cause flare ups on people with skin conditions like eczema, which is also why we choose mild soap for sensitive skin.

Herbal soaps can help calm down inflammation or irritation caused by excessive dryness, eczema, or sunburn. By using herbal soaps, you can reduce the stinging sensations or itchiness.

By regularly using herbal soaps, you can slowly but surely reduce inflammation and irritation in your skin.

It’s Anti-bacterial but Gentle on the Skin

Most anti-bacterial soaps contain harsh chemicals that, unfortunately, aggravate dry skin. Thankfully, nature has provided plants with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, as well as moisturizing properties that Moringa-O2’s herbal soap uses.

So, even as we prioritize hydration for dry skin, you can use this soap to help remove pimples because of its anti-bacterial properties.

With an herbal soap, you don’t have to sacrifice hygiene or skin health.

It’s Rich in Antioxidants

All the ingredients used in Moringa-O2’s Herbal Soap are rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are key to protecting the skin and encouraging cell regeneration.

Stimulating skin cell regeneration helps encourage faster healing, reduces the build-up of dead skin, and boosts collagen production. This process helps slow down the signs of aging, but more importantly, it keeps the skin healthy and supple.

Keeping the skin supple is key to avoiding flaky, scaly, or peeling skin. You can usually tell which type of soap is best for dry skin by checking if the ingredients help improve skin elasticity.

It’s Fragrance-free

We know you love smelling great, but added fragrances on soap can be one of the culprits behind your skin problems. Some products may use synthetic ingredients to create scents, which in turn, may trigger allergic reactions. So, the best skincare for sensitive and dry skin often comes fragrance-free.

Does this mean you can’t smell like a field of flowers anymore? Not necessarily!

Herbal soaps use natural sources of fragrance – plants – which don’t have the same effects as other fragrances. So, while herbal soaps don’t contain added fragrance, the natural scents of moringa, sunflower oil, and olive oil combine to create a mild but pleasant scent.

Keep Your Skin Happy with Moringa-O2

Dry, itchy skin needs extra tender-loving care to stay healthy and radiant. You don’t need expensive products or multi-step skincare rituals just to keep your skin from becoming flaky.

Sometimes, the simplest soaps are the best solutions, like Moringa-O2’s Herbal Soap for dry skin. Our soap harnesses the benefits of moringa, olive oil, and sunflower oil to help you manage your skin’s symptoms.
