As a rule, most soaps tend to dry out the skin and are not suited for anyone with dry-skin problems. However, for the common man on the street without skin problems, it wouldn’t make any difference whatever he/ she uses.
Te best soaps however are ones that retain moisture on the skin 9should be pH neutal). Most medicated soap substitutes available in local pharmacies are adequate. However if patients insist on using a foaming ‘soap’, I generally recommend the ‘Dove’ perfume free range.
