Soap for Treatment of Eczema and Psoriasis
Here are some tips to select the right soap for eczema and psoriasis treatment.
- GO FRAGRANCE FREE – It is highly recommended to use an unscented soap as the skin might react to certain fragrances or essential oils.
- OATMEAL for ECZEMA TREATMENT – Many eczema sufferer experience significant improvements from using soap containing oats which has been used for centuries to cure eczema and has shown “significant clinical improvements” in a recent medical study.* If using oatmeal soap for eczema with scabs or very raw skin, we recommend lathering the soap on hands first, then applying to affected areas, as the oats might act as an exfoliator on very raw skin.
- ACTIVATED CHARCOAL FOR PSORIASIS TREATMENT – activated charcoal helps cleanse and detox skin from contaminants without harsh chemicals, thus reducing problems for people with eczema and psoriasis.
Recommended Soap for Eczema and Psoriasis
- Oatmeal Honey Goat Milk Soap (For Eczema & Psoriasis) – for those who prefer goat milk as an added moisturizer and for its anti-itch effect.
- Organic Shea Oatmeal Honey Soap (For Eczema & Psoriasis) – for those who prefer organic ingredients or with goat’s milk sensitivity. Contains shea butter for great moisturising and a touch of rosemary to help treat eczema too!
- Himalayan Salt Soap with Shea Butter (for Eczema and Psoriasis) – for those who prefer an added touch of salts for healing and shea butter for added moisturising effect!
- Organic Activated Charcoal Soap (for Psoriasis) – activated charcoal for natural detox and deep cleansing.
- We do not recommend frequent and excessive use of steroidal creams especially for children. Steroid creams further thin the skin and reduce its immunity, making . It might not be easy to break your reliance on it but we encourage you to Go NATURAL to Heal. With the use of natural emollients and ingredients, it will minimise the irritations and allergenic reactions from harsh chemicals. Of course make sure your skin is not allergic to any of the natural ingredients.
- Our soaps are saponified with all natural plant bases such as sunflower oil, palm oil, soybean oil, olive oil, and coconut oil. These natural ingredients are natural emollients that leave your skin feeling highly moisturised even after frequent use. Many of our satisfied customers do not even need to lotion up after using our soaps. However for eczema, we recommend a moisturiser as it serves as an extra layer of protection on the skin against bacteria.
- Avoid use of products containing parabens and SLS or unreadable chemical names on your skin! (Find out what you need to know about Parabens here) or go to our SOAP GUIDE section to know more about how to SAVE YOUR SKIN.
- Moisturise, moisturise! Moisturise, Protect & Heal with our Organic Body Balm/Lotion Bar (Unscented)Among the 3 balms/lotion bars we have, we recommend the Unscented one for those with Eczema, as eczema and scent of any kind no matter how natural might not go well together with such sensitivity
- For a balm within reach at all times to prevent flare ups, get a travel-sized one at 10g
- For easier and convenient application to the body, a regular-sized balm is available at approx 57g.
- Lastly, avoid scratching (we know it’s hard!) as scratching breaks the skin’s barrier function down and allows more bacteria to gain entry to the sub layers of the skin. Using soap with oats, goat’s milk and tea tree can help soothe itch.
Note: Eczema flares up due to stress and certain kinds of food allergens too and is best dealt with holistically by managing stress levels, food and skincare.

Oh I love this soap! I usually like fragrance in my soap but with this soap I don’t care. This reason why I love this soap is not for scent but because it makes my skin feel so soft and silky. It has all natural oils in the soap and pure himalayan salt. The soap just glides off my skin with lingering oils but washes right off just leaving my skin soft and clean. I received this product for a discount for my honest review, however I’m buying another bar with the discount card I received in the cute pouch. There’s nothing not to like about this soap. All natural, pure ingredients! Thank you so much! I’m looking forward to doing more business with this company in the near future!
