Best moisturizing soap for kids
 
My daughter has really sensitive, dry skin. I was thinking of using Arbonne baby line for her but am not sure. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks so much for the reply. I'm currently looking into something more natural with the only un-natural ingrediant being a preservative. But again, thanks anyways!

Weleda might be a brand you would want to check out if you are going for natural.

How about an olive oil soap like Kiss My Face? Or are you looking for more of a "wash"?

I was thinking of a wash. I have used several bar soaps to no avail.

I get the oatmeal soaps from toriandrew for my boys, one has very sensitive and dry skin as well as atopic dermititis. Of course every bath is also followed by a slathering with lotion, I feel so bad doing this in the winter :(

i have to second this recommendation. i know you said that you aren't doing bar soap, but maybe you just haven't found the right one? i'm using tory's creamsicle on my son (with colloidal oatmeal) as well as the double chocolate madness (what i'm using right now) and they are both SO moisturizing, and all natural. i love them!

I use Arbonne baby on my dd and it is wonderful. She has eczema and so long as I am consistent with using it every other day it doesn't show up. Now if I forget and her dry spots show back up, as soon as I use it within just a little bit of time I can see a difference. Love it.

liquid soaps are not natural. only lye/oil soaps are natural. there are so many additives to liquid soap that are skin drying and irritating. I have a calendula and chamomile bar soap that is super mild and non drying, IMO:goodvibes:
