@bluedolphin-- That's absolutely right. The best soap is a soap made with lard, water and lye and that's it.
I use this kind of soap. It's not cheap but it lasts me a long time and I never have issues like sensitive, dry skin which I used to have before. I love that this soap is so basic without any fragrances, parabens, etc. For those who want old-fashioned soap that's great for skin, this is the right option. It makes skin so soft and healthy.
