Many health shops now carry a range of excellent soaps. Nowadays, better quality soaps are readily available. Amongst the nicest is a ‘pure’ natural olive oil soap. Most are unscented. For scented soaps, try avoid those that are too commercial, since the scents are synthetic and might annoy your nose or skin later on. Visit shops that specialise in Eastern goods. Indian ‘Mysore’ sandalwood is much sweeter than the Chinese ‘Bees and Flowers’ brand, which includes sandalwood, ginseng, jasmine and rose. they are not made from natural oils but they are still a delight. Kama, in India (go online) has an astonishingly good range of excellent soaps. One Village (UK based, go online) has a couple of high quality, low cost soaps. Aside from the European fancy and usually expensive and over-scented soaps, there are many local ‘clear’ soaps that are wonderful. Africology seems to be making a decent ‘charcoal’ soap thats not too scented. There are lots of other local small producers. Their product is far nicer that a bar of Ponds or Lux.  Avoid the Body Shop. Don’t buy your soaps at Woolies. Ylang-ylang, patchouli, honey-scented and many more, there are dozens of flavours to choose from. Even ‘Pears’ and ‘Johnson’s Baby Soap’, available in all supermarkets, are quite acceptable. Of course these are personal opinions. Feel free to disagree. At least ‘splash out’ for a special soap for a special bath time. The problem with most commercial soaps is that they dry the skin out quite a bit. And different soaps react differently to individual people’s skin. This can be countered by using body oils or a basic, easily available body cream afterwards. It’s the only body you will have. Be nice.,
