I need something that I can purchase today at either Hy-Vee or Walmart.

Thank you.

Ivory soap works for my wife.

Dr. Bronner’s: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Dr.-Bronner-39-s-Classic-Pure-Castile-Soap-Eucalyptus-8-oz/24819090 I have used it for my skin, hair, my washing machine when I am washing cashmere sweaters and as dishwashing soap also.

Too funny; here are some other uses for Dr. Bronner’s: Enjoy the creamy emollient lather on baby, bath, beach, body, dentures, mint deodorant, shaving, mouthwash-silk-wool-pets-diapers-car-hand & foot soap.

I got this. Dove unscented. It’s the only soap worth buying. No ridiculous odors.

I’m allergic to Ivory.

I have very sensitive skin and only use Dove beauty bar for sensitive skin. It is available in US but I don’t know about the shops you mention

We use Dr. Bronners castille soap in our house. I have foaming soap dispensers to which I add Dr. Bronners (~⅓) and distilled water (~⅔) and a few drops of essential oils. Then we moisturize with coconut oil.

I second the Dove Unscented bar soap for sensitive skin. It’s the only thing I use at home.

I was looking for some recommendations myself just yesterday and found this excellent old thread.

I use Johnson & Johnson’s liquid baby soap. I have much better luck with liquids, I can even use fragranced ones like Herbal Essence in the orange bottle (it is not for sensitive skin). Bar soap often irritates me.

Try Pears (the soap, not the fruit). They use it on babies in England. It’s not hard to find on line. I am not sure if the Walgreens or Walmarts carry it here, but you could look.

Johnson’s baby soap and pears make a good choice.

I agree with Dr Bronners, great stuff!

I can’t help you with those two stores, but I can recommend this soap: http://realgoods.com/green-home/bed-bath-body/soap/complexion-beauty-pure-soap-bar.

Pure Soap uses almond oil, rather than sodium tallowate, as its fatty acid base. The soap smells wonderful, and it’s very gentle. I use the product because of my vegan lifestyle, but I know people who buy it for sensitive skin.

The only soap I could find today was Dove unscented. I’ll keep an eye out for some of the others if Dove doesn’t help.

Thanks for the suggestions!

We use the Dove for sensitive skin bar and liquid body wash. Most grocery and drug stores seem to carry them around us.
