I've read that Ivory Soap is not good for your skin. I don't remember where I read it, but I remember it was a website comparing different products including bar soaps and whether or not they are good for your skin (will cause acne) and Ivory soap was rated very poorly.

You wanna keep your soap as simple as possible man. Simple = better.
I have no idea what people see in life. All I see is how painful it is to live, is this it?

IVORY= BAD, AT least in my case. I thought I was doing the right thing by using IVORY, however it really screwed up my skin. It dried it out worse than the BASIC bar (which I currently use). Also it seemed to upset my skins natural balance. When used with BP I had more reddness than usual.

Hope this helps.

The only way that I'd use ivory soap is if I was cleansing with it sort of like on a rotation.. like ivory once then 3 days of cetaphil or dove.. then ivory again. It helps keep oil in check but not a bar soap I'd consider using everyday.

Hope this helps
Regimen:
AM:
-Wash with cetaphil gentle bar
-Apply cetaphil 15spf moisturizer
- Apply clinique concealer to even my skin tone, under eyes and on any other spots that need hiding..
-Supplements: Evening Primrose Oil and Vitamin E, Vitamin D, 500mg vitamin C, Iron supplement

PM:

-Wash makeup off with cetaphil gentle bar, usually twice
-Pat face dry with soft clean towel and gently apply alpha hydrox 12% souffle
-Wait & moisturize w/Jamieson Vitamin A night treatment on dry spots, around eyes.
-take yasmin

Current Status: Clear of zits but with quite a few stubborn red marks
Throughout the day I drink 2 litres of water, eat veggies and fruit
and workout at the gym 6 days a week

I wouldn't use ivory. If your going to use a bar soap use dove (original). But try using cetaphil or panoxyl 5 (5% BP) it works great!!

I recommend Dove bar for sensitive skin. It has no colorings or artificial fragrance, and is very gentle. I used regular Dove bar for years, but when the Dove bar for sensitive skin came out, I found it was much gentler on my skin. I use this as a staple, rotating with other gentle cleansers mentioned on this board, just to see what's out there!

Ivory soap is really harsh & drying, despite 100+ years of advertising how "pure" it is.

Discussion of the story behind the floating here.

I think a big reason to avoid Ivory bar soap (beyond how drying it can be) is the stink of it. I say "stink" rather than fragrance, because the scent bothers a lot of people. It can really linger on you. True story: I know of a pediatrician who would refuse to examine babies who were washed with Ivory!

And a maybe-even-weirder-than-the-floating fun fact: Ivory Soap is an ingredient in "stink bait" recipes for fishing. Just one example recipe here.

None of the bars mentioned are worth anything for oily and acne prone skin, absolutely dreadful!

I agree. I have very thick, oily, "unsensitive" skin and Ivory soap is about the only thing in the world that irritates me. And the smell is awful, IMO (as a previous poster stated).

I say no to Ivory.

I use dove/ivory body soap everyday on my face when i shower, because i need some friction between my fingers and my face so i can rub off all that dead skin eusa_sick.gif. I've been using it for years lol, nothing bad has happened to my face cool.gif
