Using A New Soap - Battle Goes On

20 years of battle against acne. Not sure how bad accutane (3x) messed my skin up. Just can't control having a few pimples appearing. Tried it all. Change of diet. soaps, OTC topicals, prescription topicals, oral antibiotics. The acne is still here.

Started coal tar soap this week, after a breakout probably due to vitamins.

Anyone else using such soap?


Sodium palmitate

Sodium cocoate

Aqua sodium chloride

Sodium hydroxide


Pinus palustris

o-Tolil biguanide

Safe to use on facial skin?
