Here is an area I will use to compare the ingredients in soaps I have recently tried.

Ingredients in BOLD are the similar ingredients of the soaps.

RED = bad/irritating

DIAL - Antibacterial, White

Triclocarban = (antibacterial, anti-fungal)

Sodium Tallowate = (soap)

Sodium Palmitate = (mild cleansing, foaming)

Sodium Cocoate or Palm Kernelate = (cleansing agent)


PEG-6 Methyl Ether = (thickener)


Glycerin = (skin softener)

Sorbitol = (skin softener)

Sodium Chloride = (salt)

Tetrasodium Etidronate = (water softener)

Pentasodium Pentetate = (water softener)

BHT = (anti-oxidant)

Titanium Dioxide = (white color)

DOVE - Original, White

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate = (water softener, skin softener)

Stearic Acid = (thickener)

Coconut Acid = (added to give soap a good feel)

Sodium Tallowate = (soap)


Sodium Isethionate = (detergent)

Sodium Stearate = (soap)

Cocamidopropyl Betaine = (detergent decreases irritation)

Sodium Cocoate or Palm Kernelate = (cleansing agent)


Sodium Chloride = (salt)

Tetrasodium EDTA = (water softener, irritant/bad)

Trisodium Etidronate = (irritant, preservative)

BHT = (anti-oxidant)

Titanium Dioxide = (white color)

Sodium Dodecyl Benzene Sulfonate = (detergent)

Overall the Dial caused very little to no breakouts & actually healed prior ones very quickly, and the Dove made my skin break out but only in spots that had pop ups forming - if you know what I mean. :rolleyes:

Maybe the Dove just brought things to the surface? anybody have any input on this? I'm really in a hurry to figure out which soap is best to use on my face b/c all my friends who are acne-free just use soap like Zest, Dial, Dove, etc. and they don't have to worry and I'm new to using soap on my face...
