  1. Update: I've been using Collective Wellbeing Detox Soap for maybe 4 days now, and it's definitely *not* breaking me out (yet). So that's good. I still like the smell and that it lathers so well--if I leave it on for too long before rinsing, my cheeks feel very tight. I just dab on a bit of aloe vera or shea butter (a *tiny* bit) onto the cheek-area, and that seems to help w/ that. BUT: I'm peeling! All of the zits on my nasty recent chest breakout (they're never-ending! Chest is the worst area
  2. Thanks for the feedback. And to be clear.. did you mean that you tested Collective well-being's soap and *it* had a ph of 10? Or was that a different soap? Yes - collective wellbeing's soap has a pH of 10. If you are already using a true soap (castile and most bars) they all have alkaline pH's. If your skin is responding well, keep going. Oh, I see.

I'm pretty disturbed at the many discussions of emu oil and shark-based squalene on this site. We're all acne sufferers, and we all understand the pain, but *please* remember that there is animal suffering behind emu oil and shark squalene.

  7. Hey all, I've been lurking for at least a couple years, finally joined up. I'm in my late 20s, still have moderately severe (active, red, never-ending) acne. Also, blackheads, millions of large very dark blackheads. So, in college, I finally got on a prescription retinoid. Did wonders but it never cured my body acne, just my face. Got off of it after a few years because I wanted to find a natural alternative.. Having prepped... my question is, has anyone tried Collective Wellbeing Detox So
