This soap is purchased mail order because it is in no stores around here. It is the one soap that my husband can use; he cannot tolerate most scents of soap, and most have scents; this one is truly is made for the hypoallergic folks. As a bonus, it cleans well, and does not melt away. It does not smell badly either; there's not much smell at all. In general this is the one soap that meets all requirements. Here we live in a heavily populated surburban area, and this soap is nowhere around here. It seems like the only way we can find it is to mail order it from Drugstore.com.

Comments about Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented, 3.25 oz:

I've been using Ivory soap all of my life. Ivory was the cheapest and purest. We had a large family and everyone was able to use it safely, but my problem, as I began to age, was the dryness of Ivory, and how quickly it dissolved with use. I love the scent but if I could find something that didn't dissolve as quickly, that lasted longer, I would switch. When I found Grandpas Baking Soda soap, I was able to stop using my Ivory, after almost 60 years. One shower with it convinced me. And it is genuinely Unscented so it doesn't clash with your perfumes or colognes. I just wish the bar was larger. It doesn't float, but it cleans well, deodorizes, moisturizers, which is unusual for most bar soaps, and is great for face and all my sensitive parts. It doesn't dissolve as quickly so it outlasts Ivory. The ratio with Ivory is 3 to 1. So, although it costs a little more, it is worth it, especially when you get your 5% from other purchases and can stock up. Another thing I like is that it doesn't break apart easily when you're close to the end. I hope DS.com keeps this in stock, because I'll need it for the next 40 years or so.

    There is no better soap I've tried for my sensitive skin. It lathers well, does not irritate, and keeps odor away as well as any deodorant soap.

    Comments about Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented, 3.25 oz:

    I like this soap. It's light, lathers nicely, washes off completely. My only complaint is that it's a bit drying for my already dry skin but that may change in spring.

      We used this soap in the kitchen first. Deodorized hands perfectly after handling onions, say. Then washed our faces after working in the yard. AWESOME smoothness. VERY refreshing. Left skin smooth and fresh. Turns out to be maybe the perfect soap.

        Comments about Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented, 3.25 oz:

        I use this soap to wash my hands, or in the shower. My brother had an awful rash that was bothering him. I had him use the soap and it started to clear up his rash almost immediately. So, I let him have the bar. I think that too many chemicals and too much caustic stuff is in our products, and we are developing sensitivities. I am "Beauty Conscious", and know that less is better, in that regard. I know and understand every ingredient on the label of the box of this soap.

        Comments about Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented, 3.25 oz:

        This soap is great for sensitive skin. It's mild and unscented, but the little bit of baking soda makes it a very effective cleanser. It can be a bit hard to hold in the shower, but that's a very minor inconvenience in such a nice soap. The price is quite reasonable too!

          Comments about Grandpa's Vegetable Based All Purpose Baking Soda Soap, Unscented, 3.25 oz:

          This soap by Grandpa's works wonderfully at removing oil and/or makeup at the end of the day. I love that there's no scent, that it lathers up real nice, and since I have an oily complexion, it feels clean and smooth. I use it in conjunction with Queen Helene's Mint Julep Facial Scrub (I use the scrub in the morning and at night and if I need a pick me up in the afternoon or evening, I'll use Grandpa's soap). I've read that for certain people it doesn't last very long. I would agree if one uses it twice a day everyday, but like I stated above, I mainly use it to remove makeup or just for a quick wash after a workout or on a hot day -- plus I only use this on my face. I would recommend storing it in a dry place or getting one of those travel soap holders (the ones that have a lid). And it would also help to use it along with another product, like I do.

                The only bad thing is that I don't know where to go to pick some up in a store.Its really great. The baking soda makes it clean even better than usual soap. It has mild exfoliating quality like baking soda does with its gentle scrub properties in a soap form. Its not painful or rough. Its just what I wanted.It has NO smell at all, just like it says "unscented." If more people bought it maybe the price would go down or it would be available in stores all over. I haven't tried the other soaps in the Grandpa's line, but I wonder now what they are like.I gave it 4 stars not 5 stars because it is not a bargain, and I am not used to paying [$] [...] for one bar of soap.
