Rub a Dub Dub

I have talked about sensitivity to chemicals and the layers of fragrance that many wear in any given day.  We have discussed safe soaps for those with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity).  For years I bathed with an Unscented deodorant  soap from Tom’s of Maine.  I tolerated it very well.  One day I was at a grocery store that I shop at and I couldn’t find my soap.  My first thought was that they were just out of it.  I went home and started searching.  If I managed to find it, there would be a note that it was unavailable.  After searching long and hard I phoned Tom’s of Maine only to find out that it was no longer being made.

I was devastated!  I made another trip to the store and decided to try pure castile soap.  While I don’t react to it, I do not like the scent of it.  Recently my husband and I made another trip and I grabbed three bars to try.  A few days ago, I unwrapped the bar of Dead Sea Minerals soap made by One with Nature.  I don’t react and it doesn’t have the strong scent that castile soap has.  One with Nature has several different bars of soap.  Mine is Dead Sea Salt – Triple Milled Soap with Argan Oil and Shea Butter.  I still have the other two to try and will report back on them when I have.  In the meantime, I think I need to stock up on this soap before it disappears.

  2. It drives me batty when health products that I love are discontinued. For me, it’s an annoyance, but for you, it’s a big deal.

    I LOVE the look of that soap! I hope the others are just as good.

    • Yes, majorly annoying. I plan on placing a large order online today or tomorrow. If I wait until next week it may be gone. I can’t take for granted that things I find safe for me will always be around.

  3. ….maybe that’s the reason I’ve turned into a neurotic horder… 🙂

  4. It’s so hard, and aggravating, having to find something different to switch to, especially with sensitivities. I’m glad this one worked for you.

  5. Ahhh I HATE it when my “things” are discontinued! Like, how rude. I was buying that. Geeze.
