Should I Use Bar Soap On My Face?

Is it okay to wash your face with bar soap?

In most instances no. Most bar soaps are made with ingredients and chemicals that are too harsh and irritating for your face.

Most bar soaps contain SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), among other ingredients that aren't face-friendly. The addition of these ingredients can leave your skin dry and irritated.
