Sensitive skin easily affected by even small touches. This type of skin immediately turns into the red even, small pH change or insects.

These skin type persons better to get advice from the doctors in selecting a soap. Choosing the wrong soap will affect severely.

Dry Skin:

Dry skin peoples have less oil or moisture in their skin. Naturally, their oil glands secrete low sebum so, using the oil contained soaps will rectify this problem. Moisture soaps with better TFM help to increase the oil content. These soaps reduce the white patches produce by the naturally dry skin.


Oilskins are just opposite to the dry skin. Oil glands secrete more oil than usual. Too much of oil always present the face like a greasy one. So, reduce the too much of oil we use soaps without moisture. Soaps contain aloe vera, turmeric and other some contents without that moisture.
