Balancing Act: Best Soaps to use on Combination Skin


Combination skin can be quite challenging to manage since it exhibits both dry and oily areas. However, with the right skincare routine and suitable products, achieving balance becomes attainable. In this blog post, we’ll explore various soap options specifically designed to address the needs of combination skin. These soaps effectively cleanse and nourish the skin without causing further imbalances. Let’s dive in and discover the perfect soaps for your combination skin.

PLease feel free to follow the links I have provided. These link to the products used in my soaps. I have also linked to products on the website containing these ingredients.

Gentle Cleansing with Jojoba Oil:

Soaps containing jojoba oil may provide gentle cleansing while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture balance. Jojoba oil closely resembles the skin’s sebum, making it suitable for both dry and oily areas. It may help regulate oil production, preventing excessive oiliness in the T-zone while moisturizing dry patches.

Calming Lavender Infusion:

Lavender-infused soaps may cleanse the skin while providing a calming effect. They help control oiliness in the T-zone and soothe dry areas, promoting a balanced complexion.

Our Simply Lavender Soap is made using 100% lavender essenitial oil. It contains no added colours. Perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Balancing Tea Tree Oil:

Soaps containing tea tree oil may effectively cleanse and control excess oil production, preventing breakouts in oily areas. Simultaneously, they may help soothe and nourish dry areas, promoting overall skin balance.

Our Tea Tree liquid soap uses the highest quality tea tree essential oil.

Purifying Charcoal Cleansers:

Charcoal-based soaps may deeply cleanse the pores without stripping away natural moisture. They may help draw out impurities, excess oil, and toxins from the skin, making them suitable for both dry and oily areas. Charcoal soaps leave the skin feeling refreshed, balanced, and revitalized.

Check out our charcoal and tea tree soap bar. Made with activated charcoal and tea tree essential oil.

Nourishing Shea Butter Bars:

Soaps enriched with shea butter may provide hydration to dry patches, soothing any tightness or flakiness. At the same time, they have a non-greasy texture that won’t clog pores or contribute to excessive oiliness, thus maintaining a balanced complexion.

Our bath truffles are made using shea butter. This helps with the soft and norishing feel when lathered.

Mild Aloe Vera Cleansers:

Soaps containing aloe vera may provide gentle cleansing while moisturizing dry areas and calming any redness or irritation. They may help maintain the skin’s natural pH balance, preventing excess oiliness and promoting a harmonious complexion.

I don’t currently have any soaps made with Aloe Vera but I would use melt & pour Aloe Vera as it is far more versitile.

Hyaluronic Acid Infused Soaps:

Soaps infused with hyaluronic acid may help lock in moisture, providing hydration to dry patches without exacerbating oiliness. They may leave the skin feeling plump, balanced, and radiant.


Finding the right soap for combination skin can be a balancing act, but it’s certainly achievable with the right ingredients and formulations. Soaps enriched with jojoba oil, lavender, tea tree oil, charcoal, shea butter, fruit enzymes, aloe vera, or hyaluronic acid can effectively address the unique needs of combination skin. By incorporating these soaps into your skincare routine, you can maintain a balanced complexion and enjoy healthy, radiant skin.
