Human Nature 100% Natural Cleansing Bar Soap – Used Up and Reviewed

Some months back, one of my workmates resigned and she gave us all a parting gift — mine was this soap by Human Nature.

I knew it was only a matter of time before Human Nature comes out with a bar soap.

Isn’t the box packaging lovely?

The bar is white, almost opaque, with an inscription of the brand name and heart logo.

General Info:

  • Price: Php 64.75 for a 120g. bar
  • Available at Rustan’s Supermarket, Shopwise, and the Human Nature website.
  • Ingredients: Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, aqua, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate (sugarcane-derived), sodium gluconate (sugarcane-derived), coco glucoside (coconut-derived), glyceryl oleate (coconut-derived), stearic acid, decyl glucoside (coconut-derived)

Experience:

As expected of natural soaps, this gets used up fast. I didn’t experience melting, a la dove-type of goopy soap, because I have an awesome soap dispenser.  However, I noticed significant diminution after every use.

This is the least drying of all natural and organic soaps I’ve tried. Saponified oil-type bar soaps are usually drying in general — this one isn’t.  On their website, it says:

…Cold-processing, on the other hand, produces high-quality soap that retains beneficial natural glycerin which keeps skin soft and hydrated. As a bonus, cold-processing consumes less energy and produces less waste – so it’s not only skin-friendly, but eco-friendly as well!

Perhaps that’s why it didn’t dry my skin out.  Note: I used this only on my body and my skin-type is normal.

I can’t really say much about this except that it’s a good basic no-frills bar soap that cleans the skin well. It also didn’t irritate my skin the whole time I was using it.

If you’ve been looking for BHT-free, EDTA-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and “other-bad-stuff-free” bar soap for a long long time, you should consider trying this.

Repurchase?

Not soon. I’m in a Lush soap craze this summer.

  6. Thank you!I used to use the sunflower oil after baths but for the summer, I use their baby oil. It's still sunflower oil but mixed with some other stuff so it's less greasy.

    hi rae!Nice blog you have here 🙂 Good to read a positive review on their latest product. I was into human heart nature products last year (face powder, cleanser, shampoo etc) but I am now just using the sunflower seed beauty oil for my hair and as a makeup remover substitute.http://thebudgetfashionseeker.blogspot.com

  9. I think sponges accumulate bacteria because they're almost always left wet. This one's made of a pliable plastic material that doesn't absorb water and the holes between the webbings are almost pea-sized. By every next use, the soap dispenser is very dry na. I also clean it every week with the soap residues left on it 😛

    Isn't it unhygienic? Dba sponges tend to accumulate bacteria?

  11. Me too. I like scented soaps, esp those that smell like food.The soap dispenser is from Muji — it is a sponge but the holes (?) or space between the webbings are bigger.

    Human Nature always has cute graphic design on their packaging. I like your soap dispenser. Is it sponge? Or does it only looks like one? This'll be a great soap for me if ever my allergies start acting up again. But I wouldn't use this on a daily basis. I like my soap to have fragrance. 🙂http://ahintofsunlight.blogspot.com/
