My skin went into immediate healing mode when I finally tried this soap. I have terribly sensitive skin, but I love several of the scents and can "tolerate" them. I get lots of flaking, managed with lotion and I must get lotion on as soon as I have dried. Had to maintain later in day. NOW, I don't have the flakes in between showers, and don't have to use additional lotion. But the biggest benefit is hard to describe. It is like the whole layer of my skin surface has relaxed. Thank you for this soap.
