Further to this post, Kim from Virginia's Soap-Deli has offered this information: The short answer is I cannot guarantee that the customer would not have a reaction to the soap, I don’t know their medical background. The questions I always ask people when they ask that, is what are they sensitive or allergic to? That helps me to pick a soap for them that may work well for them. I also ask what products they are using now? Then I tell them our base is coconut oil, vegetable oil, and olive oil. To the plain oatmeal soap we add oatmeal and vitamin E. If there are no red flags with these ingredients then we work from there to find a product that fits. We test our soaps and products with our allergy sensitive friends & family, asking them to use the sample. Our results are mixed depending on the soap tested and allergies or sensitivities a person may have. Overall, we noticed that our very sensitive friends & family (dry skin, eczema, sensitivities to certain oils or scents) reacted quite well to the plain oatmeal soap, the Munchkin Baby (goats milk) soap and the Big Fat Greek Egg & Lemon soap (barring any egg allergies with the egg soap as there is real egg yolks in it , good vitamin A). Those with respiratory allergies or sinus problems, seemed to be fine. Definition of hypoallergenic: adj. non-allergy producing. A term applied to a preparation in which every possible care has been taken in formulation and production to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions. (Blakiston's Medical Dictionary) So, by definition: hypoallergenic is "having a decreased tendency to provoke an allergic reaction". Based on this definition, our unscented or low scented products would produce less allergens. The definition of non-allergenic is "having no tendency to provoke an allergic reaction". I don’t believe it can be said in truth any product is really non-allergenic. Somebody somewhere will have a reaction. We do not have our soaps tested at a lab and I believe hypo allergenic by definition leaves a lot to be desired. Despite all the reassurances and claims that manufacturers give us about their products in terms of allergy reactivity, nothing is 100% guaranteed to be non-reactive. Which is why we ask on a case by case basis and even though it is just good plain soap, it is a product we use everyday and we want to have the best possible products for people.

Hi Denise, Do you know what your allergy is? These soaps are made with all natural ingredients, no artificial fragrance or colouring, but some people are sensitive to certain ingredients, even "natural" ones. For those with sensitive skin, I would recommend Flatlanders unscented soap or Virginia's Soap Deli offers an oatmeal breakfast bar, that is also unscented. Sometimes even essential oils can cause a problem for some. All of the ingredients are listed on the labels.
