Look for soaps with all natural ingredients and probably fewer ingredients so you can tease out what is aggravating your allergies.

Avoid soaps with sodium laurel sulphate.

Don't blame it on the Lavendar, for sure!! Johnson's baby junk is anything but - I never would use any of the Johnson's baby soaps on my baby!! Not sure what sort of allergy symptoms you are having, but there are lots of awful ingredients on those Johnsons products! I don't even have a bottle here at home to read off the ingredients. There is a wonderful book by Ruth Winter "A consumers Guide to Food Additives" and the sister book is along the lines of ...guide to cosmetics additives or some such, which includes shampoo, body washes, etc etc. SLS (sodium laureth sulfate) and similar are also allergens... Triclosan is another thst isn't good ... Just have to research the various ingredients and there are lots of online sources discussing ingredients and typical allergy reactions etc.

I have some Lavendar hand soap made locally by a farmer who used coconut and other veggie oils (no lard or tallow) in her soap and it's yummy. No itchy!!

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

I had been using Johnson's lavender baby soap for 2-3 years, but have developed an allergy to it. I am going to guess it is the fragrance & there is probably one w/out fragrance I could try. Couldln't figure out what else it might be.

What are some of the soaps you find work well for you? I know I have an allergy to formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasing preservatives that are used in some soaps.
