"First Class Protection"

Dettol Soap is something that I have been using for a very long time and I have all praises for this excellent product.

The name Dettol is synonymous with antibacterial protection and the soap is no different.

Not only is it an antibacterial but the newest version also contains a moisturizing ingredient. This therefore not long protects your skin from infections but also leaves it extremely fresh, clean and moisturized.

Dettol tackles bacteria and germs like no other soap and these include the dangerous “coli” and “salmonella” germs.

The “coli” germ is capable of producing a powerful toxin that causes an infection that can lead to mild and severe diarrhea. The “salmonella” germ is a bacteria more associated to severe food poisoning.

The basic ingredients of Dettol Soap are: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Parfum, Glycerin, Chloroxylenol, Triclosan, Tetrasodium EDTA and Etidronic acid.

Most of these ingredients, such as Triclosan, are powerful tools in fighting germs and bacteria.

Not only is Dettol excellent as a bathing soap but it is also very effective as a shampoo. Regular shampooing with Dettol cleans the scalp and helps against mild dandruff.

Dettol is also claimed as helping combat perspiration odour, with regular usage.

Personally I do not use it as a shampoo as I suffer from quite severe dandruff and therefore regularly use Head & Shoulders.

One of the first things that I make sure I have packed in my bags, whenever I travel to Africa, is my Dettol Soap. Due to the regular stings and mosquito bites, Dettol greatly helps alleviate the scratching and inflammation associated with this and also speeds up the skins recovering process, due to the effective ingredients that it contains.

A bar of 125gms cost just £0.75 and although more expensive than other regular soaps, is well worth the money as a very few other brands can boast of it’s medicinal values. The soap is yellow in colour and has that distinctive Dettol smell.

So if you have sensitive skin and are prone to insect bites and/or stings or just want to have clean and well protected skin, then Dettol is the right choice for you.

    Excellent review. I don't think people who think they might be put off by the smell realise that it fades shortly after you wash with it and the thought of them smelling like Dettol all day is putting them off trying this excellent soap, which is a real shame.

    Very thorough review.

    I didn't realise that Dettol had their own soap. Sounds as if this would be good during the summer with all of those stinging insects around (midges just love me!). Might be worth a try. Thanks :) Sharl
