I ordered this soap many times directly from the manufacture and never had any issues (it doesn't lather like some soaps but this is to be expected) However, when I ordered this same soap at a lower price from Swanson the bars literally fell apart before half of the bar was used!
I am not talking about just a few bars either. I ordered 48 bars at one time and every single bar had the same issue.
I have come to the conclusion that this soap being sold by Swansons is defective and of little value unless you like using small pieces of the bar to try and wash your body.
To me, it appears that this soap was molded together using a bunch of smaller pieces and when water touches it those pieces break apart and you are left with many tiny pieces of soap to wash with.
If you MUST try this bar, only order one and see if it falls apart when you use it.
I already contacted Swanson support about this issue but I have not ordered since to see if the problems were fixed or not.

This soap does not dry your skin out and lathers up nice. Only soap we like. Rainforest is a nice scent too!

I used to buy this soap directly from the company - but at increased price. Swanson price was lower, but packaging was falling apart and sticking to the soap when delivered. Not cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank Martinez Unscented soap
Just love it. the best soap ever..there is a corner of my bathtub where i used to put my liquid soap, shampoo and face clenser..well to make a long story short right on the spot where i put those products the paint peeled off and now there is a rust spot.and remember the paint on a bathtub is also metal..this tells me of the chemicals on these products chemicals that were probably making me sick., but no more i use the essentials soap even to wash my hair and it feels great. I will recommend this product to everyone. You will feel your body calmed after showering with this soap since all those fragrances and chemicals are not penetrating your skin. try it for yourself and you will see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by el64 We love this soap!
We've been using this exclusively for several years now. Doesn't dry out your skin, good for allergies, love the variety of scents, good for well water. We buy a big box about every year and a half with free shipping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amani S excellent soap!
I purchased this soap at a loo call store just to try it out and now that I've used it for a few weeks I truly see a difference in my skin. Not to mention that this soap does not use any animal biproducts and is cruelty free! This is very important to me as an animal rights activist. I will DEFINITELY continue to use this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lilian I've been buying this product for years at Publix but they have stopped carrying it. It's the only soap that keeps my skin moist. I have extremely dry skin and have had since birth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueandRuby Great for itchy dogs too!
I have dog with very itchy skin from allergies. The allergies also make her susceptible to yeast infestations on her skin, which she gets quite often. When she gets it, I sometimes end up with it myself. Tea Tree is known to have anti-fungal properties so I tried this soap on myself and it worked very well to get rid of the itchiness. I tried it on my dog too and saw significant improvement. She went nearly a week with very little itchiness! This soap works better (and I believe is safer for her) than any other product I've tried on her, including products made specifically for treating itchy skin on dogs. I will be keeping this on hand from now on. Please never stop making it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tee14 A Natural Soap/Gentle on Skin/Good Price
I've been looking for a soap with all natural ingredients that nurtures the skin. This is it. The other reviewer who was disappointed that it doesn't profusely lather must not know the majority of soap products that lather up real easily only achieve that effect from harsh chemicals that are added just for that purpose. You need to wet your hands and the soap and either clean using the soap directly on your skin or rub it over your hands to clean. If you feel the slippery film of the soap on your skin when you scrub, you're getting clean. It washes off quick and thoroughly with no film left behind. Most people are used to abundant lather with other soaps and it only makes them think they're getting the cleanest with all the lather. It's all in the mind though. I like that I have a personal hygiene product with no worries that there are ingredients that can pose long term health risks. The fresh scents are refreshing and not overpowering. Only thing I ask is for the makers of natural essentials to sell their products at more major retailers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisN Love this soap!
I dont know what that first person was talking about with the bad review, I think this soap is great! Now that I have been using it for some time, when I use other soap I can now smell the chemicals, yuk! this soap works great, smells good, makes me feel clean after and doesnt leave my skin extra dry, I keep trying the other scents but I like the Aloe the best, keep up the good work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spring $1 each at my local stores
I like this soap for washing my body and face in the shower. I like the fragrance free and aloe. Looking forward to trying to tea tree, that sounds really good. The soap smells nice, feels nice and gentle, does not dry out my skin, and is reasonably priced. I like the that the ingredients list is nice and short. Make sure you keep them nice and dry as any soap with this much glycerin is going to be quite soft. Not really best suited for hand washing, I like to use a coconut soap for that. Cant use coconut soap in the shower though or else my skin will literally peel off!

Bought the Honeysuckle soap and it left me feeling quite dirty. I work out at the gym and expect to smell clean after I wash my body with soap. Your soap did not even lather up and it left my skin very dry.
