  • Affordable
  • Great smell
  • Completely organic
  • Multifunctional use

CONS:
  • The packaging does tend to leak

With no preservatives, thickeners, or detergents added, the Oleavine Theratree Therapeutic Tea Tree Oil Soap is one of the most natural body soaps you can find.

It is not only marketed as a body wash but for preserving and cleaning your feet as well. The antifungal composition ensures a clean look and an excellent smell, but it protects you from anybody odor as well.

Moisturizing omegas have also been included and these will ensure an enriched feeling for your skin. The omegas are perfect for dry skin and it also helps to fight off any itchy feelings that might be frustrating.

The minty smell is the best part and it ensures you are smelling great, just as nature is meant to smell and feel.

Fortunately, it can also be used as a shampoo and this addition is perfect for those in need of a multi-purpose washing product.

For all of these organic ingredients, one would often think you need to pay an expensive price.

However, the body wash is not all that expensive and you can easily find it at an affordable price. While we won’t recommend it for those who are constantly traveling, it is one of the best options to consider if you need something for the whole family.

PROS:
  • Fresh smell
  • Fights infections
  • Keeps odor away
  • Hydrates your skin

CONS:
  • Quite expensive compared to many other products, though the quality is excellent.
  • Personally, I didn’t like the watery texture.

One of the biggest problems will be the texture of the body wash. Unfortunately, it is a little watery and this means you will have some problems when it comes to dispensing it.

The body wash is not meant to stay in the cupboard for too long or this watery feeling might be enhanced, making it near impossible to use.

Unfortunately, this is also one of the more expensive brands and you will need to pay a steep price if you are to use this body wash.

We would still recommend it for all the ingredients and the revitalizing feeling that it offers. If you have problems with odor during the day, this will definitely be one of the options to consider.

PROS:
  • All-natural ingredients
  • Hydrates the skin
  • Easy to use
  • Reasonably priced

CONS:
  • Not the best for sticking odors

Using natural products have become more and more popular and most brands are now converting the body wash to contain all-natural ingredients.

The Art Naturals’ Tea Tree Body Wash is one of the top anti-germ options on the market today and this is due to the ingredients that will combine to soothe and cleanse the skin.

Defense Soap Body Wash Shower Gel

PROS:
  • Soothing and revitalizing
  • Unique texture
  • Reasonably priced
  • Revitalizes dead skin

CONS:
  • May be a little hard to wash off in the bathtub

The Defense Soap Body Wash is quite unique and while it also contains all of the natural ingredients to help soothe your skin and remove any potential problems that may arise, the product is made in the form of shower gel.

The gel is really easy to use and it also sticks to the body a little better to ensure you have a refreshing smell.

Once again, tea tree oil has been used as one of the ingredients and this will ensure a soothing effect on the body and the skin. Your skin will be feeling as good as new.

The smooth texture is one of the best parts and this means the soap will not be washed off as easily but stick to your skin for a better sensation.

The downside we experienced might not be the same for everyone and the only real problem seems to be the soap rinsing from the body when used in the bathtub.

While it works perfectly for those in the shower, you might need to scrub to get it off the body and this might counteract the rejuvenating effect and lead to dry or dead skin cells.

While the price might seem expensive, you will receive two products to last you longer. This means you will be saving in the long run and the body wash will have more time to take effect.

We would highly recommend this to anyone living the active lifestyle as it will ensure a clean and fresh appearance when you are around other people.

Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar

PROS:
  • Reduces acne
  • Really affordable
  • Long lasting smell
  • Offers longevity

CONS:
  • Not made for traveling

While most people prefer washing with gel or liquid soap, the Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar comes in a bar form and this has been proven to last longer as you won’t waste as much soap.

With a lighter formulation compared to most other soaps, this one will be perfect for those with sensitive skin to help alleviate any skin problems.

Since it does not have such a potent formulation, the soap can be used for washing your face as well. This will make it the ideal multi-purpose soap for cleaning.

The soap also does not block the pores and this should be perfect for those suffering from acne. We also found the smell to be long lasting, keeping you fresh all-day long.

Unfortunately, the bar is not made to be traveled with and it might be quite the mess when you are traveling with it.

However, if you manage to buy a decent soap holder, the soap should be fine. We would also advise you to keep the soap out of your eyes as it might lead to a painful and burning feeling on the eyes.

Since it is a bar form, it is a little more affordable than some of the other soaps on the market today.

We would highly recommend it for the quality and versatility it offers. If you have teenagers suffering from acne, this will be one of the best options that you can consider to ensure they get rid of this problem once and for all.

With a strong scent that sticks to the body, the soap tends to keep you free of any odor problems all over your body.

Most people might not even notice this, but this will make you wonder whether the product is completely natural. However, it does not do any damage to sensitive skin and this makes it the ideal soap for those with sensitive skin.

Another problem is the price. Yes, it will help to remove most of the fungal infections and problems that you are dealing with, but after a while, it will become rather expensive, especially if used by the entire family.

The peppermint might smell a little strange and you need to get used to it if you are using it for the first time.

However, the smell is long lasting and this will be the most important part for those working long hours.

In terms of the price, this product is actually really affordable. The brand is not yet as well known and this could be the reason for the cheaper price.

Nevertheless, we would still recommend it for the quality and the value. If you are a hardworking individual working long hours, this might be the ideal soap to keep you smelling fresh and clean.

Key Features to Consider When Looking for An Antifungal Body Wash

With so many different products on the market today, it can be really hard to find the right one for you.

Fortunately, we have comprised a decent buyer’s guide and this should help you when it comes to choosing the right product. We also used most of these guidelines in selecting the top 10 products on our list:

Brand:

One of the first things you should be looking for is the brand. Since body wash products are easy to make, there are many knock-off brands looking to sell fake products that will not do the trick.

With a little bit of research, you can easily find some details on the brand to ensure that it has been tested and all of the ingredients are safe.

We only look for products will all the ingredients to ensure that it has been used and tested. This also means that the ingredients are not harmful to your skin and will ensure that it actually can work.

Using high-quality ingredients will always yield much better results and also ensure that you don’t need to deal with side effects.

Smell:

The smell is fundamentally important and with a better-smelling body wash, you will be feeling cleaner and better for much longer.

When it comes to choosing a perfect body wash, we recommend finding the smell to also see if you can use this smell in conjunction with your cologne. If not, the two products might counteract each other.

Antifungal properties:

Fungus is becoming more and more of a problem and this can be due to many reasons.

If you are suffering from bad fungal infections, it will be great to have a product to help alleviate this problem. People with sensitive skin need to look for something to accommodate their skin as rash can easily appear and worsen the product.

Natural Ingredients:

As an avid environmentalist, we always try to look for products made from natural ingredients.

This will not only be beneficial to your skin and your body but is also helpful to keep environment protected. It will ensure you are smelling great and the environment is not damaged, allowing our children to see life as we know it.

Additional Features:

If the product can offer you some versatility, that will be much better as well. The additional versatility will ensure a lot of comforts and allow you to save some money. Some of these products can help to exfoliate the skin and they are recommended for facial purposes as well. If something is marketed as 2-in-1, you should put it to the test.

Relaxing is something we forget to do in the rush of the modern age and your body will sometimes just need to take some sort of break from all the rush. If you find something with relaxing ingredients, you should be able to use it for relaxation purposes. This will not only rejuvenate the outer part of your body but help you to feel fresh as well.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Washing and cleaning are some of the things we learn from an early age and this is something we don’t put much thought into.

However, there are a couple of questions that we came across that many people still have. With some research, we found some of the answers to help you understand more about washing with a decent body wash.

Are there ingredients to be wary of?

Unfortunately, some of the brands do take chances with derivative ingredients. If you are serious about a great product, there are a couple of ingredients you should try to avoid. Here are the most common ingredients that may cause more damage than help you:

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: While it does have some excellent cleaning properties, this is one of the ingredients you need to look out for. It is commonly found in shampoos and will be the main reason for irritability in your eyes.
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate: This is another harmful compound and it is generally perfect for disinfecting wounds. However, it contains substantial amounts of alcohol and this might also irritate the eyes and your scalp.
  • Castor Oil: While it can help with conditioning the skin, those with sensitive skin should avoid castor oil. It can severely irritate the skin and people only realize this when it is too late. This is one of the oils you should look out for.

Can antifungal body wash disinfect wounds?

Antifungal body wash must not be mistaken for a miracle worker, yes it can certainly help to keep the wounds clean but having a disinfectant on hand will ensure you don’t have any bacteria. Disinfectants are much more concentrated, delivering the ultimate killer blow to stubborn bacteria and reducing your chances of an infection.

Will it remove dandruff?

Removing dandruff is mostly attributed to a different type of shampoo and these body wash products can be used for washing your hair. However, we have found that they might dry out the hair or lead to dry scalp. When it comes to removing dandruff, it will be much better if you choose a shampoo that is designed specifically for removing dandruff.

Final Thoughts:

Choosing a good body wash is not always easy, but now you should have all the knowledge to get it done and improve your look and smell. These body wash products have been tested and they are all from reputable manufacturers. We would highly recommend them for the quality and the value they offer to most customers.
