Product And Packaging
I have always thought of Ivory Original Bar Soap as a normal bar of soap. It has very little fragrance that you can detect, it is almost 100% pure and just smells clean and fresh.
Ivory Original Bar Soap comes in individual bars and also multi-bar packages. I last purchased the smaller bars weighing 3.1 oz. in a 3 bar package. This size cost only $1.49 at Walmart. The packaging is fairly simple with the individual wrappers being white with a blue logo on top with the words Ivory. The wrappers that hold the multi-packs are similar in design. This soap is also available in 4-12- and 24 bar multi-packages.
Ivory Original Bar Soap is advertised as "Pure, simple, naturally clean." In fact, Ivory Original Bar Soap is probably the purest bar soap on the market at 99.44% pure. It contains no dyes, lotions or heavy perfumes.
A tip for prolonging the life of your bar of soap is to let it completely dry out in between uses. You should also avoid storing it on a flat surface where water can accumulate and cause the soap to become soggy.
My Experience With Ivory Original Bar Soap
We have used Ivory Original Bar Soap for years at my house. It was my first choice in bar soaps for my children since is was so pure. The scent is really nice and fresh. After bathing with Ivory Original Bar Soap you feel and smell clean!
This soap lathers very well using either a wash cloth or puff. I have never had any reactions to this soap personally but my oldest daughter did break out and after discontinuing use of the Ivory Original Bar Soap, we found that was the culprit. We then switched over to Jergens which did not bother her skin. I found it rather odd that the purest soap would cause her to break out and especially after using it for several years but it did.
I have used this soap for years in my home before personally switching over to something a little more exciting with enticing scents. Ivory Original Bar Soap also does not moisturize your skin and this is a must for me. My skin is very dry! I still keep a couple of regular bars of soap around the house, you never know when you will need them!

This is a nice no-frills bar soap to use in your household. It is especially good for kids and usually sensitive skin. This wasn't the case for my daughter but there are always exceptions to most rules. I find this is a good performing soap and leaves your skin fresh and clean. I give Ivory Original Bar Soap 4.5 Stars.
