Information on Medicated Soaps


When we say medicated soaps, we refer to the specialty soaps that have such ingredients which can cure one or the other problems such as acne and other skin problems like black heads, clogged pores, pimples, body itching, bacterial or fungal infections etc. We can buy any or every medicated soap available in the market and there are many. However, to get the true benefits of these soaps, we must know the ingredients of medicated soaps so that we pick just the right one for our particular problem.
Medicated Soaps
Types of Medicated Soaps
There are many types of medicated soaps that can be helpful to us such as anti-bacterial soap that generally helps to relieve various skin problems. Then there are anti fungal soaps having therapeutic effects that reduce the discomfort and relieve the symptoms caused by various fungal infections. One of the very popular types of medicated soaps include the anti acne soap that help in getting rid from acne and pimples. The anti cellulite soap are the medicated soaps for reducing cellulites that are the dimpled skin in such areas of body as hips, thighs and buttocks as a result of deposition of fat. The anti mosquito soap is used to dispel mosquitoes, mostly in mosquitoe-infested areas. There are certain medicated soaps that not only have therapeutic effects but are beauty treatments too such as anti aging soap that are useful for both cleansing the outer body as well as to slow down the signs of aging. There are many other types of medicated soaps like sensitive skin soap which is gentle to the skin and maintains it properly. Anti itch soap is for relieving skin problem of itching. Anti chlorine soap is used while swimming to keep the harmful effects of chlorine at bay.
Ingredients of Medicated Soaps
Although the basic ingredients of soaps are similar, there are certain added ingredients of medicated soaps through which the all the problems are tried to be solved.

Antibacterial soap- The medicated antibacterial soaps contain antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan which is alcohol. Apart from triclosan, triclocarban/trichlorocarbamide and PCMX/chloroxylenol, tetrasodium EDTA are generally used for antibacterial effect in these soaps. However, it must be remembered that since there are various types of bacteria, effectiveness against any given type of bacterium does not ensure that it is effective against other unrelated types too. The ingredients of antibacterial soaps are generally only contained at preservative level unless the product is marked antibacterial, antiseptic, or germicidal.

Antifungal soap- Antifungal soaps are made by adding organic medicinal plant extracts, vitamin E, essential oils, natural glycerin, sulphur and zinc oxide, tea tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia) etc. into the soap.

Medicated soaps for skin problems- Medicated soaps for different skin problems have different ingredients. For example, exfoliating soaps for unclogging skin pores sometimes have oatmeal, pine and eucalyptus. Oatmeal opens the pores and deep cleans and removes excess dirt and oil. Pine and eucalyptus cleanse, moisturize and fragrance the skin. Anti cellulite soaps have many natural ingredients, main being seaweeds that can be used alone or in combination with other agents like ivy extract, juniper, aminophylline, coffee bean extract, fennel seed extract, aloe, hyaluronic acid, ginko biloba, horse chestnut, bentonite etc. Many anti acne soaps or oily skin soap have natural ingredients like neem leaves (azadirachta indica) for extra care and protection for oily skin that mostly suffer from acne and pimples.

The best medicated soaps are those that have the exact ingredients that target at the problem for which they are made or bought.
