Gently cleansing and caring for sensitive skin™️

“Growing up with sensitive skin was frustrating. I would have adverse reactions to everything: soap, perfume, laundry detergent…you name it. The only products that were offered for me were boring, unscented, and “one-size fits all”. 

I continued life wishing there was a brand on the market that understood the struggle I faced with sensitive skin and still offered a joyful aromatic experience during bathing. 

So, with my skin story and a knack for plants, I created it.

Gently Soap is challenging the notion that having sensitive skin means only using boring unscented bath products. Say goodbye to boring bar soap and say hello to Gently: herbal infused bar soap made for sensitive skin.”

- Kristen Dunning, Founder of Gently Soap

  • Synthetic Fragrance Free

    Fragrances are complex and can contain multiple synthetic and/or chemical ingredients. Because of the sensitivity of our skin, any one with sensitive skin or common skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, are better off using products that avoid fragrance altogether.

    But this does not mean bathing should be boring!  

  • Essential Oil Free

    Many times, people with sensitive skin also have skin that is allergenic. The concentration of essential oils increases the chances of your skin being irritated or having an adverse reaction. Because of this our founder can never use a skin care product that has essential oils in its ingredient line-up, we figure that she is not alone. 

  • A Unique Herbal Infusion in Every Bar

    We never want our customers to feel limited in their bathtime options. Through our founder's background in horticulture and plant science, we were able to infuse our bar soaps with herbs that allow each Gently bar to have its own subtle botanical scent.

What Customers Are Saying

I've had a patch of psoriasis behind my ear...

I've had a patch of psoriasis behind my ear that popped up a couple of years ago...I have used different cleansers and lotions and tried to keep it moisturized, but it has always stayed flaky and itchy. At one point it would just bleed any time I touched my ear. Well, I used this soap ONE time and immediately felt relief... I took a shower tonight and used my bar and it went from extremely irritated to completely gone! I am so impressed. Would HIGHLY recommend.

I found out about this brand after...

I found out about this brand after a friend got into my car and smelled so fresh and clean. I actually interrupted her sentence because I had to know what she was wearing. I was surprised that it was simply soap! I have shower shelves full of body washes, bar soaps, etc. to match my mood for the day. I got a little tickled this morning when I noticed I keep reaching past the expensive stuff for this bar every day. It is light, smells fresh, lathers well and doesn’t leave any kind of residue. I especially love that I can pronounce every single ingredient and I trust that I’m doing something good for my skin when I use it. The packaging is cute and reusable too! I highly recommend!

I've had eczema my whole life...

I've had eczema my whole life, and have kind of outgrown it, but my sensitive skin has stayed. This bar is super gentle and cleansing and doesn't bother my skin! It lathers really nicely and even though it's fragrance-free it doesn't smell all chemically like most fragrance-free soaps (iykyk the smell) because it's all made from plants!!

- Caitlin

I absolutely love this soap!

I absolutely love this soap! It smells SO good, and the scent is very relaxing and calming. It always makes me feel nice and clean without drying out my skin. Overall a great body soap and I would recommend it to anyone.

- Zoe

Love the subtle scent!

I have used all of the soaps, the coffee scrub, and the body butter, and I love them all! I have never liked skincare products with strong, abrasive scents, so Gently is simply perfect. I feel that I’m being good to my body. The natural colors, the medicinal herbs, the real, plant-based ingredients— this is what skincare should be.
