Skin Type and Condition Recommendations
One of the main reasons I make products is because I'm just as frustrated as you are when it comes to searching for skin products that won't irritate you AND will leave you feeling refreshed and smelling good. I've done extensive research on skin types, conditions, and product ingredients to best facilitate healthy, radiant, and comfortable skin. If you're new to my products, or have used them for a long time, here's just a few of the things I've found.
Keep in mind, these are only recommendations, and most if not all of my soaps will cover every category mentioned. Many of my customers have used scented or other specialty soaps and still have come back with positive results. I value high quality in both ingredients and my soap/lotion making processes and any of my products are intended to have a beneficial effect regardless of your condition!
Not all skin types are the same and allergic reactions or irritations may occur regardless of Ember Cove soaps being hypo-allergenic. If you experience any irritation or discomfort using my products, please discontinue use immediately and consult your dermatologist to find out what is going on. Ingredient lists can be found under every product page to help avoid use of a product that may cause an allergic reaction. Ember Cove products are made with a mixture of all natural and gentle ingredients, but your unique skin type may not react the same way as the next person while using them.

In my opinion, there's little worse than dry, tight, cracked, and sometimes painful skin that has you looking and feeling less than perfect. Switching from dry Arizona climates, humid Texas climates, cold Washington climates, and more, I know the feeling all too well. I wasn't the only one though, many of my customers are seeking the same relief and found it here. The special formula with goat milk and essential oils helps moisturize the skin quickly without being uncomfortably greasy, while the all natural unprocessed raw honey heals even the most cracked skin. Having customers worldwide review my products positively, I'm confident you'll be comfortable in your skin with Ember Cove!
For dry skin I recommend: Unscented lotions, unscented soap, peppermint soap, shaving oils, and lip balms.
With oily skin, your oil glands are overworking themselves leaving you to deal with all the excess. They're producing excess to offset dry skin that is often the result of using products with harsh chemicals that people commonly use today. I've tested my products over and over and finally found a formula for both lotion and soap that does not make your oily skin feel even more greasy. My soaps gently yet effectively wash and my lotions moisturize while leaving a powdery feel. Within just a few applications your skin should feel not only less oily, but more healthy and moisturized as well!
For Oily Skin, I recommend: Breakfast Soap, Lemon Soap, Oatmeal Soap, any Lotion, Lip Balms, and Shaving Oil.
Who doesn't have sensitive skin these days? And with all the harsh chemicals and undesirable fillers found in many skin care products, most of you have been irritated or had uncomfortable skin at one time or another. If you are left feeling anything less than refreshed and moisturized after using Ember Cove products, then I haven't done my job. All of my products are made with sensitive skin in mind and any product on this site would suit you well. If you'd like to stay on the safe side, then try without scents, but I haven't had any complaints or reports of reactions from scents yet. Remember, satisfaction is guaranteed!
For Sensitive Skin, I recommend: Unscented soap, peppermint soap, gingersnap soap, unscented lotion, unscented shaving oil, any lip balm.
Even if you're already radiant, Ember Cove will make sure you stay that way. My customers who didn't complain of any underlying skin problems were pleasantly pleased by the way my products worked and felt. So give it a go, what do you have to lose anyway aside from risking even healthier skin?
For Normal Skin, we recommend: Everything!
Combination skin is a mix of both dry and oily skin. Some areas may be oily, while others may be dry. For instance, the forehead and nose will have more traces of oil while your cheeks will be dry. Care for this skin usually requires specifics for each area, but with my products you should have a little more leeway. Since all of my ingredients are carefully chosen to work with both types, you can wash and moisturize like normal. The more hydrated your skin becomes, the more your symptoms of both oily and dry skin should go away.
For Combination Skin, we recommend: Breakfast soap, peppermint soap, lotions, shaving oil, and lip balms.
Instead of using harsh acidic chemicals, I felt that a gentler more natural approach is not only effective, but it'll ensure your skin isn't being dried out and damaged in the process.
For Acne, I recommend:
Eczema, Psoriasis, and Rosacea
Since I specialize in high quality ingredients, I do my best to make sure my products are designed to produce a much needed relief after just a few washes. Formulated to be delicate enough to use on infants, while nourishing and moisturizing your skin, Ember Cove soaps are designed for sensitive skin!
For irritating skin conditions, we recommend: (Unscented will have minimal chance for irritation)
