When I was young, liquid hand soap was more popular in our home than bar soaps and whenever I Liquid Hand asked mum why she prefers liquid hand soap, the answer was they are not very convenient. However, I believe that there are plenty of reasons why most people prefer liquid hand soaps.

To determine whether a product is good for the skin or not, the chemical composition of the product is the first factor to consider. You may be using liquid hand soap but have you ever tried to find out what ingredients are used to make the soap and whether the soap is good for your skin? I am pretty sure the answer is “No”.
Most people do not check the ingredients used to make a particular product and risk damaging the skin. Most bar soaps uses harsh cleansing agents that have a high ph value and can cause skin irritation. However, liquid hand soaps are gentle on the skin than most bar soaps.

They can therefore help to spread infections especially in cases where they are used with more than one person or when they are not allowed to dry properly.
