I use Faith in Nature bodywash, which I get either from my local health food shop, or online via Goodness Direct - Online Health and Special Diet Food Store. Hope that helps!
So harsh soaps irritated my skin, but I need to use something not to smell. So I've been using Burt's Bees Body Wash for about a year now, which works fine but its not perfect. Its relatively expensive for one.
Those of you who are in a similar situation skin wise, have any alternatives that worked well for you?
Seventh Sojourn soaps. I originally found them at a Renaissance faire, but since then have been ordering online. I LOVE their soaps, especially their tea tree oil and their Midnight Seduction soaps.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

I use Dr. Bronner's. I especially like the peppermint, but the lavender is nice, too.
I don't know that I have sensitive skin so much but I do break out in itchy hives all the time from leaky gut/food allergies.. who knows... but since going primal I've notice I'm sweating out some junk that never has happened before. My skin feels like I've been drenched in oil then rolled in dust and I need to shower a couple times a day.
The body wash I was using just seemed to make things worse so I picked up a jug of that Dr. Bonners peppermint soap and it's great. At first I wasn't sure if I should even be using it for bathing because it says it's a multi-purpose soap and I assumed that meant you're supposed to use it for washing dishes, cleaning the house, etc. But I love it. It's very cooling, removes all the guck from my bod, and I feel like a stick of peppermint after I get out of the shower.

If you have sensitive skin, why not try going soapless for awhile? Plenty of people on these boards and elsewhere who are paleo/primal have had great success with it.
2 years soapless. It's great.
