What is the best soap for men with oily skin?

No matter your skin type, there is an ideal soap for you. While many struggle with dry skin, oily skin can also be problematic, especially for men with fewer choices when buying natural soap.

Good old hormones, specifically testosterone, cause the differences between men's and women's skin. Men's skin is both thicker and oilier than women's.

So here are our recommendations for the best soap for oily skin.

Shaving soap - Tea Tree & Clay

Tea tree oil is effective for breakouts and inflammation; our shaving soap has a wonderfully fresh and herbal aroma. It gives a great slip on the razor and produces a beautiful lather to soften the bristles.


The clay helps to detoxify and cleanse the skin.

Tea Tree soothes skin itching and irritation and helps reduce acne scars and redness.

Shaving Soap - Sandalwood & May Chang

This recipe is a lovely formulation of Castor Oil and French Green Clay that absorbs excess sebum. Our shaving soap contains aromatic Sandalwood, May Chang & Bay Laurel essential oils and 100% plant-based ingredients, and Bay Laurel has excellent antibacterial and antiseptic properties.


With a classic Sandalwood fragrance and uplifting lemony May Chang, this shaving soap conditions and cleanses the skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

The rich foamy lather helps protect the skin from irritation and razor burn.

Shower & Bath Soap - Coffee & Lime

This soap is gaining in popularity with our male customers, and it's also an excellent exfoliating bar. Rich in Coconut & Olive Oil and with Zingy Lime essential oils, this fresh and woody scwoody-scentedented soap leaves your skin clean and buffed.


Coffee grounds are a great exfoliating agent to help remove dirt and dead cells from the skin without irritating your skin.

Shower & Bath Soap - Cinnamon & Sweet Orange

With spicy warm notes of Cinnamon combined with aromatic sweet orange and a hint of musk, this is the perfect soap for leaving your skin refreshed and soft. A decadent bar of soap that produces a rich, creamy lather, perfect for the face or body.


Spicy Cinnamon possesses antibacterial properties.

This soap creates a rich nourishing lather, perfect for all-over body use.

Rosemary, Lavender & Goats Milk Soap

This soap is an excellent choice for those suffering from oily skin, mainly due to the ingredients in goat's milk, such as lactic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), that help remove dead skin cells. The combination of Rosemary and Lavender essential oils gives this soap a fabulous herbal fragrance.


Lavender has antiseptic properties.

A soothing soap that's perfect for irritated and acne-prone skin

Pink Clay & Rose Geranium Soap

This soap is more woody than floral, despite the name. The added clay gives this soap a more aromatic fragrance, and pink clay is excellent for all skin types but especially good if your skin is prone to oiliness.


The clay in our soap is gently exfoliating and helps to draw out impurities.

When choosing a soap for oily skin, opting for a bar with wholly-natural ingredients that don't include additives is essential. Our featured soap bars might be the preferred choice for men, but equally, they are also perfect for ladies. All our soap is handcrafted and made in the UK.
