Dr. Squatch Soap Review

Personally, I’ve been using baby soap for a long time. Why? Because most soaps for men contain a lot of chemicals (I’m not saying the baby soaps don’t) and my skin becomes super dry and coarse.

Since I’m not a fan of body milk, oils, and hand creams, the last thing I need is a chemical-filled soap that is more like a dish detergent than a solution for my skin.

This is why I can’t wait to share my in-depth review of Dr. Squatch’s all-natural soap.

About Dr. Squatch

Dr. Squatch Fresh Falls Soap

Dr. Squatch was founded by Jack Haldrup in 2013. Since Jack was struggling with psoriasis, his skin couldn’t stand regular soaps found all around. That’s why he decided to create all-natural, handmade soap for men.

Everything started in his garage. After countless hours and batches spent perfecting the process, Dr. Squatch Soap was born. Besides making soap, Dr. Squatch makes shampoo, conditioner, beard oil, toothpaste, and a few other things.

Speaking of the manufacturing process, people behind Dr. Squatch like to joke that their soap is square because they don’t want to cut corners. This might be funny, but it’s true. While most soap companies are focused on cutting costs, Jack’s focus is on the traditional manufacturing process. Every single bar of Dr. Squatch soap goes through a traditional cold process to retain the glycerin and nutrients in each bar, therefore there’s no need for harsh preservatives.

Dr. Squatch Soap Bars

Dr. Squatch Soap Bundle

There are 15 Dr. Squatch Soap bars and each one of them is unique. The mutual thing for all Dr. Squatch products is that they are all natural without any artificial stuff. Also, they are made for men and estrogen-free.

Dr. Squatch quiz is an incredibly useful feature on their website. It helps you pick the soap or any other Dr. Squatch product that matches your needs.

Now, let’s analyze each one of the 15 soaps and see what makes them different.

Coconut Castaway

Coconut Castaway smells like toasted coconut and contains coconut water, desiccated coconut shreds, and coconut milk. Coconut water is an excellent antioxidant, while coconut milk rejuvenates your skin. Finally, coconut shreds gently exfoliate your skin’s dead cells.

Coconut castaway soap is great for all skin types. All you have to do is to lather and scrub down daily.

Bay Rum

Bay Rum smells like island tropics and spice and contains cedarwood essential oil, shea butter, and fir needle essential oil. Vitamins C and E in cedarwood calm irritated skin areas while shea butter nourishes your skin. Fir needle essential oil is used in aromatherapy and it helps relieve tension.
This soap is great for all skin types and all you have to do is to lather it up and scrub it down daily.

Summer Citrus

Summer Citrus smells like a bright citrus grove and contains lemon oil, pumice, and shea butter. Lemon oil gives a refreshing scent while pumice, which is a volcanic rock, removes dead skin cells. Shea butter softens and nourishes your skin.

This soap is great for all skin types and all you have to do is to lather it up and scrub it down daily.

Pine Tar

This heavy grit soap smells like an old-growth forest and contains oatmeal, sand, and active charcoal. I guess you can figure out why it is heavy grit soap. Oatmeal and sand act as exfoliants with only one goal – to knock out every single piece of unwanted cells or dirt from your skin while active charcoal acts as a detoxifier.

Cool Fresh Aloe

Cool Fresh Aloe smells like a fresh spring morning and contains aloe leaf extract, olive oil, and shea butter. Aloe calms irritated skin and softens it. Olive oil restores smoothness and acts as an excellent antioxidant while shea butter, as I mentioned a few times, nourishes your skin.

Alpine Sage

Alpine Sage is a newly added scent. The soap smells like a warm mountain breeze and it contains cypress essential oil, clary sage essential oil, and sea salt. While sea salt acts as an exfoliant, cypress helps with greasy head hair and clary sage reduces skin irritation and improves overall skin health.

Fresh Falls

Fresh Falls smells like a crisp forest waterfall and contains Alaskan glacier mineral clay, lichen moss, and indigo powder. Alaskan glacier mineral clay absorbs dirt, toxins, and excess oils leaving smooth skin. This type of clay is one of the purest clays used to improve the texture of the soaps as well. Lichen moss is a skin softener used in aromatherapy as well while indigo powder acts as a natural colorant.

Wood Barrel Bourbon

This attractive soap smells like barrel-aged bourbon. It contains Jimmy red cornmeal and sand as exfoliants and brewer’s yeast as a skin softener. Brewer’s yeast soothes your skin thanks to B vitamins.

Deep Sea Goats Milk

This soap smells smooth and fresh and contains oatmeal, shea butter, and kaolin clay. While oatmeal acts as an exfoliant, and shea butter nourishes your skin, kaolin clay act as a gentle cleanser.

Cold Brew Cleanse

Cold Brew Cleanse smells like coffee and brown sugar and contains, guess what – coffee! Coffee gives a scent to this soap while coffee grounds act as a natural exfoliator. There’s shea butter as well for nourished skin.

Gold Moss

Gold Moss smells like earthy oak and sea salt, olive oil, and shea butter. Those ingredients help remove dead skin cells and cleanse and soften your skin.

Birchwood Breeze

After using Birchwood Breeze you’ll smell like crisp birchwood forest. The soap contains birch bark and pumice that act as natural exfoliants, while niaouli oil adds a woody scent.

Spearmint Basil

Spearmint Basil smells like mint bliss and contains peppermint leaves as a natural exfoliant, spirulina powder, and shea butter. While shea butter nourishes your skin while spirulina improves overall skin health and acts as a colorant.

Eucalyptus Yogurt

Also called The Greek God of Bar Soaps, it smells like eucalyptus burst, and contains greek yogurt, oatmeal, and eucalyptus essential oil. As I mentioned, oatmeal acts as a natural exfoliant while greek yogurt smooths your skin. Last, eucalyptus essential oil promotes nasal clarity.

Grapefruit IPA

You’ll smell like citrus and hops after showering with this one. Beer and shea butter act as natural skin softeners while hops extract powder has a calming effect.

Here’s what Avri thinks of Pine Tar – Couldn’t wait to finally try this after seeing it advertised for some long. I was looking for any excuse to get sweat and dirty so I could jump in the shower and use it. Love the scent. I will have to buy it in bulk next time. Can’t wait to try the others.

Here’s another comment from Dontrell – cheap soap leaves streaks, but this is refreshing and oddly satisfying I would like to include that if they were bigger and charged a little more. I wouldn’t mind, it makes me feel good.

Speaking of negative comments, most consumers complain that the scent doesn’t last long. We have to acknowledge these comments, even though they are around 10% of the total number of reviews.

Is Dr. Squatch Worth It?

Honestly, I think there should be more brands like Dr. Squatch. Brands that don’t cut corners for profit. Brands that make all-natural products in a traditional way. Brands that care. Dr. Squatch does a great job when it comes to advertising as well.

The brand has hundreds of thousands of reviews online and most of them are posted by super-happy customers. Like any other popular brand, Dr. Squatch has unhappy customers as well. It’s impossible to please everyone. The good thing is that I haven’t stumbled upon a review that complains about customer service or refunds.

Speaking of the products, Dr. Squatch soap is made for everyone since there are 15 different types. If you’re not sure which one is the right one for you, just do a short Dr. Squatch quiz. Finally, the fact that Dr. Squatch makes soap in a traditional way builds trust, therefore, yes Dr. Squatch is definitely worth it.
