Bar soaps come in the shape of a solid bar. Soaps can dehydrate your skin. It's probably because bar soap comprises sodium lauryl sulfate, a harsh surfactant that can strip your body's natural oils. You may feel your skin tight after a wash. Not all bar cleansers are made something very similar, however. Indeed, there are various kinds of bar cleansers, some of which are less drying than others. But mostly, bar soaps tend to dehydrate your body by removing the natural oil from your skin’s surface.

The body wash is a liquid cleanser; it helps remove dirt and moisturises your skin compared to bar soaps. Body washes are better than bar soaps because soaps can be harsh to your skin. Since it can dry out your skin, body washes are milder and safer for your skin. They are nourishing and hydrating. Almost all body washes have oils that keep your skin smooth and lock your moisture for the entire day.
