What is the best hand soap for sensitive skin?

I use special sensitive baby wash for my daughter in the bath because she has really sensitive skin but hadn't even thought about hand soap. She recently potty trained and I've noticed her hands are getting very rough, dry patches and the skin is starting to peel off her fingers. Is there any particular hand wash that's really good for sensitive skin?

  • Poor kiddo. Is there some liquid baby hand soap? or perhaps mix some of her bath soap in water in a handsoap pump bottle so she can use that.

  • We use liquid Dial in our soap pumps. It's anti-bacterial and doesn't dry out your skin out like other anti-bacterial soaps. Our toddler washed her hands in it all the time and is fine.

  • Keep using baby soap. We have Baby O Baby in our bathroom (nothing toxic, like triclosan)

  • Any thing gentle. Anything special for baby's or children? I know how mine got very sensitive with all my months of Chemo. I wonder if there's any natural stuff out there that's Safe? I hope you find what works Best!
