Thanks for the welcomes and suggestions! Some good things to try. Awhile back I made some body soap similar to L'Occitane french milled soap, because I didn't want to pay L'Occitane prices. It was fairly easy and I might take the same route here. I am looking at possibly doing a soap made with jojoba and tea tree oil or argan oil. When I made soap I used Argan and didn't have any problems so I may go that route. Or, as mentioned above I may try saponofied coconut oil. Not allergic to anything according to the allergist I saw years back, but have very sensitive skin to bacteria and pores that clog easily according to the dermatologist. I have developed a regiment that works well over the years and I have gotten it under control for the most part. Cleanse, tone, scrub w/salycilic product, benzoil peroxide as needed, twice a day. Then every other week I give myself a 70% glycolic peel in order to unclog pores and fade old acne scars and hyper pigmentation. It's a PITA, but it is working. I just always get nervous adding new products. It took awhile to find the right combo of products. Anyway, thanks again! I will update and let you know how I fare. If I go the route of making my own, I will create a thread, in case there is some interest. I just ordered a Merkur 180 so now I am committed to the world of DE shaving Hope y'all don't mind if I pull up a chair and stay awhile!
