Here, soft soaps are colored (usually) and are liquid but thick and sold as alternatives to bar soap for washing your hands. There IS a brand name sold called "Soft Soap" (forgot the maker's name), also Dial makes a line of these, also Jergens. Wal Mart sells Dial (usually) and also their own generic brand of this type of soap. Cathy Craig President PBS Maritime zone 9b > What do you call soft soap/ Some Soaps are detergents and not soap.
