Does anyone use Dove sensitive skin unscented soap (or similar) in their scent control regime. It would be nice to know you could use this as apposed to the normal bar soap-from an over priced hunting products name brand we use that seems to be getting a little bit hard to find. I'm not looking to debate weather scent control works but rather if anyone has any technical info like maybe someone knows what all those ingredience are listed on the packaging?

I really hope someone on here can answer your question. I’d love know this as well. ‘Hunting’ soap is ridiculous!

Baking soda. 2 bucks for 4lbs at walmart. Even cheaper at costco...around 6 bucks for a 13.5lb bag. Replaces my bath soap, laundry detergent, talc and deodorant. As talc it will hold and neutralize odors when you sweat.

No scientist here by any means, so I can't tell you the particulars. But I have been using that Dove sensitive skin soap for washing my body and hair, for a long time.

I use the Dove uncented bar soap. I buy it in bulk at Costco and use it all year long. It's better than the hunter soaps because it doesn't leave your skin dry.

I buy a three-bar pack of unscented soap at the local Dollar General store just before hunting season and it lasts me all season. Costs less than $3 and is good as anything else I have used. I would be interested in hearing if the Dove sensitive skin version works out and what the cost is in comparison to what I have been using the past couple years.

Unscented soap...then I sometimes use the unscented baby wipes with added Hydrogen peroxide [/14 cup in a pack] in some strategic areas. kills the bacteria that causes odor.

Dove men’s+ care has been good for me. I smell nice and the moisturizer makes my skin feel good. The wind handles the “scent free” part.

I use Ivory soap and for killing the bacteria that causes odor I use a mixture of half water and half White Vinegar in a spray bottle on all my upper body, usually just spray it in my hand and rub it on (neck down to waist). The Vinegar smell will only last a few minutes.

I do use the dove also. It works. The real difference in ‘hunters soap’ is the fact that it’s active ingredient is an Antibacterial which isn’t necessarily a good thing, considering that it will also kill the good bacteria on your skin too leaving a bit more susceptible to possible sicknesses.

dr bronners, I use their unscented baby soap. awesome stuff, leaves zero residue.

I use it all year, besides great scent free soap, it's just good soap.

search "dr bronners castile soap" and you will have lots of buying options, and can read up on it. I buy it by big bottles, I go through about 3 per year, and its about 12 bucks a bottle. if I only used it for hunting, one bottle would get ,me by.
