5 Beer Soap Benefits, How to Use It, and the Best Beer Soap

Oakwell Cosmetics beer soap

Beer isn’t only for drinking. You can also use it for your skin. In this article, we’ll discuss beer soap benefits, how to use it, and our favorite beer-infused soap bars.

Whether you want to upgrade your skincare routine, explore new self-care ideas, or learn about beer products, we've got you covered. Below, we'll explore everything you need to know about body soap made with beer.

What is beer soap?

Beer soap is a cleansing soap made with beer ingredients, hops and barley, which have nutrients that are said to be good for the skin. It also usually has additional ingredients useful for skin care, including moisturizing and protective oils.

Is beer soap good for your skin?

Using a beer soap free of harmful ingredients can be good for your skin. Soaps with beer and other beneficial ingredients can help cleanse, hydrate, and protect your skin. It may also reduce inflammation, treat acne, and offer anti-aging effects.



Beer Soap Benefits

While beer-infused soap alone likely won’t drastically improve your skin, its ingredients can support healthy skin. The soap is usually made with hops and barley, which are said to help improve your skin's appearance, texture, and overall health. 

Hops are the flowers of the Humulus lupulus plant and have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that nourish the skin. Barley is a grain with nutrients like zinc and vitamins that support healthy skin. 

Beer is also 90% water and has small amounts of various ingredients that add to the benefits of beer, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.

Below, we’ll look at various beer soap benefits.

Enhances Your Skin’s Appearance

Cleaning your skin with any harsh chemical-free soap can enhance its appearance, and beer ingredients can further promote these effects. Removing excess dirt and oil prevents bacteria that can cause skin irritation, such as redness, acne, or inflammation. It also helps promote your natural glow and reduce signs of aging.

Improves Your Skin’s Texture

As beer ingredients hydrate your skin and retain moisture to prevent dry skin, your skin’s not only healthier, but it feels better. Beer soaps with natural exfoliants like oats also exfoliate to remove dead skin and minimize wrinkles for softer skin. For example, Oakwell Cosmetics Brown Ale & Oats Beer Soap is made with beer ingredients and topped with oats for exfoliation.

Alleviates Skin Conditions

One of our favorite benefits of beer soap is that it can help soothe skin conditions, including acne, sunburn, dermatitis, and rashes. Natural oils, hops, and barley have nutrients that moisturize and offer other therapeutic effects. That said, if you have a lingering skin condition or irritability, it’s best to consult a dermatologist for suitable treatment.

Protects Your Skin

Using soap with oils and other natural ingredients not only nourishes your skin but protects it to keep it healthy. We love using Oakwell Cosmetics Charcoal & Blonde Ale Beer Soap because it’s made with olive, coconut, and castor oils, which have healthy protective vitamins and antioxidants. It also has green tea leaves, which contains Vitamin E to repair and protect skin.

Offers Relaxation

Not only is a warm bath or shower ideal for relaxation but using soap with hops can take this up a notch. Research shows that hops, one of beer’s main ingredients, have sedative effects. This is why many people drink beer to relax, and you can also use it on your skin for similar effects.

How to Use Beer Soap

Follow these steps to use your beer soap as you would any other soap bar:

1. Wet your soap under running water

2. Massage the soap bar to create a lather

3. Cleanse your face and body with the soap (or rub it into a loofah to massage your skin with)

4. Thoroughly rinse your body to remove the soap

    We recommend using your soap daily to experience beer soap benefits.
