Oils and other chemicals on your skin normally protect it from infection. Soaps and shampoos contain a base called lye. Bases dissolve oils and greases on the skin, which is why they clean well. However, they also remove the good oils that your skin needs. Dry skin can itch or hurt. It can also crack and increase the risk of germs entering the body.
