Let’s see how they compare!
The Soap Guy vs Dr. Squatch: Which Is Better?
The Soap Guy: 5 oz bars wrapped in clear plastic, that allows you to get a detailed look. These bars would benefit from more visually appealing packaging.
Dr. Squatch: 5 oz bars with beautifully designed labels featuring their logo
Verdict: Dr. Squatch.
They both give you the same amount of soap per bar, but The Soap Guy could work on their packaging.
The Soap Guy: Natural and Organic Ingredients; varies based on the bar.
Coconut oil is the main ingredient in most of the bars, and they offer a large variety of scents.
Dr. Squatch: Natural Ingredients; varies based on the bar.
Saponified Oils(olive, coconut), shea butter, natural exfoliants(activated charcoal)
Verdict: Dr. Squatch
Both companies use natural and organic ingredients that are good for the skin. But I think that the use of shea butter allows the Dr. Squatch soap to offer better benefits.
The Soap Guy: $3 Average (12 for $36)
Dr. Squatch: $8 Average (5 bars for $40)
Verdict: The Soap Guy
The Soap Guy bars are over 50% cheaper than the Dr.Squatch bars, so if you’re looking to save money go with The Soap Guy
Consumer Reviews: What Others Are Saying
Unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of complaints about Dr. Squatch online.
I was recommending them in a forum earlier today and someone came up to attack me on why I would promote this brand that isn’t ethical.
This isn’t a single occurrence. Dozens of other reviews on forums like Reddit come up surrounding Dr. Squatch pop up with most complaining the brand doesn’t have good customer service.
If given the chance, I’d always choose The Soap Guy above Dr. Squatch. The only downside is that Dr. Squatch seems to have nice scents that are not available on The Soap Guy’s website.
Moreover, the scents you’ll find there are not quite as good. This is the only reason many have remained with Dr. S.
Verdict: The Soap Guy
The Soap Guy seems to have more positive reviews than Dr. Squatch. If you check the BBB rating for Dr. Squatch, you’ll see that it’s F, which is the lowest rating there for a bad company.
The Soap Guy: Pretty Effective.
It will leave your skin feeling soft with a light aroma, and lots of lather.
Dr. Squatch: Extremely effective! This soap leaves you feeling and smelling clean and can also have a moisturizing effect making the skin look and feel better.
Verdict: Dr. Squatch
Dr. Squatch has more of an effect on the skin due to its ingredients
Dr. Squatch is of higher quality and provides more benefits to the skin.
However, they are more expensive than The Soap Guy which offers similar quality at a lower price but arent as visually appealing and provides less information about their ingredients.
Frequently Asked Questions on Dr. Squatch & The Soap Guy
Does Dr. Squatch make their own soap?
There are hundreds of questions on Dr. Squatch. One of the most popular, and even funny, is whether Dr. Squatch actually makes their own products or obtains them from The Soap Guy.
There are quite a few theories regarding this. One, a strong one, is that Dr. Squatch has never manufactured their soaps. All their soaps are supplied by The Soap Guy.
The Soap Guy stated on Twitter:
Pine Tar has become one of our best selling soaps! Extra exfoliating power and its unique scent set it apart from the rest. Order now at https://thesoapguy.com
And you can actually order this scent from the website. If you’re familiar with Dr. Squatch, you’ll know that Pine Tar and Bay Rum are two of their top-selling scents.
How come The Soap Guy (a brand that actually manufactures their soaps, with a physical factory) is selling the same?
Now, wouldn’t it be prudent to ask Dr. Squatch directly? Well, some customers have done that.
And here is what the brand has to say:
Where and how is it made? Our soaps are made in the beautiful US of A. We want to keep them within our borders to ensure quality and a fair work environment. To learn more about how our soap is made, feel free to visit our About Page which explains it nicely
And then when you check the About Page, it’s the same information.
Basically, omitting the factory address, the physical location where the soaps are made, and anything that can help you verify they actually make their own soap.
All of these point to the fact that Dr. Squatch may not be making their soaps, but rather getting their supplies from The Soap Guy.
