Safeguard was created to be a germ protection soap. And rightfully so.
We use the Safeguard Fresh Green variant most of the time. If ever we shift to another soap because the Fresh Green is not available, we still use Safeguard. But there are times when we would try other more fragrant brands, my husband would complain that by afternoon, he already smells awful. His body odor reeks of sweat and body oils that have turned rancid because of the presence of germs and bacteria on his skin.
It was then that I realized that the germ protection factor of Safeguard is really effective.
We use the Fresh Green variant primarily because of its scent. It is not really that fragrant like perfume, but after using it, you smell freshly showered. Additionally, against another variant, I noticed that it is harder and lasts longer when used in the same conditions. The white variant, I think, is more easily dissolved in water. So while soaping and the hands are wet, so much soap is softened on my hand. Unlike the green variant.
Safeguar Fresh Green costs a little more than 50 cents per 130 g bar but if we get the 3-bar pack, we get like 20 cents discount. So it is a good deal. The three bars last us more than a month.
