Whether or not a body wash is "better" than soap may depend on the particular body wash and the type of skin you're washing. If your skin is dry, your dermatologist may recommend using a gentle cleanser or moisturizing body wash rather than regular soap, and may suggest applying an emollient or lotion right after a bath or shower to "lock in" moisture. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
