Are there any natural alternatives to use for acne soap?

No: If the "natural"remedies worked there'd be no acne. In fact, the acne soap that you buy doesn't work well.

It usually peaks at 4-6 weeks and then resolves, as those hormone levels diminish in your baby. Regular acne treatments will not make it go away any faster and may be irritating to your baby's skin and make it worse. If it continues past 3 months, talk to his doctor. ...Read more
