We simply call it savon liquide.

    And most of the time, we'd rather talk about "soap", simply. – avazula Apr 17 '18 at 19:50

    @avazula I guess you mean we might just say savon, dropping liguide. – jlliagre Apr 17 '18 at 21:05
  • Yes, that's what I meant. it's for the familiar simplification :) – avazula Apr 17 '18 at 21:24
  • So are you guys saying it's either savon liquide or savon? And that savon is more commonly used? – CubbyKushi Apr 22 '18 at 15:13

    Yes, there is no common and specific name for soap intended to be used to wash hands but should you really need to specify it: Savon [liquide] pour les mains. – jlliagre Apr 22 '18 at 15:47
