    I wonder if it will promote skin health and be different from your conventional good quality body washes if we compare end result from skin health perspective?.. There has to be a way to justify the extra spend for people who do not have skin problems as such…
    Of note: the body wash contains Phenoxyethanol which is considered a potential irritant, allergen and an endocrine disruptor.
    Nivea Shower cream has a safer composition. Mustela has the safest, but it is a bebe shower cream, probably not enough of cleaning power to clean the dirty adults.

    PS this study, however, considers phenoxyethanol safe in concentrations up to 1% https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/jdv.15944 so, probably don't panic just yet.

      And it has Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which some people avoid for various reasons. The lack of SLS seems to be a major selling point of many of these things.

      I'll just stick to using a bar of soap.

        Yep it's silly. I have seen "No gluten" on some of the body washes, I swear!

        • Worst I've seen is "free of aluminium" on one of those deodorant crystals. You know, the ones that are about 25% aluminium?

        This SLS stuff is so annoying! The SLS that people have problems with is Sodium Laurel Sulfate (its a strong and drying cleanser) - Sodium Laureth Sulfate is actually very mild!

        the recommended/posted Extra Gentle doesn't contain sulphate, but the Daily Nourish variety does

      Try it. Honestly, my skin has not been as clear, as grease free, and as smooth as it has with this. Funny what proper face wash and a good moisteriser can do.

      Phenoxyethanol is not an endocrine disruptor. There are no examples of endocrine disruptors found in commercial skincare and cosmetics. The good thing is, if you’re confused, we have regulations against this, so you actually don’t even have to check - if it’s sold in chemist warehouse, or a supermarket, then it does not contain anything that can interact or harm your hormones. You can pick up ANY product off the shelf and be confident that it is safe.

      • Don't be so sure.

        https://www.news-medical.net/health/What-is-Triclosan-and-Wh...

        Triclosan is a suspected endocrine disruptor. Recently banned by the FDA, still available at your local pharmacy and supermarket in many products including facewash, and toothpaste

        https://www.illawarramercury.com.au/story/2505430/health-fea...

        Edit: looks like is has been removed from colgate after the FDA banned it … in 2019.
        So 5 years of endocrine disruptors in your toothpaste and we have to wait for the company to improve the formula themselves.

        So much for faith in our regulators

        Bonus from the article

        Australian experts have defended the product, the only toothpaste on the Australian market that contains triclosan.

        They say the chemical has been proven to fight gingivitis, gum bleeding and inflammation.

        "Untreated gum diseases have a massive effect," said Laurie Walsh, a professor of dental science at the University of Queensland.

        "You have to balance the potential of harm against a known good."

        "The big issue in handwash has been around spreading it on a wide area and absorbing it," said Professor Walsh.

        "When you are brushing your teeth you are putting it in a very specific area for a very short amount of time."


        So we should be worried about absorption through the skin on your hands, but not the absorption in the buccal cavity - where absorption is greatest in the enire body- that goes directly into the bloodstream and bypasses the liver

        Our esteemed experts ladies and gentlemen. Thank you Laurie Walsh, professor of dental science at the University of Queensland. I hope you are receiving compensation from GSK, it's better to assume you are corrupt rather than a complete moron
