Organic Body Wash
Skin Salve’s new organic body wash is free from SLS, parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances and propylene glycol.
Most everyday shower products use a cheap foaming agent called SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) to create their bubbles. SLS does produce a great deal of foam, but research has proven that continuous exposure carries health risks.
It can be harsh and drying on the skin. People with sensitive skin and eczema often find it very irritating causing immediate, painful flare ups.
Our SLS free organic body wash eliminates your body’s absorption of SLS and other undesirable ingredients, including paraben preservatives and synthetic fragrances.
It is formulated using pure natural ingredients to nourish and care for sensitive skin while you shower, and works equally well on hair.
It includes pure essential oils which have therapeutic properties and are naturally moisturising:
Sunflower Oil – Sunflower oil is an emollient which retains moisture in the skin. It also provides a protective barrier that can help stop infection. Sunflower oil is high in essential vitamin E.
Coconut Oil – Studies on individuals with dry skin show that coconut oil can improve the moisture and lipid content of the skin. Coconut Oil acts as a moisturizer, antibiotic, anti-fungal, multivitamin, multi-nutrient and anti-oxidant.
Glycerin – Glycerin is what is called a humectant, meaning that it attracts water. Glycerin is an emollient, making skin not only moist, but soft and supple to the touch. When glycerin or glycerol is applied to the skin, it seals in moisture that might otherwise escape. In addition to keeping the moisture level of the skin high, the cosmetic effect of glycerin on skin is that the skin looks healthier. The improved appearance of skin is due in part to the fact that the skin is hydrated and does not have the characteristic scaly look of dry skin.
As with our entire product range, extensive research was conducted in the course of developing this new skin care product. No testing was conducted on animals.
