Get Fresh! Natural Soap is a high quality cold pressed 100% vegan natural soap with oatmeal and a twist of orange and spearmint essential oils. This SLS free soap lathers naturally leaving the skin feeling moisturized, not dry and tight. Cleansing for both face and body. Oatmeal creates an exfoliating texture and is excellent for reducing itchy skin and redness.
The Get Fresh! is one of our favs because the smell is irresistable in the morning shower and the oatmeal feels so good on the body! Plus, it's SLS free...Yay!
What is SLS you might ask? Sodium lauryl sulfate is a surfactant, detergent, and emulsifier used in thousands of cosmetic products, as well as in industrial cleaners. It is present in nearly all shampoos, scalp treatments, hair color and bleaching agents, toothpastes, body washes and cleansers, make-up foundations, liquid hand soaps, laundry detergents, and bath oils/bath salts. Although SLS originates from coconuts, the chemical is anything but natural. The real problem with SLES/SLS is that the manufacturing process (ethoxylation) results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic by-product.
SLS has been linked to irritation of the skin and eyes, organ toxicity developmental/reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes and possible mutations and cancer.
