Before we moved into our house, I did a vast amount of shopping, stocking up from October last year on toilettries etc. I did the stock piling to ensure that when we not run out of essentials while in a state of unpacked chaos.
This means that I have unfortunately a stock pile of very unfriendly chemicals in my linen cupboard, which slowly we are using and replacing with homemade, natural alternatives. A few nights ago, my hubby, Mark asked for a new soap, which I fetched from the bottom of the linen cupboard.
Well known SA soap brand with germ fighting things and classed as “gental” is what I gave him before reading the lable. I had never heard of the first ingrediant, let alone many of the rest. Here is the list of ingrediants.
A few we should all have heard about at some stage, but many were a bit confusing. Those that have already been word of the days will not be duplicated, the others, I’ll be researching over the next few days:
- Sodium tallowate
- Sodium plamate
- Solium palm kernelate
- Tetrasodium EDTA
- Etidronic acid
- Titanium dioxide
- Disodium distyrylbiphenyl disulfonate
- Hexyl cinnamal
- Benzyl salicylate
- Amyl cinnamal
- CI 74160
What a mouth full! The 100g bar needs more printing for the ingrediants list then for the anufacturers contact details, weight, bar code and logo. The one good thing I did find on the packaging was a small logo with detailing a charity that the manufacter supports.
