Popular brand names:
- Johnson & Johnson
Generic name: Soap-free cleansing gel.
Active ingredient: Emulsifiers.
Can you make it? No.
Soap is made of combining fats and caustic (strongly alkaline) substances, such as lard and lye. This creates an emulsifier that dissolves the oil on our skins and therefore remove dirt stuck to that oil, but can also be very harsh on the skin and the environment, as well as potentially containing animal products.
Soap-free soap is made of alternative emulsifiers, which can be PH-neutral and ethical, though always check the label!
- Beauty RX
