Quick Tip:
Your Favorite Scent...Now in a Hand Soap!

Ever wish your favorite scent came in a hand wash? Guess what...it might- it's just not called that on the label!

If your scent of choice comes in a body wash or shower gel option, buy a pretty refillable pump and fill that baby up- after all, hands are a part of the body, aren't they? All kidding aside, the surfactants in body washes are the same as those typically used in hand soaps, so they really do clean your hands just as well as your body.As an added bonus, body wash often has added moisturizing ingredients, so your hands are less likely to dry out with your new cleansing option.

Used to antibacterial soap and worried about germs? Consider this: studies have consistently found that antibacterial soaps are no more effective than regular formulations, and could even be harmful. The plain fact is that washing with regular soap for just 20 seconds kills harmful bacteria. Since Triclosan, the antibacterial agent used in most popular anti-bac soaps, takes around 30 seconds to off the little buggers, you can see, totally not necessary. So grab some shower gel, smell good and be clean!
