Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.

Got this for the first time a few years back and loved it but since then the quality kept going down. Now its gotten very watery and not foamy at all and the nozzle sprays it everywhere. Also need to use a lot to get my hands clean. Won get this ever again, don waste your money on this one.
A thumbs up

The nozzle gets a little clumpy after a while, and the tea tree smell definitely comes through quite strong, but I do enjoy using it and so does my husband. I would buy it again.

I like this hand wash.
I like this hand wash. It leaves my hands feeling and smelling super clean. The amount of latheriness is perfect for me.
I purchased this product a few weeks back and its nice, its not the best aromatherapyherbal hand soap i have used.
I purchased this product a few weeks back and its nice, its not the best aromatherapyherbal hand soap i have used. But its ok. I wouldn't purchase it again as it doesn't lather in your hands nicely, but it smells great.
