Cold fusion may still be a scientific pipe dream but you can have berry fusion in your shower today. (I love writing corny crap like that…)
Softsoap has launched a new body wash that claims to “Leave skin feeling soft with energizing citrus fragrance and real berry extracts.” Here are a couple of observations about the product:
- The foamy part of the formula is a standard SLES/betaine mixture which is good at providing low cost lather.
- The floating moisture beads are actually polyethylene and, unlike many products, these little scubbers don’t feel abrasive against skin which is nice.
- The fragrance, probably the key selling feature, is appropriately scrumptious and does a great job of capturing the essence of both citrus fruits and berries.
Trivia question: how do they keep those little moisture beads from sinking to the bottom of the bottle? They’re suspended with an ingredient called acrylates copymer. Ask for it by name!
