Squeaky Clean Bath & Shower Gel - Scented
Sulphate-free shower gel, scented with essential oils
Natural skin care starts when you wash yourself. This SLS- and paraben-free Bath & Shower Gel will cleanse you effectively and contains no harsh detergents that strip your skin.
Because we don't use SLS, the most common foaming agent in the skin care industry, our gels don't behave in exactly the same way as most commercially available shower gels – and that's a good thing. We've all been trained over the years to equate bubbles with cleanliness but, to be perfectly honest, that's just an illusion. Our gels do bubble, but not in the effusive way you might have been used to (and remember, all those bubbles go down the drain and potentially affect our water table). However, our gels do get you perfectly clean. And you'll notice how much less dry your skin feels after a shower or bath, meaning you don't have to use as much moisturiser. So it's all good. Do remember that because this product is fresh, it needs to be shaken every time you use it.
Choose from our standard blends: stimulating Tea Tree & Peppermint; relaxing Lavender; soothing Sweet Orange & Vanilla; zippy Citrus Zing (a blend of grapefruit, may chang, bergamot & lemon); Clary Sage & Lime; Rose & Vanilla or Cedarwood & Lemongrass . Or create your very own blend in the custom made section. We make custom orders every Tuesday, and ship them on a Wednesday.

Product Testimonials Squeaky Clean Bath & Shower Gel - Scented
I'm having loads of fun combining different oils to make the perfect scents. I used to have to avoid scented products because most contain SLS and parabens along with artificial "parfum" which caused me skin problems. But none of that with these very gentle shower gels combined with essential oils. My favourite combinations so far have been Vanilla & Cinnamon (smells like tasty pastries!) and Lavender & Cedarwood which is a nice variation on the usual Lavender scent. Its a bit fresher somehow. I find it very relaxing and rejuvenating (never find lavender makes me sleepy). My boyfriend is enjoying the blend I picked for him which is Bergamot, Patchouli & Ginger. Its a kind of woody/earthy scent with a hint of spice. We use the shower gels as shampoo as well (it doesn't seem to be that different from the shampoo and can be customised) and the products leave a lovely scent on the hair. Also great as bubble bath. So very versatile!
My husband loves the Clary Sage & Lime. Described it as clean fresh and wakening. Subtle fragrance due to the oils rather than a perfume. Very delicate.
I've now tried two of these shower gels and love them both! The lavender shower gel has a beautiful, gentle and calming smell and it is the only lavender scented product I've ever had that actually smells like the lavender plants that I have in my garden instead of something artificial and sickly. The sweetorange and vanilla has a lovely vibrant orange scent that is slightly softened by the vanilla. Although the description says that these shower gels won't bubble as much as ordinary ones I have found that a little goes a long way and that when I use them on my shower pouf they froth beautifully! It is so nice to use something that is kind to my skin and the environment too. :)
