If you look closely you'll actually find the ingredients 80-90% (hey I'm too lazy to be math-precise lol) THE SAME. So tell me again why are there SHAMPOOS vs SHOWER GELS? So companies can convince you to buy MORE ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Spotlight to the notorious SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, which is for foaming and cleansing, a known irritant to skin (which, in all justice, so are many organic ingredients. But just so you know.)

During SLS production, a byproduct 1,4-DIOXANE ๐Ÿ’€might be formed. Under Proposition 65 of the US state of California, it is classified to cause cancer.

๐Ÿ™ŠOh well.

It all depends on the DOSAGE. But considering we've been showering almost everyday (or twice a day) for 20+ years of our lives, I don't know whether this would accumulate in our body. So, good luck :)๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Also that large "Hermes parfum" is just rubbing it in telling you 'hey you won't know how many chemicals I've put in this bottle!!!!' ๐ŸŽƒ...

STAY TUNED for some tips to identify non-sulfate based shampoo/body wash!
