sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (from palm)

Directions of use

In the shower apply a small amount to your hands or bath ball and lather all over the body. It is also ideal as a bubble bath, in the spa, washing delicates or at the hand basin. The product is pure and gentle for babies, children, the elderly and those with sensitive or fragile skin.


As with all A’kin cleansers the product always seems to be clear in colour, this is a thick gel like consistency. The smell of jasmine really smells uplifting and not artificial, it fills my bathroom with the aroma, and the smell relaxes me as I unwind from a stressful day. On it’s own the product can produce a rich foam but I like to use this with a body puff to produce extra foam, this cleansed my skin very well and it looked a lot clearer in the 3 weeks I have tested. However it did not deliver the silky smooth skin it promised me I found some dry patches on my arms. The smell of jasmine does not linger on to your skin. It is a very economical shower gel as I use very little product when I shower and I can say I have only use 10% off the bottle since I had it. The bottle of 225ml cost £7.49 and can be purchased from mypure
