Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Liquid Hand Soap

Posted

Pros: works great, smells great, readily available

Cons: bad chemicals

I was totally hooked on this soap in many scents until I learned that it has 1,4 Dioxane in it.  This is an ingredient that does not have to be listed and has come into great concern recently because of it's high carcinogenic properties.  I have received numerous emails flagging this toxin and listing this product.  It's a bummer cause it does work great and has a fabulous smell.  Use with caution.

Pros: great smell

Cons: maybe too smelly

I received this as a housewarming gift when I moved into my new home, and I absolutely love the lavender smell. I keep it in my guest bathroom so that everyone else can enjoy its scent.The scent may be too strong for some people, so I would suggest using a small dab when you wash your hands.

Pros: Smells good, cleans well

Cons: Has SLS in it, a little drying

So Mrs. Meyer's touts their natural ingredients...I guess some people argue that sodium lauryl sulfate is "natural" given that it's derived from coconut or palm kernal oil...but....but....I'm not so keen on it in my personal care products, given that it's used as an engine degreaser.  Sadly, there it is, plain and simple in Mrs. Meyer's hand soap.  That, and sodium laureth sulfate...the "fragrance" ingredient is also a little mysterious.

 

Beyond that, it's not a terrible soap.  It cleans well and doesn't leave my hands as dry as some other "natural-ish" soaps I've tried (but it still doesn't hold a candle to Dr. Bronner's hand soap).  It sudses well (but that's probably because of the SLS) and washes off cleanly.  And the lemon verbena one smells quite nice.  According to Mrs. Meyer's Environment and Safety Info, their products are biodegradable and what not...but I think I might avoid picking this up after we get through this bottle.
