Gently washes off dirt
ALTHOUGH there are several different skin types, the basic chemistry of body wash is usually the same. Most skin cleansing products are generally made up of two parts: a lipophilic part, which is fat-soluble, and a hydrophilic part, which is water-soluble.
Dirt itself is lipophilic, which means that it won’t dissolve in water. Simply rinsing yourself with water after you’ve got some dirt on yourself won’t get you clean. Only something with a fatty product will dissolve the dirt and lift it off your skin.
Some liquid skin cleansers actually don’t include fatty acids. These are called “syndets”, which is short for synthetically produced detergent. Instead of fats, syndets are made with petrochemicals, which are derived from petroleum, or oleochemicals, which are derived from fats and oils.
The most common Syndet is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and is found in most commercially available soaps and shampoos, but being a common ingredient doesn’t mean it’s harmless. It can cause skin irritation, eczema, itchiness, and even damage to the eyes. SLS has been known to damage hair follicles and causes scalp problems including dandruff.
There is a need to understand the natural chemistry of the human skin and skin cleansing products in order to choose one that is suitable for your family members. Just as with any type of skin cleanser, the type of body wash you use will depend on your skin type. There are four common skin types – normal, oily, dry and sensitive.
If you have dry skin, strong soap may be too harsh for you, because it removes a lot of the oils that your skin already lacks. Instead, use a mild cleanser, MooGoo, Australia’s leading natural skincare brand, has developed a full range of products that is suitable for people of all skin types by using alternative ingredients that are natural yet effective. which will often have the words “cream” or “oil” in the name.
If you have normal or oily skin, you don’t have to worry about using mild cleansers – regular soap or body wash should work fine.
There are also many types of body wash in the market designed especially for oily skin. Some are even designed to help clear up body acne caused by excess oil.
People with sensitive skin may have the hardest time deciding which body wash to use. If you have allergic reactions to certain beauty products, such as redness or itching, try to avoid body washes that have fragrances or a lot of preservatives, since sensitive skin will commonly react negatively to those two ingredients
There are natural products in the market that are specially formulated to take into account the chemistry interplay between the human skin and the need for effective cleansing that is not damaging to the skin.
