My experience with the product –
My hands got tanned during my recent trip to Srisailam.I used this every alternate day and my tan started vanishing.I was really happy to use it.It has mild grains and gives me a smooth feeling .Doesn’t make me feel greasy and decently priced as well.It has small grains which I always love using on my oily skin and yes it has a nice fragrance too.
But there are something which I would like to bring in front of you before going ahead.This product has many drawbacks which might not come across to many.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate – Well this is a common ingredient and many companies claims that it is natural because it is derived from vegetable oil.Many of you must be knowing that the same ingredient is used in cleaning garage floors also.
When SLS is tested on animals their eyes stops developing and I have even read that if it goes under children eyes then they might get cataracts too .
Ok lets ignore this ingredient and come to another one which is PEG ingredients -This is a toxic ingredient.
Moving ahead we have Triethamolamine and Methlisothiazolinone in it.- Both these ingredients gives negative effect even if taken in low doses. Infact some of the nations have banned this ingredient .
