    I think a good rule to try to go by 99% of the time is that if you wouldn't dare to put it in your mouth, don't put it on your skin.

    The products don't need the tiny plastic beads anyway.

    And no one needs anti bacterial soap. Regular soap will wash away the germs.

    That reminds me of the Seinfeld epi when Kramer puts those into the salsa at the cinco de mayo store that Elaine has a problem with.

    I use loofa which is already embedded in coconut oil bar which is use in my daily shower or bath. I just throw it away when it stop lathering. I read loofa is natural and plant based and coconut oil is less harmful to the environment than the current store-bought soap and shampoos by multinational companies like P&G, Unilever, etc. which are actually detergents and now made of various chemicals instead of natural oil.
