Fresh and Clean
Hand wash used to be something I didn’t think twice about, but now that I’m more concerned with good-for-you ingredients that won’t dry me out, I definitely pay attention.

This soap is antibacterial and includes lactic acid, olive oil, coconut oil and glycerin so you can make sure you’re clean, but not dry and damaged. -Alexandra Donaldson, fashion & beauty editor
