Baby Body Wash and other Personal Cleaning Solutions

I dated a Nurse many years ago who told me baby body is superior to all soaps at all ages as its mild and not abrasive to the skin. Since then It is the only thing I have used as a skin cleaneser when showering. I shave my head also so its also a mild scalp cleaner. Not had any issues with this.

Ingredients: Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, PEG-150 Distearate, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Chloride, Polyquaternium-10, Fragrance, Quaternium-15, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide.

I also to add a scent and for areas prone to sweating such as the armpits etc a Tea Tree Oil to the baby body wash.

Sometimes however and lately I have found that now its getting colder my skin is drying out, I was wondering if anyone thought it could be the baby body wash or the tea tree oil. I am debating changing up the tea tree oil for a lavander oil or maybe an aloe oil or coconut oil to see how that would work with the baby body wash.

Any thoughts?

I am not a fan of Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS). Do some Googling. It's not a benign substance. I like paraben and SLS-free body washes from the health food store.

It's the SLS (sodium laureth sulfate). It's very drying. And if you had any hair, it would strip it of its luster and color. If I were you, I'd look for something more natural and without the SLS. I know I wouldn't use that product on my baby!
