          I love this body wash. I was using the bar soap at first but that was becoming too messy so I switched over to the body wash and it is so much better. My skin is so soft afterwards. This is the only body wash I use.

            Not only does this product smell nice. It leaves your skin moist and not drying like soap does. Also no white film on my skin.

                        When it comes to Eczema, we have heard some fantastic feedback. This wash helps to calm and soothe the skin. We'd also suggest the African Black Bar Soap.
