Be warned! What you are about to learn about your everyday body wash may shock you. Yes, that one in your shower right now is the most expensive body wash you can find. See why.

The shocking truth.

The modern world loves body wash. It feels luxurious, smells heavenly and doesn’t clog up drains with soap. It is estimated 80% of the population use body wash and shower gels every day.

But did you know that 80% of body wash users, especially children and the less coordinated among us, spill 40% of their potions on the shower walls and 10% on the floor!

So you think you paid a good price for your body wash? Wrong, you paid double, because half of it went down the drain, like your money.

But there is a darker hidden expense we pay for our body wash.

Look closely at the ingredients on your body wash label. See a long list of cheap, man made chemicals.

Some of them you have heard of before, usually in relation to health risks and disease.These sweet smelling chemical cocktails could be a hazard to your health.
