So at work I wash my hands approximately 2,347 times. Not exaggerating! Then comes the foam. Foam in, foam out (that’s what the sign says on patient room doors). OUCH that foam burns my hands! What’s even worse is the garbage that is in these hand soaps and foam cleansers. Not good. You want to know what’s in the foam? Tricolsan. What’s Triclosan you ask? It’s an antibacterial hand cleanser. It’s also a hormone disruptor, thyroid disruptor, and potentially carcinogenic. Yikes!
So, I decided that its time to stop this nonsense. This DIY foaming hand soap does the trick! Make your own. I do! ☺
Here is why this is a great hand soap for sensitive skin: Castile baby soft soap is made for baby skin. Lavender essential oil is very soothing to the skin. Gentle and soothing, perfect for sensitive skin. That’s why I love using this soap for my kiddos!
