WHAT ALOE VEDA CLAIMS ABOUT JOJOBA OIL WITH GREEN TEA EXTRACTS SOAP?

Take a slow bath with Jojoba Oil fortified with rejuvenating Green Tea extracts and Vitamin E - rich Wheat Germ Oil. This blend with Aloe Vera Gel and natural Glycerine is very rich in vitamins, proteins and anti-oxidants and is absorbed into the skin to make it glow with health.

Ingredients: Soap Noodles, Merquat Plus 3330, Sodium PCA, Sorbitol, Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E, Quinanzaine Green, Green Tea Extracts and Fragrance, Jojoba Oil.

MORE DETAILS ON THE INGREDIENTS:

Green Tea: Anti-bacterial and an anti-oxidant, which keeps skin healthy.
Wheatgerm Oil: Rich in Vitamin E
Jojoba Oil: Provides hydration and moisturization to the skin.
Aloe Vera: Is highly known for its skin benefits.
Merquat Plus: Helps the soap produce rich and thick foam. Gives a silky velvety feel to the skin. Reduces the stretched dry feeling you get with normal soaps.
Sodium PCA: A natural ingredient that helps in binding moisture to the skin cells, leaving the skin highly moisturized after bath.
Sorbitol: Provides transparency to the soap. Also acts as a humectant (helps retain moisture in the skin cells) like sodium PCA.
Quinanzaine Green: This is probably the soap's green color. I couldn’t find any information on this ingredient.


Aloe Veda Jojoba Oil with Green Tea Extracts Soap Ingredients


THE PLUSES:

This soap is quite moisturizing and leaves the skin squeaky clean. Ideal to be used in humid weather. Quite good for people with oily skin. May be a little dry for people with dry skin, if used in winters. The fragrance stays on the body for hours after bath, so you don’t need to use a separate perfume.

THE MINUSES:

The soap smells like Tea tree oil but the fragrance is a little on the higher side, which I didn't like. For me, bathing should be a spa like experience to calm your senses and not to overwhelm them.

The synthetic perfume made me giddy if I happened to bring the soap near my nose, though thankfully, the fragrance left behind on the body after bath was milder. I have not repurchased this soap because of too much perfume.

Same problem as with all their soaps - Poor and difficult to remove packing. Plus this particular soap bar was a little beaten on the edges (thanks to poor storage condition of the online store). I have noticed the soaps I had bought in last winter were hardened just because of poor packing.

AVAILABILITY:

Available on the Aloe Veda Online store, urbantouch.com, goodlife.com, medplusbeauty.com (at 25% introductory discount), helathkart.com, flipkart.com etc.
