Ok, I’m not one to shy away from hand washing at the best of times but, lately, thanks to the flu that’s given pigs a bad name, I’m hand washing a whole lot more.
Thankfully, to save my skin and make the process a whole lot more enjoyable, I’ve disovered Miessence Refillable Foaming Hand Soap $16.95, and I seriously can’t get enough of its organic lemon myrtle scent.
And it turns out that using those over-the-counter antibacterial soaps may not be the best way to prevent illness as the common ingredient, Triclosan, can cause some bacteria to become resistant to antibotics, according to a study by the University of Michigan.
Other reasons to love this Miessence soap – the instant foaming action requires little water and the natural cleansers, such as organic lemon myrtle and tea tree essential oils, easily remove dirt and germs without stripping the skin of its natural protective barrier. It also contains moisturising ingredients, such as organic rosehip oil. It’s a true soap: its made with saponified plant oils, so it’s naturally free of synthetic chemicals and detergents.
