Seventh Generation Fresh Citrus Natural Hand Wash

Scented with essential oils and botanical extracts, this is a great hand wash for messy places, such as the kitchen, where an expensive bottle of organic hand wash might not make economic sense. While the ingredient list is not entirely organic essential oils (our ideal), this soap doesn’t contain any parabens, dyes, or synthetic fragrances. The best part is the great value, costing around $3 for a 12 ounce container at Home Depot. It’s also available in an unscented variety labelled “free and clear.”

Ingredients: Aqua, sodium coco sulfate*, decyl glucoside*, aloe barbadensis leaf extract*, glycerin*, magnesium chloride and sodium chloride (mineral), glyceryl caprylate/caprate*, coco-glucoside*, glyceryl oleate*,  essential oils and botanical extracts** (citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, citrus grandis (grapefruit) peel oil, citrus nobilis (mandarin orange) peel oil),  citric acid*, lauryl lactyl lactate*, methylisothiazolinone and benzisothiazolinone and tetrasodium iminodisuccinate (synthetic).

No phosphates.
**d-limonene is a component of these essential oils.
