TrueBody -- Review!

Who doesn't love a good hot shower or a lovely, relaxing hot bath? I know I do. What I DON'T love is choosing the right soap. Too many chemicals... no lather... too oily... too drying...

Soap can be very confusing.

Mike and I both have dry skin -- but we need a light moisturizer, nothing heavy. Neither of us like over-powering fragrance, either.

Mike, especially, requires unscented soaps as he works outside (both winter and summer) and fragrance attracts bugs and insects.

When I discovered TrueBody Soaps I was delighted! These soaps are fragrance-free, lightly moisturized, and not at all drying! Heaven!

Our Story:

TrueBody Products was started by three friends who wanted to make good, healthy products at a fair price. We designed it to be the kind of company we've always wanted to work for—one where a commitment to useful products, happy people, strong community and a thriving planet supports the pursuit of a healthy bottom line.
Our Mission is to make products that:

*Contribute to a healthy lifestyle
*Are manufactured, packaged, marketed, distributed, used and disposed of in ways that are kind to the Earth
*Are fairly priced and widely accessible

The first time I used it -- I was so impressed. One of my pet peeves is bar soap that won't lather. Not an issue with TrueBody. This soap lathers quickly and it doesn't disappear. I never had to re-lather the wash cloth at all! Mike confirms. We've been using TrueBody Bar Soap for about 4 weeks and we are STILL using that first bar! It lasts quite a long time and that is something to celebrate.

TrueBody Soap:

TrueBody Soap is an all-natural, basic, everyday bar of soap.

•It’s unscented—which means there’s no added ingredient to mask any naturally occurring scent. In fact, there are only five ingredients—Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Water, Vegetable Glycerine and Sodium Citrate—so it’s great for those who are sensitive to fragrance or other chemicals.
•Plus, it makes a great lather and lasts a long time.
•And, it comes in a 3-pack to provide better value while minimizing packaging.

Our Ingredients:

Unlike many conventional bath/beauty bars, TrueBody Soap is made without animal by-products, synthetic ingredients or chemical preservatives. In fact, due to a revolutionary process, TrueBody Soap is one of the first bar soaps on the market that is vegetable-based and entirely free of EDTA, chelates or any other type of synthetic preservative. (Due to the necessary use of fat or oil to create soap, all bar soaps, even organic ones, currently contain some type of preservative to keep the fat/oil from going rancid over time.)

I am equally impressed with TrueBody's Facial Soap. TrueBody Facial Soap is rich in emollients and anti-oxidants to moisturize, soothe and soften.

It's also unscented, offers a rich lather, and leaves no residue on your skin.

As a 50 year old woman -- a facial soap which cleans without drying is important with me. I need all the help I can get! (Okay, stop laughing)

TrueBody Soaps are very reasonably priced and are found at many on-line and brick-and-mortar stores.

You'll get 3 bars of body soap or 2 bars of facial soap for approx. $5.50! That is an incredible value. The packaging is both simple and convenient -- you're paying for the soap not fancy, expensive wrap!

The folks at TrueBody are always eager to hear from their customers -- they appreciate your feedback and your ideas. To connect with them, you can *like* their Facebook page and follow them @truebody on Twitter
