Body Washes

Body Wash Ingredients

Description: Body washes are liquid skin cleansers that contain mild surfactants. This makes them very similar to shower gels. The main difference between the two is the texture. Body washes tend to have a more fluid soapy consistency, where shower gels tend to have a firmer, more gel-like structure. To add to this, body washes have more hydrating and moisturizing properties.  

Trends and ingredients: as with many Personal Care products, Body Washes have become more and more tailor-made. You can find products suitable to many different skin types. To accommodate this increase in variety of formulations, IngreCore offers a wide range of ingredients required to make the ideal body wash for a specific skin type. From the most present ingredient, surfactants, to thickeners and moisturizing agents and a good example is IngreSil EMU60.
