BAth and shower gels
Although your skin acts as a barrier, it is not impenetrable! A newborn’s skin is especially sensitive and reactive because their epidermal barrier stays underdeveloped until at least two years of age.? Even as an adult, you can absorb a lot of minerals, hormones, and even toxins via your skin and straight into your capillary pathways. And when your skin is hot and relaxed, it is even more permeable.
So, when your child is enjoying that warm bath or you’re in a hot shower, your pores are more ready to receive whatever you’re putting on them. ?♂️ Doesn’t it make even more sense to be especially careful with our bathing products?!
?? YL has a variety of bath and shower gels for all ages. They even have different scents that are emotionally supportive for different times of the day. You can even just buy the bath and shower gel base so you can add your own signature scent!!
Again, I can’t stress enough that YL does not waste our money on water or fillers. These products are very concentrated which allows us to do the diluting ourselves.
With all of these options, breaking down the cost isn’t quite as simple as some of the other products. The original price of the bath wash is directly dependent on the essential oils included.
So, here’s the some deets to help with the math.
No matter which bottle makes sense for you, it comes with 8 oz of goodness inside. In our household, we dilute to make 3-4 bottles of bath wash. (It kind of depends on preference.)
Here’s what the individual products may cost depending on the scent and how much you dilute it –
Shutran 3-in-1 Men’s Wash – about $8 – $10.50/bottle
Evening Peace Bath & Shower Gel – about $7.20 – $9.60/bottle
Sensation Bath & Shower Gel – about $5.30 – $7.10/bottle
Dragon Time Bath & Shower Gel – about $5.20 – $6.90/bottle
Morning Start Bath & Shower Gel – about $4.80 – $6.40/bottle
Lavender Bath & Shower Gel – about $4.75 – $6.30/bottle
KidScents Bath Gel – about $4.10 – $5.40/bottle
Bath & Shower Gel Base – about $4.00 – $5.30/bottle
You can also stretch it even farther by using a foamer top on your bottle.
And, if you really like your suds, you can add a little baking soda. But not so much that it disrupts the PH balance of your skin.
You can also use the concentrated bath gel in this Bubble Bath recipe
