Body Wash

What it is and what it is for?


Body cleansing is essential for the well-being and health of the entire body. Hormones, impurities, product residue or excess oil can affect the health and appearance of the skin.
Cleaning care, such as shower gel, cleaning oils, cleaning creams, among others, are intended to remove dirt and perspiration from the body, keeping the skin clean and healthy, to prevent unpleasant body odors and a bad appearance of the skin.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Body cleansing care has several ingredients, the most effective and common of which are:
Emulsifiers, which are responsible for foaming and also provide thickening.
Detergents, which are the ingredients that promote skin cleansing.
Preservatives, which help keep body cleansing care safe and prevent microbial contamination.
Fragrance, the ingredient that makes the experience of using this care pleasant, promoting a perfumed skin.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


Cleaning care has several types: creams, gels, emulsions, among others.
Cleansing creams and milks are thick and creamy and contain moisturizing ingredients. In addition, they promote a gentle cleansing to the skin without removing its natural oil, such as Toleriane Caring Wash by La Roche Posay and Skin Nourishing Milk Bath by Elemis.
Cleansing oils gently remove residues that clog pores, without causing dry skin, such as PH5 Shower Oil by Eucerin.
Cleaning emulsions are a care formulated based on mild cleaning agents and keratolytic ingredients, regulating and soothing sebum. This care has the purpose of cleaning the skin without harming it, while fighting oiliness, such as PTA Cleansing Emulsion by D’Aveia.
The shower gel and the cleansing gel have a semi-solid texture that liquefies on contact with the skin and are designed for deep cleaning, just like Germisdin Aloe Vera Bath Gel by Isdin and Bariéderm Cica-Gel Nettoyant by Uriage.
The cleansing mousse provides a smooth, fresh foam texture and is designed to effectively remove excess oil from the skin, such as Deep Comfort Body Wash by Clinique.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


Body cleaning care has several types of packaging.
The cleaning or bath gels can be in a dispenser, tube or bottle. Their quantities are from 150ml to 400ml.
Cleaning creams and milks can be found in tubes or bottles and their most frequent amount is 200ml.
The cleaning foam comes in a tube and dispenser, the most frequent amount being 200ml.
Cleaning oils are available in dispensers and bottles. The quantities of the packages are 200ml, 400ml and 1000ml.
Emulsions are found in tubes or bottles and their quantities are 40ml to 500ml.


What to take into account when choosing a body wash care?


When choosing a body cleansing care, it is very important to assess your skin type and see if the treatment you want corresponds to the same. Otherwise, it may cause adverse effects to those desired.
You should choose a care that contains at least some of the ingredients mentioned above, as these ingredients are really beneficial and provide several privileges to your skin.
Another significant criterion is to understand which texture you like best and understand what your skin needs most, such as hydration, the control of excess oil, an intense and deep cleaning, among others.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


In order to improve your experience with cleaning care, the most important, as mentioned earlier, is the choice of the product. That is, assess the needs of your skin and look for a product adapted to it.
Another point to consider is the water temperature, that is, to understand which temperature is the most recommended, according to your needs:
Hot water relaxes muscles, fights stress, reduces nasal obstruction and eliminates dead cells. On the other hand, the skin dries out with high temperature, and may even develop dermatitis.
Cold water helps in recovery from illness, invigorates the mind, prevents muscle inflammation. However, a cold bath can cause a sudden drop in body temperature, leading to hypothermia.
The ideal will be to intercalate your baths and take into account the precise benefits at the time of body cleaning.


What are the pros and cons of using a body wash care?


Body cleansing care effectively cleans and moisturizes the peke, but we must also take into account the disadvantages.
In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
In addition, if the cleaning is done excessively, it will weaken our immune system and can also cause the skin to dry out.
On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the care, this can bring numerous benefits, such as: removing dirt and other unwanted impurities from the skin; deeply moisturize the skin; control excess sebum in the skin; help reduce minor acne problems; combats skin aging; reduces pore sizes; promotes more beautiful and healthy skin.
