Product Rating: 4.7/5 (As per 14 Customer Reviews)
SLS free bases are free from Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES), Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (SLS) and Parabens. Our SLS Free Shower Gel provides the ultimate shower experience. Pamper your body with luxurious lather that gently cleanses the skin leaving it feeling refreshed and softened. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Rating: I ordered this, to try something new. I have been using Castile soap for the last year in a foamer for shower and hand soap, but it leaves a horrible soap scum even though it leaves my skin soft. Enter this shower gel. It is wonderfully thick, even mixed with 2% FO. Rinses well, lathers well, leaves no residue. Did not dry out my skin. This will be my new staple!!!!

Rating: Great shower gel! Foams gently but profusely and leaves the skin feeling so soft. Responds well to FO did not try it yet with EO.

Rating: I found it very moisturizing without adding any carrier oil into it at all.
Lathers well and leaves a soft feel to my skin. Unlike those which I bought from the store because they made my skin dry after the shower.
Rating: more of a question, I guess. Purchased the organic body wash, was thinking of trying this also. Can this one be thickened with the salt like the organic wash? And if the other wash is organic, is it also SLS free? The write-up doesn't specify! So happy with all the bases I've tried so far, excellent quality!

Rating: tried just a bit on my loofah, and wow, lots of foam, suds and felt great on the skin. Being sls free is another great beneficial property. I will be trying it with some FO's and EO's very soon.
Rating: Really enjoy this base--lathers up well! Have only prepared small batches and mixed eo's but so far so good--lots of positive feedback. NDA service is excellent and shipment very prompt--thank you!
Rating: Thank you ND for offering an alternative to the toxic products out there! The more people using these types of things the more we can get the word out about what's really in the drugstore.

Rating: This shower gel is absolutely fabulous! I am pleasantly surprised by the luxurious lather that this gel provides, even though it's SLS free. It blends beautifully with essential oils and leaves my skin feeling soft. WELL DONE!

Rating: Best shower gel ever! Mixes beautifully with EOs and gives great lather without harsh chemicals. I can't get enough of it. I will be ordering the larger size next time!

Rating: Everyone has been asking for Shower Gel, being that I focus on SLS free, was excited to try this, and it is a hit. Without the essential oils it is clean with 0 odor and with the essential oils it has only essential oil smell. This may actually sell more than the SLS Shampoo which I would never have thought possible! Keep making these great SLS Free bases.
