This gentle and high foaming shower gel is good for all skin types. Plantapon, Cocamidopropyl Betaine and SMC Taurate provide good cleansing and foaming without stripping natural oils from skin. Used at a low percentage, GuarSilk provides just enough conditioning and adds viscosity to this formula. Raspberry Dimethicone WS offers emolliency and helps to solubilize essential and fragrance oils. PEG 150 Distearate adds viscosity.
