I recently realized I had a sensitivity to SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and have since been going through all the items in my beauty regimen to eliminate this pesky ingredient — you’d be surprised what you find it in. My favorite daily face scrub had SLS in it, so it had to go. This is why I tried Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian Facial Scrub. Their packaging clearly states: “100% Vegetarian. No: Animal Testing, Artificial Colors, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Methyl Sulfate,” so I figured I was in good hands. Even though I tried it because it didn’t have that pesky SLS, I adored it for other reasons. It left my skin absolutely fresh and glowing, it wasn’t harsh and didn’t dry it out, and it smelled divine (probably due to the pineapple and papaya enzymes). Needless to say I have a keeper on my hands.
