What to look for in a body wash

What to look for in a body wash

The primary goal of any body wash is to cleanse and refresh the skin, but finding an effective formula that’s kind to the skin is often easier said than done. The ideal body wash should respect the skin’s barrier and leave you feeling fresh and clean without any compromises—and here are a few body-wash benefits to look out for.

Gentle cleansing agents: Steer clear of formulas that contain harsh surfactants that can strip the skin of its natural oils (and leave it feeling dry and tight).

A non-irritating formula: Anyone with sensitive skin or eczema knows that traditional body washes that contain harsh surfactants, allergens, or fragrance can send your skin into a tailspin. A non-irritating formula ensures you get the clean, fresh skin you want without any unwanted side effects.

A non-comedogenic formula: Those with blemish-prone skin likely know the importance of choosing non-comedogenic facial skincare (and hair-care) products, and the same holds true for every square inch of your body.

Skin-soothing ingredients: In addition to gentle cleansing agents, a body wash formula with naturally-derived ingredients that calm the skin is a win-win.

A fragrance-free option: Whether you experience scent sensitivity or simply want to let your perfume or cologne take center-stage, everyone should have the right to choose between scented and fragrance-free.

If this sounds like too much to ask, it’s not—because SEEN’s Body Wash is here! You asked for a neck-down companion for your non-comedogenic, non-irritating, skin-friendly SEEN hair-care regimen and we made it happen. Designed to gently yet effectively cleanse skin without disrupting the skin’s barrier, this plant-based formula was dermatologist-designed to meet the same stringent standards and deliver the skin-caring results you’ve come to expect from our shampoo, conditioner, and styling products.

Inspired by our award-winning shampoo formula (which took four years to develop!) and optimized for the body, SEEN Body Wash is available in both scented and fragrance-free, and designed to leave your skin feeling fresh and balanced. This clean, non-comedogenic, non-irritating body wash also features naturally-derived, skin-soothing bisabolol along with glycerin for much-needed hydration that won’t clog pores.

Among the ingredients you won’t find are sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, gluten, or dyes. SEEN Body Wash is also vegan and cruelty-free (just like all of our products)—and the fragrance-free version has been awarded the National Eczema Association’s Seal of Acceptance™, which means that it’s safe for those with sensitive and eczema-prone skin.

Formulated to support the skin’s health and clarity, this elevated body wash allows you to enjoy SEEN from head to toe!
