With no synthetic detergents, sodium lauryl or sodium laureth sulfate,Silky's Garden Shampoo / Body Wash is thick, rich, 100% natural, all-vegetable based body wash gel that leaves your skin feeling silky, smooth and satisfied.
The great thing about these body washes is that they make great shampoo too, so you can eliminate a bottle in the show!

Natural shampoos do not provide the lathering, foaming suds that you are accustomed to from most commercial shampoos today. But most off-the-shelf drug store shampoos and even many high end shampoos contain ingredients that are known to be harsh chemicals which penetrate your hair and skin over the years leaving trace elements in your body.
Sulfates (chemicals in most shampoos) make shampoo lather. But lathering does nothing except make bubbles, and damage your hair. Industries understand that people associate lathering with cleaning, so they add the sulfates. Don't buy into it. Thus, natural shampoos do not lather very much.
Most sulfate-free shampoos get a bad rap because they don’t lather as much as “traditional” shampoos. In fact, it’s these evil sulfates that actually give shampoos all that thick lovely lather, all the while it is drying out your hair and scalp (hello psoriasis!) and – if you color your hair – sucking all the dye right out of cuticle.
Shampoos that do *not* contain sulfates do not lather as much, if at all, so users MISTAKENLY think that their hair isn’t getting clean, so they either apply more product than is necessary or they shampoo two or three times. Don’t worry about the lack of lather, your hair is getting just as clean, the only difference is that you’re not sucking all of the (necessary) natural oils from your scalp, causing the dryness, itching and flaking
