Personal care items, including most body washes, often contain artificial fragrances, chemicals, and dyes that can irritate the skin.
Scented body wash is a fun way to wake up your senses in the morning or calm them down at night. Scented body wash can provide valuable nourishment to your skin, if it contains the right ingredients.
