Have you ever wondered what is different about a face cleanser compared to a body cleanser? Face cleanser formulations should be very gentle, not remove too much oil, and in our opinion contain no penetration enhancers or ingredients irritating to the eyes. A body cleanser will normally use stronger and less detergents that foam more and remove more oil. So what is MooGoo Milk Wash?
The Milk Wash is a face wash formulation packaged into a larger bottle so that it can also be used on the body. We use 4 very mild natural cleansers as a blend is more gentle than one. We don't use SLS or any other petroleum derived detergents.. We certainly don't use Phenoxyethanol or Parabens or other ingredients that we wouldn't want on our eyes or our children. We also use a mix of natural skin conditioning ingredients. We don't use Essential Oils that can also trigger reactions, but instead a blend of Vanilla with the allergy triggering compounds removed.
Our body wash does not create big bubbles like a synthetic detergent. It washes gently and without drying of the skin. Because it is so gentle it is also a no tears formulation in children's eyes. If you are a car mechanic, you may need something stronger. If you wish to stay clean without stripping the skin of oils, the MIlk Wash is for you. If you have skin that easily reacts to a range of chemicals, than our Milk Wash is also perfect.
Free of SLS, Silicones, Phenoxyethanol, PEGS and so much more.
When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.
Coco, Decyl and Lauryl Glucoside (Glucose Based Cleansers)
Glucosides are cleansers derived from mixing glucose with a fatty alcohol. They are generally acknowledged as the most gentle cleansers available. The downsides of glucosides are they do not foam well.
Cocobetaine. (Coconut Oil based cleanser).
Without any Cocobetaine many people found that it didn't foam like what they expected and felt that it wasnt cleansing enough. So we have added this to the blend of cleansers so it retains its mildness, but foams like a cleanser should.
Sodium Cocyl Sarconsinate (Coconut Oil based Cleanser)
Sarcosinates are a class of natural cleansers often used in face cleansers as they are very milkd and non-irritating to the eyes. By blending this with Glucosides, it helps the formula clean effectivly without irritation.
Glyceryl Oleate, Glyceryl Caprylate and Glycol Distearate (Skin Conditioners)
Derived from Glycerin, these help condition and smooth the skin after washing.
Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.
Fragrant Oil (Phthlate Free)
We used to use various Essential Oils in our Milky Shampoo, Conditioner and Milk Wash. EO’s are great if we could talk to each customer and check for allergies. Due to the occasional reaction to EO’s, we removed them. We want to sooth people scalps and even a very small number of reactions to EO’s was distressing for us. But people still want their hair to smell nice. So we worked with another company to develop phthalate free fragrant oil (phthalates are the things in fragrances that a lot of people don’t like) and since then the response has been great.
