How sharp are your formulating skills? Cosmetics & Toiletries puts them to the test with the new 'Label Challenge.'
Each Monday, we post a product ingredient disclosure to our social media pages (LinkedIn and Facebook) and you guess the product/product type in the comments. Answers are published here and shared through our Friday newsletters—and include a shoutout to the winners.
This Week's Answer
Caress Shea Butter & Brown Sugar Body Wash, a gentle exfoliating body wash to enhance radiant skin. This body soap is said to wash away dirt and bacteria while leaving skin feeling moisturized. It also can be used as hand soap. Users are directed to smooth the lather all over for a glowing effect. Additionally, the product's fragrance is reported to offer aromatherapy benefits.
