Playful textures abound in Merci Handy's Slime Shower Jelly, Unicorn Edition, a clean body cleanser complete with a trendy format and shimmer.

The shower gel is stretchy and jiggly (see video below), and utilizes glycerin to hydrate skin. Other ingredients include several surfactants, such as sodium laureth sulfate; PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, which helps form emulsions; and synthetic fluorphlogopite, a bulking agent.

Consumers are meant to pinch off a small amount of the product while bathing before applying directly to skin to form a lather. The company recommends refrigerating the product before use, ostensibly for a satisfying textural transformation.

Ingredients: Water (aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Acrylates/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate Copolymer, Decyl Glucoside, Acrylates Copolymer, Sodium Chloride, Fragrance (parfum), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Sodium Hydroxide, Chlorphenesin, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium, Benzoate, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, CI 16035 (Red 40)
