I like the convenience of liquid hand soap for washing my hands. I also like products that are unscented and not full of unnecessary or harmful ingredients.
I recently tried Nature Clean Natural Liquid Hand Soap (unscented) and I'm pleased with how it performs.
This soap cleans very well and a little goes a long way. I give the bottle one pump and that's plenty for washing my hands.
And the pump works great, not one that you have to "fight with" to get the soap out or one that sprays the walls! ;<) Have you had that kind of soap experience?
NO scent, love that but it also comes in 2 fragrance choices: Citrus and Peppermint. These sound rather nice, if I did like fragranced soaps. ;<)
The ingredient list for Nature Clean Liquid Hand Soap (unscented) :
WATER, POTASSIUM OLEATE (NATURAL COCONUT CLEANSER), GLYCERIN (VEGETABLE SOURCE) AND SODIUM CHLORIDE (SALT).
Can't get much simpler than that!
Compare that with :

Yikes, I know which one I'm buying!!!
And did you know that many of the mainstream liquid soaps are also anti-bacterial? Read here why that can definitely not be a good idea, for regular use. What we use on our skin is ingested into our bodies and does have consequences for our long-term health.
I've always been careful to choose liquid and bar soaps that are not anti-bacterial, for these same reasons but it seems that a lot of the mainstream brands are anti-bacterial. For some consumers that might not be something that they've looked into, before purchasing these kinds of products. Again, buyer beware.
Nature Clean Natural Liquid Hand Soap comes in a generous 16.8 oz. US/ 16 oz. Canada bottle and is priced at about $6 at the places I checked online, including Amazon. It's also available in a large 3L refill size.
And it's biodegradable, eco-friendly and not tested on animals.
The only (two) things that would make this product even better would be to have one with a moisturizing formula and if possible organic too. I wash my hands many times throughout the day and adding a moisturizing ingredient to this liquid soap would be great. I'd be willing to spend a few extra dollars for organic too!
If you're looking for a reasonably priced alternative to the mainstream, chemically-laden liquid soaps that are available, you might want to give Nature Clean Liquid Hand Soap a try. Sometimes, simple is best!
