Patanjali Anti Bacterial Herbal HandWash Review

Personal Recommendation:
Consider finding products without additives, otherwise this looks fine.

Personal Opinion:
+ Very nice smell
+ The soap comes off the hands easily and leaves no noticeable residue
+ Product is sold as both a pump bottle and refill sachet
– 2 synthetic preservatives, perfume, and colour

(+ good, – bad, * neutral)

Plant medicine ingredients:
+ Azadirachta indica → Neem ⇒ clears toxins, antifungal, promotes healing
+ Ocimum sanctum → Tulsi or Holy Basil ⇒ antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and wound healing
Other ingredients:
◙ Aqua → water
◙ Gel base → …just one of those unknowns chalked up to trust
– Diazolidenyl urea → synthetic preservative ⇒ mild irritation for sensitive skin types
– IPBC → synthetic preservative ⇒ gastrointestinal and liver toxin, risks to human reproduction and development, risk of skin allergy
◙ Sugandhit dravya → aromatic substance ⇒ to improve the scent
◙ Permitted colour (CI: 15985)
◙ QS either referring to the base materials as a whole or specifically to the colour. Either way, it means ‘the amount which is enough’.
