How do you get soaps, shampoos and shower gels to make lots of big, fluffy foam? With salt! While salt has a cleansing effect, it can also cause skin and eye irritation. We (consumers) like foam because we’ve learned to associate it with cleanliness and freshness. But you really don’t need that much of it. That is why we wanted to reduce the quantity of salt compared with other products, and ensuring we use salt that is gentle on your skin (sodium laureth sulfate) minimizing the risk of irritation while maintaining the cleansing effect – and why OCKSÅ Shower Gel and OCKSÅ Hand Soap doesn’t create a lot of foam.
