Washing your hands can be a whole lot more fun when you get hand soap that you actually like using. Take a look at this bottle of Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap. It’s a glycerin based hand soap and contains lemon essential oil, chamomile, aloe and vitamin E. That sounds pretty good, right?

Let’s take a closer look and see how the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap fares compared to those bigger names that are out there.

First off, it’s pricey. I got this bottle on sale for $3.99 but at regular price it’s almost $9. That’s pretty hefty but then again, some big brand names cost more than that. Ever wonder what’s in their soap? Let’s move on, shall we?


Product Review: What ingredients are in the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap?

Here are the ingredients that went into the Avalon Organics Lemon hand soap: organic aloe barbadenssis leaf juice, aqua, decyl glucoside, coco-glucoside, sorbitol, xathan gum, organic calendula officinalis flower extract, organic chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, organic citrus limon (lemon) peel extract, organic lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flower/leaf/stem extract styrax benzoin resin extract, cedrus atlantica bark oil, citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, citrus grandis (grapefruit) peel oil, citrus limon (lemon) peel oil, litsea cubeba fruit oil, bisabolol, citric acid, organic glycerin, hydrolyzed wheat protein, tocopheryl acetate, organic alcohol, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, citral, limonene.

Holy moly, that was one seriously long list of ingredients! Took me so long to type it all out, I’m convinced there are a million typos in there and I’m not going back to fix any of them. Take a closer look and then I realize, although it’s a really really long ingredient

list, Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap is made with relatively mundane stuff like lavender, lemon, lime, and orange peel oil. The official names are pretty long and scary so it’s easy to be scared by them. Of course the use of sodium benzoate isn’t for everyone. I’m a little iffy on that one as well but the good news is, Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap contains no phthalates, sulfates or parabens.


Product Review: How’s the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap?

For this product review, I enlisted the help of my big kid to test out the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap. She likes all things lemon so she was eager to give it a try.

Now, I have to apologize for this photo. You probably can’t see anything in it but if you look carefully, you’ll see a transparent sheen – that’s the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap. Notice, it’s completely transparent – no funny colours, nothing.

The first time my big kid washed her hands with Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap she let out a ‘it smells good! Like real lemons!’ so that’s a good sign. Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap has a decent amount of suds and made hand washing less of a chore.

I tried Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap as well and I liked the way my hands felt after using it. They didn’t feel dry or chapped. My hands just had a nice clean feeling without feeling parched or zapped of all moisture. The lemon scent was a very nice added bonus.


Verdict:

I don’t make soap so I don’t know how it all works. I like the Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap and my kid certainly does too. The fresh lemon scent made from natural oils is terrific even with the sodium benzoate. The only other thing is, what’s with all the other essential oils and what not when all I can really smell is the lemon? I’m not sure what the purpose is of all the other ingredients. Do they each provide benefits?? I have no clue. Not a bad or a good thing just a comment.

Would I buy Avalon Organics lemon glycerin hand soap again? Yes, I think so. I certainly would rather spend my money on it than use one of those big name brands that are full of parabens, phthalates, and other gunk.
