Product Rating: 4.6/5 (As per 18 Customer Reviews)
SLS free bases are free from Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES), Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (SLS) and Parabens. Our SLS Free Shower Gel provides the ultimate shower experience. Pamper your body with luxurious lather that gently cleanses the skin leaving it feeling refreshed and softened. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% or 5 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Rating: Not sure what i'm doing wrong but even a few drops of FO turns mine into a watery mess. Tried varying amounts of base vs FO to no avail.....it ends up so diluted that I wasted all 33 oz of shower base.......
By:Clara, Ellicott City, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Mar-2008
Rating: I found it very moisturizing without adding any carrier oil into it at all.
Lathers well and leaves a soft feel to my skin. Unlike those which I bought from the store because they made my skin dry after the shower.

Rating: I am satisfied with this product. I wanted an alternative to anything commercial. Works well with a bit of essential oil, it's less dry for the skin than soaps. Lots of soap suds when using with one of these nylon balls.

Rating: tried just a bit on my loofah, and wow, lots of foam, suds and felt great on the skin. Being sls free is another great beneficial property. I will be trying it with some FO's and EO's very soon.

Rating: Very nice product, leaves the skin silky....I just find it a little too liquid.I should use it with a lotion pump I guess, it would be better and I would have less waste.

Rating: I tried the SLS free shower gel this morning, after a hot, sticky night in record heat. I liked the consistency, the lather, and most of all--that my skin felt clean but not dried out afterward. It's mild but effective. I'll definitely be a repeat customer for this product.

Rating: Nice feel but I dont like the DMD hydanation, but I know a preservative is required.
By:Monique, Pembroke Pines, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: I love this shower gel. For an SLS-free gel, it lathers wonderfully. It has a nice, thick consistency, and it is fairly concentrated; a little does go a long way. And, it holds the essential oils great; no shaking is required once the EO's are added. This is a great product, and one that I will definitely order again!
Rating: I started my company a few months back making everything from scratch. I work full time and many nights I lack extra time or energy that making my products need. Then I found N.D. I can produce the same high quality products with all the best ingredients at a fraction of the time! I can\'t say it enough- I LOVE this Company! N.D has friendly professional service staff, high quality bases, outstanding raw materials, exquisite EO\'s and extracts and prices to fit any budget. I really like that N.D offers the SLS/SLSE free shower gel and shampoo bases. My lifestyle, company & products are as natural and organic as I can produce. It means so much to me to offer this bases in my products. It has become a requested favorite by family & customers. Thank You

Rating: Thank you ND for offering an alternative to the toxic products out there! The more people using these types of things the more we can get the word out about what's really in the drugstore.
By:Sandi, Vancouver, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This shower gel is absolutely fabulous! I am pleasantly surprised by the luxurious lather that this gel provides, even though it's SLS free. It blends beautifully with essential oils and leaves my skin feeling soft. WELL DONE!
By:Clories, Petawawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Best shower gel ever! Mixes beautifully with EOs and gives great lather without harsh chemicals. I can't get enough of it. I will be ordering the larger size next time!
By:Stephanie, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Everyone has been asking for Shower Gel, being that I focus on SLS free, was excited to try this, and it is a hit. Without the essential oils it is clean with 0 odor and with the essential oils it has only essential oil smell. This may actually sell more than the SLS Shampoo which I would never have thought possible! Keep making these great SLS Free bases.
