Growing up my favourite soap was Pears translucent soap. And my favourite body moisturiser was Nice and Icy. Ha Ha, at this stage l had no idea about nasty chemicals & ingredients that company’s add to their products.
You might not know the kinds of ingredients they use either.
Pears soap, made by Unilever, is touted as
“Pears Transparent Pure & Gentle Soap with natural oils, the gentle way to keep your skin looking beautiful”
This inspired me to start my own brand of Perfume and aromatherapy products.
