Size: 9.0 oz (270 ml)

Sciote Pure & Natural Body Wash is a luscious and refreshing body cleanser designed for people looking to detoxify and condition skin, without irritation or discomfort. This effective wash uses gentle ingredients to adequately wipe away dirt, remove impurities and balance skin tone. Along with all of the products offered by Truth In Aging, we've made sure to test and review the Sciote Pure & Natural Body Wash, in order to guarantee it will provide you with healthy, rejuvenated skin. If you’re on the lookout for the perfect product to provide your skin with moisture, vitamins and minerals, shop Truth In Aging today.

Sciote Pure & Natural Body Wash uses decyl glucoside to gently and mildly lock in moisture, unlike many soaps and cleansers that use harmful surfactants, which can dry out and prematurely age skin. Burdock Root is used to detoxify and increase circulation, while Hemp Seed Oil reduces inflammation and calms itchiness and dryness, leaving your skin refreshed and glowing.

Taormina features fresh & sweet notes of pomegranate, sweet pea and italian orange blossom with a hint of neroli and red tea.

TIA Review by Marta:
Many members of the Truth In Aging community know that I am a stickler for good cleansers—and that goes for body washes as well. Surfactants (the things that make cleanser foam and suds) are harsh for the skin, binding to the proteins of the stratum corneum (source). A gentle and effective body wash is immediately and noticeably less drying and means that I can even use less body lotion after my shower. Always on the lookout for a great one, I was excited to try Sciote’s Pure & Natural Body Wash.

The Sciote body wash gives a great first impression with a lovely scent and a light, silky feel. But my main concern was what surfactants were being used. Soaps and detergents can damage proteins, interact with keratins, swell skin cell membranes and decrease the skin’s water-binding capacity (source). In short, bad soap dries the skin out and prematurely ages it.

So I was pleased to see that Sciote’s sudser is decyl glucoside, which is coconut-derived, gentle enough for baby products and posseses moisture-binding properties as well. Then there’s coco-glucoside, which Duhring Chamber Test lists as having the lowest irritation score of all common surfactants, and coco-betaine, another relatively mild cleanser.

My inner hippie likes that the oil used is from cannabis (although I have to admit not the version that has the psychoactive compound). Still, hemp oil has benefits for the skin—it has the same fatty acids that are in skin lipids and it lubricates beneath the surface of the skin. Itchy, dry skin (my plight this past winter) is also greatly helped by hemp oil. There are plenty of other good things, including soothing calendula, detoxifying burdock and mineral-rich nettle leaf extract.

Using Sciote’s Pure & Natural Body Wash has had the kind of effect on my skin that I would expect from switching lotions. I have really suffered this winter (and non-existent spring) from an itchy, flaky, rash-prone body from neck to toe. This body wash has really contributed to reducing these symptoms and leaving my skin more comfortable after shower. Of course, I still need to moisturize, but my skin feels way less needy.

Initially, I found that I was using too much of the product. As it isn’t very sudsy, it was a little hard to gage. Ultimately, I found it best to give a couple of pumps to a dampened wash cloth. This gives enough for a top to toe cleanse.

Sciote’s Body Wash comes in three scents. Mine is Gira Sole and I find it to be subtly citrusy and a little gingery. In fact, Sciote says the blend is yuzu, grapefruit, blood orange, red ginger and green tea.

    The one skin care product that I've not changed in decades is what I use when I bathe. I've been a FAITHFUL user of L'Occitane's Verbena Extra Gentle soap with shea butter. I purchased Sciote's Pure & Natural Body Wash for use in my guest room bathroom and another bottle for my mother on her 90th birthday (as part of a large gift basket). The Taormina scent was the only scent available in the store, but I love the healing qualities of pomegranate and took a chance. I decided that before I put this body wash out for guests, that I needed to 'test drive' how it worked!

    To my great delight, the very first time I applied it to my skin with a washcloth, it literally glided on, leaving me feeling extremely cleansed and moisturized. I ended up using more product the first time than I really needed. I found out quickly that a relative little goes a long way. I do not take showers, just baths and had concerns about residue in my large whirlpool tub. There has been none from this product. Although the body wash is scented it is subtle enough not to be offensive, but has just enough scent to be enjoyable. I've also been extremely set in my after-bath body creams, so I decided to just start with the Sciote Body Wash before investing in the Sciote body firming lotion. I've continued using my faithful L'Occitane Almond Velvet Balm after bathing and there are no issues with mixing of scents. In short, I'll have to purchase a third bottle. I've kept my guest room supply for myself and I am certain that my mother will definitely enjoy this body wash--she too, loves pomegranate, one of the Taormina scent's ingredients. Thank you TIA again, for making such a lovely product at a good price.
