Ivory Body Wash — 100% water, No substance

So they changed the formula again...this time they dilute the liquid soap with more water to the point that it became pointless to use the product now.

Will now go use other products. Thanks P&G for destroying the brand.

"I call hogwash on body wash. "

Body wash is a lousy deal compared to good old fashioned bar soap, including Ivory's White. (No name had soap is just as good and also cheaper still.)

So instead of hand-wringing over body wash, switch to bar soap.

Same with Sunlight dishsoap, very watered down and suds don't last. I've switched to using Dawn...smaller bottle but I'm using less product.

I saw these on sale at Loblaws this week for $3.99.
Luckily I did not buy.;)
Olay body wash from Costco plus the odd sales on Irish spring, Old Spice and Lever 2000 body wash is enough for my needs anyway.

Real RFDers use the hard yellow Sunlight soaps in the laundry aisle. Let it sit outside of the package for a few weeks to really dry out and last longer. Then either meld the slivers in the next bar or put then in a jar of water to make homemade softsoap.

I also find most traditional soaps to be easier-going on my skin than most detergent-based products (most "liquid soaps" or body washes are detergent-based. Something like Dr. Bronners though is a true liquid soap.) Dove beauty bars are not called soap for a reason--they are solid detergents with moisturizers added. Electric Light Bulb The Dove commercials where they claim soaps don't have the right pH are correct, as soaps are alkaline by nature...but the pH on the skin will eventually adjust, whereas the detergents that are effective at stripping more lipids from the skin are more drying for my atopic skin in the long run.

Uh, sorry, I'm rambling again.

Good thread, these threads of watering down products (almost literally in this case) is crucial to RFD.

If you have bought shampoo free with coupons and CO51 or points, shampoo can be used in place of body wash

We need a RFD Body Wash Cost Calculator! Someone works in a lab that can measure soap concentration?

Dish soap as well from how watery Palmolive has become.

Or just avoid body wash altogether and use bar soap. Much cheaper. Just as effective.

They may not be thickening it as they used to. I make body wash and shampoo etc and it's actually extremely thin and mostly water due to the nature of the product, generally most brands add a thickener because that's how people like it. As Peanutz said, it's really a detergent, like most liquid and bar soap on the market.

Will still need a Bar Soap Calculator, how would you know bar soap isn't just mixed with more non-soap ingredients huh?


Also need a Bar Soap Risk Calculator.... when you drop that slippery bar soap what can happen man!!
