Health Basic Dermaplus Soothe

published

I final found a product that doesn't send my body into instant rash, but then they decided to change the product and now it burns my skin, I am hunting down any old stock at any store I can find it in Perth.

Going backwards

published

Extremely disappointed with the new Health Basics Skin IQ body wash which has increased in price and seems to have overtaken Health Basics Dermaplus Soothe on the shelves at Woolworths and Coles. The Skin IQ formula has an odd aroma, like a damp smell. It leaves your skin during and after wash feeling dry.

I hope the Dermaplus Soothe formula continues to make it on to the shelves, it has a fresh aroma, creamy texture, leaving your skin feeling refreshed not to mention cheaper than Skin IQ.

Purchased in October 2019 at Coles.

Misleading Labeling

published

Label claims to be Soap-free and while traditional soap is made with Lye (or Sodium Hydroxide) modern day soaps usually contain certain chemicals as foaming agents. The worst of these are Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate and Ammonium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate. Both of these ingredients are used in this product. I believe the labeling needs to be more specific in telling the public what exactly “soap-free” means. This is by no means a ‘natural’ product, in contrast several brands of ‘soap’ now use all natural products with no nasty chemicals.

For those with sensitive skin please be wary of false advertising! This product would also be very bad for babies and young children as their skin is extra sensitive to harmful chemicals.

Purchased in June 2019.

Rope taken away from shower/hair shampoo

published

I agree with other patrons of your products! why, why, why, take away a fantastic product! It was so easy to use the upside bottle hanging on a rope on the shower head! I think your design department needs to listen to customers. On the upside, if there is one, I suppose I'm helping the environment by decanting hair/body shampoo in the larger size 1 litre. to my old container. I'm left feeling very flat, disappointed and puzzled. Your product was the only one on supermarket shelves and now it has gone....

Carcinogenic properties

published

Any so called health product should not include SLS. So peeved when I finally realised my psoriasis inflammation was because of this. Thought I was buying a good product but reading the labels closely its full of nasties. Sorry but you lost me as a customer .Rating should be minus as you endorse "healthy" as meaning your ingredients. But just say with calendula and chamomile. Think we are all stupid?

Body Wash on a rope

published

I am disabled & the body wash in a bottle with a rope was ideal for me & helped me to independently wash myself without my carer having to do the washing.

Disappointing since taking the rope away

published

Why change a good thing. Please bring back your previous 'hanging' type . How much room does one have in the shower.? What with shampoo and other necessities all taking up room. When using pump types weight is challenging to shelves.

Best product

published

This is the best product I have found but finding it very hard to get her in Queensland Australia I live on the Sunshine coast and can not find it in the shops , I need to find it desperately as my skin is beginning to suffer and as I can not use anything perfumed this is my ideal product with the Aloe Vera in it .

Best body wash ever

published

Without a doubt the best body wash I've ever used. Lovely subtle fragrance, fantastic lather and so gentle on my sensitive skin. Skin feels so smooth and soft after using it. I absolutely love it!

beautiful product

published

A lovely gentle product which doesn't dry the skin with a very subtle fragrance. By far the best that I have ever tried & that has been many. The price is very reasonable too.

Love!

published

Love this body wash, I have tried all other washes for sensitive skin and this is by far the best - the problem, its hard to find. I used to buy in Priceline and now they don't stock. I now buy in Woolworths but they just have 1 product, when you go on the Health Basics website in NZ, they have an amazing range, it would be great if in Australia we could get access to the entire range

Hi, if its a pump one, you will need to turn the top nozzle to the left until the nozzle pops up and then you should be able to push down a couple of times before the cream comes out.
