SOAP FREE CLEANSING BAR
Soap has been with us through the ages as our all-purpose cleaner. Today it is still the most popular cleanser. Over the years we have learned that soap and skin are actually at opposite ranges of the PH Scale.
Soap is very drying and alkaline. Soap is a mixture of fatty acids such as tallow and alkaline material such as caustic soda, often called lye or sodium hydroxide and this harsh alkali base affects the skin’s natural acid coating (termed its natural acid mantle) every time the skin is washed.
Soap can actually shift the skin’s normal acid balance to the alkaline side. When that happens, the acid mantle disappears. Many scientists believe that the acid mantle plays a significant role in maintaining the health of the skin and that it Is a natural mechanism to protect against bacterial infection and dryness. Shaklee developed the Meadow Blend Soap-Free Cleansing Bar (3.5 oz) to work with the skin’s natural acid balance, not against it. It is PH balanced and non-alkaline. The Meadow Blend Bar is perfect for all-family members to use for hand and as a body bar.
Just to compare it to two of the leading soap bars, Ivory, a tallow-based soap, and Neutrogena, a glycerin soap, are both high in drying alkali with PH ranges of 9.0 to 11.0. Whereas, Meadow Blend cleans like the best of soap bars but without soap’s lingering effects. It contains NO Lye or Tallow. Instead, it has mild cleansing agents and such ingredients as oatmeal, vitamin E, and wheat germ oil.
Meadow blend, with a PH-balanced formula, helps maintain the natural acid balance of healthy skin. After cleansing, skin feels soft, smooth, and conditioned, not rough or dry. It’s a soap-free difference you can really feel.
The bar’s special pillow shape not only fits comfortably in the hand, but helps Meadow Blend last longer in the soap dish, too—longer than many leading soap bars.
The whole family will enjoy the way Meadow Blend leaves the skin feeling smooth. And they’ll like the clean, fresh Meadow Blend scent of orange, lemon, and lavender. It’s gentle on the skin.
The skin’s acid mantle helps maintain the health of the skin by warding off bacterial infection and dryness.
Meadow Blend lathers generously, rinses off easily in hard or soft water. There’s no drying alkaline film, no residue to irritate sensitive skin.
The human body is vulnerable to attack by bacteria. Hygiene – bathing, cleaning and sanitation – is our protection. Billions of bacteria, invisible to the eye, live on the skin’s surface. Most are harmless, but some bacteria, called pathogens, can cause disease if they enter the body. Cleansers, dissolve and remove cellular debris and secretions from oil and sweat glands from skin as well as environmental dirt.
I’ve been a Shaklee user and distributor for over 15 years — and —- it wasn’t until 3 years ago that I decided to try this product and I am hooked! I absolutely LOVE it. As a child I had some challenging issues with my sensitive skin. So I have no idea why it took me so long to find this product! Its gentle and creamy. The perfect cleansing bar! (Maria B)
I have used Meadow Blend ever since I can remember. This is a great soap for any skin type but especially for sensitive skin. I love the fact that it doesn’t leave a bunch of soap slime in my shower like most other soaps. (John H)
