I broke my no ban yesterday and headed to Bath & Body Works to buy candles. Thankfully I walked out with only two! While there the sales rep told me they are reformulating their hand soap with coconut oil. She got a little busy so I was unable to question her further about this but I headed online and right now some of the bottles are reading “with Vitamin A, B, and E”. I’m unsure if the hand soap coconut oil formulation is a one off or if they’ll be keeping it in all their permanent and newest releases. A few years ago they dropped the antibacterial from their line of hand soaps which was likely in compliance with the FDA ruling.
I hoard Bath & Body Works Hand Soaps because I compulsively wash my hands. I deal with clients all day, I’m shaking hands constantly, so, sure I want to wash my hands after I’ve touched one to many sweaty palms. Can’t blame a girl right? I also hoard them because I generally like using them. I enjoy the foaming ones because they lather up nicely and they smell really great. I’ve been known to pick up a few of an LE scent if I know it is about to disappear.
Some people hate them though…
One of the biggest compliant I hear the most often about Bath & Body Works Hand Soaps is the fact they dry hands out. I honestly, never noticed this. But I was thinking maybe now with the addition of coconut oil and Vitamin E they might garner new interest for those that have drier hands and needed a more hydrating hand soap.
I haven’t seen the coconut oil hand soaps in store yet and again, I have no idea if they will reformulate the entire line to include the ingredient but one can hope so.
What do you think?
Would the addition of coconut oil make you want to give them a second chance?
Do you like the idea of a new formula?
