Give bacteria the backhand

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Germ-busting sanitary products are a great way to ensure you’re clean as well as protected from potentially harmful bacteria, however, some of them can be a little harsh on your skin. This is why we’re glad to see that Savlon’s created a line of skin-friendly soap (R5,95 for 100g) as well as a hand wash (R19,95) and body wash (R15,95 for 200ml).

Each product is available in five different fragrances, you’re sure to find a scent to suit, be it Soothing Herbal (a blend of thyme and eucalyptus) or Gentle (a soft, pretty blend of jasmine and rose). Personally, we’re quite taken with Energising Citrus, a zingy mix of lemon and tangerine…

To give them a sniff, keep an eye out for them on the shelves of your local supermarket.
