Dove Exfoliating Soap Bars - TNA Specific
Tonight, sitting watching Without a Trace and I saw a commercial for Dove Exfoliating Soap Bars. I'm not sure if it was exclusively American specific or if the product is available in Canada as well or not.
At any rate, part of the commercial showed crushed walnuts. Now, from the pic of the bar of soap, I don't think you'll actually get chips of walnut shells in the soap to exfoliate your skin.
I do believe there was the mention of the word *extract*. To me, that has always meant, when it comes to cosmetics, in particular (and with regard to PA/TNA), the oil of the thing (i.e., the walnut in this case) but could *extract* not mean part of the shell somehow crushed up and incorporated into the bar of soap?
Anyway, for me, just not pleased. Yes, tons of other bars of soaps out there to use and use safely but this prolifiance of peanuts/tree nuts in EVERYTHING continues to boggle my mind (especially the one e-mail I got from Oil of Olay and I guess why is peanut oil considered a good scent diffuser? - the whole Downey scenario).
