What’s the Difference between Shower Gels?The vast majority of shower gels will all share the 3 following main ingredients at the very top of the label ie water, SLS/sodium laureth sulphate (cleaning/foaming action), cocamidyl betaine (to reduce irritancy of the sodium laureth sulphate). If you are looking for shower gel that will get you clean with a pleasant fragrance, than there is no need to spend more than £1. As there will be very little difference between most shower gels, and because the contact time with your skin is very quick, a shower gel will not be able to deliver anti-ageing, anti-cellulite promised etc. If there is a deviation from those top 3 ingredients, than I would say its worth paying more, especially if contains a lot of botanical ingredients.
