Best Body Wash for Tweens

Choosing Body Wash

Body wash has been growing in popularity in recent years. It’s easier to use, and sharing seems less yucky than sharing bar soaps. When you walk down the body wash aisle, you’ll see numerous possibilities, but few use only natural ingredients and provide age-appropriate packaging and appeal for tween boys. Prep U body wash hydrates and cleanses without using artificial ingredients and appeals to tween and teen males. Best of all, the price point is budget-friendly, and the product lasts around a month with suggested use.

Avoid the Following Ingredients

Body washes can be drying and harsh in addition to potentially exposing the user to chemicals. Try reading the ingredient list to see for yourself. If you can’t pronounce it, should you really expose your son’s largest organ (his skin) to it?

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, also known as SLS, creates suds in washes, but it is an irritant that could cause a breakout. Prep U’s body wash formulations are thinner because they’re plant based, but they lather and wash well.

Parabens are potentially disruptive to hormones and should be avoided.

Artificial fragrances contain tons of ingredients that you’d be astonished to see in a body wash. Prep U body wash has a citrus mint scent created from a combination of essential oils.

Prep U also refrains from using propylene glycol, phthalates, aluminum, talc, or any other artificial ingredient.

Additional Benefits to Choosing All-Natural Body Wash

  • Less soap scum on the shower walls and floor
  • Gentler on the skin and leaves the skin barrier protected
  • A little goes a long way
  • Less worry about potential harm
  • Environmentally friendlier and more sustainable

In your efforts to demonstrate the importance of hygiene and self-care to your son, add a few of Prep U’s other products to his toolbox. We offer a body scrub that promotes smooth skin and fewer breakouts (face and body); a bath soak that will ease pain from sports or fast growth without reaching for a pill bottle; a blemish stick for conveniently treating the conditions that cause breakouts; and even natural deodorant that won’t clog his pores or fail to work when it counts.

Parents often pick their battles. We have to in all reality in order to keep our sanity, but the hygiene fight is one you need to win. If he continues to be resistant, you might want to look a bit deeper. A lack of self-care can be indicative of depression or self-esteem problems.
