The natural body wash is formulated as a nourishing cream instead of being a gel. The product sometimes settles, so they recommend before application to give the bottle a good shake. The plant based formula is formulated without sulfates, detergents, artificial fragrances, dyes, and chemical preservatives. The no lather cream had a citrus-y scent with a hint of ginger. Personally, I like my showergel to provide copious amount of lather or at least provide some hydration to my skin.
