News Desk, News Nation 360 : Much has been said about the comparative benefits of a bar of soap over body washes and vice-versa. The comparison for most of these arguments is on the basis of properties – affordability, storage and portability, enhancement of the bathing ritual overall. But to boil down to the brass tacks, the very essentials of decision making, one tends to dwell on practical benefits and completely ignore the experiential benefits like enjoyability of the bath. Here are 5 points of practical consideration that can help one to make a decision like Price : There is a general pre-disposition prevalent that body washes are more expensive than soap. The cost per wash for a Vivel body wash (400 ML at Rs. 99) is only INR 1.2/-. All body washes aren’t expensive! Even a coin size amount is enough for a great bathing experience with added lather and moisturising. Little goes a long way with Vivel Body wash – so it is that easy, Time – Bathing doesn’t have to involve a lot of water and a lot of time for it to be effective. There’s a myth that everyone often believes in - that body washes take longer than soap to rinse off and hence increase the duration of time spent in the bathroom. Especially, when one is running late for a

meeting, it is often believed that soap baths will be quicker and hence one avoids using a body wash. However, Vivel body wash washes off easily while leaving the skin refreshed and hydrated even when one is running late especially during mornings, Lather – The most satisfying thing about a bath is that gives the feeling of being squeaky clean and refreshed. Body washes are known to moisturize better and leave the skin looking plump without drying it. A coin-sized amount of Vivel body wash creates enough lather for an enjoyable bathing experience. And it lasts for up to 80 washes with the 400 ml refill pack, Storage and Portability – Another important practical consideration. While soap bars need additional paraphernalia like a soap dish to store hygienically, body washes are self-contained units. They are easy to share and carry while travelling even when the product is ‘in-use' and Style of bathing - Another popular belief is that body washes should only be used under showers and are not fun or effective with bucket baths. The majority of Indians take a bath with a bucket and Vivel works well with those. Be it a bucket bath where one doesn’t want to wet hair or a leisurely shower to recharge self at day end, Vivel Body wash works for both kinds. Perhaps these reasons change the stance on this age-old debate and make one to switch.
