While in Key West, Florida, we got into a discussion about people who live on their boats in salt water and how they shower. I was surprised to learn that a harsh dish detergent was one of very few cleansers that lathered in salt water and then of course needed rinsing in the boater's fresh water supply. This was their personal hygiene product. The irony of this situation was the fact that boaters were surrounded by water and couldn't bathe in it with any degree of comfort. Dishsoap was made to degrease pots and pans - not skin.
I couldn't get this problem off my mind. We are skin care specialists by profession since 1990 and I felt we could come up with a solution.
Working with a wonderful chemist who understands our fussiness, I gave her a formulation that I felt would work; she followed my specifications, made me my first samples and we were ready for testing.
After sending samples to Key West for salt water testing, the results were outstanding! Imagine being able to throw a clean bucket overboard and bringing salt water on board instead of using fresh water supply. Using that pail of salt water to wash your hair and body, along with rinsing with the unlimited supply of salt water around you. No freshwater rinsing. No itching, no salty residue, no dry skin, no baby oil. It was great!
