With La Fresh, Just Add Water


What do the following ingredients mean to you?

Water, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl, Betaine, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium, Lauroyl Sarcosinate, DMDM Hydantoin, Polyquaternium-7, Methylparaben.

Probably not much but they are the list of ingredients in LA FRESH’s Facial Cleansing Cloths. What’s unique about these?


These are packaged up and are sold dry. As in, you need to add water to activate the ingredients. Since I learn about ingredients as I go, I did a little detailed research and below is each in a nutshell.

  • Disodium EDTA (preservative)
  • Propylene Glycol (skin conditioner)
  • Citric Acid (cleanser and toner)
  • Glycerin (helps to hold moisture onto the skin. Helps prevent dryness)
  • Cocamidopropyl (detergent)
  • Betaine (foaming agent)
  • Hexylene Glycol (viscosity controlling agent)
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate or SLS (lathering agent)
  • Decyl Glucoside (mild cleanser)
  • Lauroyl Sarcosinate (foaming agent)
  • DMDM Hydantoin (preservative)
  • Polyquaternium-7 (combo of glycerin and water found in liquid soap)
  • Methylparaben (an antimicrobial, anti-irritant, preservative)

So from looking at the list, you can’t say these wipes are all natural or vegan but they are biodegradable.

I am totally surprised at the number of different preservatives in them though but I guess something has to keep them in their original state. I think I will be using these mostly for when I travel. How convenient! Don’t ever have to worry about spillage in the bag.

And while they don’t remove eye makeup, these are great to clean around the eyes. Zero stinging!

Actually these while not being all natural could be considered Vegan depending on how they are produced. Vegan simply means there are no animal by products.


Hi Jayme, yes you are correct. funny that I said exactly what you wrote in yesterday's feature on White Sands about the products being Vegan.


I knew i had only recently only recently learned that vegan simply ment no animal byproducts. but i couldnt think of where. But it must of been the blog you wrote on the shampoo!

I love that a ton of the brands you talk about are ones i have never heard of before!


haha, Jayme!! could be. and I'm so glad you love a lot of the brands on the site. that means a lot to me!
