Sea to Summit Wilderness Wash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Dirty face? Dirty Pots? Dirty clothes? “Backpacking-greasy” hair? A little bit goes a long way with this biodegradable wash. Works well and would do well for hiking or air travel. This is my first wilderness wash that I’ve ever owned, so I have no comparison other than that normal daily washes (i.e. dish soap, body wash, shampoo). At 3 fl. oz. it’s compact, about the size of a deck of cards, both in height, width, and depth. I do not have an electronic scale, so I can’t attest for its… Full review

Action Wipes Body Wipes

rated 5 of 5 stars Pre-moistened, all natural body wipes created specifically for when you don't have the time or facilities to bathe or shower. The proprietary wipe potion made with tea tree and eucalyptus, creates mild suds that don't require rinsing and are quick to dry — leaving your skin clean and refreshed, not sticky. These large (9"x10") body wipes are great for cleaning off dirt, sweat, odor, minor cuts, scrapes and help to remove poison oak and poison ivy oils too! Great for hiking, camping, backpacking,… Full review

Paper Shower Original Body Wipes

rated 5 of 5 stars A body wipe system that combines dry and wet towelettes. Big and wet enough for a complete body wash. Perfect for camping and hiking. Paper Shower is a unique body wipe system that combines a wet disposable washcloth with a dry towel. The washcloth is big and wet enough to enable you to wash your entire body and while the concept of the dry towel is a little strange it is great to completely dry yourself off and absorb any extra moisture. The cleansing solution in the washcloth is low in alcohol… Full review

Outdoor Rx Camp Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars Multi-purpose soap that works. So, how does one go about writing a review on soap? Well, when you consider that every piece of gear you toss into your pack needs to serve a purpose I guess it's as valid as anything. What I like most about the Outdoor Rx soap is the bang for the buck. Like that old Brylcream commercial that said, "A little dab will do you" this soap lasts a long time as it's concentrated so you only need a touch to get the suds working. It's obviously biodegradable to make stream… Full review

Dr. Bronner Tea Tree Liquid Soap

rated 5 of 5 stars I saw the other guy's review, and I thought I'd add my 2 cents. I love Dr. Bronner's.  I use it at home as well as the field when backpacking.  They also offer bar soaps that don't leak in your pack, but I prefer the liquid. I'm also a mechanic.  My hands get greasy.   Nasty greasy.   Dr. Bronner's Liquid Peppermint soap works the best of any product I've found, including stuff like GoJo that was made for removing automotive grease.  The other 'natural' product that works well is Ivory liquid,… Full review

Sea to Summit Pocket Conditioning Shampoo

rated 5 of 5 stars G’Day! Baz from Sea to Summit here. We don’t normally post responses to user reviews, but we felt there were a number of points here which were worth addressing: Trek and Travel Shampoo leaves will produce less lather in cold water, and almost no lather at all in salt water. The shampoo/conditioner will still clean your hair even without lather. We’ve sold many thousands of the Trek and Travel Shampoo leaves, and have not heard of users experiencing this issue. We've posted a video on the… Full review

Dr. Bronner Tea Tree Liquid Soap

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Organic, no nasty chemicals. Very concentrated, a small bottle lasts a long time. I have used this soap for a couple of two and three week hikes for body wash, shampoo, shaving, clothes and dishes/cookware. After trying the eucalyptus soap once as toothpaste with a less than tasty result I didn't bother trying this one. If used in a water bottle (I use my bottle for shaking pan cake batter and need to clean them) a very slight odor/taste can linger. After a few days I actually got to like it, though… Full review

Dr. Bronner Eucalyptus Liquid Soap

rated 4.5 of 5 stars First of all it is organic. No nasty chemicals added. Concentrated, a small bottle lasts a long time. I have used this as my only soap for up to five week hikes. Body wash, shampoo, shaving, clothes and dishes/cookware. Tried it once as toothpaste, after hearing a roumor it was possible, but cannot recommend it ;) It has a cooling effect that feels wonderful on sore and warm feet after a long days hike. The downside of using this scented soap for absolutely everything for weeks on end is that you… Full review

Sea to Summit Pocket Conditioning Shampoo

rated 0.5 of 5 stars What a complete waste of money. The only people who might use this product with any success have to be bald! I decided to try it out before leaving for a hike, and I'm so glad i did. There are 50 leaves on the box, and I started adding more and more of them to get even close to a lather. The first three did nothing, neither did the next two. The last two I added ended up as blobs of goop in my hear. And after digging out the last two I spilled a few drops of water into the container, so the remaining… Full review
