marine naturals refreshing body wash


the most planet friendly thing you can do in the nude.

dirty has its time and place. we’ll agree to that. what we can’t agree to is showering in suds full of dirty ingredients. so get ready to strip down and soap up with something truly clean. like this refreshing body wash made with purifying sea salt and aloe. the biodegradable, 97% natural formula has no parabens, phthalates or EDTA and leaves your skin soft and pure. that’s good, clean fun in the tub. as far as your soap’s concerned anyway.

    refresh mint

    what’s more refreshing than mint? we’re drawing a blank. which is precisely why we called this lively blend of spearmint, peppermint, bergamot + floral tea 'refresh mint.' because who doesn’t like a play on words? no one we know.


    sea minerals

    it seems like every time fresh + clean get together, something wonderful happens. uniting in this watery blend of bergamot, lemon + rosemary, with crisp marine notes is no exception. it’s like a mini-vacation to the seaside, minus the sand in your crevices.


    water flower

    if you don’t have an exotic water garden to sneak away to—don’t feel bad, we don’t either—the lush fragrance of water flower may help fill the void. let calm wash over you as you breathe in the crisp foliage, zesty citrus + water lilies.

all of method's ingredients are comprehensively assessed by a leading research firm to ensure their safety for people and the environment. you can find a list of all our ingredients here. please contact us, if you would like more detail on an ingredient or visit MBDC to read more about the assessment process.

I love it and miss it.

It’s great finding a body wash that is all natural while catering to a man’s need. The sea mineral and mint smells are fantastic. The only problem is that it no longer exists! I am with the other’s Method. Bring Marine Naturals back!

Why can't I find this anywhere??

I’d been using the Pure Naked body washes for a while when I happened to stumble across one lonely bottle of the Marine Naturals Water flower body wash tucked on the back of a shelf on some clearance aisle. I fell in LOVE with the scent and the overall clean feeling it left me with. I searched everywhere for more and cannot find it. Was it discontinued? Why?? Please, PLEASE, bring it back!!!

RefreshMint is the best

I love love love this body wash. It smells so good but it is very difficult to find in stores. I bought several bottles and was down to my last one when my 3 year old son poured half of it down the drain when I wasn’t looking. I was so sad :( Today I ordered more so now I’m happy again :)

The best you make

I swear by this stuff. The scent is pleasing but doesn’t overwhelm or linger. It leaves me feeling clean and refreshed without a lot of stuff I don’t need. Also, the Pure Naked stuff that came out recently really irritates my skin; this stuff never does.

Olive Oil Body Wash - due for a comeback!

I’ve used both the marine naturals and the olive oil body wash and the olive oil provided a far superior experience. The olive oil left my skin smoother, had a much better subtle scent, and felt like a natural, healthy luxury. The marine naturals did not keep my skin as moisturized and felt like I was lathering up with a load of man-made chemicals. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OLIVE OIL!!!!!!

Sea Minerals Body Wash - Very Refreshing

The Sea Minerals Body Wash is probably either 1 or 2 on my top five list of Method favorites. I’ve been using it daily for years now. I have very sensitive skin and this is one of the few body washes I can use that doesn’t irritate. It also doesn’t dry my skin like other brands. Also, I’ve tried all the different scents. While they all smell wonderful, I keep returning to Sea Minerals. I find it to be the most refreshing of the scents offered. Now I’m hoping you’ll come out with shampoo and conditioners for adults. Thanks Method!

I use the Sea Minerals fragrance, and I feel SO CLEAN after I use this! It’s affordable and lasts long. I love it! One of my favorite body washes by far

Purchased the Water Flower

Seriously. By far the greatest wash I have ever used EVER. It smells like fresh leaves, the ocean, cucumbers, and flowers. Usually, floral body washes have headache-inducing fragrance that’s way too strong. But this has every smell I love in one bottle. And my skin is sooo soft. Definitely buying in the future! :)

I'm in love!

Every time I shower with the mint body wash I fall in love again. It makes my skin feel super soft and it smells great. The bonus is that there are no nasty chemicals inside the beautiful bottle. I am on a new mission to look closely at ingredients and eliminate the nasty ones from my home. Method is a great place to start. Keep the great products coming!!

I love this body wash!! It doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry and the scent is perfect! I use the Mint in the summer and Water Flower in the winter. I use this on my 5 year old who has very dry skin and works woders for him.

i miss the olive leaf body wash

i stocked up a while back when it was on sale and now it is gone :( I have sensitive skin and normally do not use body wash but the olive leaf wash was awesome and did not bother my skin at all. PLEASE bring it back!

The old stuff was much better

I miss your old body wash, it kept my skin nice and smooth and smelled great, not too overpowering and it lasted forever. Citron Leaf and olive leaf were both amazing body washes, I hope you bring them back!.

severe downgrade from previous body washes

This body wash is thin and leaves skin dry. It also doesn’t last as long as the previous Method body wash, which was far superior in leaving skin moist.

Bring the old body wash (Olive scented) back and we’ll start buying Method body wash products again!

Simply Wonderful!! Feels like you walked into a Flower Shop!

I was wandering around my city 1 day (time square) and went into a big name drugstore. I made sure to take the time to smell all 3 of Method’s Body Washes. I thought the Water Flowers smelled THE BEST. So when I started to take a shower I was like, “OH MY GOD THIS IS THE MOST HEAVENLY BODY WASH ON THE PLANET!” (no lie). It’s like a potent dose of floral aromatherapy. Specifically, the smell is more like a rose flower shop. It lathers very well and it was very long lasting (u don’t need a lot). My boyfriend made a funny face when I got out the shower and I was like “what?” He was like “what’s that smell, it’s weird?” I was like “what does it smell like?”, he’s like “u smell like a flower shop”. I said, “i know, i’m supposed to”, it took sum time for him 2 adjust but after he got used to it he loved it cuz it made me smell girly. That goes to show u the differences of people’s senses. I’m sad I can’t remember which store I bought it from but I can always buy it online. I LOVE this product and u will too!

P.S.-I’m a little concerned about the ingredient “lauramidopropyl betaine”. It has in fact been linked to toxicity of 1 or more of our organs through animal studies.

It doesn't get better than this!

I absolutely love the Sea Minerals scent. I grew up in Miami, FL and swam in the ocean every chance I got. This fragrance is light, clean and fresh; like a sunny day at the beach. The formula is also really great because even in very hard water, it does not take a lot to lather luxuriously. That means it lasts a lot longer than other body washes; so it is truly economical. It leaves my skin squeaky-clean, but silky soft. Wow! Really the best of everything.

Best bodywash EVER! I am addicted!

I am a total product junkie being a cosmetologist and this is by far the best body wash I have ever used! I have super sensitive skin and most products make me break out. Refresh Mint smells great, feels great, and make me feel super clean and soft without irritating my skin! I added a few drops of pure peppermint oil to my Refresh Mint bodywash and not only do I smell good, but I get a tingly clean feeling! I cant believe that I can get such a great body wash at such a good price! I would definitely put this product up against Aveda Rosemary Mint products anytime!

So fresh and so clean

I originally got my boyfriend the refresh mint body wash because it was less expensive than the others, it wasn’t full of nasty chemicals like many other brands are, and i liked the smell. Now I find myself stealing it in the shower! :O It smells SO good, and it doesn’t dry out his skin. I tend to prefer creamier washes, but this body wash is really great for that good, fresh, clean feeling.

Overwhelmingly scented

I actually woke up and wondered “WHAT is that SMELL?!” when my fiance took a shower (two rooms away!) for the first time with the blue one, Sea Minerals. It was so unbelievably strong! He even said it was the least “smelly” of the three that he smelled in the store.

We had to chuck it, it was sooooooo strong!

I guess I'll be the first man to review this

Very good body wash. This can be used for men just as well as women. It smells nice. I used Axe Body wash for a while. Some of their products I’m allergic to. So far I’ve been a-ok on that front and truthfully I think I feel a bit healthier using this. I’m pleased with this switch.

I am obsessed with all the body washes… finally something that smells yummy … good for the planet… good for ME & my sensitive skin… lathers amazingly…affordable and is so pretty looking… couldn’t be happier. Only thing I would love is for more scents to come out, because I love having a variety. =)

easy to find too

I was doing regular shopping in Superstore and there was this new product from Method I had never seen before. I am using it right now and I love the light scent and the colour fits perfectly into my bathroom decor. What more could I want, low cost and great look that cleans.

Refresh Mint Rocks My World!

I can’t even count the number of body washes I tried before I found Method Refresh Mint Body Wash, but I’m just so happy I finally found a body wash that combines a great scent with a product that actually makes me feel clean! Anything I found that smelled good, always contained extra butters or moisturizers that left my skin feeling slimy and just not clean. And then anything I found that actually made me feel clean, also made me smell like a teenage boy! It was terribly frustrating. But this product is perfect – I wouldn’t change a thing. I look forward to showering every day and stock up whenever I can so I never run out! I even put it on my Christmas list this year!
