kitchen gel hand wash
for freshly scented kitchen hands
garlic, onions + fish smell delicious in a dish. but on your hands? not so much. infused with citrus extracts, this naturally derived, non-drying gel hand wash eliminates stubborn smells and leaves hands feeling soft + clean, even after multiple washes.
imagine a quaint Italian village tucked away on a sun-drenched hillside of Tuscany. now imagine that you’ve won a dream vacation in said village. you will spend your days lounging in splendor with the crisp scent of freshly cut basil wafting in the breeze. to return to this fantasy, simply close your eyes and wash up.
