"I don't own a TV and don't do much shopping in drugstores or malls, which helps to avoid the marketing," she adds, "but if I do see a commercial with those beautiful airbrushed models, I have to make sure I stop and remind myself of the animals that product was tested on, the chemicals that will go down my drain into the water and the toxins that will go into my body and no, I don't want that."

The soap is an all natural, mild cleansing liquid that serves the following purposes: Shampoo, body wash, facial cleanser, shaving cream and even toothpaste.

"Those ads are just selling insecurity," Ms. Suzanne says. "You can't possibly need a different soap for every part of your body. I mean, I personally just don't have that much geography there's not that much space between my face and my armpits.
