I've been using this stuff for months because I love that Bath and Body doesn't test on animals and has great scents. I happened to turn over my bottle of hand soap to read the label, and what do you know - gelatin


It looks like it's just the gel-type hand soap - not the foaming or moisturizing ones. Still, so disappointed...

Not to mention that Bath and Body Works stuff actually costs more than most soaps at the drug store. I don't really see that "sometimes you can't avoid gelatin" excuse working here.

Some people are just hooked on Bath and Body works, though.
Whenever I smell that store as I walk by in the mall, it brings me back to 7th grade...

Me too...I'm only a fan of a few specific scents now, but when I was in middle/high school, that store was my understanding of perfume


I checked, and it's only the gel-type soap that has gelatin. The moisturizing ones and foaming ones appear safe. I like the moisturizing ones better anyway, because they're nicer to my dry hands. They're just harder to find in the scents I want sometimes.

Still, I'm glad I noticed this. I never would have thought...the gelatin is just so unnecessary. Most other gel soaps don't have it, so why does B&B think they need it?

I believe it's just the products with those tiny moisture balls in them. I would just check the label. My Mom bought a ton with the gelatin balls, but I still used them. I have a ton of my own that I bought that are gelatin-free. I figure that once you have it, you might as well use it. *shrugs*

Yes and I read the label didn't understand it LOL and they do have small glitter type beads in them however, not going to worry going to use them up LOL.

I know, so many ingredients
Literally, you're just looking for the word "gelatin." It's not in there disguised as some long word. I LOVE my Bath and Body Works products. The Midnight Pomegranate is my favorite. Hold up, going to post 2 photos...

The Midnight Pomegranate is my signature scent
I have difficulty most mornings choosing between that and my big-girl perfume.

I've been checking other people's gel hand soap, and hardly any has gelatin. Why, Bath and Body? Why?

That said, I'm going to finish what I have and then switch over to their moisturizing hand soaps instead.

Same here but still is actually. I love their stuff.

Even the cheap gel soaps at dollar stores is gelatin free (the ones I've seen anyways).

Their stuff is crazy expensive at the regular price. $10 for a bottle of lotion? Insane. Like Heather, I wait till their huge sale when lotions are $3 and soaps are $1 something.

Wow that's a big collection danakscully! I have a lot because we buy from the outlets in bulk when they have sales, but they're all the food ones that are now discontinued like cinnamon roll, peppermint, chocolate, iced tea, gumpdrops, cherry pie, pumpkin pie, and vanilla ice cream so I haven't tried any of those ones yet but the apple one looks like it would smell good.


Anyways, that's crazy that they have gelatin! Luckily I only have the foam ones, except for the body wash, which mine doesn't have gelatin. I love Bath and Body Works and Victoria's Secret and Pink and all the other companies they own. The Bath and Body Works usually have the most outlets, though, and the best specials. They always send coupons, too. When there's good sales at the outlets you can stock up on the big 3-in-1 (shampoo, bubble bath, body wash) bottles for about 1.50. The lotions are pretty cheap, too, though I don't remember how much. I think the last special was a mix and match, if you bought a certain amount of perfumes, lotions, or body wash for a discounted price, then they'd also give you one free.

I wait for the sales too. Their bottles aren't even that big, so the full prices are just outrageous.

I also went through all my B&B lotions, sprays, shower gels in search of any other sign of gelatin. Thankfully, I haven't found any. Seems like it's just the soap.

I've never been to a B&B outlet, disneyjessica, but you've inspired me to look for one!
