What reviewers didn't like

However, Honest Shampoo and Body Wash has some concerns – concerns most clean shampoos have – ingredients that lack safety data and that can cause irritation or an allergic reaction. I do not recommend using the Honest Shampoo and Body Wash as a body wash, especially for babies.
