I'd say B.S. Files, or Signs of the Decrepitude of American Civilization Files.

Maybe you should try this: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/magazine/my-no-soap-no-shampoo-bacteria-rich-hygiene-experiment.html

These types of shower gel damage the water supply because they contain tiny non-biodegradable plastic pellets which aren't easy to filter out. That's from a recent news story in the UK. Same deal for certain toothpastes, washing powders etc. Anyway, it is bull, but that's marketing for you.

Doesn't the abrasive pumas in traditional Lava soap serve the same purpose as this body wash crap, and cost less? Wait, do they still sell Lava?

Oh, and for any English professors among us, I think it's spelled pumice----my bad.

Ulysses - It looks like some states in the U.S. are writing legislation to ban products containing these so-called microbeads.

Angelo - That was a funny misspelling. Yes, there are no sharp-toothed cougars or mountain lions in Lava soap. That could really spoil someone's day.

California is about to vote on banning microbeads.

Gary: I think I spelled it Pumus and auto correct turned it into a big cat.
