- Black Pepper & Chilli shower gel – safe to use on yer bits?!
So having ran out of shower gel the other day, and being a big fan of anything Original Source (damn you mountain mayhem!), I did my usual ‘pick a new one based on it’s pretty colour without actually looking what’s in it’ trick. Cue getting in the shower this morning, grabbing the bottle and realising it was black pepper & chilli ‘flavour.’ Being somewhat of a fan of keeping my crown jewels intact and not feeling like they’re being set alight with napalm, I decided to do a bit more research first.
Has anyone else used this stuff? Did it precede to give your tackle a delightful tingling feeling that put a spring in your step for the rest of your day? Or did it leave you curled in the foetal position in the bottom of your bath, attempting to crawl inside the cold tap and crying for your mother, much as described by that amazon review?Posted 5 years agoRealManMember
I faced the same situation as you, bought it without looking, was in the shower when I noticed. I just MTFU’d and applied generous quantities everywhere.
It’s pretty good.
However the bottle does say “for men” – I’ve never seen that on any of the other OS shower gels, so I’d hesitate before applying it to your vagina.Posted 5 years ago
I’d hesitate before applying it to your vagina.
Me too. Mainly because that would involve me discovering I have a vagina, and am in fact a hermaphrodite, which is not the kind of stress I need at half seven in the morning before I’ve had a cup of tea.
Will MTFU and report back tomorrow!Posted 5 years agoglobaltiMember
The perfume is used in the shower gel at about 0.5% i.e. 500 gms per 100 kilo batch of the gel. There might be some pepper oil or capsicum oleoresin in the perfume but they would be at dosages of 0.1% in the actual perfume so almost nothing at all in the gel. There might be some kind of warming ingredient in the gel (check the ingredients panel) but there’s no way a manufacturer like PZ would be allowed to use anything dodgy at a dosage that could cause harm, the whole industry is incredibly tightly regulated.
More likely is that the smell of the perfume and the user’s imagination are doing the trick. We are all in the business of selling fantasy, after all.Posted 5 years ago
