Method Green Tea and Aloe Soap

A month or so ago, I was at my sister's house using her handsoap when I noticed the wonderful fragrance that remained on my hands. I picked up the bottle to see what kind of soap she was using, and lo and behold, it was a Method brand Green Tea and Aloe handsoap I'd not come across before! She got hers at an Ingle's grocery store nearby, but we don't have an Ingle's here so my search was on.

Kroger, I'm happy to report, was well-stocked with this brand, and I was delighted to find a bottle. I was, of course, curious about whether it actually contains green tea, and since camellia sinensis is not on the ingredients list (but aloe vera is), I assume not.

I have e-mailed the company to ask whether camellia sinensis is an ingredient but have not heard back yet. Either way, I love the scent of this soap and am pleased with it. Have any of you used this soap? Or other Method products? If so, what have you tried and liked?

UPDATE: Got a not-very-helpful response from the company. It said this: "Unfortunately, we cannot disclose the specific ingredients that are in our fragrances because that information is confidential to the folks who supply our fragrances. If you are concerned about an allergy or possible health reaction to green tea, we would recommend you choose another fragrance or try our Free & Clear, which does not contain any fragrances." I'm not sure what to think of a company that won't tell me whether it's Green Tea product contains green tea!

Target sells Method products. I love and use all of them. Their glass cleaner is like aromatheraphy to me, it smells like mint. I just love it and it invigorates me when I clean. Also, the wood cleaner is almond scented. My son always notices when I dust his room, he loves the scent. Good luck finding the green tea soap.

Ooo, sounds delicious! I love good smelling soaps & Method has a few good ones. My friend uses one that is lavender colored. I can't remember if it was lavender, but do recall the scent lasts for a good long time. And there is one I think that is a Rosemary mint scent- something organic like that! Yum.

Legally the green tea must be on the label if it is in it. I am guessing they named it that because green tea things are selling. Sounds lovely though.
