Dettol body wash deep cleanses and protects against everyday germs, while its pH-balanced formula moisturises your skin. Stay Moisturised. Stay Heathy. For the best lather, place a small amount of body wash onto a shower puff or your palm, and massage onto body then rinse with water. Our brand first started in hospitals 80 years ago, where Dettol Antiseptic Liquid was first used for the cleaning and disinfection of skin during surgical procedures. As a trusted brand by doctors, Dettol was also used to protect mothers from illness after childbirth.
