Go green! Start using natural and organic products... (Though the term 'natural' is indeed tricky... Look for 'certified' organic products.)

It looks like you may have used deodorant as well as shaving cream. I know I often have a slight smell (I hope it's slight!) because the natural stuff I use doesn't quite cut it, but I prefer that to rubbing all sorts of nasty chemicals under my arms every morning...

Here's a start to categorizing them...

Soap:
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Xylenesulfonate

To make you think the product is natural:Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

Keep it from growing mold or bacteria in the container:
Butylparaben
Ethylparaben
Isobutylparaben
Methylchloroisothiazolinone
Methylisothiazolinone
Methylparaben

Emulsufying agents:
Cetearyl Alcohol
Cetyl Alcohol

Keep your hair from knotting when you comb it.
(works Like little tiny balls rolling across a counter - reduces friction when you comb)
Dimethicone

Organic might be useful, but somewhat futile. In terms of chemical exposure, the stuff over here is a little more scary.

Dear Mr Brad Choate,
As i am sure you are aware, the internet has blown up over this movabletype 3.0 licensing thing. Since you are developer of neat mt hacks, I was curious what your response was to this whole mess. also, tx for mt regex, i've been using it quite nicely for a while. (it replaces names of all my friends with their color + href on my site.)
