I don't usually bring my own toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc.) when travelling and staying at reputable properties. Something I look for before using a hotel's soap and shampoo is the country of origin. Although products made in China have come a long way, I'm reluctant to use such products if they can be absorbed by the body. I noticed during my last stays at JW Marriott and AC Hotel that both used toiletries that were made in China while other Marriott properties I frequent offer U.S.-made toiletries.
Does anyone else look at the country of origin on hotel toiletries? Do you bring your own soap and shampoo when travelling or do you use the hotel's? I'm interested in your opinions and suggestions.
