When it comes to organic beauty, that is my bag. My skills in beauty are pretty much nil. Ombre lips? No idea. Contouring? Not a clue. But throw me into the beauty aisles at Planet Organic or Infinity Foods and I am as happy as Larry. I love the smells,the packaging and feel of the shampoos and creams that adorn the shelves.
We don’t think enough about what goes onto our skin and what is in the products we use. The more natural and organic the product usually the more expensive the product is which can usually put us off. However, there are certain products which I think are definitely worth investing in and this is one of them.
I received Dr Bronner’s Almond Liquid Soap for my birthday after much deliberation about the price. It supposedly has 18 in 1 uses, everything from washing your hair to using as toothpaste to helping with congestion. I kid you not. I haven’t tried everything, but after using it as a face and body wash I am already converted. You only need a few drops, as they leave the glycerine ( a great moisturiser) in meaning the formula is really concentrated. This means it is much better value than I initially thought. The soaps leave you feeling cleansed, moisturised and smell incredible! As a greasy face sufferer I love it as a face wash.
If that wasn’t enough, their packaging is from 100% recycled materials, they dedicate company profits to local and global causes and they use traceable fair trade and organic ingredients. They are also a certified B-Corp.
I have listed the ingredients below:
Water, Organic Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide**, Organic Palm Kernel Oil*, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Natural Almond Fragrance, Citric Acid, Tocopherol
*CERTIFIED FAIR TRADE INGREDIENTS
** None remains after saponifying oils into soap & glycerin.
Dr Bronners Liquid Soap costs approximately £8- £10 for 472 ml bottle and is available in Planet Organic, Amazon and Cult Beauty.
