Natural and organic beauty is becoming more and more an interest of mine lately. I've been using a lot more natural skincare this winter, which has been working a treat, so next I thought I'd start on my bathroom essentials. Happily Green People got in touch to ask if I'd like to try some of their latest organic products and share my thoughts.
Green People's ethics are really something I admire - their ingredients are natural, Fairtrade and certified by the Soil Association, as well as their many vegan products being approved by the Vegan Society.
I tried out their new Quinoa shower gel and deodorant, which both have essential oils of ginger and orange. Ginger is not my favourite smell, which is the only negative point I have to say! If you are a ginger fan you'll love these as they have a lightly spiced and uplifting scent of fresh ginger and citrus.
The Quinoa & Calendula Shower Gel is an organic blend with aloe vera that creates a creamy lather. My back can get very dry in the winter, probably from one too many hot showers, so using a natural shower gel that will soothe my skin is exactly what I need. As it's SLS free you don't get a lot of foam, but I'm thankful that it doesn't dry out my skin. Instead it feels lightly moisturising and very smooth, a lovely treat to wake up with on a cold winter's morning.
I've been a fan of natural deodorants for a while, as I've often found anti-perspirants (that block your pores to stop you sweating) to be sticky and a bit unpleasant. This new Quinoa & Prebiotics Deodorant does a great job of keeping me feeling fresh and clean without the chemical nasties. It's completely invisible, so there are no white marks on my clothes, and because it only has natural and gentle ingredients it doesn't sting after shaving. Most importantly, it lasts all day and I'm yet to feel the need to reapply even after a yoga session.
All together I'm very pleased with Green People's new offerings and would certainly recommend them if you're looking for natural, organic beauty that's kinder to the Earth and your body.
