It is very rare I get actual ‘me time’ these days, since the children arrived pampering myself has had to take a back step and showering is down in less than 5 minutes with the door open and a child trying to chat to me, pass me things or scream at each other – it’s hardly relaxing. That also includes washing my hair.
The Danish beauty pioneer Urtekram recently launched a new range of organic coconut scented body care products and I have been able to try out the shower gel and body lotion for the past few weeks.
With summer approaching I have been dreaming of a tropical paradise, of course that won’t be happening and the heat wave of the tropics may not arrive however I can sip Malibu and smell of coconuts and pretend.
The new coconut shower gel contains organic coconut nectar and diglycerin which helps to naturally cleanse and moisturise. It comes in a pump dispenser which is rather handy for using in the shower when your hands are wet and of course, means it goes a lot further as you can control the amount you use. The fragrance is very subtle so you won’t walk around all day smelling like a cocktail from a beach bar but you will notice the coconut fragrance. After using for a few weeks my skin has been left feeling smooth and refreshed and teamed with the new body lotion which contains organic virgin coconut oil and hyaluronic acid my dry skin has disappeared. The body lotion is non sticky and absorbs easily, you only need a little which is why it also comes in a handy pump dispenser.
The new Coconut range also includes a shampoo and conditioner and like all of Urtekram previous products, these have achieved the Ecocert COSMOS Organic Standard which is the new gold standard governing the content and the methods approved for the manufacture of organic ingredients.
Founded in 1972, Urtekram is renowned for creating plant-based products which are wholesome and natural. The new range of hair care and body care products are all hypoallergenic and Vegan Society approved, and free from parabens, synthetic ingredients and artificial colours.
With prices starting from £1.75, Urtekam skin and body preparations are available from Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic and independent health and beauty retailers nationwide. For further information please visit www.urtekram.com or www.healthyfoodbrands.co.uk
