Botanicals Natural Organic Skincareaim to make a range of personal care products which are as close to nature as possible. The company was founded by Wendy Stirling in 2004 after her daughter had an allergic reaction to a shampoo that sounded natural but actually contained SLS, SLES and parabens.
All of Botanicals' products and the ingredients they use are vegan and cruelty free, and they are also endorsed by Naturewatch Foundation.
Botanicals are certified organic by the Soil Association, and are
free from artificial colours, fragrances and preservatives. Their products come in minimal yet elegant packaging that is
recyclable. All the ingredients they use are fully biodegradable and are
derived from sustainable sources.
The product is a gentle exfoliating cleanser that contains crushed rosehip kernels to brighten dull and dehydrated skin and restore moisture balance. It is suitable for normal, dry and mature skin types and retails at £24 for a 60g jar.
The polish does not contain water and instead uses a base of several plant oils and shea butter. This means that not only does the product go a long way, but it feels really luxurious on the skin. I really love the texture of this product: it melts beautifully into the skin and feels heavenly as you massage it into your face. The rosehip kernels gently buff away dead skin cells and help to bring a glow to the face without scrubbing at your skin.
I also love the delicate, calming smell of this product. My skin felt really soft and smooth after using the polish and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a gentle, natural exfoliating product.
