Bare Naturals Pomegranate & Pink Grapefruit Soap – 100g (£3.65)
I chatted to the co-founder and creator of barenaturals whilst at the Natural and Organic Show in London, earlier this year. A young, small British company, hand making products in the UK using only natural ingredients and Vegan Society registered. This company has a great ethos and integrity and their display of products and ingredients used echo everything this blog is all about.
This bar of pomegranate and pink grapefruit soap being my first review from their range.
It is an olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil (from sustainable sources) based soap. Mixed with pomegranate, pink grapefruit and patchouli essential oils. Finally in the ingredients list we see natural source Vitamin E.
The bar has a natural subtle fresh fruity aroma that lathers up easily thanks to the mix of the three base oils. It leaves the skin feeling clean and comfortable, not tight and stripped. The delicate smell quickly disperses leaving you feeling and smelling clean. The ingredients were non-irritating and a pleasure to use.
As with all the natural soaps reviewed on Del Brown Approved, this soap isn’t just designed to be used to wash your hands. It is made for cleansing the entire body. If you suffer from skin irritation on the body then maybe you should start by re-thinking what you’re using to wash your skin with.
The quality of the ingredients found in these bars are comparable with some of the best body washes and shower gels I have reviewed. My ingredient purist friends among you may even go as far as to say the ingredients in this bar BEAT the ingredients found to formulate most shower gels and body washes.
