‘All you need is me’ from True Organic of Sweden

True Organic of Sweden – All you need is me – 50ml (19.99)

I’ve been genuinely excited to bring you this one! It’s an ‘All you need is me’ cream from a company called ‘True Organic of Sweden”. As you’d expect from the title, but should never assume, this product is made in Sweden and uses certified organic ingredients.

As you can see from my photographs, when you squeeze the tube, incidentally made of GREEN PE (sugarcane derived), the cloudy yellow cream slowly starts to come out of the tiny hole in the tube. It’s at this point you discover the product is not a cream but in fact a balm. With little or no aroma to speak of, the balm melts on contact with your skin temperature and a little goes a long way.

The product is actually called ‘All you need is me’ and you quickly realise it’s actually true. It is described as being suitable for use on dry, flaky, cracked or thirsty skin.  Apply a small amount on the lips to make the most moisturising lip salve.  Unlike the paraffin based lip products, you won’t need to keep re-applying this every couple of minutes!  Also apply it last thing at night and wake up with hydrated lips.

It can be used on dry elbows, knees, heels, feet, finger nails, cuticles, tip of your nose and even your hair!  Yes brothers with beards, this means us too!  I have been melting a small amount between my fingers and combing it into my beard. Within minutes I’m left with a glossy, tamed, well groomed, healthy looking beard.  For those fortunate enough to have hair on your head, just think about how you could use it there too!

As this is a true multi-tasker, it’s even good for use on areas of red or irritated skin, minor scrapes or scratches, apply a small amount and allow the natural ingredients to soothe, calm and heal.

As this is oil based, the ingredients sink deep into the skin, moisturising and soothing as it goes. The squeeze tube application makes using it highly practical and with the absence of any floral aroma coupled with the gender-neutral packaging, makes us all feel comfortable about using it.

The ingredients read like a Del Brown wish list!  Mineral oil free, every single ingredient is 100% natural and 95% of them are from certified organic farming. Even the outer packaging is made of sustainable paper.  The base for the cream is Castor oil, Beeswax, Olive Oil and Shea Butter.  Then we find skin loving Vitamin E, phytochemical and antioxidant rich Blueberry seed oil, Sunflower seed oil and finally Rosemary leaf extract.

I’ve been using ‘All you need is me’ for the past month and have become an instant fan, there’s nothing about this product I don’t love.  Fully Del Brown Approved!
