Nourish Protect Nutri-Rich Body Cream – 100ml (£14.00)
When researching products to feature on Del Brown Approved, I prefer to deal direct with the person who’s baby it is. I had the pleasure to meet with Nourish founder Dr Pauline Hili recently. Her entire range combines certified organic plant extracts with researched bio-actives to achieve results. So if you’re looking for targeted results from your skincare, this is one brand you should certainly consider.
The base for this body cream is water, organic aloe vera juice powder, vegetable based glycerin, organic soya oil, organic omega-rich Chilean rosehip oil and moisturising organic shea butter. Then we see two olive oil based emulsifiers and various synthetic and naturally derived skin absorbers, peptides, preservatives (paraben free) and thickeners.
The combination of these ingredients is designed to stimulate collagen and improve the texture of the skin for a firmer, smoother feel. Finally, vitamin C rich organic orange peel oil and organic mandarin peel oil. In total, 85% of the ingredients are soil association certified organic and the entire range is Vegan society approved, so no animal derived ingredients found here.
The body cream is dispensed in an airless pump and has a light cream hue. If you’re expecting this cream to smell strongly of oranges, you’ll be disappointed. The aroma is only mildly citrus with hints of rosehip. The cream quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving it moisturised and looking smooth without feeling sticky or tacky. Dry elbows, hands and feet in particular love this. It also works great as an aftersun if your skin is feeling particularly thirsty.
