The Organic Pharmacy Moisture Cream for Men – 75ml (£35.95)
The Organic Pharmacy, a company founded by Margo Marrone, opened her first shop on the Kings Road in London, in 2002. One of the brand philosophy’s is to ‘absolutely prohibit the use of artificial preservatives, fragrances and colorants’. So let me introduce you to this Organic Pharmacy, Moisture Cream for Men.
It has a naturally cream colour and a heady, masculine, slightly woody aroma. Dispense a small amount onto your fingers and smooth over the face. Less is more with this moisturiser; you really don’t need to use much. The cream quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving your face feeling hydrated, comfortable and smooth.
The biggest ingredient in this moisturiser is organic aloe vera, mixed with water, organic coconut oil, sesame seed oil, organic jojoba oil and organic shea butter. Some of the other key botanicals found in this moisturiser include sunflower oil and Tamanu. Now Tamanu oil, from the Polynesian Islands, contains a host of neutral Lipids, Glycolipids, and Phospholipids. More importantly used here in a moisturiser, it contains a natural anti-inflammatory.
Organic calendula has long been used to help heal a host of skin conditions. Organic St.John’s wart, anti-microbial organic propolis, natural antioxidant green tea and natural source Vitamin E. This combination of ingredients helps to calm and repair the skin. The light texture and quick absorption makes it ideal post shave to re-hydrate the skin.
This unusually large 75ml tube should last you a long time, the industry standard is 50ml. Its compact size makes it easy to throw into a gym bag or take away whilst travelling. It contains an excellent list of natural ingredients, including 81% organic ingredients. This is my first review of an Organic Pharmacy product and I’m confident, this won’t be my last!
