Friendly Soap Lemongrass and Hemp Soap – 95g (£1.99)
In general, from the people I speak to, it seems the favoured ‘washing’ product of choice, is shower gel. But for those who suffer from some sort of skin irritation, we need to first look at what ingredients are in your cleansing products. I encourage you to go and count the number of ingredients that are in your current shower gel and consider this, Lemongrass and hemp soap from Friendly Soap.
This soap is made up of just five main ingredients. No SLS, no synthetic perfumes, colourings or preservatives. The base ingredients in this soap are olive oil, coconut oil, water, shea butter and finally the genuine, natural, sweet citrus aroma of lemongrass oil. No synthetic lemongrass aroma here. Finally, hemp leaves are crushed and mixed into the soap to provide a natural exfoliation.
Out of all of the friendly soaps I have reviewed so far, I found this to be one of the most foamy. So, while this soap makes an excellent all round body soap, leaving the skin feeling clean and smelling fresh, it also whips up to make an excellent shaving cream. A sharp blade glides effortlessly over the skin, negating the need for separate shaving gel.
Lemongrass is not only a culinary herb, often used in Chinese cooking, but did you know, Lemongrass has also been found to have anti fungal properties. Ideal for daily use, with a mild citrus lemon fragrance, both men and women will love this. I maybe wouldn’t suggest this for very sensitive skins or children, as you may find the hemp leaves a little too scratchy on the skin.
Thoroughly Del Brown Approved and a new personal favourite!
