This month we bring you Essential Care, an award-winning range with cult status. This organic skincare classic line is certified to Soil Association organic standards and hand-made in Suffolk with pure plant oils and biodynamic herbs.
This complete range is well-known among eczema sufferers and it offers products suitable for different skin types, extensive body and hair care lines and specialist baby and sensitive skin products.
One of the top sellers is the Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser (£18.50). Top 3 in the Soil Association Organic Beauty Awards 2007 and recommended by top beauty journalists Jo Fairley and Sarah Stacey plus actress Denise van Outen says she "can't live without it!"
This week I have been using the Essential Care Coconut Cleanser (£14.00). This is a deliciously scented, vegan and organic cleanser is mild yet very effective. The test coincided with a particularly dry patch for my skin. Generally, I would not try a new product at this time to avoid an itchy flare but this cleanser is suitable for dry and sensitive skin. My veredict is that this Coconut Cleanser is one of the most gentle and soothing cleansers I have ever tried. Most cleansers cause some stinging or residual dryness to dry skin but this cleaned my skin safely, dealing with my foundation and mascara effectively. Taking into account the ingredients are a mild and a totally vegan blend of skin-conditioning coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil and essential oils including clary sage is not bad. The cleanser has a fresh, delicate scent that is entirely a product of these oils, so there is no need for stingy, artificial fragrances.
If your prefer a face wash or have oily or acne-prone sensitive skin, then the Essential Care Lemon & Tea Tree Facial Wash (£14.00) may be preferable and leaves skin scrupulously clean smooth and refreshed.
A special mention goes to the Essential Care 2 in 1 Purifying Mint Mask (£20.00), the first ever product to be both Organic and Fairtrade UK certified!
