The first thing you notice about this Raw Organic 80% Organic Refreshing Body Wash is that the 80% bit stands out. But actually I like that. A lot of cosmetics are called organic but have permitted non-organic ingredients, while this one just tells you the facts.
Sent to us by So Organic, the shower gel is certified by the Soil Association and contains organic apple and elderflower oils to give it its distinctive fragrance. And it is quite distinctive and takes a little getting used to.
Being used to quite ‘watery’ shower gels, it was a bit of a surprise to discover how thick this one was and you have to give it a good squeeze to get it out of the tube. But being thick means a little goes a long way and it lathers up nicely.
It’s almost a luxury body wash if such a thing exists, it feels like a treat using it and is smooth and silky and, important, cleans you too. If apple and elderflower isn’t your thing, Raw Organic also make a range of hand soaps, shampoos etc in flavours like bilberry and juniper; wild chamomile and olive; and honey and barley.
Raw Organic 80% Organic Refreshing Body Wash costs £8.00 for 250ml from So Organic.
