i've changed up my personal care regimen somewhat recently and have been trying to use more natural products. i've been using kiss my face conditioner for my hair, i've been using olive oil to moisturize my skin and hair and castile soap to cleanse my skin and hair. once i find something that i love i tend to stick to it and often do not open myself to try out new things but there was one day when i discovered sweet leaf bath company.
i stumbled upon sweet leaf via a post on hip & urban girl's website about their winter beauty round-up where they listed a lip balm in a 100% compostable eco tube. they had me at compostable-how could i not give it a try? i ordered the lip balm along with some soaps which lead to my order of their shea butter which lead to my order of their scrubs and i have been ordering from sweet leaf ever since because i have been loving every product i have tried from them.
their products are handcrafted in small batches using pure, organic and fair trade certified ingredients; they're hand blended with pure essential oils, preserved using natural methods; there are no petroleum-based ingredients, sulphates, detergents, synthetic preservatives, colours or fragrances. and they're canadian! i love to support canadian.
below are some of my favourites that i continually order on a regular basis.
|beeswax lip balm in a 100% compostable tube.|
|shea butter, unrefined, not bleached and in a compostable container. |
it offers natural sunscreen protection equivalent to an spf15.
|this java bean scrub is fantastic. filled with dead sea salts, organic fair |
trade coffee beans and a lot of other nourishing goodness.
the best part is if you use this in the shower there is no need to use
lotion after because it leaves your skin perfectly moisturized.
|it's hard to choose one favourite soap because all of them are great. |
and all of them are free from synthetic fragrances, dyes and additives.
