Bentley Organic – Natural Shower Gel Review
I mentioned in a previous post I was searching for a more natural shower gel that, at the very least, did not contain SLS, SLES or parabens. To find one which was affordable was also high on my list. Most natural, organic, environmentally friendly products usually come with a hefty price tag. Well, I’ve found a brand which ticks all the boxes. Bentley Organic sell some scrumptious organic natural bodywash (and squirty hand soap too) and they are a great price.
I first tried their hand soap a while back and was impressed. I’d stood in Tesco reading the labels of every squirty hand soap and they ALL contained SLS. I then went on to find some SLS free squirty soap after searching online. I didn’t realise Bentley Organic had a larger range until I spied the body wash in Wholefoods and recognised the brand. They have a huge selection of natural organic items including childrens bath and eco friendly household cleaning products.
I chose the revitalising bodywash with cinnamon, sweet orange and clove bud, as well as a deep cleansing bodywash with olive, tea tree and eucalyptus. Both types have over 80% organic ingredients and are Soil Association Certified. As stated on their website, this extra seal of approval means the products are not only organic, but also:
- Not tested on animals and do not contain ingredients of animal origin
- Parabens free
- GMO free
- Do not contain SLS or SLES
- Free from petro-chemicals
So, they are more environmentally friendly by supporting a reduction in harmful chemicals and encouraging better farming practices.
I paid £2.50 for each bodywash, which I think is a bargain compared to other companies selling similar items. I think these are the cheapest I have seen. I think I prefer the smell of the tea tree version, but both smell great. They froth up well (who needs SLS, eh?) and leave silky super soft skin. As they are so frothy a little goes a long way, making them even better value.
There is absolutely no need to buy a product containing nasty chemicals when you can get a more environmentally friendly organic version as good as these. I’ll definitely be purchasing this brand regularly from now on.
