Autumn is officially here which can only mean one thing: it’s time to start having baths again. Don’t settle for the dregs of your bubble bath bottle from last year. Go out and treat yourself to these natural, organic and vegan products that are as kind to your skin as they are to the environment.
A few months ago in the heat of summer a bath would only have been worth considering if it was filled with ice. Now, the day has come where a steaming tub of bubbles is not only bearable, it is desirable.
The natural beauty movement is here to stay as the Soil Association revealed the sector is in it’s seventh consecutive year of growth. We are clearly buying more and more organic beauty so why not push the boat out and consider an organic bath to compliment your natural skincare?
Bath time routines are very ritualistic and unique to each person. There’s the basic question of bubbles or oils, salts or milks. Then there’s the debate over what to do once you’re in. Do you read your new book, catch up on TV with a phone that is riskily balanced between a shower gel and a sponge, or do you simply just have a good think? The variations possible are seemingly endless, but however you take yours, allow us to make a case for the latest and best organic, natural and vegan products.
Now sit back and soak up all that mother nature has to offer.
