I am back with another post from The Good Zest Co, a brand which uses organic ingredients and are eco-conscious, plastic-free, vegan and cruelty free with a huge emphasis on respect for all living things. Their products are kind to the skin and are designed to tread softly on the earth, with all of their packaging being either recycled, renewable and/or biodegradable. The Good Zest Co use aluminium bottles which are more sustainable than plastic and are refillable - in fact, if you return your empty aluminium bottles to them they will give you 10% off your next order.
The first product I wanted to mention is The Good Zest Co Organic Body Oil* (£14.95 for 150ml), a hand-blended organic oil that is made up of just seven natural ingredients, all chosen for their unique abilities that will hydrate, soften and nourish the skin. This Grapefruit-fragranced oil is suitable for all skin types, but is particularly beneficial to those with dry or sensitive skin, and it comes in a glass bottle with either a screw cap or pump applicator, depending on which you prefer. Key ingredients include Almond Oil to improve the skin tone and texture and reduce the appearance of scars, Apricot Oil, which has a high content of antioxidants which is especially great for mature or dry skin as it deeply nourishes and softens the skin, Grapeseed Oil to improve the moisture levels of the skin, therefore reducing fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots, Evening Primrose Oil to soothe the skin and strengthen the skin's barriers to reduce moisture loss, Rosehip Oil which will also help to improve the moisture levels of the skin whilst giving a healthy look to the skin, and Pomegranate Oil to penetrate deeply into the skin and soothe dry skin. No nasties, no artificial colours or fragrances, just natural goodness. You can use this on the skin, in the hair, or even add a little to your bath for the most luxurious velvet-soft skin.
One of their newest products is The Good Zest Co Hydrating Body Balm* (£12.95 for 30g), which comes in a little glass pot and a natural pouch to keep it stored in, which is great for keeping in your handbag or for travelling with. The Hydrating Body Balm has been formulated using nourishing plant oils and butters that immediately soften the skin, helping to improve the appearance of scars and uneven skin tone, whilst also supporting the skin's natural ability to heal. In addition to skin-friendly ingredients like Cocoa Butter, Organic Jojoba and Evening Primrose Oils, the Body Balm is infused with Orange and Clementine Essential Oils which leaves the skin smelling beautifully. A little goes a long way with this Balm, and I have been using a small amount on all of my surgery scars, and it has definitely helped to reduce the amount of redness and the harshness of my scars.
The Good Zest Co also create the most beautifully scented candles, which make the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. The Good Zest Co Relaxing Organic Lime & Bergamot Candle* (£12.95) comes in a metal tin, and as soon as you remove the lid you can smell that zingy, creamy goodness. It has a natural wick and has little pieces of lime settled into the top of the candle, which I found a lovely little touch. This fragrance is all about uplifting your spirits, energising your mind and promoting a positive attitude. It has plenty of burn time in it and of course it contains certified organic and natural ingredients.
