A few of you have recently asked us about the best organic beauty buys, so when the new Bloom Organics range crossed my desk I just knew it was something worth sharing.
But before I get into the goodies, I thought I should fill you in on what classifies something as Certified Organic.
To be given the Australian Certified Organic (ACO) stamp of approval, a product must contain at least 95 per cent of organic ingredients, with the balance being made up of naturally produced plant products and/or natural, non-toxic preservatives and additives.
No easy feat I can assure you.
While Bloom has always taken a natural approach to beauty, it’s only 17 years on that they’ve produced a range in which 16 of the 19 products are credited with the ACO stamp. And boy, are we excited!
Although I could rave about the new range for ages, you’ve probably got friends to meet, dinners to cook and/or kids to feed, so I thought I’d pick a few of my fave essentials for the coming colder months…
Certified Organic All Purpose Body Balm – with a combination of organic shea and cocoa butters and organic avocado and rosehip oils, this rich balm is perfect for nourishing and hydrating cracked elbows, heels and the driest of hands. A little goes a long way so use it lovingly and sparingly!
Certified Organic Nourishing Body Oil – the ideal treat for winter weary skin! Available in ‘Calming’ or ‘Uplifting’ it can be smoothed all over your body or added to a warm bath to relax and soothe, or revitalise and energise. Either way, your skin will love the extra boost of moisture it provides.
Certified Organic Scented Soap – besides the gorgeous packaging and subtle fragrances, you’ll love the luxuriously rich lather these soaps provide. Formulated with organic shea butter and sweet almond oil, they’re ideal for everyday use and won’t dry out your skin.
