I absolutely loved the Rose Body Lotion from Urtekram. Urtekram is a Danish brand that I hadn’t heard of before but is long lived having started back in 1972 and is now Scandinavia’s largest organic wholesaler. It’s a certified organic product and being keen to use organic products wherever possible I was very glad to be able to try it out. It comes in a large and cost effective 245ml pump dispenser and the packaging is simple yet effective. One pump dispenses exactly the right amount for one arm or a leg and has a thick creamy consistency making application easy.
The fragrance is attractive yet subtle and not overpowering with rose. The added ingredients of geranium oil and aloe vera give a blend of aromas that are long lasting and pleasing to the nose.
On application the body lotion soaks straight into the skin leaving no sign of sticky residue like some other premium brands. Immediately my skin felt extra soft, well nurtured and had a lovely fragrance.
As well as being certified organic its 100% natural, cruelty free and suitable for vegans so would make a perfect gift although is affordable for everyday use. In fact, all Urtekram’s care products are certified organic with the COSMOS ORGANIC certification of Ecocert Greenlife, without synthetic preservatives, made with vegetable ingredients (the lip gloss contains beeswax), without petrochemical ingredients and not tested on animals leaving you with a guilt free purchase.
There are many organic products to choose from on Urtekram’s website from face creams to shower gel and I will certainly be trying other products from the range. Urtekram’s rose body lotion is an indulgent cream at a not so indulgent price and I would highly recommend it.
