Beyond Organic Skincare were founded in 2005 and they’re based in Cornwall, they’re expanding rapidly due to their increasing worldwide popularity. They export to many parts of the world including Asia and Eastern Europe and 11 years on, they’ve won countless awards for their organic beauty products.
The ingredients used are 100% natural, they have two main ranges which are organic and fair trade, their products are not tested on animals and neither are the ingredients they use, their products are also suitable for vegetarians and most are suitable for vegans, they are also cruelty free!
Beyond Organic Skincare kindly sent me a few products to try, the products I received were a shine and strength shampoo and shine and strength conditioner which are both free of sulphates, silicones and parabens. A tub of emollient cream for sensitive skin which is 100% natural, a jar of detoxifying oil cleansing balm in germanium and a bottle of replenishing handcream.
I’ve been using all the products religiously every day since I received them.
My favourites has got to be the shampoo, conditioner and the handcream…It was really difficult to choose because they all worked really well for me.
I absolutely adore the shampoo and conditioner, I’ve never used paraben/silicone/sls free hair products before and I’m so happy they sent this for me to try, it’s basically made my high street shampoo obsolete, I can’t go back to them, ever! My hair feels amazing, my scalp feels amazing! They’re both suitable for the family and for all hair types. The shampoo contains sea buckthorn berry oil which leaves hair shiny and soft, aloe vera juice which soothes the scalp, panthenol, olus oil and glycerin for moisturising, conditioning and reducing static.
My hair has always been static and fly away, since using this, my hair has been amazing, I’ve had a full week of good hair days. I am well and truly amazed by this. You can tell how pleased I am with the amount of selfies on my feed and Instagram stories this week.
This shampoo and conditioner are water activated, so hair has to be wet throughly before application. It gives a decent lather and has a great clean fragrance, and to be fair, I don’t think I miss the lather much, because of the end results. My hair gets tangled really easily but the conditioner helps massively with this, without tugging at my hair and pulling it out or snapping them. The pair has done wonders for my scalp, I had a patch of dry skin (about the size of a 50p) on the back of my head at the edge of my scalp, that’s still there (I’m reluctant to put steroid cream there), but it did not sting or aggravate it, however I believe it slowly disappearing because I’m not using anything to irritate it.
For fine and thin hair with sensitive scalp (like me) I do think sls/silicone/paraben free products are the way to go. I am well and truly impressed.
I’ve lasted 4 days straight without using steroid cream for my dermatitis on my hands thanks to the replenishing hand cream, which is a record!
I usually have to apply steroid cream (Fucibet) at least every other day. I have to admit though, out of 20 people, 2 disliked the scent of the replenishing handcream, one was a bit offensive about it and the other… my dog who promptly ran away from me 🤣
Having said that my husband and friends liked the geranium/ sunflower / spa scent; bar that one “acquaintance”, I was very offended, however I have accept it being a grown up and all 🤔🤣; that it’s not to everyone’s taste.
The scent is quite heavy but it is pleasant for most. The hand cream was easily dispensed from a no mess and hygienic pump bottle, it absorbed really well without a greasy residue.
The e natural emollient cream is wonderful, it absorbed so well and I really liked applying this and wearing cotton gloves at bed time, I was really impressed to see that this emollient is 100% natural.
I do think both the replenishing hand cream and emollient is suitable for dermatitis and eczema sufferers, they do minimise flare ups, however everyone’s skin is different and I’m sharing my own experience, it may work for one but not the other.
Lastly the award winning detoxifying hot cloth cleanser, I really enjoyed using this, it removed all my make up but it was a little stubborn to get the eye make up off; I only had eyeliner on so you need to massage it in a little longer, it’s nice to do this as it also gets the blood circulation going and it didn’t sting my eyes either. The muslin cloth that they included felt so nice, and face the full hot cloth cleansing experience, this didn’t feel greasy and left my face feeling really soft then I followed with another cleanser.
The scent is lovely for something that’s natural and organic. This 50ml jar will last up to 3 months and the price is competitive with other cleansing balms that are on the market, but this is organic, award winning, cruelty free and natural!
I wouldn’t mind if these products are fragrance free as they’re all super effective.
I love the ethos behind Beyond Organic Skincare. I think the products that they sent to me to try are a good introduction for me to organic skincare.
