‘An effective natural alternative to E45-type creams which does not contain paraffin or other mineral oils.’
Beyond Organic Skincare has been creating natural and organic beauty products since 2005, and has since won 29 awards for their various products. All their products contain 100% natural ingredients and their two main ranges are organic too. All their products are fair trade, not tested on animals, suitable for vegetarians (most are suitable for vegans), and they come packaged in recycled and recyclable packaging!
I was really excited to test out their E-Natural Emollient Cream, a natural alternative to E45 and aqueous creams, which contains no paraffin or mineral oils. Looking at the list of ingredients, I was instantly impressed. It contains chamomile, to calm and soothe irritation and help skin repair; cucumber, to cool and soothe; and sunflower oil, which is rich in vitamins A, D, E as well as zinc, calcium, potassium, iron and phosphorous minerals. I love the fact that it’s handmade here in the UK too, in Cornwall.
The cream feels really soft and light, and absorbs quickly and easily into the skin – leaving no greasy residue like many similar creams. I like the fact that is has no scent, and it leaves my skin feeling really soft, smooth and moisturised. It’s perfect for sensitive skin – my skin often reacts to products but with this one I had no redness, stinging or soreness – just nourished, soft skin!
The most impressive thing is the price, it’s only £10 and the pot is bigger than I expected – plus a little goes a long way, I’ve been using the cream for weeks and I still have plenty left.
As it’s made with all natural ingredients, it’s suitable for all skin types; including children and babies. It can also be used during pregnancy and on sore nipples when breast feeding.
Many people who suffer from skin problems use aqueous and E45 creams, so this is the ideal natural alternative – suitable for those with dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis, and can even be used to soothe sunburn and insect bites, as well as heal scar tissue.
It’s a fantastic multipurpose, all-natural moisturising emollient cream, which is great value for money.
