Greenfrog Botanic Geranium & Peppermint Body Wash & Neroli & Lime Hand Wash - Review*


Wash away!


Green Frog Botanic were kindly looking for bloggers to review their products and after looking at the products on their website (www.greenfrogbotanic.co.uk), I asked whether it would be possible to review them. They kindly agreed and these were what they sent me, the Geranium & Peppermint Body Wash and the Neroli & Lime Hand Wash!

In Greenfrog products you will only find plant based derivatives. And what you won't find are petrochemical derivatives, sulphates, parabens, palm oil or any harmful chemicals. This is because Greenfrog care about the goodness of the products that they produce and also want to ensure that there's a minimum impact on the Planet when creating their products! The range is made from certified organic soapberries (Sapindus Mukorrossi) harvested by farmers in the Himalayas, shipped from India by boat to Europe, from which they extract the natural soap (Saponin). They then simply mix it with certified organic aloe vera, a few plant derived foaming agents, surfactants and essential oils of the best quality. Their products are 98% natural and the ingredients are all very quickly biodegradable. Their products are also registered by the Vegetarian and The Vegan Society, are cruelty free and are also in the process of getting the Leaping Bunny Logo as well as the Ethical Buyer Certification for their products.

Greenfrog Botanic Geranium and Peppermint Body Wash 

This body wash is made from soapberries, these magical berries are used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat sensitive and dry skin and leave your body superbly clean and really soft. The high quality antioxidant moisturising aloe vera is combined with calming geranium oil and cooling peppermint oil, all of which are renowned for skin conditioning. Geranium oil calms the nervous system and creates a deep sense of relaxation. It also cuts through stress and tension and promotes clarity. And pure peppermint oil has strong cooling and refreshing properties. And also stimulates the tired mind, enabling it to focus and concentrate, making it stronger.

I found this body wash to have quite a manly scent due to the peppermint, but it's not over powering like you think it might be and it doesn't linger on your skin afterwards. I ended up offering it to my Boyfriend instead of continuing to use it myself because of the scent. I found that the body wash lathered up well and it left my skin feeling clean and soft afterwards.

Greenfrog Botanic Neroli and Lime Hand Wash

This hand wash is also made from organic soapberries. The high quality antioxidant moisturising aloe vera is combined with zesty rejuvenating neroli oil and purifying antibacterial lime. Neroli is know for it's delicious fragrance and its mood lifting effect. Perfect for a shower, good against fatigue and helping with positive emotion. And Lime oil is an antioxidant which protects the skin and is antimicrobial, antifungal, anti allergenic and anti-inflammatory.

This was my favourite product out of the both. I really like the fresh citrus smell it gives off and because of this it leaves your hands feeling and smelling very clean. It lathers up well and doesn't dry out your hands afterwards.

Overall I'll be keeping the fresh smelling hand wash in mind when I need to repurchase hand soap again!
