Eco Cosmetics Green Tea and Pomegranate Shower Gel is a good value for money natural shower gel. I’m currently using my second bottle of this organic shower gel, because I really like it. Why? It’s Ecocert certified organic, costs under £5, cleans gently without drying, and contains lovely botanical ingredients.
I’ve never heard German natural cosmetics company Eco Cosmetics mentioned by other natural beauty bloggers. That’s a shame, because they have some really nice products which are all certified organic, vegan, and cruelty free. Unusually, their products are formulated with well water opposed to tap water, which helps with sustainability. The packaging is made from recycled materials.
In my opinion, the design of the shower gel’s packaging doesn’t do it justice. From a quick glance, I can hardly tell it contains such beneficial ingredients.
The scent is a citrus, green tea type fragrance which is very refreshing in a shower gel. It appeals to both women and men and is neither feminine nor masculine. The gel is clear and slightly runny.
Let’s have a look at the ingredients.
