Review Greenfrog Botanic Body and Hand Washes

Review Greenfrog Botanic Body & Hand Washes

I have previously mentioned Greenfrog on my blog. Back in 2013 I reviewed samples of their cleaning products and soapnuts. The brand has undergone a makeover and the cleaning products are currently being reformulated. In the meantime, Greenfrog have launched body and hand washes. The range is formulated from certified organic soapberries (Sapindus Mukorrossi) with essential oil blends (Peppermint & Geranium and Neroli & Lime) that have been considered for different effects on skin and mood.

I have found both products a pleasure to use. They are low foaming but that is a trait to be expected from using soapberries. Whilst Greenfrog does not use SLS/SLES or ALS the surfactants are cocamidopropyl betaine, potassium cocoate, lauryl betaine and coco-glucoside. These are synthetic ingredients derived from coconut oil and sugar beets. The preservative system is levulinic acid and potassium sorbate. Whilst you may not get an overload of bubbles, the Peppermint and Geranium combination is a pleasure on my senses, something unique when comparing to similar products in my collection. It’s a floral delight with a minty kick.

Greenfrog should be commended for their ethos. Products are Vegetarian/Vegan, biodegradable and free from palm oil. According to their website they are working towards obtaining the Leaping Bunny trademark. Both the handwash and bodywash certainly do the job they are intended for so I am more than happy to recommend them.

Have you tried Greenfrog products? What did you think of them?
