Review Eco by Sonya Organic Coconut and Mint Body Wash

Review Eco by Sonya Organic Coconut and Mint Body Wash

Body wash isn’t the most exciting skincare product but it’s one that gives me the most amount of grief (along with sun screen). When my Green journey began it was shower gels that I switched out first because I realised sulphates were doing me no favours. That was fine up until a few years ago when I had skin tests that suggested I should avoid linalool. Out the window went every shower product I had ever known and in came Dessert Essence Fragrance Free Body Wash. Now I’m more than happy with Dessert Essence and I’ve used up several tubes but from time to time I miss fragrance. So this desire leads me on to my new Eco by Sonya Coconut & Mint Body Wash.

Products in the Eco by Sonya range are organic and cruelty free (Tanning and body care products are vegan and the sun care products are vegetarian). I was impressed by the Personal Outdoor Spray (which I bought for my holiday) and that’s what influenced me to try something else from the range.

This coconut and mint body wash has a delicious but not overpowering scent. I get a hit of mint, followed by coconut and then a hint of vanilla. It reminds me of candy or ice cream and I love it. The formulation is runny and I believe the surfactant would be Decyl Glucoside. It’s low foaming which I’m ok with and I like to use this body wash with my pink clay konjac sponge. 

I’m confident that the ingredients are suitable for my sensitive skin and dermatitis. My skin is left feeling clean and not stripped and it’s a good all rounder for the whole family. Eco by Sonya Coconut & Mint Body Wash (500ml bottle) is not the cheapest but I feel that's reflective of the brand's accreditation and formulas.
