Born to Bio shower gel mango. Review

Hello,


today I would like to review an organic shower gel by Born to Bio. I got Tropical Mango but there are many different options available. 




I have to admit that at the beginning I was a bit sceptical about this product. In the past I have tested two products from Born to Bio company: a hair conditioner and a deodorant. Unfortunately they weren't any good for me and I was very disappointed with those products.

Luckily the shower gel is very good. First of all it has a gorgeous scent  and the fragrance is 100% natural. I think that at this point I should quotate what the producer says: "let yourself be taken into a desert Island and explore the sweetness of a  juicy mango." Well, I don't know about being taken into an island but this shower gel smells deliciously fruity, it gives me a positive energy and puts me in a good mood:). And that already means a lot...Especially when the morning is cold and dark:). But, hold on, there is more positive things to come...
The Born to Bio shower gel is mild, doesn't dry out the skin. In fact there is even no need to apply a moisturizer after the shower- I have normal skin, I cannot tell how it would behave with a dry skin.
The shower gel doesn't lather much but its cleansing properties are very good. So, yes, it is gentle yet effective plus it smells gorgeous. Apart from that the product consists of 99.5% natural ingredients, 10% of ingredients come from organic farming.
It is free from  parabens, glycol, phthalates, dyes, silicone, phenoxyethanol.
And it has two certificates: Cosmébio, ECOCERT
Also the product is affordable: about 6 euros for 300 ml.
I can highly recommend this product to everyone. This shower gel is suitable also for small children.
Greetings and thank you for reading.

Born to Bio natural deodorant review frozen ginger

Hey,

how are you? Today I would like to review Born to Bio natural deodorant. I have been looking for a good natural deodorant for a long time. If you are interested in natural cosmetics then you know how difficult it is to find a decent natural deodorant (same with natural mascara). There are many natural deodorants  on the market but they contain aluminium which I want to avoid.

We should be all concerned about our health and I am being careful what kind of things I apply under my arms. I am perfectly  aware that a natural deodorant will not offer me as good protection as a traditional deodorant. It will not prevent the sweating process because it is not its job. So what the natural deodorant should do? 
It should stop or at least reduce the growth of bacteria. In other words it should minimize the odour. In the past I have been testing many natural deodorants  but unfortunately they were rather bad: they were either too sticky  or they would not dry quick enough. 

When I spotted  products from Born to Bio company I was very happy. I have not heard about this company before and I was very curious to try some of their products so I have bought a hair conditioner and a deodorant. Deodorants are available in four different scents:  ginger, rose, vanilla or zen (fresh grass smell). I got the ginger one.

Born to Bio Deodorant in ginger contains antiperspirant essential oils and bamboo powder which is known for its antibacterial properties. I thought it would be a good product. And it was at the beginning...
At the beginning the deodorant was working great I would apply it in the morning and in the evening I would still feel fresh. Deodorant would dry quickly after the application so it was a real time saver. It offered a very good protection against odour but...
Everything has changed when I got ill. I started sweating differently, I mean the body started releasing toxins through skin and my body smell was different.  And that was just awful: my chemistry and the smell of ginger would not work together whatsoever. At this point I won't go into details but trust me it was a disaster. No need to say that I have stopped using Born to Bio deodorant completely. Despite all this the deodorant has many positives as well:


  • absorbs quickly
  • doesn't  dry the skin
  • doesn't cause irritation
  • doesn't stain the clothes
  • aluminium-free
  • alcohol free
  • hypoallergenic
  • it has 100% natural fragrance
  • good natural ingredients

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Pseudotsuga Menziesii (Balsam Oregon) Water*, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Water*, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Lauroyl Lysine, Mentha Arvensis Leaf OIil, zingiber officinale Root Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Oil, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Cymbopogon Martinii (Palmarosa) Oil*, Cupressus Aempervirens (Cypress) Oil*, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil*, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Farnesol.

Because of the positives above I am still going to try the same deodorant but in different scent: vanilla or zen. I think that the ginger scent was too strong for me, maybe too masculine as well and that is why it didn't work for me but maybe it will work for you. I would say give it a try.

What do you think? Do you have any favourite natural deodorants?

Greetings,

Born To Bio Conditioner, 2 in 1 restructuring organic conditioner detangles and repairs

Hello,
I am always looking for a new organic hair conditioners. I have recently discovered a french company Planete Bleue and their range Born to Bio.

"Born to Bio was born in France in Auvergnes volcanic mountains in the heart of Planete Bleu's laboratory. It was created to praise the natural splendor of cosmetics and give the user a total experience that combines natural ingredients. Born to Bio products contain the best ingredients. All products are certified by ECOCERT and have a COSMEBIO label."
It all sounded great and I wanted to test some of the products. This hair conditioner was in promotion and had good ingredients so I bought it.

Producer's description: Shea butter and Tahiti Monoi oil containing hair repairing conditioner nourishes hair from root to tip and makes them easy to comb. Suitable for all hair types. 

Usage: apply the conditioner to towel-dried hair from root to tip up and leave for 2-3 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

My experience:
unfortunately this turned out to be a huge disappointment. It basically does nothing to my hair. It doesn't moisture the hair, it doesn't repair it and certainly it does not detangle as claimed. After application I actually have to use another conditioner. Shame because I am happy with their another product which is a ginger deodorant. 
The conditioner has quite thick consistency and nice nutty smell.
And because of that I started using it as a base product for my own hair mixtures.I use it in combination with a with a flax seed or castor oil and it works ok.
