Oleo Bodycare is an affordable range of award-winning, simple, effective bodycare products handmade by Professional Aromatherapist, Olivia Chapman. Created, manufactured and packaged in Bridport, Dorset, Oleo products really do reflect the beautiful surrounding with formulations that use only the highest quality essential oils, herbs, vegetable oils and extracts, and completely exclude the use of parabens, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colours, mineral oils and sodium lauryl sulphate. With over 60% of ingredients being absorbed into the blood stream this is great news for people who want to avoid nasties in their skincare, as well as those with sensitive skin.
Recently Oleo Bodycare sent me their Rich Moisturising Hand Cream (60g, £9)* to review. Bursting with nourishing oils including geranium, lavender and frankincense hand cream sounded lovely and as a keen gardener I knew this was a product that would be right up my street, but I was curious as to whether it would it stand up to the harsh treatment my hands suffer when I’m working in the garden.
