Love: Ecoya’s bath and bodycare collection


We all know someone who has fallen shamelessly in love with an Ecoya candle – I know I have with about four of them, and show no sign of giving up yet. All six of their scents have been instant hits all over the world, and now fans like me can take their relationship with Ecoya that much further with the release of four new bath and body products that follow those fragrances. The new releases – a hand cream, body exfoliator, lip balm and luscious body nourisher – are absolutely killer, and proof that the New Zealand-owned company is determined to be thought of as “more than just a candle company” and set to truly take on the world.
In line with the company’s environmentally conscious ethos, all of their bath and body products are free from Parabens, Sulfates, Propylene Glycol, Silicone and Artificial Colour and are hypoallergenic. The products feature all natural fragrances and are created using natural bases, with Macadamia Oil featuring most prominently. Macadamia Oil is a wonderful natural emollient that is particularly gentle on sensitive skin. It has a few exceptional properties that make it perfect for use as a cosmetic base, the major one being that it is high in Palmitoleic Acid, a substance which resembles some of the cells in human skin. The high Palmitoleic content promotes softness, elasticity and what is termed the “cushiony” feel of young, healthy skin. It’s also non-greasy, despite being rich in skin nutrients.
The four new products all feature the locally designed, eco luxe packaging that Ecoya has become known for, making them impossible to hide in the bathroom cabinet. The Body Exfoliator and Body Nourisher are designed to work in harmony together, and both come housed in beautiful heavy glass jars. The Lip Balm is a little luxury for your handbag. The hypoallergenic formula soothes and replenishes even the most sensitised lips, locking in natural moisture to help calm and protect from the elements. It also contains New Zealand’s very own super ingredient for the skin, Manuka honey. Last but not least, Ecoya’s new handcream is a barrier-forming hypoallergenic cream that protects, nourishes and moisturises your hands, leaving no residue behind.
Vanilla Bean Body Nourisher has already won for the company “Best New Product” at the recent New York Gift Fair and the others are sure to be as well-received by everyone who gives them a whirl. So what are you waiting for? Get in there, you won’t be disappointed.
