Love it: The Body Shop’s Absinthe Purifying Hand Care collection

Most definitely taking inspiration from the ‘green fairy’, The Body Shop is set to launch its new Absinthe Purifying Hand Care range in March – and it’s almost as potent as its namesake!
The four product strong range - which includes Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream, Hand Gel, Hand Butter and Hand Wash - was created especially to combat both dry skin and bad odours with its unique formulation and distinct scent. The products include absinthe extract, otherwise known as wormwood, a very special ingredient that usually feels more at home in a dimly lit bar than in your bathroom cabinet!
But before it was classed a ‘dangerous’ drink in the early twentieth century, Absinthe was thought to have great medicinal properties, and the Ancient Egyptians used wormwood for its antiseptic qualities. The Body Shop range’s Absinthe Purifying Hand Gel draws on this tradition, and is a great alternative to chemical-heavy hand sansitisers – which can only be a good thing.

The products also contain the likes of Community Fair Trade shea butter; and fragrance notes of bergamot, neroli and petit grain for a rather addictive scent. Furthermore, all the products in the range are triclosan-free and are suitable for all skin types.
So come March get your hands on some Absinthe – because your hands deserve a drink, too!
