Mmmm coconut: I love the smell and the taste. It’s really one of those exotic things I love the most. But I hadn’t tried coconut shampoo and conditioner before, until Urtekram sent me a package full of products from their coconut line. This brand is all about organic products and I’m totally into this! Today I’m telling you all about it.
I hadn’t heard of Urtekram before so I wanted to find as much information as possible about this company. Their story began in 1972. Lisbeth Damsgaard and Ronnie McGrail are the founders of Urtekram. They opened a little herb merchant shop in Copenhagen. They sold products which were natural, simple and pure. It didn’t stop here, they began a new concept: Urtekram. A lot of people called them ‘the greens’ and a lot of eco enthusiasts had found their way to Urtekram. Right now their products are being sold in more than 36 countries.
Urtekram is a very special name, which is actually an old fashioned Danish term for a spice/herb merchant. This refers to the founders, who were herb merchants with their own shop in Copenhagen. But Urtekram has a wide range of food products and skin care products and I received different products from their coconut range.
I received the coconut shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and the shea butter lavender body balm. The body balm is my absolute favourite: it contains shea butter which has been used by African women for centuries. They understood the great benefits of shea. It’s perfect to soothe dry and dehydrated skin. What I like about it? You can use it as a nourishing mosituriser for your body, face, lips, nails and even as an overnight hair mask or for split ends. It’s a life saver. My skin is really dry and I apply this body balm on my cheeks before going to bed. It’s the perfect way to keep my skin moisturized. It’s perfect for people with dry skin, but if you have an oily skin I wouldn’t apply too much.
The coconut products don’t only smell great, they help to moisturize your hair and skin. It contains coconut nectar and daisy flower extract which leaves your hair and skin in a wonderful scent of coconut. I LOVE it!
