PICK OF THE DAY: MuLondon Organic Lavender Moisturiser

| 2nd February 2011
Handmade, 100 per cent organic and PETA approved, MuLondon’s organic lavender moisturiser is perfect for dry skin

Natural products are becoming the norm, with everyone from Clarins to La Mer emphasising their botanical ingredients and green credentials. But green beauty products have had a bad rap over the years, with watery textures, greasy formulations and bizarre smells among common complaints. But this is 2011 and things have moved on. Forget what you thought you knew about organic moisturiser because if MuLondon’s Organic Lavender Moisturiser, £13, is any indication, things have changed.

Hand-made by MuLondon founder – and self-described ‘chief cream-whipper’ - Boris Zatezic; the lavender moisturiser doesn’t just smell fabulous, it’s also 100 per cent organic and PETA certified to boot. The concentrated formula means it’s slightly heavy and a little greasy, so much better when used as a night cream. Dry and sensitive skins will love it, as there are no chemical nasties, and it works brilliantly on dry elbows, knees and cuticles. The Organic White Chocolate Truffle Moisturiser, £13, is also well worth a look and is perfect for skin that needs a little extra TLC.
