Nature Box Review – Environmentally Conscious Beauty

I love the fact that more and more top hair care and beauty brands are turning to more sustainable ingredients and packaging. The latest beauty range to hit the shelves in South Africa is Nature Box, a hair and body range that promotes more holistic living. With natural ingredients and bright colours, this exciting new brand from Schwarzkopf and Henkel is completely vegan and is made with cold-pressed oils extracted from fruit seeds and nuts.

What are cold-pressed oils?

Cold pressing is the most efficient extraction process, allowing the oil’s essential nutrients to be entirely preserved to deliver the best to the hair and skin. Nature Box products are neither refined nor processed, meaning all their valuable vitamins in the oils, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids, are not lost.

Testing the range

The Nature Box range features four different options, and over 18 different products, each addressing a different concern, from oily hair to sensitive skin, you can choose from Avocado, Coconut, Apricot and Almond. They are also free from silicones, artificial colours, sulphates.

I tried out the Avocado range of haircare and body products and here are my thoughts:

Nature Box Avocado Shampoo and  Conditioner 385ml {RSP 119.99}

The Shampoo, is formulated from 84% natural ingredients, including antioxidant-rich cold pressed avocado oil, which is meant to repair split ends and restore your hair’s overall condition. I adore the smell and the shampoo lathers up to a nice consistency, which is surprising due to its lack of sulphates. The bottle is a really great size as well and is a convenient shape to travel with.

The conditioner was a win as well, although I did find the smell a little stronger and more “avocadoish” then the shampoo. It does a great job though and conditioned my hair well, without weighing it down. After years of highlights, and curly hair, I need a conditioner with a little more “oomph”, and this delivered.

Nature Box Avocado Shower Gel 385ml {RSP 69.99}

This shower gel is divine! It is pH skin neutral and dermatologically tested. It has a gentle, uplifting scent, and it foams really well. I didn’t find it to be drying or too harsh at all. I loved loved this, and it is priced at an affordable level as well. A definite re purchase from my end.

Nature Box Avocado Body Scrub {RSP 89.99}

This may just be my favourite. I adore this body scrub. Everyone has their own preference, but I prefer a combination of gel with a little bit of scrub and this is just that. Not too harsh, but gentle enough to provide a daily exfoliation.

What I love the most – The brand is committed to sustainable practice and supporting small farmers. 25% of the packaging is made from recycled packaging (this could be a bit more though). Next on my list to try is the almond range, because I am absolutely in love with the pink of the packaging.

Nature Box is now available from Clicks, Checkers, Dis-Chem and Takealot.
