Sabon Goes Organic

Sabon started out in 1974 with one natural soap handcrafted in a backyard in Israel, and the brand now has shops around the world. Today, it expands into the organic market with its Sabon Organic line.

Even though the "organic" labeling of beauty products (vs. food) often comes under fire for lack of consistency and regulation, this line comes ECOCERT-approved from an international organization that examines organic cosmetics. To be certified, the products must have 10 percent minimum approved organic ingredients, and at least 95 percent of ingredients must be from natural plant sources. In addition, certification requires the absence of synthetic fragrances and dyes, silicones and glycol, petro-chemical and mineral oils, and parabens, and no animal ingredients/testing.

I got a sneak peek and sniff of one of the products from this line. Read my thoughts on the item I tested when you


The Organic Butter Cream, $39 (bottom right), is a rich emollient moisturizer. I can hold the open jar upside and shake it, but the cream stays in! It feels just as thick going onto the skin, but not sticky or greasy. Along with the familiar shea butter, jojoba oil, and aloe leaf juice were other plant extracts like maris sal (dead sea salt), dill extract, and macadamia seed oil. Plus each label lists exactly how much is natural — this item has 98.86 percent total ingredients of natural origin and 82.41 percent from organic farming — and comes in recycled packaging. I'm popping this in my fridge as soon as I get home for a cool Summer treat.

I can't wait to try out this new brand, the packaging is great and the descriptions of the products sound heavenly. I am usually hesitant buying products that say "organic" on them because who knows if they actually are, "organic"--and the price is usually substantially steeper. Since these products are actually legitimate, I'm sure they work wonderfully!
