Urtekram is a Danish organic brand that makes cruelty free skincare and haircare. Many of their products are vegan, plus they’re very affordable. I was recently sent some products to try out. Below is my review.
Aloe Vera Body Lotion
This body lotion says regenerating on the label, so is meant to be great for skin. With my recent issues with random allergic reactions, my skin has been very sore. Whilst this lotion didn’t help with the severe itching, it did help soothe my skin once the severe itching from my reactions had passed. The Aloe Vera lotion has a very thin consistency to it and is slightly watery. But that’s not a negative. I like that because it’s very lightweight. This would be perfect for people whose skin needs just a little moisture. I don’t think this would work well on very dry skin.
Coconut Body Lotion
The Coconut lotion is a nourishing lotion, and it definitely does what it says on the label. The smell is quite coconutty and immediately makes me think of sunny beaches and summer time. Unlike the Aloe Vera lotion, this one is much thicker. It takes a little longer to absorb into the skin but it would be perfect for those whose skin is very dry and in dire need of moisture. I reach for this lotion a lot, especially for use on my legs as my skin is very dry.
Nordic Berries Shampoo
I wish you could smell this shampoo because it smells divine. This claims to be a repairing shampoo which I was really excited to try. Especially since my hair is in need of TLC. I found that despite it not have SLS, it still lathered into my hair nicely. The shampoo rinsed nicely and left my hair feeling extremely soft. This shampoo also worked really well on my sons hair, leaving it very shiny and bouncy. Since I was sent this shampoo, the conditioner that matches has arrived with me. Let me tell you, this combo is amazing. It rivals my Oway haircare, and that’s saying something.
Rose Hand Cream
As with everything else in this review, the Rose hand cream is organic and vegan. It smells gorgeous, too. The formulation is moisturizing but it isn’t heavy. The cream absorbs quickly, leaving a light scent of rose. I quite like using this on my feet as it’s not greasy. I can see this being a firm favourite this winter for chapped, dry hands.
Overall I’m pretty impressed with the products I’ve tried so far. I wasn’t expecting too much from them since they’re not ridiculously expensive but I was pleasantly surprised. I think it’s amazing that Urtekram has created affordable organic skincare that’s also cruelty free and mostly vegan (some products are vegetarian).
I can’t speak for every single Urtekram product, but if the others are as good as what I’ve tried so far, then I have no hesitations recommending Urtekram products to my friends and blog readers.
