A couple of days ago, I shared a very affordable daily body wash. But as it goes with mass and affordable products, it doesn’t satisfy the needs of those who prefer something natural or organic. So here’s one that is. Natural and organic I mean.
Introducing Marius Fabre, a brand I warrant few of us have come across thus far. It is distributed locally by The Brand Story, alongside other niche brands and products, primarily in the bath and body department – a category I love to indulge in!
Marius Fabre is the name of the founder of the brand, who started up brewing potions and soaps in his garden shed in Salon-de-Provence at the tender age of 22, back in 1900. Yes folks, 1900. This is a soap company that is over a century old! Their speciality are their solid soaps but I suppose we have to move with the times. Modern times call for shower gels, and Marius Fabre delivers in this one from the Olivia range – an Organic Relaxing Shower Gel with Bitter Orange Flower essential oils.
The first thing I noted was the packaging. The shower gel is packaged in an opaque bottle that looks very much like frosted glass, but is in fact, plastic! Now, as much as I like the use of glass in my skincare products, I opt for plastic every time for the shower. I had a glass jar of body scrub once. An accident in the shower left me with a lot of cleaning and a bloody foot. So, lesson learnt. No more glass thingamajics in the shower!
