Spotlight: Colai – naturally clean

While surfing the web one day I found Colai's Facebook profile and was immediately intrigued by the words "natural based".  I contacted them and after a quick meet-up to find out what they are all about came to the conclusion that Colai products are really all natural, paraben free and without any synthetic ingredients or colourants. We were lucky enough to receive some samples and we were pleasantly surprised! The products feel super clean while being gentle on your skin and hair.

Colai was born from the need for a natural skincare product that can address one of the co-founders problem skin while being affordable for everyone. In collaboration with a skincare production specialist Colai products were launched providing (finally!) all natural, high quality skincare products at affordable prices. Their products are odourless and have no artificial colourants to keep it as natural as possible and as a result eco-friendly as well!

Some of the main ingredients used in Colai's skin care range are goji berry extracts (anti-ageing), pomegranate extract (high in vitamin E and therefore great for giving natural sun protection), argan, coconut and jojoba oils. The face toner contains a combination of witch hazel and cucumber. Witch hazel is great for it's astringent (big word - but basically causes the skin cells to contract) properties. It is capable of naturally reducing acne, blisters, insect bites, poison ivy, inflammation and much more.

The face wash creates a soft foam on the skin gently cleansing the skin of impurities without stripping it of its natural oils. Ideal even for us suffering from dryer winter skin! Even my husband is using this wash and as a result, his skin is definitely clearer.

Their body butter (my favourite out of all the products!!) contains cocoa and shea butter giving it a buttery and thick consistency. Although thick, the skin absorbs the moisture quickly leaving the skin soft and subtle. I suffer from very dry skin AND the tendency to avoid applying lotion because of the sticky feeling most body lotions leave on the skin. I took my sample of Colai Body Butter with on honeymoon (to the cold Drakensberg) 3 weeks ago and what a brilliant move! The body butter saved my legs after neglecting them for a couple of days. Overnight my legs were soft and not at all flaky. This is definitely my new go-to product - no more excuses for me!

Colai produces a range of  three shampoo's (sulphate free, sulphate free with argan oil and natural) and an argan oil based conditioner. I tried out the sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. The sulphate free shampoo is free of the detergent sodium lauryl sulphate used to remove oils from hair. Colai's version gently cleaned my hair and scalp and I felt great knowing that my hair's natural oils are being retained. Their conditioner was even better than the shampoo and gave my hair (which is dyed and very long) a real moisture boost making it easier to detangle and handle. Argan oil is known for being super moisturising and helps to tame frizz and fly-aways, protect against the heat of hair dryers, curlers and flat irons, all the while promoting body, and a healthy shine. Colai's conditioner did just that! 
Colai is all good and all natural. And definitely a new Burst favourite! For a price list or to order some of their awesome products visit their Facebook page or email them at colai.products@gmail.com.
