Over the years I must have tried out dozens of skincare ranges, mainly natural as I like to know and understand what’s in each product. It’s important that it smells nice and most importantly does the job.
A little while ago I tried out Idan Oil by Liha when I was pottering around Liberty London. I rubbed in to my hands and then spent the rest of the day really enjoying the tuberose and coconut aroma – and also noticed that my hands were noticeably smoother. ‘ Idan ‘ means magic in Yoruba ( in Africa ) and I can see why it has been named this. It’s true.
One tuberose flower has been immersed in the oil using a traditional African process called enfleurage. When the bottle of oil is placed under warm water, the coconut pressed coconut becomes fluid enabling you to use the combination as an indulgent body lotion, leave in hair conditioner or even a perfume.
I’m a big fan of anything with coconut in, with all the health benefits it offers and if you’ve ever smelt tuberose – you might agree with me that it’s really feminine and gives a sense of warmth. The two fragrances together – heavenly. Now I have a full bottle here at home that I use every day on my hands and feet before bedtime and after baths.
Also from their ranges I have Liha’s Shea Butter and Ose Gidi Soap. The Shea Butter is an intense hand crafted moisturiser that can be used neat or as a base to make up your own cream. It has naturally occurring content of vitamin A and E and is known as a ‘ cure all ‘ formula. It melts between your hands and can be applied like the oil, all over.
I highly recommend the Ose Gidi soap – it is exfoliating and has deep cleansing properties.The formulation is vegan and contains hemp oil, coconut and shea butter and has healing and anti – inflammatory and anti – oxidant qualities due to the Moringa powder and vitamin E.
Do have a look at Liha’s website to find out more about each product and all that they do. I’m so glad I have discovered them. Liha and Abi who are the founders have been friends for a very long time and created this brand after they’d had many rave reviews from friends and guests who had sampled out their trial pots when they were toying with the idea of starting up as a business. As well as having their own website they are now also stocking at many high profile stores. Amazing how a brand can take off so quickly when they get it just right.
