Self care products also make the perfect gifts, why not shop this collection for your mum, sister or besties birthday coming up!

Legra's Natural Deodorant

This time of year we’re enjoying the outdoors and getting sweaty! Standard deodorants are not only single use plastic items that take up to 500 years to biodegrade, and release harmful gasses in the process, but they also usually contain harmful chemicals that aren’t any good for you! Our natural deodorant from Legra is not only in plastic free packaging and smells amazing, but Legra is a black owned brand that is all the more reason to support and invest in!

This summer we’re putting our skin through a lot, from sunbathing to wild swimming, and the increased heat can often irritate your skin, making your skin in need of a bit more care and attention!

This body butter in lavender and chamomile is a gentle moisturiser you can use all over your body to nourish your skin, perfect for applying to legs after shaving!
