Abahna Vetiver & Cedarwood Bath Foam

Remember Matey?  We’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for bath foams ever since Matey bubbled us clean. But since most bath foams contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), or its near-relation SLES - and tend to make our skins itch - they’re generally off the menu. The whole ABAHNA range, though, is free from SLS, SLES, parabens, petrochemicals, artificial colour. But forget what it doesn't include: it's the gorgeousness of this product itself which has us swooning, with its incredibly soothing, earthy scents of cedarwood and vetiver.  No, not a bit girly.  But at the end of a frantic day in which we 'live in our heads', this literally grounds and (yes) 'earths' us.

ABAHNA's subtitled 'The Ceremony of Bathing', and is inspired by the bathing rituals of India and the Far East, and we've always enjoyed their products - but this is something else. The whacking great bottle looks fantastic on the bathroom shelf (although do be warned: the 500 ml size is a bit of a deadly weapon, and probably to be avoided if you've a glass or hard-tiled floor).

A sublime new addition to our own bathing rituals. Matey:  it's over. For good.
