~Company~ Lever Bros was founded in 1890 with its first product Sunlight Soap that helped to change people’s attitude towards hygiene in Victorian Britain. In the 1930’s a few other forward thinking company’s joined forces and became Unilever. Unilever is committed to being a sustainable company and has been at the forefront of hygiene for many years in the 1920’s they launched a clean hands campaign to encourage children to wash hands before meals. The company does have National Hand Washing Day still, and a Brush Day and Night campaign with the World Dental Federation. In the 1990’s they started using sustainable agriculture. In 2009 they joined the Heart Age Campaign and the Woodland Trust. There are many household brands produced by Unilever ranging from Hellmann’s Mayonnaise to Dove under arm deodorant. The company is pretty sketchy on animal testing only saying that a vast majority of there products do not use animal testing and they are committed to finding alternative approaches to safe testing.
~Packaging~ The shampoo is in a nice minty coloured green bottle with a pink flip up lid. There is a large picture of a pink orchid on the front and a small picture of silk. The packaging does seem to be aimed at women so not sure if it is a women only product. The brand name is clear and the hair type (normal or dull) it is aimed at is also clear. On the back of the bottle there is a description of the product and what it can do for your hair, but no lather rinse repeat instructions, in Spanish and Greek. The ingredients list is long and full of scary sounding ingredients. There is also a do not eat warning. The contact details are easily visible, The bottle is recyclable.
~Product~ The contents of the bottle are a pearlescent pink colour and smell really nice and flowery and fresh. The shampoo is very rich I only use a fifty pence size blob for my mid length hair. The shampoo foams up easily and rises away leaving no residue. When combined with the matching Conditioner my hair is left feeling smooth soft and clean. The perfume is very long lasting and Mr H does comment on the smell of my hair. I use this shampoo most days in the shower and my hair has continued to be manageable and dries up well naturally or under the hair dryer.
~Conclusion~ I am very happy with this shampoo and will buy it again. The large 400ml bottles are very good value being around £2. The company in itself does seem very committed to improving itself and the world around it. I would recommend this to a friend and I do believe that Mr H has also been using it in the shower so it’s not just for the girls.
