Kronocare is a brand which makes bath and body products which are paraben and SLS free. Even our labels are printed on recyclable material! They also comes with a fun packaging with interesting names. So, I wanted to try them the very first day I got to know about them. I got my hand on 3 variants. Today, I will share my thoughts on the shower gel and body lotion from the Provencal Lavender range -
- Kronokare Provencal Lavender All is Well Shower Gel
- Kronokare Provencal Lavender Smooth(ening) Operator Body Lotion
They sure know how to give nice names to bath and body products.
Packing - They are packed only in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) or HDPE (high density polyethylene) bottles to make it easier to recycle after use.They come in sealed plastic bottle with flip tops. They are strong but unfortunately, one of the bottles faced a tiny dent during transit. So, I will be careful while travelling with it.
Smell - It smells of lavender - flowery and feminine. Also, the smell is quite strong and lasts long.
Kronokare Provencal Lavender All is Well Shower Gel
The shower gel foams well. I will suggest the use of a loofah to build up the foam. It cleans well without causing much dryness. The fragrance is transferred to skin and lasts for some time.
Ingredients - As per Kronocare's website, all the foaming ingredients are readily biodegradable.
Lavendual Augustofolia, Thymus Vulgaris,Sodium Leuryl Sulphate, Coco Di Ethanol Amide, Coco Mono Ethanol Amide, Dimethicon Derivetive (DC 8500), Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Ethylene Diamin Tetra Acetic Acid, Colour, Distilled water
Price - 60ml for Rs105 & 200ml for 325
Kronokare Provencal Lavender Smooth(ening) Operator Body Lotion
The body lotion is very light, spreads easily and moisturizes well. It does not work well in winter but works good in this season. As the fragrance is strong, it last for long. When layered together with shower gel, you can smell it for a long time.
Price - 60ml for Rs115 & 200ml for 345
Overall - I liked these travel size versions by Kronokare. More brands should bring these to help people decide before committing for the full bottle. I liked the smell of provencal lavender. Both shower gel and body lotions are good products. But, I do see some chemicals, mineral oil and colors in the ingredients list. I hope they bring more natural products. The fragrance is very strong so, you can even skip the use of perfume or deo. This range also includes glycerin soap, shampoo and conditioner.
