Crabtree & Evelyn Introducing Avocado, Olive & Basil Body and Hand Care Collection

Crabtree & Evelyn introduces its new Avocado, Olive & Basil Collection. Inspired by the philosophy of its namesake, John Evelyn, to “Explore everything, keep the best”, Crabtree & Evelyn has searched the world for the finest quality plant extracts, botanical oils, and emollient butters to create its Avocado, Olive & Basil Collection. This exquisite collection blends carefully selected ingredients drawn from nature to deliver an ultra- moisturising benefit.

The avocado fruit, indigenous to Central and South America, has long been hailed for its natural healing and beneficial properties, particularly the ability to moisturise and soothe the skin. In the Mediterranean, olive oil has been used for centuries in skin care, culinary, and medicinal applications, earning it the reputation of “liquid gold”. It is the combination of these two fruits with the restorative and aromatic properties of basil that has resulted in a new ultra-moisturising body and hand care range. These antioxidant-rich fruit oils and soothing basil will help to condition, restore, and moisturise your skin.

Central to this collection is a luxurious Skin Nourishing Body Butter, which will moisturise the driest skin and can be massaged into thirsty skin anytime for ultimate deep conditioning.

The unique fresh green herbal fragrance captures the scent of avocado and olive blossoms, basil, sage, and Mediterranean herbs, making it suitable for both men and women. The entire range is suitable for all skin types and is formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, propylene glycol, and mineral oil.

Available in-store and online from February 15th 2012
