If you like your brands 100% wholesome you’re not going to be disappointed here. Kinn Living is a yurt knitter’s paradise being Soil Association COSMOS certified organic, eco-friendly, non-toxic and vegan. Even the packaging deserves some kind of sainthood – it’s recyclable, sustainable, fully-traceable, ethically-sourced and made in Britain. Body products are free of parabens, phthalates, SLS/SLES, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, petrochemicals, propylene glycol and colourants. This wave of environmentally conscious living isn’t going away any time soon, quite rightly, and much as I make fun of yurts, Kinn is I guess a bridge for those of us who don’t want to beat our hemp clothes against rocks by a river to wash them to a place where we can be easily less harsh in our impact and easily embrace a cleaner lifestyle. I’ve gone positively geeky over their household cleaning products HERE.
I find the packaging a bit bland if I’m honest – a bit apologetic when in reality this brand has everything to shout about. Being careful with your planet doesn’t mean you need to look sad and worthy – the opposite in fact. It’s’ probably not going to be a surprise then that the body products are ‘lightly’ scented. I’m used to Aromatherapy Associates which practically knocks you out with lovely aromatherapeutic notes but that level isn’t for everyone and if you do love aromatherapy but don’t like the blasters, Kinn is right up your street. The gentle notes of ylang ylang, tangerine and lavender in the body oil aren’t invisible but they’re delicate.
So, this little set is £45 which I find expensive given the bottles are 100ml HERE although they’re more individually. I get it that it’s meticulously produced but over pricing is what stops the majority of people who would love cleaner living to be a possibility from embracing it in a way they’d like to. It’s a problem actually that’s not at all about this brand in particular, but across the beauty board. Affordable, clean skin care products aren’t as easily available as they should be which limits opportunities to do the very thing that this type of brand is keen for everyone to do (although take a look at Polish brand Yope HERE). I should say that Kinn’s cleaning products are nicely priced at £3.50 for a washing up liquid and £4.25 for a bathroom cleaner.
