No, we’re not talking about some kind of all-inclusive holiday drinking game – this is the latest collection from The Body Shop.
The Body Shop is Britain’s favourite ethical cosmetics brand, known for fighting against animal testing and supporting ethical trading. Absinthe on the other hand is a notoriously strong alcoholic spirit flavoured with aniseed and ranging in colour from toxic green to deathly black.
In the 1900s this harmful drink was even banned in the United States and most of Europe. Now, The Body Shop has launched a collection containing Absinthe extract designed to purify and freshen up hands.
Of course, you’re not going to fall into a drunken haze every time you sniff your hands. These four staple products only contain a very small amount of organic alcohol combined with other community fair trade ingredients.
