Maple Holistics

You may have seen beauty products from Maple Holistics floating around the blogosphere in recent months. I was lucky enough to be asked if I'd like to sample some, and after checking out their website I was keen to say yes. Based in the US, Maple Holistics create organic skin and hair care products, and pride themselves on using the purest and highest quality natural ingredients. I picked out the Argan shampoo and conditioner to try, as well as the Lavender Hybrid bubble bath.

When the products first arrived, I wasn't too keen on the packaging, but I changed my mind somewhat once I had arranged them on my bathroom shelf. They actually look quite cute and colourful all lined up together. Besides, it's what's inside the packaging that counts, right?

My hair, as we all know, is bleached. It also stubbornly refuses to hang in any remotely attractive way unless I force it to with straighteners or a curling iron, so it's fair to say my tresses can look a little lacklustre and in need of a serious moisture hit from time to time. The Argan shampoo and conditioner contain a blend of nourishing and moisturising ingredients, designed to "maximise smooth hairness" and deliver shiny, healthy looking hair. I couldn't wait to give them a try.

Because the shampoo is sulphate free, I expected to have a hard time working it into my hair, but in fact it lathered up just like a regular shampoo. Best of both worlds! Both the shampoo and conditioner feel beautifully light, which is good news if you have fine hair like me as there's no need to worry about anything too rich weighing it down and making it appear greasy. After using these, my hair feels soft and gently cleansed. I wouldn't say that it looks significantly healthier or shinier than when I use regular moisturising hair care products, but I still appreciate the fact that these are free from parabens and other nasties, and packed full of gorgeous natural ingredients like almond and avocado oils which are so beneficial to hair and scalp health.

Next up, the Lavender Hybrid bubble bath. Now I love a good bubble bath, especially with aromatherapy products. It's one of my favourite ways to wind down in the evening. I've always loved lavender for its amazing power to calm - I can literally feel myself unwinding as I breathe it in - so I was really excited to try this product. As you can see, it makes beautiful bubbles.

Just like the shampoo and conditioner, the main thing that strikes me when using this product is how light it feels on the skin. The first time I used it, I couldn't really smell the lavender, so after that I used a much more generous amount. I could definitely smell it then, although I think it's meant to be more of a delicate fragrance than a heady one. I imagine a lot of people might prefer that. Personally, I quite like my aromatherapy products to punch me in the face with scent! Even so, I still thoroughly enjoy using this. Palmarosa and clary sage are combined with the lavender so your skin feels clean and hydrated when you step out of the bath.

All in all, I'm impressed with Maple Holistics as a brand and would certainly continue to use these products, as well as experiment with some of their facial skincare. As some one who is allergic to at least one chemical (PPD in hair dye - you can read about my experience here if you're interested) it's great to know that there are companies out there pursuing a more natural way of doing things and creating lovely and effective products as a result. If natural is important to you for whatever reason then you're probably going to love this brand.

Have you tried anything from Maple Holistics? What are your thoughts on natural beauty products?

  2. I love finding sulphate free shampoos that lather up. I never feel like my hair is clean enough if it doesn't! While I don't have many natural beauty products, I'm always interested to read about and try them. They don't look like they ship to Australia which is a shame! x

    1. Ah that is a shame, but you never know in the future! I agree with you about the lathering up - I know it's only psychological but it really makes a difference! x

  3. I have seen them around a lot and would love to try them, as I try to avoid Sulphates in my hair care. Need to check whether or not they ship to Germany for a reasonable price.

  4. The shampoo and conditioner sound lovely, I'm been using more natural hair care products lately as I find sulphate in shampoos leave my hair so dry! I use the OGX range and they smell so good :) Thanks for sharing your review Kate.

    1. Ooh never heard of OGX, will have to check them out. I think that sulphate free is probably the way forward, even though I've not experienced any problems as a result of sulphates. If you know something is better for you it makes sense to use it! x

  17. I love when aromatherapy is really intense too when it comes to the scent. I currently use Dr Bronner's lavender and eucalyptus shower gels and I love them! I have never tried this brand but the products sound lovely. Xx

  18. OMG, this is the third review that I've read just today on Maple Holistic! LOL! I like that you tried the bubble bath because I haven't read any review on it so this was a refreshing read. I am like you, I like my aromatherapy bath products to punch me in my face...I mean, it kind of defeats the purpose if it isn't right? LOL!

  25. I just finished off my Maple Holistic Lavender bath soak and the lavender scent is very prominent, which I adore, which is also how I like my products as well.
