Amnesty and The SoapBox Project, West Cork came together to discuss a product that we could collaborate on and the result was these gorgeous Shampoo & Body Bars.
Skincare expert and crafter Delia, was inspired by the hashtag #donottouchmyclothes, a social media campaign within the Afghan diaspora that celebrates pre-Taliban dress traditions, and mourns the loss of that freedom. The traditional dresses are beautiful and multi-coloured and these influenced the creation of these very colourful bars.
There are four bars to choose from based around four themes:
Love - A floral blend of Jasmine, Sweet Orange, Rose & Sandalwood.
The essential oils give a heady floral combination to transport you to a summers evening in a peaceful paradise.
Organic Argan Oil has been added for a conditioning effect.
The gift set is decorated with a tiny rose and “Love” pendant.
