Voted Tatler magazine's international spa of the year for 2009, Cowshed is luxurious skincare line originating the eponymous spa at Babington House located in Somerset just outside London. Don't forget your Hunter wellies and Barbour vest which are the requisite uniform here.
The original spa was launched in 1998 and named after the building's former occupants. Founded in the philosophy of premium 100% natural essential oils all ingredients are organic, wild-crafted and fair trade botanicals with minimal use of preservatives. The products do NOT contain any parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates or artificial dyes or fragrances. There are no animal products in the ingredients except for organic beeswax and wildflower honey. Every product's ingredients are sourced from the original walled garden at the original Cowshed spa in Somerset. We also love the cheeky product names like "Moody Cow" and "Knackered Cow".
Our favorite picks from the Cowshed (it was hard to pick only a few!) collection include: Cowshed Wild Cow Evening Body Wash. The Wild Cow Evening wash is made with a refreshing re-hydrating mix of lavender and rose infusions and pure essential oil of lavender made from herbs grown in the walled garden at Babington House. Other faves include "Moody Cow"- Balancing Bath and Shower Gel as well as "Udderly Gorgeous" Cooling Leg and Foot Treatment. Lastly, you'll want to indulge in the Knackered Cow Relaxing Soap Bar which is triple milled to a smooth luxurious texture leaving skin soft and gently scented with the delectable Knackered Cow fragrance.
