Intriguing Natural Extract
Our Absinthe Purifying Hand Care range benefits from an intriguing ingredient: Absinthe extract, otherwise known as wormwood or Artemisia absinthium. Shrub-like perennial, wormwood is a key ingredient in absinthe, the emerald-coloured alcoholic drink, helping to give the beverage its distinctive bitter taste. Known as the green fairy or l’atroce sorcière, absinthe has long captured the public’s imagination with its seductive air of danger.
LEAVES HANDS FEELING CLEAN, REFRESHED AND CARED FOR!
HISTORY OF ABSINTHE
The Ancient Egyptians used wormwood as an antiseptic remedy whilst the Ancient Greeks claimed that the plant could counteract poison.
First served in the Swiss town of Couvet in the late 18th century, early absinthe was hailed for its medicinal qualities.
Favoured by legendary bohemians for its supposed hallucinatory properties, absinthe inspired countless works of art, from Degas’s ‘L’Absinthe’ to Picasso’s ‘Woman Drinking Absinthe’. Oscar Wilde said it made him feel as though tulips were growing on his legs. And it’s believed that Vincent Van Gogh was addicted to the drink.
Publically associated with social disorder, absinthe was banned across much of 20th century Europe and the USA.

THE HEART INSIDE
The Absinthe Purifying Hand Care range contains Community Fair Trade ingredients including Community Fair Trade Shea butter, which comes from Ghana. Local women hand-harvest shea nuts, dry them in the sun and crack them to extract the kernels. These are roasted and ground into a paste to make the butter. Our trade with the Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association has helped to fund three medical centres and 10 nursery schools.
