You’ve probably drunk a cold brew or two during the course of your life, but have you ever thought about applying beer to the outside of your body? Recently, we were thrilled to discover a vegan body care line that utilizes freshly brewed craft beer as a main ingredient. The magic additive is barley — jampacked with B vitamins, proteins, and minerals that are great for your skin and hair. We purchased Broo shampoo at one of our local supermarkets and couldn’t wait to get home to try it! We were not disappointed. This company is a great find!
The attractive website, www.broo.com, tells Broo’s story and showcases their extensive line. Start with the Moisturizing Combo of Shampoo and Conditioner (on sale for $16.00 as of July, 2019). These shea butter-infused products contain hints of ylang ylang, geranium, and lavender. They’re unbelievably rich and creamy and smell fantastic! No, you won’t even catch a whiff of beer — just a delicate, sweet scent that will linger for hours. Color-safe, pH balanced, vegan, and free from sulfates and parabens. The shampoo and conditioner exceeded our expectations. You’ll love them, as well.
Need a good hand cream with lasting emollient powers? Well, who doesn’t? Try Broo’s Connect Touch Screen Hand Cream ($8.00). Jasmine, lime, shea butter and butterfly bush extract combine to make this product a sure winner. The 100% natural scent will excite you, as well as the long list of what you won’t find in this item (or any of Broo’s other offerings, for that matter) — silicones, parabens, dyes, artificial colors, PEGS, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, phthalates, etc. Nothing but pure, wholesome ingredients! Plus, beer! You can’t go wrong with that.
Broo’s Reboot Aromatherapy Lotion ($9.00) boasts a cornucopia of relaxing scents, including bergamot, litsea cubeba fruit, and cedar essential oils. It’s infused with the power of barley, which imparts a boost of B vitamins to the mix. A little dab is all you need to hydrate your skin and send you to a calmer place. This product is made to the same high standards as Broo’s other offerings. Great quality for a reasonable price!
It’s easy and fun to order from the website, but if you don’t want to wait for a package to arrive in the mail, you can check out the “store locator” link for brick-and-mortar outlets near you. Everything Broo manufactures is vegan and cruelty-free, so you can purchase everything they offer with complete confidence. And we guarantee you won’t smell like a brewery afterwards!
