About the company: Allira Naturals was founded by a mother and former nurse, she was inspired to start the line when she could not find products for her daughter who suffered from extremely sensitive skin and eczema. Kedie the founder of Allira is Australian and lived for a time with the Aborigines, which was also a big inspiration for her company naming it Allira after the aboriginal word that means ‘daughter’ and her product names are aboriginal as well.

They are very transparent with their ingredients, they are all listed on the site and they also have an explanation of the ingredients as well. The ingredients in the scrub check out pretty clean there is Benzyl Alcohol in it that’s used as a preservative, I called and checked on this and the Benzyl Alcohol meets Eco-Cert & COSMOS standards, its also NaTrue certified and Soil Association approved.

The Verdict: I really love this product its hard to find a body scrub for really sensitive skin and for people whom suffer from eczema, many scrubs contain sugar or salt and tend to irritate sensitive skin. This scrub contains gluten free oatmeal which is known for its healing properties for eczema and other skin conditions. I myself have eczema from time to time and I find this works really well on my sensitive skin. Its non-greasy yet leaves your skin soft and nourished after the shower. This scrub can also be used on kids, they do have a kids line as well but the products are virtually the same. Allira also has an Argan Oil Body Lotion called Teeangi Body Lotion that works well for sensitive skin.
Note: They donate 1% to the planet so that is always a bonus.
