Que Origin: Natural Shower Gels made with Essential Oils

Get $5 off your first order (code: SGVegan) of a brand new natural shower gel made with Essential Oils from Australia!

Today is the launch date (1pm) in Singapore for Que Origin, a shower gel that is made with entirely natural ingredients.

Que Origin is a completely new brand started from scratch with the aim to provide nourishing body care. The first product is the Shower Bath which can be both used as a¬†body wash and bubble bath. It is formulated with natural Argan Oil, infused with botanical extracts (grapefruit, raspberry, aloe vera) and scented with natural essential oils only. Numerous harmful chemicals have been excluded, making the process of formulation a challenge, but it was successfully achieved! ūüôā

Here is an image to show you what has been excluded in Que Origin shower gels:

Que Origin Free From List

Carefully selected essential oils from Australia are¬†transported to facilities with GMP for manufacturing in Korea. As such,¬†each and every bottle was made with the purest ingredients in an advance facility. So what’s exactly in the bottle?

So basically the base (1st 2 ingredients) of the shower gel is water and cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB), an organic compound derived from coconut oil and dimethylaminopropylamine.

This is the rating for CAPB from the EWG (Environmental Working Group) website:

Que Origin shower gel comes in 2 sizes:

Que Origin: 250mL, $7.90 (left) and 730mL, $14.80 (right)

I (together with the rest of you who voted on pricing) was surprised to learn that the price of the shower gels are very very reasonable!

250mL: $7.90
730mL: $14.80
Customise, 250mL*: $10.90 (more details to be announced soon)

Que Origin contacted me in mid Dec 2015 and I was excited to learn of this new brand that will be launching in Singapore.

Just 2 days ago, the package was delivered to me:

The cardboard box even had the Que Origin logo on it (not shown). Well, they got me hooked on my 1st impression. I will definitely enjoy my shower everyday! ūüôā

As seen in the featured image right at the top of the page, I received 3 x 250mL of each scent (Rose Geranium, Lavender and Lemongrass), of which the Lavender scent is personalised with the SGVegan logo on it.

It was an interesting experience as the shower gel when squeezed out, came out with bubbles. Mind you, its not foamy, but I suspect air bubbles so as to make it easier to lather onto the body.

Notice the air bubbles? This is from the Lavender shower gel.

I was really looking forward to the rose geranium and lemongrass scent as these are not usually found in the market.

The Que Origin shower gels all smelled like the actual essential oils, and I would say, guys would definitely like the Lemongrass. If you are looking for a more flowery scent for your female friend, Rose Geranium is the one. Or, if you want something less flowery but more soothing and calming, Lavender is the one to go for.

I like that when I shower with it, my skin feels much softer and moist! ūüôā

Oh, did I mention that you can personalise your gift to your friend in just 4 simple steps?
