Concentrated Showergels

Urtekram Brand - Midsona

A move towards sustainability – These showergels were particularly tricky – removing as much water from them as possible to concentrate the soap and yet be within organic certification.

The line resulted in nothing less than 4 scintillating aroma versions, all on the same base showergel – 1 bottle of 400 ml or 1 concentrated bottle of 100 ml? – your choice.

Face Masks

Urtekram Brand - Midsona

Four face masks developed for the Urtekram brand – 3 Minute Masks was an interesting task, having it dry in the time requested and making it skin compatible too.
