Best of Boston

2007 Best Bath and Body Supplies


In the world of cosmetics—full of synthetic chemicals you can’t pronounce and futuristic plastic packaging you can’t dispose of with a clear conscience—the soaps, scrubs, and other skin-care products from Sabon are a welcome change. And a fairly appetizing one, at that, since many of the ingredients (brown sugar, honey) are as at home in the pantry as they are atop the vanity. Much of the line comes in recyclable glass jars, and nothing is tested on animals. Human testing, on the other hand, is something else entirely: Customers are encouraged to sample liberally to find their favorites.
