I came across a product called Depth . I have to admit I’m one that, the look of the container is usually what catches my eye first. These beautifully simple, water tone containers introduced me to a product that has much more to offer than just being visually appealing on the outside.
Depth is an environmentally responsible company created by a Marine Biologist and a Business man who worked in the natural products industry. Their story is actually very nice. You can read it here: About Depth.
And those eye catching bottles I was telling you about, there’s a story there too. The bottles are made from 50% recycled materials. The artwork on the bottle is silk screened using only what is needed to create the design. You can read more on why the bottles are shaped the way the are and other interesting facts here: http://www.depthbody.com/design.aspx
I really wanted to try these products. Depth was so kind as to send me a few products to review. I received Depth Shave Cream in Sea Berry scent, Depth Body Wash in Mangrove Citrus, and Depth hand and body lotion in Bay Coconut.
Depth Body Wash in Mangrove Citrus—I just had to try them as soon as I received them. The first one I tried was the Depth Body Wash in Mangrove Citrus. I liked that it had a pump to dispense the body wash. The scent of the Mangrove Citrus was very natural. It’s not as sweet smelling as many other citrus scented products I’ve tried. It’s more like cutting into a fresh orange, that natural citrusy fragrance. The body wash lathers well with my loofah. The body wash left me feeling clean and fresh. The bottle states that the body wash is made “with therapeutic, wild botanicals from the sea. 70% organic, 100% vegetarian, artificial color free, paraben free, SLS free, no animal testing, artificial color free, and phthalate free.”
Depth Shave Cream in Sea Berry—Next, the shave cream in Sea Berry scent. I have to admit I was skeptical of the performance of the shave cream when I first squeezed the small quarter sized dab onto my leg. I spread it over my skin. If felt more like lotion for the shower. A thinner consistency. The sea berry scent is very subtle. If you are not one for strong scents, then this may be the scent for you to choose. After drying off from the shower, my legs felt moisturized already. No irritation from the shave. The shave cream bottle states that it is 80% organic, 100% vegetarian, just like like the body wash.
Depth Hand and Body Lotion in Bay Coconut—Lastly, the Bay Coconut scented hand and body lotion. This may be my favorite of all the products. Pumping the lotion into my hand it felt like it hand a very smooth, almost gel like texture. I used it all over. My skin felt so smooth and moisturized. My lower legs for whatever reason get very dry. This gave my legs a touchable, supple look. The Bay Coconut scent may be my favorite scent of all three. All the scents I tried are natural. Not too sweet or over-bearing. The Bay Coconut is no exception. The scent is NOT Pina-Colada-ish but rather what I imagine a fresh coconut freshly cracked open would smell like.
If all this wasn’t enough to make you interested in Depth already, the also support Camp Sea Lab, a non-profit organization in Monterey Bay, CA that provides marine experiences for under privileged children. Read more about how your purchase helps here: Depth and Camp Sea Lab

Here are several places you can buy Depth products:
My review summary: At an average cost of $9.99 typically I would say it was a little pricey for me. However, the products work well, the company is environmentally proactive and a portion of the of the sales goes to Camp Sea lab. This is worth spending a couple extra dollars on. You can feel good knowing your helping the environment and giving back.
