The consultancy says it was approached in January and asked to design a look for a new ‘functional benefit’ product. 

Moving away from Cowshed’s palette of black, white and muted colours, Slender Cow uses bright pink with a green accent colour.

Gilmour says that the new look is ‘a very different design aesthetic’ which will lend itself to ‘future functional product ranges’.

The range comprises three products: a Detoxyfying Body Scrub, Body Sculpting Serum and Extra Firming Body Butter.
