“I have always been envious of people who knew what they wanted to do with their lives right at the start. I think it’s safe to say that I wasn’t one of those! I did a range of different jobs which were all great but never really fired me up. That was before I stumbled into skincare and I thank my lucky stars because I haven’t looked back since! I started working for an Australian company who were the forerunners of truly ‘natural’ skincare back in the 60’s and learnt a staggering amount of info about the industry. I was amazed to learn about the ingredients that find their way into mainstream skincare. I couldn’t believe that we are all so focused on what we were eating and drinking and our environment but at the same time unknowingly putting all sorts of nasties onto our skin. What we put onto our skin is absorbed into our systems in just the same way as what we eat (think about how nicotine patches work). So, I started building up a lovely list of customers who also loved natural products and used those original products in treatments and sold them as well. When that original range moved out of the UK I was faced with a dilemma. Search for a new range that I loved as much or take the plunge and develop my own products. I realised that over time my ingredient knowledge had grown and I benefited from lots of feedback from my customers on what they loved. I became more certain of what I wanted from my products and realised I didn’t need to compromise by using someone else’s. In the end it was an inevitable decision to go for it and create my own range. Once I had found the right organic skincare chemist to help me with the legal side of what can mix with what and in what percentages, the rest was history. The range has been tweaked and improved over time and what was going to be a small selection of creams has turned into a full professional range of 25 products, with more on the horizon. I am running a small business, doing what I absolutely love and now realise the value of all those jobs I did in the past and the skills I learnt from each of them. I can’t believe that the most productive and rewarding period of my life has started in my late 40’s! (other than hubby and kids of course) and I look forward to growing the business and helping my ladies (and gents) achieve strong beautiful skin”.
All our formulas contain at least 85% organic ingredients and are handmade by people not machines. They are packed full of the highest quality fruit acids, minerals and vitamins all choosen for their skin enhancing qualities. Do have a look at our ingredients page to find out more. All our formulas are PH balanced which is vital to maintain the skin’s natural defence system called the acid mantle. You can also see in the list below what is NOT in our products. We have left out anything that is harmful to animals, our environment and our skin. We have not included cheap bulking agents like mineral oils, petroleum bi-products and lanolin that are commonly used by mainstream brands for cost saving but that actually end up drying and sensitising the skin.
Free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, petroleum bi-products, lanolin, animal bi-products and any animal testing.
