Skincare products that actually work
I believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to skincare products.
Your skin is one of the most important organs and what you put on it really does matter.
Every product I make has gone through months of testing to ensure that they perform perfectly.
I refuse to compromise on quality, meaning you will often find ingredients normally reserved for the luxury skincare brands.
Handmade in every sense of the word
All of the range is handmade in small batches.
I have deliberately chosen not to employ anyone else, nor to use large scale machinery, even though this would double or triple production.
So why might that be? As I mentioned before, quality is everything.
Small batches ensure that I oversee every single step of the process.
Ingredients are measured, mixed and poured by hand. Every product is then packaged and labelled individually.
If something doesn't meet my high standards, then it won't be making its way to you.
Who Am I?
Sadly I am no longer a spring chicken, but I still live life to the full, working full-time in the business, talking long, albeit slower, walks each day with my dog, Molly, and curling up with a good crime thriller in the evenings.
A few years ago after a health scare, I started to worry about some of commercial body products I had been using. There was a lot of publicity at the time about the potential toxic effects of some ingredients on the market.
At that time, there were very few indie skincare companies and I couldn't find products that I was happy to use. So I thought, 'What the heck, I'll give it a go myself'.
I taught myself to make natural cold processed soaps through a process of trial and error. These early soaps were a bit 'rough and ready' but that didn't matter to me. What blew me away was the difference between my handmade soap and the commercial soaps which I had been using.
My quest for learning has continued and I'm currently enrolled on a 3 year skincare formulation course with the world leading Formula Botanica. So expect to see plenty of exciting new products in the future.
