Natural Skincare Products avoiding the use of palm oil, preservatives, synthetics, detergents and plastics.
We live in Mid Wales on our family farm.
We have experimented with homemade soap and cosmetics at home for a number of years. We have used these ourselves and the children have given as presents at Christmas and birthdays.
We decided to expand on this idea and take it forward starting our own family skincare business where we can to support our positive environmental ethos by avoiding the use of palm oil, preservatives, synthetics, detergents and plastics.
We package them in recycled/ recyclable / compostable packaging or tins to minimise any negative impact on the environment and utilise the increasing circular economy.
Martyn and myself make all the handcrafted products.
The two girls are the social media gurus and also help to cut the handmade soaps. They are good with young people, ideas, and themes. During busy times they are experts at packaging and ensuring your soap is dispatched on time.
Our youngest takes all the waste paper, cardboard that we and friends create and shreds it. We use this as the packaging that you will find in your box containing the soap.
We have set aside an area of land for tree planting, and rewilding.
We have also invested in a small apiary of honey bees, whilst taking care to encourage, and not crowd out, our native bumble and solitary bees and other insects.
We have won a Green Goal Award from UK Gov. Wales, Powys County Council, and Business Wales, which recognises our ongoing sustainability.
