A little about us....
We trust you are faring well, as that is our sincere wish for you.
We are a Natural and Organic skin and hair care and candle manufacturing company based in the heart of Reading, Berkshire. From our little workshop all our products are handcrafted from scratch with love and thoughtfulness delivered into your various houses.
Our journey began a few years back after I discovered that nothing seemed to really for my skin. I decided to research some products on the market, as a result I found that some commercially made products were not what they promised to be, I became very uncomfortable and concerned about what I apply on my skin and consume internally. So, I embark on making my own soap and body cream in 2008, when I was at the university, using only natural and organic ingredients. I found this to be the way to go if I truly wanted to use the right products on my skin. Too many products out there on the store shelves have a lot of troubling artificial man-made ingredients/chemicals, that one begins to wonder what they honestly are. I also noticed that many products claiming to solve skin problems only do for a short period or do not work at all resulting in a wheel, creating more skin issues, hence making consumers buy more. In 2017, I decided to offer these products to the public using only organic and natural ingredients you and I will recognise and connect with. This decision resulted in lengthy studies, research to understand the chemistry behind soap making and the right natural and organic ingredients to use in making each soap, simply because no one should offer product they do not understand its chemistry. In long short no chemically, enhanced product can beat any product made using natural or organic ingredients mixed with a good portion of love.
All our products are freshly handmade and carefully prepared in small batches using only the purest and finest natural ingredients. The slow methods of production used for the soap makes it cure into perfect soap within 4-6 weeks. Our soaps are rich in lather, mild, moisturising and nourishing to the skin. We cater for both kids and adults, men and women and for all skin types.
To emphasis again that our products are handcrafted from scratch in the UK, using the purest and natural ingredients. Our essential oils are the purest, purchased in large quantities from reputable suppliers in the country, while some of the ingredients used for our products are made from scratch in our workshop for example our turmeric and cucumber powder, and same goes for some of our oils for example our dandelion oil and few others.
Our business thrive to be sustainable by using biodegrade packaging to make the world a tiny bit better. Our products are vegetarian friendly, ethical, and all our raw ingredients are cruelty-Free, SLS and SLES free, no paraben preservatives, not tested on animal but willing humans, hence non toxic.
In some cases, we use Melt and Pour soap base, which are basically natural or organic and SLS FREE: from artificial synthetic surfactants (foaming ingredients), such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or SLES.
We hope that you will find our products as rich and satisfying as we have made it to be.
Thank you for stopping by, we sincerely wish you the very best.
