Why Neal’s Yard Remedies?

Our skin absorbs most of the chemicals we choose to put onto it. If you eat organically why would you not have only organic products being absorbed into your system?

  • All of their products are Paraben free (Parabens are very cheap synthetic preservative chemicals produced in a lab). Parabens are fat-soluble so are more easily absorbed and more likely to accumulate in fatty tissue, for instance in the breast. Parabens have been found in samples of breast tumour tissue.
  • Neal’s Yard Remedies have been trading since 1981 and are a small, independent, British, family-owned company. They started trading in a small yard in Covent Garden are are now growing globally (Tokyo, Boston and Dubai).
  • Their products are not tested on animals.
  • Their products are 100% vegetarian (many are also vegan).
  • They are the leading name in ethical and organic skincare.
  • They were the first UK retailer to be certified as carbon neutral by the Carbon Neutral Company.
  • They were the first to achieve a Soil Association certification for organic non-food items.
  • They were the first certified natural health and beauty company in the UK.
  • They were the first UK retailer of certified organic essential oils.
  • Their anti-ageing range’s main ingredient is Frankincense. These products are what I use for my Luxury Facial treatments. During a recent study by Decleor (May 2012), Frankincense was found to increase the production of collagen by 119%.
  • Their products have been awarded the Best Organic Brand, Best Organic Product and Best Organic Range, to name but a few. In fact, they won 28 awards in 2010 alone.
