Healthy eating is a huge part of wellness and healthy living. But it doesn't just end there! There are so many other aspects such as skincare, sleep and exercise. What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your body. Dig a little deeper into your everyday skincare products and you might find out that there's more nasty ingredients below the surface than you first anticipated.
After clearing out my make up and skincare drawer of all the nasties, I found myself going back to an old favourite of mine: Neal's Yard Remedies.
From deodorant to facial mist to make up to herbal teas, they do it all.
The principles and ethos of this company is something I really believe in and feel passionately about. If an ingredient isn't completely safe for you and the envirionment, they won't use it. They refuse to use synthetic fragrances, silicones, mineral oils, parabens, GM ingredients, propylene glycol, DEA, EDTA, nano, BHT or anything that is tested on animals. They were the first beauty skincare brand to get Organic certification from the Organic Soil Association.
All the products are handmade in the UK and the company has an eco factory in Dorset which is designed to be as green as possible.
An enduring classic, I've been buying Neal's Yard stuff for as long as I can remember and I'm so happy to see how popular it is becoming.
The flagship store in Covent Garden offers creams, potions, homeopathic and herbal remedies as well as flower and aromatherapy tinctures.
If you're looking for a natural and organic skincare brand then Neal's Yard is the place to go!
