Let’s start by saying that my company is an independent business started in 2014 based in the cultural city of Liverpool.
In December 2011, I made a life changing decision after attending a free bath bomb & soap making course offered by FACE in Liverpool. This had inspired me to look for courses to further my knowledge in making these products to sell. Also l started learning to make natural skin care as a hobby.
A couple of years later, my son, Alessio started to receive chemotherapy for his Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. After the chemotherapy started, he developed psoriasis which was possibly caused by the treatment. Consequently, I decided to make natural “skin kind” products to minimise the psoriasis. I made different types of body butters and massage oils to relieve the psoriasis with great success, so much so that Alessio was discharged from the Dermatology department. The consultant said she will be sending me her patients in the future as she was amazed by the power of natural products on psoriasis!
The chemotherapy also caused hair loss and skin to be hypersensitive. At around similar time, my neighbour had just finished chemotherapy for her breast cancer. Therefore, she was desperately looking for a neutral pH shampoo as advised by the medical professionals. I said I could make one if she could provide me some information. “My new hair” booklet produced by a national charity was passed to me by my neighbour. This booklet provides information, advice and support for people experiencing medical hair loss. After a few trials, I finally created an ultra-mild shampoo and conditioner to encourage the development of healthy hair with the help of my trainer, Sarah Jane of “Soapschool” and Sarah Baron from “Of a simple nature”. Not long after using the hair care products, Alessio and my neighbour developed a full head of beautiful hair. More good news, my neighbour is in remission and she is doing very well. In terms of Alessio, chemotherapy didn’t work, so he has been put on the Anti-Tumour Necrosis Factor treatment, also known as Biological Therapy to manage his Arthritis for life. Some of the damage to his joints has actually been reversed slightly with this treatment, which is fantastic news!
That success led me to create more “skin kind” products tailoring for people with different skin types. However, I didn’t stop there and went one step further by creating skin and hair care, whereby one product suits most skin types. This was made possible because of my extensive knowledge on the potent powers of botanical ingredients on skin and hair.
I truly believe natural skin care products are the best and kind to the skin. Therefore, my company will always be committed to make the finest quality organic products without the high price tag. For people with hypersensitive skin, there is a good range of unscented skin care products.
Essentially this was only meant to be a hobby making products on the kitchen table, just like the inspirational late Anita Roddick of Body Shop, my role model. It has now turned into a business providing employment to several local people. This was only possible after I took a major risk leaving a well-paid job to focus on my loss making business in December 2015. Despite that, deep in my heart, I believe I can turn my business into a profitable one which will fund the future care costs for Alessio when I am not around. Not only does Alessio has complex medical needs, he also has severe Autism and Learning Difficulties, so he requires 24/7 hours support. Basically this business is for my son, Alessio, whom I love more than anyone in this world.
Finally, I would like to point out that my natural and organic skin care products have not been tested to treat or cure any medical conditions. Therefore, it is advisable that you consult with your medical practitioner beforehand for your own safety. However if you wish to use our products for any medical condition, please note that you do so at your own risk.
My main clients are from the beauty industry across England and Wales, as increasingly, people recognised natural & organic products are better than chemical based ones. In my company, we only make skin kind products using high quality ingredients.
