Organic Skincare Goes Beautifully British

by on 05/04/2011

At the Organic Skincare and Health show this year, London’s Olympia was a hive of activity with brand new organic skincare brands jostling alongside the older brands.

Natural Empathy, a Northumberland skincare brand founded in October 2008, which loving brands its products in British style, uses locally grown extra virgin rapeseed oil in its organic products. The founder, Phil Stuckey says “We believe that in Britain we should make things, and not simply be a shop window for other countries. By supporting British growers, we keep down our ingredient miles, understand the provenance of our ingredients better, and reduce our impact on the environment.”

A few organic newcomers on the block were showcased, once again proving that the organic skincare market continues to be a multi-million pound market despite the economic downturn.

If you’re an organic skincare fan like me, you’ll know that most of the more seasoned brands, like Dr Haushka and Jurlique, that have dominated the market for years are foreign climes where it is evident there is an abundance of natural ingredients that are carefully sourced and go into the various products we use.

However, it was inspiring to see a homegrown brand, Beautifully British, taking some pride as a natural newcomer.
