It is now widely recognised that every chemical that touches your skin is absorbed into your body. We would love to say it isn’t true, but morphine patches, nicotine patches and HRT all tell the story of how drugs can be administered via absorption through the skin.
Many of the chemicals used in conventional body care products, are passed as safe, we believe it is simply safest to not use potentially harmful products at all and research the alternatives.
We read every label, and question every ingredient with our suppliers. After all that research we have chosen to stock in our shop: Urtekram, Weleda, Faith in Nature and Algaran Organic seaweed products. Everything for your skin and hair!
The most amazing range of soaps, Faith in Nature, Oleanat and Algaran rainbow scrub soaps. The House of Mistry Saponaria range is lovely if you like to avoid soap all together and need one product that does everything – Think camping and eco lodges.
We stock Natracare sanitary protection (very important, no bleach, no chemicals and our customers say ‘very effective’).
Eco friendly sun protection, after-sun creams and of course organic aloe vera gel, just the best for moisturising sore or burnt skin.
We think that you will find the perfect product for you and your family.
These products are firm favourites of our customers. The way they fly off the shelves speaks volumes. We love them here, not only because they are great products that really work, but also the ethics of this company are outstanding!.

If we do not stock your personal favourite then just ask, we are happy to order in any product that is available to us.
There are some different schools of thought regarding antiperspirants and deodorants. Some folks are concerned about the ingredients in main stream products, and the suggestion that they could be carcinogenic, and others about the mere fact that an antiperspirant actually stops a natural body process of temperature regulation and detoxification. We have a great range of deodorants, something for everyone, from the sporty types to the perfume free sensitive folks. Salt of the Earth even do a travel size crystal stick.
A healthy diet, which provides the vital nutrient needed for healthy teeth and regular visits to the dentist are the building blocks for a great smile and no toothache.
