Offering a “new” organic line of skincare in the US from the UK. With “no nasties”!

If you are interested in organic skin products from the UK where harmful chemicals are banned from personal products you may find these products from Neal’s Yard Remedies appealing. The company has been around for more than 30 years. I am a long time fan of their products, especially the Frankincense line. I used to buy it every trip to London but now I am offering it in the U.S.! It is not sold in stores in the US. You may order directly from the provided website and have it delivered to your door or I am happy to help answer questions or advise.

What’s not in our products

We believe that what you leave out of a product can be as important as what you put in. Here’s just a few of the ingredients you won’t find in any of our products, and why:

No silicones – they coat skin, and impede its natural function
No mineral oils – derived from petroleum, and have a tendency to block the skin
No parabens – these are linked to hormonal imbalances
No GM ingredients – not enough is known about possible long-term implications
No phthalates – it’s reported they have toxic impact on humans and animal life
No propylene glycol – derived from petroleum
No animal testing – unnecessary and cruel
No DEA – associated with known carcinogens
No EDTA – (powerful metal chelator), and doesn’t biodegrade readily
No acrylates – derived from petroleum
No nano – not enough is known about its long term implications
No BHT – linked to breathing and lung impairment
