With ethics and morals at the heart of this wonderful small family business, husband and wife duo Mary-Anne and Rob began creating their handmade skincare in 2011 with a passion for entirely organic, vegan and natural products after making the leap to quit their jobs and create a sustainable business.
They believe that sustainability and the health of our precious planet and all of its inhabitants are at the core of every decision that they make, which is why they built a home studio in rural West Wales to turn their dreams into a reality.
A fellow vegan, Mary-Anne had led a plant-based lifestyle for several years before branching into skincare, already appreciating the many benefits of living an organic lifestyle. She recognised that many beauty products, which claimed to be natural and organic, were simply cleverly disguising their chemical ingredients whilst shamelessly using plastic packaging and so she set upon creating a skincare range that could be 100% organic, natural and vegan-friendly too.
It was important to Mary-Anne that all of their product range is supplied in glass jars or aluminium containers with refills offered wherever possible in compostable bags. As their family business has grown, winning multiple awards along the way, the married duo always consider every aspect of their impact on the planet and aim to tread as lightly as possible by only using recycled and biodegradable cardboard for all of their product packaging.
Furthermore, their labels are printed in-house on recycled paper, their printer ink is non-toxic, they use paper tape and not plastic to secure their boxes and packaging, have recycled waste paper shredded to use as void filler and any packaging that is unable to be used by them is kindly passed on to a number of other local businesses to use instead.
Retail outlets and customers alike can return their empty glass jars and receive a 50p credit on their next purchase, with the business also donating to their local food bank and supporting a number of animal rescue and ethical charities through their sales.
With so much love, care and consideration going into this beautiful skincare range, it is clear to see why this small family business has won so many awards and continues to go from strength to strength. Their skincare is amazing and I couldn’t recommend it more highly for sensitive skin and food intolerances.
I find that my skin is more easily irritated in the summer from heightened sun exposure and dryness through heat, which teamed with sweat and clothes chaffing predominantly on my arms and shoulders, leaves me feeling irritated and itchy throughout the day. I also have hormonal acne breakouts to my face during menstruation and in the past have over-cleansed and dried out my skin in an attempt to combat this to no avail.
The combination of scrubs and body butters that I have here cleans my skin and removes oily residue and blockages to my pores, leaving my skin silky smooth with little need for reapplication, even on hot days. This is the first time that I’ve used a deodorant powder before and have found it to be incredibly effective with the most beautifully refreshing fragrance of rose geranium and lemon.
I wear a small amount of makeup, although not everyday, which after a few hours can exacerbate my oily nose and dry out the sensitive skin underneath and around my eyes, however the organic orange and grapefruit face cream combined with the lavender facial cleanser and organic rose geranium eye and face cream have really helped to tackle these symptoms for me by leaving my skin far fresher, feeling more clean and moisturised without turning greasy throughout the day.
Just a small amount of these products go a very long way and so I like to use the moisturisers, creams and oils either directly before bed to wake up to soft, plump and dewy fresh skin, or an hour or so before applying my makeup for a more natural and consistent coverage.
Not only do these products keep my skin in such great condition and smell amazing, but the eco-packaging also looks beautiful on my cabinet and is a wonderful daily reminder of the kindness, consideration and hope within this world. I find Heavenly Organics Skincare and their journey so inspiring and uplifting and will certainly be buying gifts from their store for all of my friends and family so that they can appreciate and experience the many benefits of it too.
