We produce skincare and perfume from botanical sources on the Isle of Man. We utilise indigenous crops from sustainable sources and local algae, extracted and distilled on site.
Our perfumes are made from natural, ecologically sound and sustainable sources. Most are inspired by the beautiful mountains, glens and forests on the island.
Our skincare includes moisturisers, serums, elixirs and hydrosols. These are formulated to improve specific skin problems, including dry and sun-damaged skin, uneven complexions and sensitive skin. These are produced in small batches, several times a year, so our customers receive fresh products. This allows the active ingredients to work optimally, without the need for additional harsh preservatives (necessary when products spend years on shop shelves.) We distil and bottle our hydrosols within a few hours of harvesting and these form the base of our skincare products, to boost the botanical benefits.
We carry out our own locally run trials with panels of 8 to 10 individuals. We pride ourselves on being in step with current dermatological research. Our particular area of interest is elastin and collagen synthesis and repairing sun-damaged skin.
We are qualified and experienced in:perfumery, cosmetic chemistry, formulating, herbalism, aromatherapy, medicine and teaching. We are members of the Society of Cosmetic Scientists and partners of UNISEF Biosphere. Our products are effective and made locally from indigenous, sustainable, pesticide-free crops.
