3 products shortlisted in the prestigious 2018 Free From Skincare Awards!
In our best year ever, our Cypress and Sage Shampoo, Pure Organic Lotion and Conscious Man Absolute Shower have all been selected to go through to the final of this years 2018 Free From Skincare Awards!
This is an extremely competitive event so it is brilliant news that we have 3 products shortlisted. The awards celebrate and encourage skincare manufacturers to create products that exclude many of the allergens, chemicals, fragrances and artificial additives associated with skin and health concerns. They also take into account ethical and environmental worries, which may appeal to those looking for purer or more natural cosmetics and products for their skin. Visit our chemicals to avoid page for more information.
Each accepted entry is initially submitted to a number of experienced Beauty Bible testers to undergo a rigorous month of ‘real life’ testing. Feedback is collated and used to draw up a Shortlist, which then go forward to an expert panel of judges. They choose products to receive bronze, silver and gold ‘medals’ within their categories.

Celebrated author and columnist Susan Jane White features our moisturizing creams in a fabulous article called ‘Winter Skin Food‘.
‘Any of Conscious Skincare’s range will do the trick for wintry months. They are called moisturisers, but that’s an understatement! They behave like a supersonic balm in my opinion’ writes Susan. She tested a number of our creams in 2017 and says ‘Every pot was licked clean. I’m certain you’ll love them.’ Find out more about Susan Jane White.

We have been working very hard to ensure our entire Organic Skin Care range is suitable for Vegans. We are delighted to be Vegan Approved by both PETA and the Vegetarian Society.
The Vegan Approved stamp given by these organisations is really important to us as it helps grow the range of products available to the Vegan market and gives confidence to our customers.
Please note that although 99.9% of our skincare is suitable for Vegans, the Grapefruit, Lemon & Cedarwood Shampoo is not. This is because it contains Honeyquat.
However, the Pure Shampoo and Cypress and Sage Shampoo are both Vegan friendly alternatives.
Visit our Vegan page for more information.

We love the work that Naturewatch Foundation do on animal welfare. Animals cannot voice the cruelty and suffering they endure.
Naturewatch Foundation is a registered charity that has been speaking out on behalf of animals for over 25 years by:
- Campaigning peacefully against animal abuse
- Lobbying to improve animal protection legislation
- Raising awareness through education
Rebecca jumped at the opportunity to write a guest blog for Naturewatch because the protection and advancement in welfare of animals is at the core of our philosophy.
She writes ‘I remember vividly the moment when I first learned about vivisection. I was 13 years old, sitting on the bus to school when my friend told me about her dad who worked at a large chemical company. My eyes widened in total disbelief, as they still do now, some 36 years later when I see that animal testing is still being carried out, like some macabre Victorian pastime….’
You can also read The Compassionate Shopping Guide which is provided by Naturewatch Foundation. The guide helps you to choose cruelty-free products which can help influence companies to acheive a better animal testing policy.
It is fabulous to have our Cleansing Duo Gift Set featured in this article on ‘Fair Trade October‘ by Second Opinion Magazine.
Highlighting fair trade around the world is such an important issue. The rights of workers are often overlooked in our fast-paced commercial world, where disposable and cheap goods are the choice of many consumers.
This gift set is featured in Second Opinion magazine because of its wonderful Fair Trade credentials!
What is really special is the organic cotton bag itself. Freeset is a Fair Trade and Social Enterprise scheme which gives new hope to the ladies in India who were formerly part of the sex industry. Each bag is unique with the lining handmade from different recycled sarees.
We have chosen this bag instead of a mass-produced item because it really makes a difference to lives!
Our Organic Cleansing Duo Gift Set includes 2 Award Winning products and a soft and re-usable Organic Cotton face cloth in this superb facial set.
