At Neal’s Yard Remedies, they’re driven by the passionate belief that health and beauty should be more natural, less synthetic. They specialise in a range of organic skincare and natural remedies.
They develop their products in their own laboratory, combining traditional organic plant extracts with the latest advances in green chemistry to bring you the most effective, natural and innovative range of organic health and beauty-care available.
They use a wide range of ingredients, but of course they take just as much care about those they won’t use as those they do.
When they formulate, they combine specially chosen plant-based detergents so that they complement one another, giving an effective yet skin-friendly cleansing action.
They don’t use any petrochemical-based detergent, neither do they use sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), which can irritate the skin. Instead they use detergents made from plant-based ingredients that are effective, yet gentle on your skin.
They never use petroleum-based ingredients, choosing instead plant-based oils, which can be similar in content to the skin’s own sebum. Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, they are easily and safely absorbed, assisting the skin’s natural functions and helping improve its condition.
Unlike food, you don’t keep their toiletries in the fridge, which means preservatives may be needed to keep them fresh. Often used to preserve conventional skin care, parabens can cause allergic reactions and have been reported to have estrogenic properties. They never use parabens. Instead they use natural ingredients with preservative properties, such as rose or propolis extract.
The word ‘parfum’ on an ingredient label can hide a multitude of synthetic chemicals, which can cause allergic responses. They don’t use any of them. With the boundless array of wonderful scents available from nature, they fragrance their products with pure plant essentials oils and essences chosen for their delightful aromas, as well as their therapeutic properties.
Their commitment to using safe, natural ingredients with a recognised therapeutic tradition creates products that are beneficial to both you and the environment. All their products undergo strict testing to ensure they’re safe and effective to use.
