At Neal’s Yard Remedies they believe that beauty, health and wellbeing should be natural, not synthetic. This belief has been part of our DNA since they first opened their doors, in a once forgotten corner of Covent Garden, London, back in 1981.
Today they continue to scientifically formulate and produce award-winning, ethical health and beauty products ourselves, using carefully selected pure organic and natural herbs, oils and extracts. The fabulous aromas in their products aren’t just nice fragrances, they’re natural essential oils and extracts, so they don’t just smell amazing, they actually enhance your mood while benefitting your skin.
Passion for purity, safety and efficacy is central to their formulations. Neal’s Yard Remedies use pure organic ingredients wherever possible, grown without harmful synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, and rich in naturally occurring antioxidants and nutrients. Organic ingredients have been shown to contain up to 69% more key antioxidants than those that have been conventionally grown*.
Equally important to what they put into their products is what we leave out. They never use GM ingredients, parabens, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances or colours, or many of the other ‘questionable’ yet commonly used skincare ingredients. We follow the Precautionary Principle when formulating our products. If they’re not completely satisfied an ingredient is safe, they’ll leave it out. It’s that simple.
To Neal’s Yard Remedies, the social and environmental cost of ingredients is more important than the price. By choosing to support organic, ethical, sustainable production and fair trade programmes, they believe they can be a positive force for change. They are one of the first beauty companies in the world to make skincare with Fairtrade ingredients, and have the world’s largest range of Soil Association certified organic health and beauty products.
