We had lots of milk everyday from the girls and needed to find an outlet, this was how Marsh Valley (marshvalley.co.uk) was born.

To solve the problem we had of having lots of excess milk, Jessica did a quick internet search to see what products could be made from it. Soap was one of the options that came out on top as its natural properties were told to be very beneficial for skin conditions which appealed to us as Jessica suffers from psoriasis.

SELF CARE SECRETS

Both me and Jessica use our whole range of soaps religiously so much so that we don’t have anything else in our house! Jessica swears by using an exfoliating mitt with our bars which leaves her skin soft and refreshed, and now that we have our new shampoo range out we have total body cleansing.

BUSINESS PLANS

Recently we have just launched our new range of shampoo bars which have been in the works for 6 months now, these are already selling extremely well and is encouraging people to reduce the need for plastic bottles by using an eco friendly natural bar. We are hoping this success continues and would like to start work shortly on a range of body lotion and hand creams.

THREE WAYS TO BE MORE SUSTAINABLE

Choosing to use natural products is a fantastic thing to do not only for the planet but more importantly for your skin. When choosing these products try and source from a small independent company, to people like us who take great pride in there work this support lets us continue to do the thing we love!

Secondly stick with it, yes sometimes it may be a little bit more time consuming, or you may have to look after your bar after use but ultimately the benefits completely outweigh these and you will be thankful you made the swap in the end.

Finally spread the word! Don’t let other people miss out on changing there lifestyle to help the world.
