BEST BEAUTY ADVICE

Don’t be afraid of oils! For some reason we have become ‘scared’ of oils - particularly those of us with oil-prone or combination skin - and the tendency is to try and strip or dry out the skin, which only makes your skin go into overdrive in producing oil to compensate. Put like with like, and use oils that suit your skin type. So for example grapeseed oil is lightweight and full of antioxidants, or coconut oil helps fight bacteria and inflammation.

DESERT ISLAND PRODUCT

I’d have a to pick a toothpaste; Geo Organics natural toothpaste.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOUR BRAND?

So much! We’re currently working with an amazing graphic designer on a project that we’re hoping to have a big relaunch for towards the end of the year. I’m really passionate about growing our team by giving local people opportunities, and helping support charitable causes at the same time too.

TAKE ACTION AT HOME

• Waste not want not - don’t automatically chuck everything out (‘non green’ items, such as chemical bathroom cleaners etc) as this is wasteful and contributing to the problem even more! Use up what you have, and then switch to green brands/products.

• Ditch the disposables, whether that be disposable razors, or wipes (and don’t believe claims of biodegradable toilet wipes).

• When it comes to towels, try to source/use organic cotton or - even better - bamboo fabric towels.
