INSPIRATION

Balance Me started at the kitchen table when we left behind careers in management consultancy and the luxury beauty industry, in a quest to find a better work‑life balance. We were both burnt out and this was evident from the tell-tale signs our skin was showing. We wanted to create natural skincare to help bring skin back into balance, solving skin concerns without creating new ones.

BEST BEAUTY ADVICE

Always wear SPF during the day. Your skin will thank you later for it.

DESERT ISLAND PRODUCT

Can we have two? We are really proud of our Vitamin C Repair Serum as it is a fantastic example of how we have been able to push the boundaries on what is possible in natural beauty thanks to the innovative advances in natural chemistry. It’s a light-weight serum with a smooth texture and fresh orange aroma that brightens and firms the skin. We’ve used a number of innovative ingredients to create this product including Stabilised Vitamin C which incorporates an enzyme to release the Vitamin C over a sustained period of time. This action enables more effective delivery into the skin reducing the production of melanin which causes dark spots.Our Stellar Balm is also a real hero product. This 100% natural, multi-purpose one pot wonders nourishes cuticles, soothes dry elbows and heels, tames frizzy fly aways, calms itchy sting bites as well as being the ultimate lip saviour.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOUR BRAND?

As we have been around for 14 years, the brand has evolved and really grown and there are lots of exciting developments coming soon to reflect this. And of course, we are constantly trying to improve our sustainability efforts as a business.

TAKE ACTION AT HOME

• Swap face wipes and cotton wool for an organic cotton cloth that can be washed and reused.

• Opt for eco-friendly cleaning products and put a recycle bin in your bathroom. It is so easy to recycle downstairs, but if you have an upstairs bathroom it is easier to recycle if you have a recycling bin up there too.
