At Neal's Yard Remedies, we're driven by the belief that health and beauty should be more natural, less synthetic

Is what you put on the outside of your body as important as what you put in it? At Neal’s Yard Remedies we believe it is. The skin is the body’s largest organ and although there is a persistent myth that it acts as a barrier to the world ‘out there’ – the truth is it is more like a sponge.  The things that you put on your skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream and from there into body tissues.

Choosing certified organic skincare means you want to avoid the toxic by-products of conventional farming such pesticides and fungicides. Organic standards also operate on the basis of the ‘Precautionary Principe’ – in other words, if in doubt leave it out. This means that many ingredients that have a question mark over their long-term safety – such as genetically modified organisms or nano-materials – are not allowed.

Choosing organic skincare is also an act of care for the environment. It is a vote for clean air and water and healthy soil. And because organic products tend to be made by small, independent companies – like ours – choosing organic skincare is a vote for sustainable, ethical business practices.

Many conventional products are made in large factories which are wasteful of energy and other natural resources. Their ingredients are largely derived from petroleum, or from other materials chosen according to how cheap they are. Supply chains pay little attention to the lives and livelihoods of producers, or to the impact on soil and air, or to the health of the end user. It doesn’t have to be this way.

For 30 years Neal's Yard Remedies has been at the forefront of developing high quality, award-winning products based on organic, natural and wildcrafted ingredients, fairly traded and produced in a carbon-neutral, eco factory in the UK. At every step along the line we believe in treading lightly on the planet.
Look on the label of your favourite products – if it’s just a confusing alphabet soup of synthetic ingredients, if it doesn’t tell story of health, sustainability and ethical business – then maybe it’s time for a change.
 
Company Ethos
It’s 30 years since we opened the doors of our first shop in Neal’s Yard, a once forgotten corner of Covent Garden, London. From the beginning we’ve been driven by a passion for transforming people’s lives, by empowering them to live more healthily through the power of nature.

Nearly every one of our award-winning, certified organic products – the largest range in the UK – is handmade in our eco-factory in Dorset, using home-grown and sustainably sourced, certified organic ingredients. To us, the social and environmental cost of ingredients is more important than the price. By choosing to support sustainable, organic harvesting and fair trade programmes, we believe we can all be a positive force for change. A change for the better.

At Neal's Yard Remedies, we're driven by the passionate belief that health and beauty should be more natural, less synthetic. This passion, and our firm belief that it's down to all of us to protect our precious planet, is at the heart of everything we do.

Neal's Yard Remedies is available at www.nealsyardremedies.com.
