As a family, we have used essential oils and had an interest in natural health for many years. However, when I discovered myself pregnant in 2004, I began to look more closely at the ingredients of the everyday products we use on our skin; our biggest organ.
Most of what I found available were full of unnecessary chemicals. Everything we put on our skin is readily absorbed into our system, and harsh ingredients are often used to extend shelf life, making claims to improve the appearance of the consumer, often at the cost of our health!
Therefore, we set about as a family to try to avoid these chemicals - opting for natural ingredients in our skincare products. More recently, we then took the decision to create our own range of affordable Skincare, named If Skincare, using our daughters initials IF.
Our products are hand made in our lovely workshop in Cornwall, using quality natural ingredients sourced in the UK, including beeswax, honey, essential oils, and flower waters. They are all cruelty free and free from artificial fragrances, colours, parabens, Lanolin, SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) all of which can cause skin reactions.
We currently have a total of 15 products including divided into 4 ranges Skincare, Bodycare, Babycare, and Extracare. We are planning to bring you 3 new exciting products in the New Year!
