At The Apothecary Room, all of our products are:
Made in Britain
Christine hand-blends our skincare products in her converted barn in Hinwick, Northamptonshire. They are made from 100% natural plant-based ingredients and all are vegetarian – in fact, almost all products are vegan and only those containing bees wax (a by-product from a honey producer in Norfolk) are not suitable for vegans.
We pride ourselves on sourcing our carrier oils and essential oils from reputable and ethical sources. We buy organic essential oils and floral waters where practical, and we try and buy from UK sources so reducing ‘oil’ miles.
Skincare products include lip balm, nail and cuticle oil, super balm (for hands, feet and body), facial oil, skin tonic, body oil, bathing salts/body scrub and beard oil. Check out our full list of natural skincare products.
Each formula and blend is tested on friends and family before we decide if we want to sell it. The potions have to do two things: they have to feel wonderful on our skin and they have to make us feel good too. Once a product has been developed it undergoes a Cosmetic Assessment for chemical toxicity. The recipes are sent to a certified chemist who checks that they are safe to use on the skin so that they meet EU regulations. None of our products, or their ingredients, are tested on animals.
Our products for the home include hand-poured soy wax candles, diffuser oils and room sprays, all of which are deliciously scented with essential oils.
