My interest-turned-obsession with natural and organic products started over a decade ago. I took a spontaneous course in nutrition therapy and learned all about our body’s response to food. The phrase “you are what you eat” made more sense than ever, as I discovered how big of an impact food makes on our lives. From our ability to function, to our longevity, and our overall quality of life, natural and organic products really are the way to go.
There and then, I decided to go back to the basics. I decided to go back to nature.
I replaced processed foods with natural fruits and vegetables, and made sure that the meat I purchased was unprocessed. Needless to say, the results were incredible. And this is where my (healthy) obsession really kicked in.
My thought was that, if the food I was ingesting had an impact on my body, what about the products I was putting on my skin? And what I discovered was that the effects of skincare products are far more than just skin-deep. Not only do they penetrate into the multiple layers of our skin, but they can even go as far as the bloodstream.
And so, back to nature I went once again – replacing mainstream cosmetics with only the most natural skincare products I could find.
I started experimenting with natural oils and butters, creating my first oily serums and cleansers. And although they were effective in their purest form, these natural oils and butters were not always suitable to my skin’s evolving needs. Be it hormones or changing seasons, I soon realised that I needed an organic skincare range I could alternate through year-round.
I made it my mission to become a qualified formulator, so that I could better understand organic ingredients and their skincare benefits and properties.
Taking what I learned and combining it with my passion for natural and organic products, I created the Potion Organic’s skincare range. Today, my handmade skincare products contain only the most organic ingredients – and are created in small batches here in the UK. I source most of my organic ingredients from trusted local suppliers and only use COSMOS and Ecocert-approved ingredients in my formulations.
My new mission is to provide customers with natural skincare products that can really make a difference. Not only to how you look, but how you feel within your skin too.
My goal is to help you uncover and rediscover your natural beauty through natural anti-aging skincare that takes you by the hand and bring you back to nature. My handmade skincare products embody organic skincare, removing synthetic and harmful ingredients for good.
If you are what you eat, then you are what you apply to your skin. So, why not apply natural anti-aging skincare and reap the rewards you’re after?
Let’s get back to nature, together.
