After a long history of Eczema, a chance meeting introduced me to a home-made industrial hand cleaner, this was in the late 1980s when all industrial hand cleaners where petro-chemical based, causing extreme short and long term effects on skin health, ranging from dry cracked skin to occupational Dermatitis, I like many others suffered because of the lack of high quality hand cleaning products.
Once we had developed a natural hand cleaner that cleaned the skin as well as anything on the market but without any harmful side effects and left the skin feeling supple and nourished, our journey began.
In those early years we were able to sell our natural products to companies like Rolls Royce, Silentnight Beds, Kone Escalators Sulzer Pumps and many many more.
We work very closely with Cosmetic and Industrial chemists and over the next 15 years we developed a range of Natural “Skin Friendly” moisturisers and started to look at other skin conditions that were causing stress and anxiety, Around 2005 we formulated a product that was particularly suitable and safe for people with Psoriasis, in particular, Plaque Psoriasis, Our product called Deep Skin Cleanser is remarkable helpful in reducing the symptoms of Plaque Psoriasis and making the condition easier to live with, because as most sufferers will know Psoriasis is incurable.
Both my wife and my daughter suffer from Psoriasis and so this is a product very close to my heart.
In around 2008 we managed to get some of our products listed on the NHS, although the prescribing of them is totally at the Doctors (GP) discretion.
We are continually developing new natural products designed to help with the major skin complaints Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and Dermatitis.
The product range that we have now has been put together after years of research and development, all of them have a specific complaint that they have been developed for.
We have a small team based here in the Beautiful Yorkshire Dales just outside Skipton, were we have been for the last 14 years.
Our manufacturing sites are based in Bingley just outside Bradford where the majority of our products are made and all of our Research & Development takes place, our other site is in the Midlands.
Most of our business takes place online, however we do have a physical presence in Skipton in the Mill Shop which is situated in Rope Walk behind Rackham’s.
Over the past few years we have developed links with Distributors overseas in countries such as China, Iran and Malaysia.
