My name is Barbara and I’m the founder of Essential Skin and Body Butters. I started making my own natural skincare products around 5 years ago as I couldn’t find anything on the market which would moisturise my skin properly. I’ve always had an interest in natural products and essential oils and have recently qualified as an aromatherapist. Over the years I’ve given my products to family and friends as gifts and they’ve all loved them. Last year I decided to start up in business but then found there were certain regulations I needed to follow so I had to take my products back off the market officially. After getting all the testing and certification requirements I started again in August this year. I firmly believe that good quality, pure skincare products should be affordable to everyone. All my products are freshly handmade to order and all ingredients are ethically sourced. They are sustainably packaged, everything can be reused or recycled will work with you if you have any questions regarding which products are most suitable for your skin type. Please feel free to contact me. 5% of all sales are donated to the BHF which is a charity I have supported for many years for personal reasons.
Baby Creams Made from pure, natural ingredients which will protect and nourish your precious baby’s skin, these creams have been specifically formulated. A little of this cream will go quite a long way and is suitable for use all over the body. They are available in a few options: 1) Newborn - 3 months Simply a mixture of natural butters and carrier oils to protect and nourish your baby’s skin. No essential oils are used in this formula as a baby’s immune system hasn’t fully developed until 3 months old and using essential oils before this could cause allergic reactions later. Use after bathing your baby to protect their skin. Available in 50ml or 100ml pots, these come ready gift wrapped in a green organza bag. Although the pot is plastic it is free of BPA and other harmful ingredients. I did not want to use glass in case the baby picked up the pot and threw it! 2) 3 months and over A mixture of pure ingredient butters, carrier oils and restricted carrier oils are used in this baby cream. Only a very safe dilution rate is allowed along with 3 specific essential oils for this age group.
Available in 3 essential oil options and 2 sizes in each:
a) Lavender and Chamomile This is a calming blend, useful if your baby is having trouble sleeping or feeling upset/anxious. Good for using after a bath before bedtime, it will nourish their skin and prepare them for sleep. Available in 50ml or 100ml size pots, these come ready gift wrapped in a green organza bag. Again a plastic pot for safety reasons. b) Chamomile and Sweet Orange This is a more uplifting blend, without being too stimulating. Sweet orange is a happy oil and can boost mood. Chamomile is good for calming inflammation so the two work together to provide a good all round cream for your baby’s skin and mind. I would recommend using this during the day rather than at night. Available in 50ml or 100ml size BPA free plastic pots for safety reasons and gift wrapped in a green organza bag. c) Sweet Orange Give your baby a boost in the morning, ready to start the day. If you’re taking your child to a playgroup, or other kind of class and you want them to be alert then this is the cream to choose. (It can also help to boost your mood too) Available in 50ml or 100ml size BPA free plastic pots for safety reasons and gift wrapped in a green organza bag.
