Organic Beauty Week with The Soil Association Part 2
If you missed yesterday’s post on Organic Beauty Week and The Soil Association, click here to catch up.
In the post I explained the certification standards of The Soil Association and shared some of my favourite Soil Association-certified brands. Now, I am sharing the rest of them!
Soil Association Beauty Brand #6 – Lucy Annabella
This is a brand I am very excited to be stocking on my US venture naturalbeauty.com – it’s a superb range of products that are so luxurious and indulgent. Right up my street! The aromas, the textures, the packaging, everything about them is so desirable! Founded by Colleen Harte, Lucy Annabella Organics is the creation from Colleen’s love of natural and organic beauty ingredients and her drive for perfection.
No reviews as yet on Biteable Beauty, but they are coming soon. In the meantime, check out the Lucy Annabella Organics website.
Soil Association Beauty Brand #7 – Neal’s Yard Remedies
I couldn’t believe I forgot to mention this brand in my tweet during #beautybabble ! How could I when I am such a sucker for their Frankincense skincare collection. The fisrt Neal’s Yard Apothecary store opened in 1981, in 1991 Neal’s Yard Remedies became the first health and beauty company to be certified by the Soil Association, in 1999 they launched the first EDTA0-free certified organic soap, in 2002 they launched the first organic skincare accredited by the Soil Association, and in 2010 they launched the first certified organic beauty collection of makeup. As you can see, Neal’s Yard is stooped in organic history!
Soil Association Beauty Brand #8 – Nourish
A brand I am relatively new to the party for, but I love what I have tried so far! Founded by Dr Pauline Hili, a specialist in organic skincare and the science of botanicals. The range utilises biodegradable ingredients, plant extracts from organic farming, all ethically sourced and with only natural fragrances.
Soil Association Beauty Brand #9 – Pai Skincare
Next up we have a range that has made a range of skincare, suitable for senstive types, something both desirable and an absolute pleasure to use. Sarah Brown set out on her Pai Skincare mission whist suffering from skin conditioner urticaria, a condition where an itchy rash suddenly appears on the skin. All of Pai’s products are formulated with sensitive skin types in mind, and their team of in-house chemists at Pai’s west London premises are constantly testing the latest bio-active plant ingredients so that Pai can continue to develop high performance products with no compromise on purity.
I’m currently using their Royal Jasmine & May Chang Body Oil which I love! It’s superhydrating and a little goes a long way! Read about their Biteable Beauty of Beauty Award Winning Lotus & Orange Blossom Bioaffinity Toner and Pai Age Confidence Facial Oil with Echium & Amaranth here and Pai Rosehip Regenerate Oil here.
Soil Association Beauty Brand #10 – Pinks Boutique
Pinks Boutique was born out of the meeting of Luke Sherriff, a human scientist, and Kirstie Allen, a historian, who first met at Oxford University. As their careers blossomed, Luke as a pro rugby player, Kirstie as director of Pinks Training Academy, their interests began to overlap. Luke turned to organic food for his body, and Kirstie began to explore the world of organic beauty products. Both share a love of Asia, and the influence of this continent shine through I the beautiful products that are Pinks Boutique.

Soil Association Beauty Brand #11 – Therapi Honey Skincare
I have only tried one product from the Therapi Honey Skincare range, and that was a sample of the Lemon Myrtle Honey Cleanser, read my review here. Founder of Therapi, Tanya Hawkes, has a love affair with bees, is a beekeeper, and the brand donates at least 5% of profits to bee charities and conservation projects.The products utilise skin-loving honey, propolis and beeswax.
