We thought it was about time we shared what we’ve been up to recently, and a little about how Fresh Naturals began.
We officially launched on 22nd July with a shiny new online store. Leading up to our launch date was months of product and ingredients research, supplier visits and product testing - who’d have thought having a relaxing soak in the bath could be classed as “working”?
But let’s start at the beginning…
We’ve always been so impressed by the fantastic quality and value available at small craft and gift fairs. These guys make gorgeous soaps, bath bombs, bath salts and skincare products purely for the love of their craft. And most impressive is the price – we found these products are generally half the price of the most budget natural and handmade beauty and skincare brands around.
That got us thinking – wouldn’t it be great if there was somewhere you could buy amazing quality and great value products from these independents in one place. With a guarantee they’ve been tried, tested and are completely safe. Where you can clearly see all the ingredients without needing a degree in Cosmetology to understand them, and most importantly - they don’t make your bank account cry!
Plus, if you’re looking for certain products (such as 100% Natural, Vegan Friendly, SLS and Paraben Free, Organic or Fragrance Free), you can easily find them.
So off we went...
Each one of our suppliers make their products from scratch, by hand, using only the finest quality ingredients. Lovingly handmade in small batches, and predominantly sold at small craft fairs, markets and independent gift shops – we’ve snapped up some real exclusives for our website.
We’ll be telling you more about our suppliers and how we select them in a future blog post, so look out for that coming soon!
Fast-forward 6 months, and here we are with our shiny new site...
It seems quite a lot of people agree with us – natural and handmade products shouldn’t cost a fortune. There are so many amazingly talented skincare and soap makers around the country, why pay more for a luxury brand and fancy packaging?
We’ve been overwhelmed by the fantastic feedback we’ve had so far. From our very first customers, to beauty bloggers, competition winners on social media, friends, family and even the nice lady in the post office. You can read some of our reviews here.
