Our resolution for the year ahead is to be more mindful of our health, happiness and wellbeing, and what better way to start than by discovering more about all-natural skincare and candle brand Nathalie Bond Organics.
How did your business come about, Nathalie?
When I fell pregnant with my first born, Alfie, I became really aware of the concerns around the various chemicals contained in beauty products and candles. As an avid candle burner, I was intent on finding a solution! Andy, my business partner and husband, suggested that we try making our own organic range of candles, and so began our journey.
Where are you based?
In the beautiful peak district, Sheffield to be exact. Our business operates from home, we have a workshop and a garden office at present.
Describe the design and making process.
All our products are produced by hand from start to finish using 100% natural and organic ingredients that are not only effective, but pretty good for the planet too. Our cold processed soaps are the lengthiest product to make; the curing process can take up to six weeks!
Do you have a favourite product?
I love our Peppermint & Eucalyptus scrub, it’s so invigorating and fresh. It’s particularly great for skin as it exfoliates and moisturises at the same time.
What’s next for you?
The whole premise behind our brand is stripped back beauty and fragrance so we’ll never be a company that offers hundreds of products, but we’re planning some additions to the range for the New Year. Watch this space!
Did you make a New Year’s resolution?
To work saner hours!
Sum up your creative style in three words.
Colourful, homely and quirky.
