About us

Little Herbs skincare is made for concerned mums by concerned mums. 

Our skincare is free from:

  • chemical preservatives including parabens, laurates, Triclosan, etc.
  • colourings or synthetic aromas
  • mineral oils, lanolin or alcohol 
  • fillers or thickeners
  • any meat, fowl, fish or shellfish products
  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
  • irradiated raw materials

Skin absorbs at least 60% of what you put on it - so we keep wondering why anyone would put something on her/his skin that she/he wouldn't be willing to eat (okay, so skincare products may not tempt the tastebuds - but we think you know what we mean!).

We've been making organic botanical skincare for grown-ups at Great Elm Physick Garden for more than a decade. Two mums, with young children, started the company because we couldn't find good enough skin care. Mums still develop and make the products.
A while back, some friends who ran a baby shop asked us to work on a range for expectant mothers and babies: Little Herbs was born.
  • Little Herbs skincare relies on tradition, with modern science to back it up.
  • We use simple recipes, with ingredients that are good enough to eat. 
  • We favour the English country garden because we know we can rely on its produce, its history, and its ethos.
  • We love its herbs, flowers, seeds and bees which provide the best and the purest ingredients.
  • We ALWAYS use certified organic ingredients. 
  • We ALWAYS tell you exactly what is in each product.
  • Our Consultant Medical Herbalist checks each recipe, working in accordance with standards set out by the National Council for Medical Herbalists.
  • Little Herbs skincare is not tested on animals - only on willing volunteers.
  • We insist on similar standards from our suppliers.
