As a Medical Herbalist, I blend our specialist plant-based ingredients into formulas for their natural benefits to the skin and body but also to support our overall well-being. Great care is taken in sourcing the highest quality, vibrant plant ingredients for our products and as much care in making sure the ingredients are organically grown ethical and from a responsible source*, in terms of fair trade and sustainability. I love British grown ingredients. They have a special quality to them and we source as many as we can for the beauty and heritage they give our products. Last year we started a project to grow a facial oil from scratch here in Dorset experimenting with the freshest ingredients has truly been an education for us and our skincare. Each recipe we make is independently assessed to comply to the highest standard of the 2013 European Union Cosmetic Safety Regulations and manufacturing good practice.
We never use any artificial colours or fragrances in our products as we believe nature does a far better job of making those; nor do we ever use any ingredients that have been tested on animals. We preserve our products naturally with a non-GM Soya derived vitamin E and other plant-derived ingredients. Our facial skincare products are hand blended and hand poured one by one with care so each product you receive has had the love it deserves which we hope transfers to you when you use them.
The soap bars are also made by hand to our unique, old fashioned recipe and hand stamped with our logo. After taking up to six weeks to cure, our scented soaps are then wrapped by hand in recycled paper and labeled with vegetable ink print and are a long-lasting joy to use every day.
Our first Enchanted Plants shop opened in Swans Yard, Shaftesbury, Dorset in July 2007 and we moved to a high street shop at 6 The Commons, Shaftesbury, Dorset in 3013. In mid-2019 with the birth of my second daughter, we are delighted to be hosted in the Wonderful Shop 'Willow' in Shaftesbury where we host our whole range. We are looking forward to developing Enchanted Plants into a blossoming artisan and locally homegrown skincare company in the years to come.
We hope you enjoy the products as much as we love making them.
