Since its birth in 1981, Neal's Yard Remedies has brought a holistic approach to health and beauty to local people and their communities. Committed to making beauty products with high quality organic, natural and plant-based ingredients, they source ingredients through ethical sourcing programmes including the Fairtrade Foundation.
All products are made in Dorset, England and approved by animal welfare bodies including BUAV and PETA. Neal’s Yard Remedies are passionate about the environment and actively support and promote organic farming. All ingredients are certified organic by leading bodies including the Soil Association.
Believing in safe cosmetics, the company uses no parabens, synthetic fragrances, GMO ingredients, silicons or minerals among many others. They are against animal testing and do not test any of their products on animals, instead employ an independent company that uses human volunteers to trial new products.
The company's continued commitment to animal welfare has been recognised by campaigners from PETA, the RSPCA; Neal’s Yard Remedies was awarded a golden rabbit by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection. They also support animal welfare charity FRAME, Traid, Friends of the Earth and Samaritans.
Neal’s Yard Remedies launched their Bee Lovely range in support of its Save The Bees campaign., along with their petition to ban deadly neonic pesticides. Throughout the campaign, the company raised over £45,000 which was donated to bee keeping and bee friendly initiatives all over the UK, helping to make a real difference in local communities.
This multi award-winning brand has many accolades to celebrate including, a 5 year running title as Best Organic Range from Natural Health Magazine, Best Ethical Brand from Sublime Magazine and multiple inclusions in the Beauty Bible, Anti Ageing Beauty Bible, Green Beauty Bible and soon to be released new Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible.
