Environmental Ethos

We are determined to make Eco friendly soap as kind to the environment as we can to support wildlife and the climate. It is also important to us that our customers can share in this goal. That is why we strive to reduce our environmental footprint during the whole process of making our soaps, from the ingredients we choose to the compostable packaging we use. 

Our Apiary

One of our first investments was in a small apiary, which we will develop over time.

The honey and wax produced by the bees will eventually contribute to our range of honey soaps and other  eco friendly soaps.At the same time, and in a small way, they will help us to reduce packaging and transport as we will not be buying in the ingredients.

The bees will also help with the pollination of  wildflowers, grasses, and trees as well as garden plants, fruit, and vegetables around the area.
We will be deliberately maintaining this as a small apiary to allow plenty of resources for the wild bees and other pollinators that are so important, and such a joy to watch.

skincareBOOtique will always look for ways in which we can improve in this area. The world is a beautiful and diverse place and we must all play our part to protect and support it. Sustainability is an important way of working for us.

100% Plastic Free

skincareBOOtique has also been able to set aside an area of land to ‘rewild’. It has been incredible to see just how quickly nature begins to take over.

From being a paddock used for grazing sheep, we have quickly seen changes in the area.  In excess of thirty trees have self seeded and produced small saplings, mainly oak and beech.

We have seen a hare in the field, and now regularly see a kestrel hunting above it, whilst the thistles provide a very real attraction to bees and other insects. Other welcome visitors have included sparrowhawks, a red kite and a grass snake.

Our soaps are packaged using shredded waste paper and cardboard for padding within the boxes. Thus reusing paper and packaging, and reducing the amount of recycling that is collected from us.

We use 100% recycled FSC paper for our product labels. The boxes that we dispatch our handcrafted soaps in are fully compostable, as is the tape that we use to seal the parcels.

Handmade in Wales

Our entire range of products is handmade in Wales from start to finish on the SkincareBootique farm.

We don’t use palm oil in any of our products. We never have, and we never will.

All SkincareBootique products are cruelty-free and not tested on animals.
