The story of Sheffield Skincare Company starts back in 2001 when I studied herbalism and aromatherapy at Sheffield Collage. I gained my NVQ 2 qualification and began using herbs, oils and essential oils in my every day skin care. At this stage my application was just a hobby and I made many creams, potions and other skin care products for friends and family especially at Christmas; as there is nothing like a handmade gift to let someone know you love them.
After many comments from people telling me they loved the products I was creating, I decided to sell them commercially. Many a late hour has been spent in my kitchen, melting, mixing, stirring and testing to create the 100% natural unique products you see on my website.
In September 2015 we opened our little shop in Crookes High Street. This has given us a great opportunity to get our products out there and to allow people to come in and try out our products. Our shop has also allowed us to move into providing a wide range of base ingredients for those people who like to make their own skincare and we have a wide selection of bottles and jars for you to create your own unique products.
Our skincare classes are going amazingly well you can book on to these via website. During these classes you will learn how to make a specific product, learn about safe production and safe amounts of ingredients to use as well as the benefits of specific ingredients for your skin.
I have been concerned for a number of years about the harsh chemicals that are found in many large commercial skincare products. Our skin is the largest organ in the body and needs to be taken care of. Harsh detergents, artificial preservatives, alcohol and other nasties should not be used on the skin. My difficult search to find all natural products for a reasonable price was another reason why I created my wonderful facial skin care range.
My mission when I set out was to create products that are all 100% natural and my promise to you is to always stick to that mission. I am very proud of the products I have created and really look forward to sharing them with you and developing new products too.
