Our Story

At Pip Natural skincare we want to be like little seeds of kindness.

Kindness to you, your skin and to nature.

Our passion is in finding the best combination of botanical and vegetable oils to create gentle and effective skincare.

Every oil has its own unique qualities, for example;

Oat is very soothing and helps to lock in moisture. Rosehip is full of healing Omega 3 and is thought to be one of the best anti-aging oils for skin.

Mix these oils together and add others that compliment and balance, and the creative possibilities become very exciting. It should be possible to make the optimum oil blend to support most skin types and help them cope with all the environmental challenges we face every day.

By making our own skincare and selling directly to our customers, we can create products at a fraction of the cost, still keeping the quality and effectiveness and ethical standards that we are passionate about.

Everything we sell has a safety certificate and is registered on the UK Cosmetic Portal, so you can buy with confidence.

Its true, you can’t beat the positive effects of good nutrition and drinking plenty of water but by using the best quality cold pressed or organic oils and avoiding the harsh chemicals found in so many commercial products, you are helping your skin to look its radiant and natural best.

Both Julie and myself are Dorset girls, born and bred. Julie grew up on a farm and I have spent most of my life living in rural communities.

This has instilled in us a love and respect for the natural world. I started Pip (Plant inspired Products) about 6 years ago and I asked Julie to come on board and share with me the soap making side of the business but she does so much more besides.

We have tried to create a balance in the type of ingredients that we use, choosing not to pursue the 100% Organic route to try to keep our handmade products more affordable.

So we use Organic oils where we can and we always use the best quality oils from suppliers who shares our sustainable and cruelty free ethos. Many commercial brands use about 90% water in their creams but we use about 60% water leaving lots of room for the beautiful, expensive, skin loving oils and butters. We love to sell directly to our customers, building those relationships and reinvesting in the business. We don’t believe in silly skincare promises, but quality products with realistic aims.

We hope you love the products as much as we do.
