Win a Christmas gift box of natural skincare products

Annwyn Botanicals produces award-winning natural, responsibly sourced skincare products from Ebberston on the edge of the North York Moors, a little way from Scarborough.

Annwyn is an old Celtic word for “the Otherworld”. Our Celtic ancestors believed that in the Otherworld all good things came, or grew, from beneath the Earth. So Annwyn’s mission is to reconnect people to the natural world and to raise awareness of the importance of the ingredients they feed their skin.

Alice Lavin of Annwyn Botanicals says that as lifelong nature lovers, they are immersed in the natural world and care passionately about the wellbeing and preservation of every living thing.

The business’s products are formulated from natural and responsibly sourced botanicals, herbs and essential oils, with no harmful chemicals. Ingredients are sourced locally where possible and from fairly traded women’s co-operatives around the world.

All products are suitable for vegetarians and most are suitable for vegans. No product is tested on animals. The business has won two gold awards at the FreeFrom Skincare Awards as well as other skincare awards.

The business also strives for an Earth-friendly approach in its packaging. Its first choice is recyclable amber glass. Where safety is an issue, for example in a shower product, high-quality, sustainably produced biopolymer recyclable bottles are used.
