The Natural Spa background story
Today, we would like to share some “how it all started” info from Zoe of the Natural Spa. They are our main “soap” supplier and we might take on more of the natural products in the future.
Zoe of the Natural Spa says
Nature has always been an inspiration to me; having been very lucky to spend part of my childhood living in the Yorkshire Dales. And also the other part by the sea in Devon. This is what ultimately sparked my passion to create natural skin, hair, and personal care products.
The Natural Spa in 2016
The Natural Spa had humble beginnings; in August I had set up my small soap making station. A shed at the end of my parents garden. I began formulating recipes and attending a few small local markets and fayres, some of which had in interesting turn out. But these events were key in gaining brilliant contacts to build the business. Many of which we still work with today.
Low waste living became a big part of my personal life. Therefore, I was determined to transfer my newfound knowledge to The Natural Spa. After almost 6 months of experimenting in my soap workshop I finally found the perfect blend and a few months later we released are now best selling hair care range. Since then we have made it our mission to provide high quality hair care products to as many people as we can whilst also remaining as low waste through our entire supply chain.
This was a milestone year for the business because. First of all, we became VAT registered but we also started expanding the team with our first hire- Joy.
The Natural spa today
This year has already become our biggest step in our journey yet! We took the leap to our very own industrial unit. Besides, it has a soap kitchen downstairs 4 times the size of my entire previous workspace. Not only this but we have doubled our team size. Our low waste lifestyle range is expanding, starting with our newest product, cream deodorants.
Looking forward we are excited to be updating all our packaging, as well we are releasing lots of new products. Continuing to reduce our waste is a priority. We love providing products to help you live a low waste lifestyle. We hope to set a good example and we currently laying the foundations to becoming carbon negative very soon.
