We met in 2012 at the school gates and soon became fast friends! We have followed similar paths in life, both working in the city in our 20’s and both working as therapists in our 30’s (Wendy as a massage therapist and Kelly as a psychotherapist). Kelly has always been obsessed by skincare and is a qualified skincare formulator.
We decided in 2017 to combine our life experiences to form an independent British skincare brand with a Capsule Collection of multi-tasking products that are vegan, sustainable, 100% natural and suitable for the most delicate of skins. Our products were initially formulated for Wendy’s pre-natal massage clients. Our best-selling product, Hydration Boost Moisturising Balm, started out as a treatment for baby bumps and continues to be a popular multi-tasking product to hydrate super-dry skin! We’ve since formulated our Instant Hydration Body Balm, which is perfect for baby bumps and makes a great gift for soon to be Mums!
We keep our carbon footprint small and always make earth-friendly decisions. We love to source local, British ingredients where possible and we’re fortunate to have a lavender farm on our doorstep, who provide us with beautifully fresh lavender oil that goes into our skincare. To be able to see and smell your ingredients growing and to watch it being processed and bottled is truly magical!
We pride ourselves on being an honest brand who offers transparency to our customers. We know exactly where our ingredients are sourced and we source directly from the supplier, where possible. When we can’t source directly, we only use respected suppliers who can. This ensures that we have a small supply chain and carbon footprint. The ingredients we use are always sustainably sourced, organic where possible and of premium quality. Our plant oils and butters are always cold-pressed and unrefined to ensure maximum potency and freshness, delivering high levels of nutrients to feed your skin.
The Meadow Skincare collection is housed in Miron glass jars that are infinitely recyclable and we like to encourage our customers to upcycle these jars as they’re so beautiful! We also work with Recycled UK Ltd so that customers can return their lids to us for recycling. All our packing materials are made from cardboard and paper and we don’t use any unnecessary outer packaging, like boxes or cellophane.
We like to give back to our community and have recently donated 50 of our Ultra Protective Lip and Hand Balms to the nurses at our local hospitals to help their tired hands!
Through our use of plant-based ingredients we have created effective and practical skincare range that will lift your spirits and transform your day and night-time skincare routine. We inspire a moment of calm and self-care so that your skincare ritual is an enjoyable, relaxing treat rather than a chore. Our skincare is so gentle that it is suitable for all skin types and is great at rebalancing and healing unhappy skin.
We hope you enjoy our skincare collection as much as we do!
