Neal's Yard at Pout
Neal's Yard Remedies was born in 1981. We like to think of ourselves as pioneers. Today awareness and interest in natural remedies, skin and body care are on the increase. But when we opened our first shop in Covent Garden, we were one of the few pushing against the synthetic chemical approach to skin and health care that had been adopted by much of the industry.
The Edinburgh Franchise first opened in 1999 on George Street (in the building which is now home to Arran Aromatics). We moved to Hanover Street in 2002. We have three beautiful Therapy Rooms behind the shop, where we offer a wide range of Therapies including Massage, Acupuncture, Hot Shell Massage, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Holistic Facials and Threading.
We sell a wide range of Natural, Organic skin and body care products. We stock Essential Oils and Bush Flower Essences. We have an organic, Soil Association accredited make up range.
Neal's Yard Remedies develop our products in our laboratory at Peacemarsh, combining traditional organic plant extracts with the latest advances in green chemistry to bring you the most effective, natural and innovative range of organic health and beauty-care available. Our newly released Frankincense Intense moisturiser contains Plant Stem Cells and Peptides, and has been clinically proven to improve the look and feel of the skin, by boosting collagen production which reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Our products are mainly vegan and are never tested on animals.
Did you know The skin is the body's largest organ, an active interface between our bodies and the environment? It's been well documented that what you put on your skin ends up in your body (just think of nicotine patches), so we believe it's really important to be fully aware of what's in the products you use.
Over the last 50 years, tens of thousands of new chemicals have been developed, most of which have never been properly tested on humans. We are absorbing a vast array of these new synthetic chemicals from our food, our toiletries, and our immediate environment. Surely it can be no coincidence that over the same time period, the incidences of illness such as eczema, allergies and even cancers have greatly increased.
We may not be able to avoid all of these chemicals, but we believe it makes sense to do what we can to minimise contact wherever possible.
We use a wide range of ingredients, but of course we take just as much care about those we won't use as those we do.
