My Mission since 2007 -
---------------------------------
"I love making raw antioxidant skin nutrition to help protect, nourish & repair our skin and natural vegan Perfumes to help bring joy into our daily rituals through our sense of smell"

🌟Our Ingredients are organic, vegan and free from alcohol.
🌟Our accessories are ethically sourced and hand made, made exclusively for us or bought from the women cooperative we partner with.

The vast majority of skincare ingredients are 'Cosmetic grade' which means, they are a poorer quality and a much cheaper alternative to food grade ingredients which must undergo very strict purity testing and adhere to much tougher quality controls.

I only use premium food grade and supplement grade raw organic active ingredients.

Our skin is our bodies largest organ and secreting gland, it is not the inert outer covering many people believe it to be. Our skin is our immune systems first line of defense. Our skin keeps us warm and it cools us down, it shows when we're happy, tired, embarrassed or unwell. Our skin is the outside of our inside and it literally holds us together and although it has evolved to protect us, our skin is still vulnerable and constantly under attack and so it also needs our protection too.

Therapeutic, raw, antioxidant skin-food made from the purist organic ingredients will help protect, nourish and repair our skin and in return our skin will show us gratitude by looking and feeling radiantly healthy " Maeve {founder & formulator}

How do I dare to be different?
-------------------------------------------
♥ I dare to be different by NOT diluting our raw organic seed oils with cheaper, weaker carrier oils and by choosing premium food grade, organic CO2 extracted seed oils and herbal extracts in place of inferior cold pressed seed oils and hydro-alcoholic herbal extracts...

♥ I cold blend my recipes to ensure the highest possible antioxidant content to protect, nourish and repair your skin to better face the challenges of our changing times..

♥ I don't use any wax emulsifiers so your skin can breath more freely and I don't use artificial feel enhancers, thickeners, colours, fragrances or nonsense ingredients of any kind. My recipes are vegan, alcohol free and unscented but can be scented with a choice of bespoke essential oil blends..

♥ My skincare products are contained in beautiful Miron™ violet glass, premium bio-photonic protection against light and air, ensuring my products stay fresh with a typical 'best before end date' of 18 months to 2 years.

♥ Natural Wisdom Raw Organic Skincare is used in premium signature facial treatments at the Scarlet Spa in Cornwall and Health Space in Bishops Waltham. UK

♥ Hand made to order in small, fresh batches. No nonsense. No compromise

About

About Natural Wisdom Spa

Hello, thank you for stopping by :-)

I've been formulating skincare professionally since 2007 and what I've learned in that time is that the people who come to Natural Wisdom are ready to try something different for their skin, they are looking for an antidote to the bright white skincare that's full of empty promises and they are tired of the chemicals and the lies. They're ready to embrace real natural skin food and see the difference that it can make to the health of their skin.

Natural Wisdom dares to be different. All my recipes are raw. Cold blended at room temperature I use a blending technique that took me two years to perfect. I never cook or heat my skincare ingredients. My skincare doesn't feel very different to conventional skincare other than feeling much much better! it's lighter, sinks in quickly and smells fresh, natural and divine! Just the way Mother Nature intended.

If you've read this far then you'll love to know that...

✿ I never use refined carrier oils or cheap, weak filler ingredients to dilute my recipes.

✿ I only use CO2 extracted organic premium seed oils and botanical actives that are food and supplement grade. Made in Germany they are superior to all other extraction techniques.

✿ My formulations are highly concentrated with proven super active ingredients.

✿ I order my ingredients little and often so they are always fresh and have the longest shelf dates.

✿ I make all my skincare daily to order in small fresh batches and I use specialist Miron Violet glass, a bio-photonic glass scientifically proven to extend the shelf life of fresh ingredients by many months by protecting the light sensitive ingredients by completely blocking all UV light and air (when the cap is on)

✿ Custom formulations are a specialty and I love to make the perfect product for you.

✿ I resist ingredients that have been hyped up but provide only empty promises. I research all my ingredients carefully before I'll use them. I only use active ingredients clinically proven to work.

✿ My skincare is fully guaranteed, so if it doesn't suit you, you can send it home for a full refund including postage.

Natural Wisdom products are exclusively available from my Etsy store, my website and the Scarlet Spa in Cornwall. An Eco Spa situated on the wild Cornish coast who love my skincare products so much they designed a unique spa treatment called the Honest Sensory Massage & Facial just so they could use Natural Wisdom in their Spa!

Please join me on Facebook or Instagram for skincare news and coupon codes!


With love and blessings.

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
Please read these terms and conditions, if you have any concerns or questions, I am here to help :-)

🌟I make all my products with premium quality natural and organic ingredients that are Food Grade wherever the option exists.

🌟I work to stringent Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) but this doesn't mean that a skin reaction will never happen. Everyone's skin is different and although it's highly unlikely and happens rarely, a skin reaction may happen in sensitive & reactive skin.

🌟 PLEASE CAREFULLY STUDY THE INGREDIENTS- If you know before hand that you have a sensitivity to any of the ingredients please do not purchase the product.

🌟 Because of the nature of my products, returned products can never be resold therefore I ask you to contact me as soon as possible if you experience a problem.

🌟WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: A skin reaction to a new product will almost always show itself within the first 72 hours of using a product. You may experience warmth, redness or an itchy rash. A reaction is temporary and will subside within a few hours or days of stopping using the product. A reaction can occur to even the mildest natural ingredients and everyone's skin is different.

After 72 hours, it becomes significantly less likely a reaction will occur and is incredibly rare for a reaction to occur after 5 or more days of use. Please contact me as soon as you feel you have had a reaction to one of my products.

The main reasons for skin becoming unhappy is:
1) Using too many products (layering)
2) Using too much of a product (smothering the skin)
3) Applying products too often (e.g. Exfoliating every day or cleansing to often)

🌟 RETURNING A PRODUCT: (The customer pays for return shipping) If you are returning a product, please contact me within 14 days after receiving the product, please email sales [!at] naturalwisdom.co.uk

🌟I reserve the right NOT to offer a refund for products returned to me in the following circumstances-

1) Products returned (without prior agreement) more than 14 days from the original date of purchase and received within 21 days from the original date of purchase.
2) Products returned showing evidence of significant use (evidenced by weight)
3) Products returned not in their original packaging and showing signs of use.

🌟 Products must be returned unused and in their original packaging and dispatched no later than 14 days after receiving them and please keep hold of your proof of postage receipt.

🌟If you are returning a product because a reaction has occurred, the product needs to reflect that very little of the product was used, usually three days use. (I determine this by weighing the product) If the product shows signs of having been used significantly, no refund will be offered although in some cases I may offer a store credit.

🌟If you have requested a custom made skincare product, I will always strongly recommend you request a sample first.

🌟Skincare samples, Solid Perfume samples and Custom made samples are not returnable and not refundable but in many cases I will offer a store credit.

🌟 Please note that Custom orders are not refundable so please always buy a sample first.

If you receive your product damaged, please take a photograph within 24 hours of receiving the item and email to sales [!at] naturalwisdom.co.uk

Your satisfaction is my main priority, please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.
