Handmade in Edinburgh - I make small batch Vegan & Zero Waste Skincare products - Face & Body Balms, Face Scrub, Lip Scrubs & Clay Masks. Refills too

It all started with me wanting to make a Christmas present for my bestie! I knew I'd have a use for that Chemistry A level one day....
But I kept finding recipes that weren't Vegan and as I'm Vegan I didn't want to do that... So I started tinkering with Vegan alternative ingredients and she loved it! And her friends loved it, and I wanted to do more....
And so Coven was born, first as Coven Scrubs & Balms which quickly became Coven Vegan Skincare which I like better.
I'm also Zero Waste as much as is humanly possible - glass jars, refill pouches, reclaimed packaging - and I use independent businesses whenever I can for supplies. Supporting other independents is as much in Coven's ethos as everything else.
My Skincare products are as much for fellow Vegans as they are for fellow Zero Wasters. Or for folks wanting luxurious and long lasting and high quality skincare that doesn't cost a ridiculous £50 per pot....
I don't use water in any of my formulas. By having no water, Coven's products are low in allergens - lots of people have allergies not to a product's main ingredients but the additives required to counter act the water....
So I created products which don't have water in them.... It didn't seem to be rocket science but it is fairly unusual out there I have discovered.
So, if you fancy treating yourself or getting a gift, feel free to check Coven out. Love, peace & purrs, Rachel xx

Frequently asked questions
Are your products 100% vegan?

Yes, absolutely 100% vegan. I am vegan myself and welcome orders from everyone to show you how luxurious cruelty free skincare can be.

Can I only use water with the Rice & Aduki Bean Face Scrub?

Water works great but so does adding the face scrub powder to a cleanser.

How much body/face balm should I use?

It depends on how dry your skin is - BUT a little bit really does go a long way so start small & judge as you go!

Is the body and face balm really suitable for the face?

Yes. The balm is light enough for the face - remember a little bit goes a long way - but "strong" enough to tackle those inevitable dry patches we all have (mine = neglected shins!)

Are the clay cleanser & masks suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes, both are. The Kaolin clay is especially good for sensitive skin.

Who is the cat in your logo?

That is my cat, Theodore Elvis Norbert to give him his full name! He's a little bit tubby hence Elvis as a middle name. I also love Harry Potter so all my cats gets a HP name - my previous cats were Dobbie Elvis and Mrs Weasley xxx
