ku.tis - NATURAL & ORGANIC SKIN CARE FROM THE HEART OF WALES
Sometimes things just happen; I never intended to start a skincare brand, but here I am 5 years later with a growing little business, surrounded by friends and doing something that is having a gentle but positive impact.
I think that the natural world provides all we need for our skin. We carefully blend quality and ethically sourced ingredients because it makes good sense to us to look after the world around us and leave as light a footprint as possible.
Wherever possible we use organic ingredients. Our body butters, lip balms and serums are 100% organic. 4 out of 6 of the base ingredients in our deodorants are organic and our cleansing masks are made of natural clays, organic oats and organic plant powders. We are committed to using the highest quality ingredients and only use non-organic ingredients where there is no genuine alternative that we know of.
We are dedicated to sourcing our ingredients from reputable suppliers. We use Shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil which is soil association certified and fairly traded. All of our liquid oils are certified organic as is our beeswax. We never test on animals. We aim to price our range fairly and competitively, making healthy, all natural skincare products accessible to many budgets.
GENTLE ON THE PLANET
We limit the use of plastic in our packaging and use materials which are widely recyclable. All ingredients are either shipped or delivered by road.
Our products are genuinely preservative free; there are neither stabilisers nor fillers, not even the “natural” or “naturally derived” ones. Many companies make this claim but when you actually look at the labels you will often find ingredients such as Phenoxythanol, ceatyl alcohol and others which are deemed safe and natural, but they have been through so many processes, including chemical, that they are so far removed from the original source they no longer are a natural ingredient in our eyes.
We strive to use minimally processed raw ingredients as we feel this provides the nutrients your skin needs. We believe that you can care for your skin with what Mother Nature provides.
