A little bit about me
My name’s Moira, I’m a cosmetic chemist and live on the beautiful Kapiti Coast in New Zealand. I have a degree in Environmental Science and a Diploma of Personal Care Formulation.
I was blessed to be bought up in the South of England by an amazing mother, who instilled in me, her love of the environment and passion for natural living. My childhood was filled with carefree days spent foraging on the South Downs for berries, flowers and weeds and watching my mum turn them into wine, herbal remedies and skincare.
This passion has never faded, I have been formulating skincare for over 15 years and it is still one of my most favorite things to do. I enjoy spending time researching and learning about new ingredients and ways to use them to create simple yet effective skincare.
I genuinely care about sustainability and the effect my formulations have on the environment and peoples health. But it’s not just the formulation I consider; it’s where and how the ingredients are grown, the processing the raw ingredients undergo, the use of Fair Trade and local ingredients whenever possible, the finished product packaging and the shipping material used.
Its extremely important to me that everything I produce is truly ‘green’ and not just ‘green by association’.
If you are looking at making your own organic and naturally formulated skincare and have any questions, please drop me a line. I would love to hear from you.
I really hope you enjoy looking around.
