For over 30 years, the Isle of Arran has been our home and its natural beauty has inspired our products and scents. Protecting our Island and the rest of the Earth is of utmost importance to us and by making our products more sustainable, we are helping to preserve the world around us. Want to know where to start making sustainable swaps? We’ve got just the place to start…

Eco-Friendly Refills

Care for your hair, hands and the planet by using our 2L Eco-Friendly Refills – available in Hand Wash and Shampoo. By switching to larger containers, we reduce plastic consumption by up to 76% and you can enjoy a saving of 58% on your refilled products.

Bottling it up?

Whether you prefer our bottled Hand Wash or 100% natural Soap Bars, there’s no need for eco-guilt – we have you covered. Clean and nourish your hands and protect the planet with our bottled Hand Wash. All our plastic bottles are now fully recyclable, and we are on track for all of bottles to be 100% PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) by the end of 2022, fulfilling our sustainable promise. Alternatively, you can ditch the bottles and opt for our tripled milled, moisture rich, vegetable-based Soaps. We work only with suppliers who use FSC-approved (Forest Stewardship Council) materials from responsibly managed forests for our cardboard packaging, and sustainably sourced, RSPO-approved (Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) palm oil in order to continue the evolution of our business in a more sustainable, environmentally friendly direction.

Reducing Online Packaging

If you can’t make it to one of our stores, no need to worry! We have reduced the amount of packaging used in all online orders and removed all plastic making our products fully recyclable, all while keeping your new goodies safe in transit.

Up-cycle Your Containers

Finished with your Candles and Reed Diffusers? Why not incorporate them into your décor, we love repurposing these as vases!
