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 fully recyclable and made from Prevented Ocean Plastic, diverting over 1000 tonnes of plastic from entering the ocean every month. 

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.

Working with Arran Trust

Since 2023, 5% of every ARRAN Naturals sale made in our Home Farm shop on the Isle of Arran has been donated to the Arran Trust, who fund projects which look after the beautiful landscapes and environment, working alongside businesses and community groups to improve sustainable practices and safeguard the island’s future.

As part of our partnership with the Arran Trust, we have also committed to the Arran Pledge, a promise to respect the Isle of Arran. We encourage all of our customers to join us in the Arran pledge and protect our island home.

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.
