  • This tin of joy is always in my bag!
.
Iโ€™m a busy business owner, wife and Mum to two little ones, and my life demands simplicity ๐Ÿ˜
.
I have no time for different lotions, creams and potions for every part of my body ...
.
This is why I created our Miracle Body Balm, and my bag is never without this little pot of joy!
.
It'll love your skin come rain or shine. It'll soothe and protect in the winter, and nourish in the summer. It will restore, repair and renew, and absorbs deep into the skin leaving it soft, supple and non greasy ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
And there's a lot packed into that 60g tin! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
We've selected oils and butters that are rich in vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B17, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin F, vitamin K, proteins, omega 6 (linoleic acid), omega 9 (oleic acid), stearic acid and minerals. WOW!
.
And it will love the environment just as much as it loves your skin, with it's 100% recyclable aluminium tin, and uncoated paper labels ๐ŸŒ
.
MIRACLE BODY BALM is also 100% vegan, so it's a combination natural oils, rich butters and plant waxes without using beeswax (which is commonly used to produce a thick, long lasting balm), and is delicately fragranced with an exotic and uplifting blend of pure botanicals that are known to balance, soothe, hydrate and restore skin ๐Ÿฅฐ
.
This mid weight balm, is a real all purpose skin saver, that I personally love to massage into my feet and heels, soften my hard working hands, deeply nourish and strengthen my nails and cuticles, care and protect my lips ๐Ÿ’š And everywhere else! ๐Ÿ˜
.
100% natural

  • Have you ever thought about what your clothes are made of? About who makes your clothes, or what happens after you donate them or throw them away? The truth about the fashion industry is actually pretty ugly ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ
.
A recent study by the Ellen McArthur Foundation found that one garbage truck of textiles is wasted every second ๐Ÿš›
.
And the Copenhagen Fashion Summit reported that fashion is responsible for 92 million tons of solid waste dumped in landfills each year โŒ
.
The fashion industry is also the second-biggest consumer of water, producing 20 percent of wastewater while also generating more greenhouse gas emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined โœˆ๏ธ
.
We need to rethink our fast-fashion habit - we canโ€™t continue to make and over consume clothes that do not consider our environment ๐Ÿ’š
.
SO...weโ€™ve collaborated with @clothes.doctor to offer you that chance to win a ยฃ50 voucher to repair, renew, rework and rewear your clothes instead of replacing them ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’š

  • This...or this >> ๐Ÿงผ
.
Whenever I go to a supermarket Iโ€™m always so proud to be able to skip all the toiletry aisles ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ There literally isnโ€™t one thing that as a family we require on them ๐Ÿ’š
.
Today I used one to reach the checkouts, and it always shocks me...๐Ÿ˜ณ
.
Rows and rows and rows and rows of plastic, nasty chemicals, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colours and misleading packaging.
.
How about this for your baby? To start it off in life. To cover itโ€™s fresh, pure, delicate skin with?
.
Honestly it amazes me.
.
One of Johnson & Johnsonโ€™s most well known product, Baby Oil, that has been sold to new parents for years and years to care for their newbornโ€™s skin...turn it over, and itโ€™s just a bottle of liquid paraffin ๐Ÿ˜ณ Really?!
.
And then thereโ€™s the โ€˜paraben freeโ€™, โ€˜artificial fragrance freeโ€™, etc body washes, bubble baths, shampoos and lotions - turn them over and youโ€™ll find plenty of detergents and foaming agents (otherwise they wouldnโ€™t produce bubbles), ingredients that contain destructive materials like palm oil, and many many unprounceables that were apparently derived waaaaaaaaaay back from something natural ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ
.
I donโ€™t buy it. Literally I donโ€™t. And you see all those โ€˜on offerโ€™ price labels? Itโ€™s a cheaply made mass product, with cheap ingredients.
.
Scroll right and youโ€™ll see our SOFTY bar ๐Ÿงผ Itโ€™s approved to use on babies, and is perfect for super sensitive skin and everyone in the family, top to toe โค๏ธ
.
Itโ€™s largest ingredient is pure olive oil, with some rich shea butter, nourishing coconut oil and conditioning castor oil.
.
And thatโ€™s it! No fragrance, no colour (even natural ones in our case), just a beautiful, natural, gentle, pure bar of soap ๐Ÿงผ
.
Iโ€™ve used it on my kiddies for hair and body for a long time now. It makes their hair silky soft, and really cares for their delicate skin ๐Ÿฅฐ AND the reviews from customers with children, sensitive skin, skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, and people with curly hair, have been amazing ๐Ÿคฉ
.
I love to use it for shaving too, as itโ€™s lather is so rich and silky ๐Ÿฅฐ

.

We also make all of our bars by hand, right here in the UK, using traditional soap making techniques and great quality ingredients ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
.

CONCHUS is now 9 months old ๐ŸŒŸ
.
Our mission was (and still is) a simple one...
.
To bring modern, every day alternatives, to people who are CONCHUS about life.
.
And this means all life. The lives of each other, the lives of animals, the lives of strangers, the life of our World ๐ŸŒ All of it.
.
So weโ€™ve started off with alternatives for very common every day items - shampoo, body wash, face wash, moisturisers and skincare. Ones for all the family ๐Ÿค—
.
These are made lovingly by hand, on a small scale, with pure natural ingredients, that will love and care just as much for your skin and hair as the environment ๐Ÿ’š
.
The bathroom is such a great place to start ditching plastic, ditching chemicals and synthetics, and making a change ๐ŸŒŸ
.
A through this change, you also make more changes...
.
โ€˜Helping one person might not change the World, but it could change the World for that one person.โ€™
.
Through our incredible HUG bars which include pieces of every bar you buy ๐Ÿ’— that we donate to people in need.
.
Even our โ€˜THERE IS NO PLANET B.โ€™ tees are screen printed by hand, use eco friendly water based inks, and support organic cotton farming and the fair employment of the workers ๐Ÿ’š AND THESE ARE CURRENTLY HALF PRICE AT ยฃ10 A TEE ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคฉ
.
Weโ€™re excited about the products and projects we have planned, and joining you on your plastic free and Earth positive journey ...๐ŸŒ
