  • 💚SAVE MONEY & THE WORLD 🌍 Swipe >>>
.
When we started to look at our lifestyle, and switched to plastic free, zero waste, more natural options for us as a family, another big consideration was the energy we use everyday in our home.
.
It's easy to not consider this every time we flick the kettle on, but it's there...and as a family of 4, it's a considerable impact 🌍
.
We got behind our laptops and started researching (a lot!), did the sums, and actually we were REALLY surprised by what we found out! 🙌🏼
.
We decided on a provider who supplies 100% renewable electricity from solar, wind and hydro. Plus, their gas is 100% carbon neutral. 10% is green gas produced from renewable sources like food or farm waste, and they offset the rest of the gas they supply by supporting carbon reduction projects around the World 💚
.
AND their unlike the main big suppliers their pricing is super easy to understand (one tariff for all!), and for our consumption they were cheaper! Save money and save the World! 🙌🏼
.
We switched several months ago, and compared to other times we've moved and switched supplier, it was super easy and hassle free.
.
Honestly, i'd never recommend something I wasn't happy with, but this was a piece of cake! We were kept informed by upbeat emails, and each month it's just so easy to see what energy we're using and keep up to date with our account. Couldn't recommend them enough, AND they're cheaper, AND they're 100% renewable! 🤩
.
If you are looking to do this in your home and think this is right for you, Bulb usually have a £50.00 credit to share, BUT UNTIL 23RD JULY IT’S £75.00 🙌🏼🤩💚
.
I’ll be absolutely honest, if you switch I get £75.00 too, BUT so do you, added automatically straight to your first bill 🙌🏼🤩💚

  • Soap appreciation 🥰🧼
.
Sorry I’ve been a little quiet recently...
.
I’ve been working my socks off to restock, and keep up with the demand fo our goodies 🤩
.
Aaaand I now have a cold, and as a super small business owner, it means every part of it is ‘down’ or struggles 🤒 #smallbusinesslife
.
But I’m rubbish at colds, so it won’t stop me for long 💪🏼😁
.
While I’m feeling sorry for myself, can we just take a moment to appreciate these bars? 🥰🌈🧼
.
They are 100% coloured by nature 🍃 Really?! Yep, you’re looking at natural clays, dried plant powders and a plant root extract 💚
.
More and more I see ‘natural’ products in wonderful bright colours...if you see the word colour, mica, ultramarine, colour oxide, colour pigment in the ingredients...these are not natural 👎🏼❌
.
We’ve worked seriously hard to create the colours of our bars using ingredients provided by nature 🍃It took a long time and a lot of trial and error to get them just how we wanted them, but we weren’t prepared to cut any corners 👍🏼💚
.
We created colours that are fun and give our bars character - make sure you understand and are aware of the difference 👍🏼
.
Have a great day 😁

  • The ‘Sunday Office’ 🧼☕️
.
Things at CONCHUS have been pretty busy recently 😅 #plasticfreejuly
.
It’s a interesting ‘game’ as you’re constantly trying to predict the future 🔮
.
Natural soap, once initially made, cut and stamped, has to ‘cure’ for at least 4 weeks! This hardens the bars and makes them lovely and gentle ☺️
.
But it does mean the stock you make is realistically a guessing game...and as soon as you think you’ve worked out your most popular bars, things turn and other ones become the most popular 😄🧼
.
But it’s all fun 🙌🏼
.
So today, after lots of melting, stirring, pouring, cutting, stamping and curing, is a morning of wrapping bars and mugs of tea ☕️😁☕️
.
What are you up to today? 💚
.
Wherever you are, whatever you’re up to, and whoever you’re sharing it with - have a great one 😊

  • Everybody loves the sunshine ☀️
.
But as our natural goodies aren’t filled with emulsifiers, preservatives and nasty additives, they do need a little tlc if it’s hot and humid ☺️
.
BALMS - our balms are completely natural, with just enough plant waxes to give them a firm silky texture. Keep them out of direct sun / heat, and as cool as possible to prevent them melting ☀️
.
OIL - this all natural, silky and luxurious blend of skin loving oils, all have a long shelf life naturally. But as we don’t add preservatives to our products, just keep it out of direct sun / heat and as cool as possible to look after it ☀️
.
SOAPS / BARS - soap is designed to dissolve and make lather when it comes into contact with water. Natural soap does start to struggle a little when it’s hot a humid. To always prolong the life of your bars, keep them as dry as possible, let them dry out fully between uses, and keep them in a well ventilated, cool environment ☺️
.
☀️ HAPPY SUMMERTIME ☀️

  • This...or this >> 🧼
.
Whenever I go to a supermarket I’m always so proud to be able to skip all the toiletry aisles 🙌🏼 There literally isn’t one thing that as a family we require on them 💚
.
Today I used one to reach the checkouts, and it always shocks me...😳
.
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 it’s fresh, pure, delicate skin with?
.
Honestly it amazes me.
.
One of Johnson & Johnson’s most well known product, Baby Oil, that has been sold to new parents for years and years to care for their newborn’s skin...turn it over, and it’s just a bottle of liquid paraffin 😳 Really?!
.
And then there’s the ‘paraben free’, ‘artificial fragrance free’, etc body washes, bubble baths, shampoos and lotions - turn them over and you’ll find plenty of detergents and foaming agents (otherwise they wouldn’t produce bubbles), ingredients that contain destructive materials like palm oil, and many many unprounceables that were apparently derived waaaaaaaaaay back from something natural 👎🏼
.
I don’t buy it. Literally I don’t. And you see all those ‘on offer’ price labels? It’s a cheaply made mass product, with cheap ingredients.
.
Scroll right and you’ll see our SOFTY bar 🧼 It’s approved to use on babies, and is perfect for super sensitive skin and everyone in the family, top to toe ❤️
.
It’s largest ingredient is pure olive oil, with some rich shea butter, nourishing coconut oil and conditioning castor oil.
.
And that’s it! No fragrance, no colour (even natural ones in our case), just a beautiful, natural, gentle, pure bar of soap 🧼
.
I’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 🥰 AND the reviews from customers with children, sensitive skin, skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, and people with curly hair, have been amazing 🤩
.
I love to use it for shaving too, as it’s lather is so rich and silky 🥰

  • *BACK IN STOCK*
.
CONCH - the gentle face wash bar for everyone 💚
.
It’s had some aaaaamazing reviews 🤩 From people with sensitive skin, spotty skin, oily skin, combination skin, mature skin, young skin, or just ‘normal’ skin ☺️
.
You love it! 💚 And check out this pic from @sustainable_sdc who started the one on the right back in Jan 🤩 It lasts aaaaages 🙌🏼💚
.
We’re believers that skin and hair should be allowed to be skin and hair, so that your body can find its own harmony and balance ✌🏼
.
Our face wash bar is all about balance 💆🏼‍♀️
.
You’ll find a whole host of ‘skin problems’  improve massively when you let skin find its own balance ☺️ Without over cleansing, over exfoliating, over moisturising. Just gently cleanse and support it, and it will glow with happiness ☺️
.
CONCH is made with a blend of natural oils and clays, that gently cleanse without drying, draw out impurities, and then nourish with avocado oil and unrefined shea butter 🥑
.
It’s also delicately fragranced with pure botanicals that can help to balance natural facial oils, and really support the skin for a clearer complexion✨

  • **EDIT** CHERRY BARS HAVE NOW ALL GONE 😳❤️🍒🙌🏼
.
🤩 WOOOOOOOOOOOW 🤩
.
When I was planning these super special bars a few months back, I genuinely thought 100 bars would last around a week 😅
.
A few months on, and the lasted about 1 day 🤣
.
🤩 WOOOOOOOOOOOW 🤩
.
This does mean that I know have 100 orders to pack, while keeping up with the soap and product making that we need to do each day 😅
.
>> I’M GOING TO DO MY BEST, but I may have to send these orders out over Mon, Tues and Weds (as it’s just little ‘ol me ☺️), BUT I’ll work my socks off and you’ll get a dispatch email to let you know when yours is on its way 🙌🏼<<
.
AND there’s still 🍒 10 CHERRY BARS LEFT 🍒
so if you’d like a free one on your order - be quick 😁
.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support, orders, love and kindness over the last year ❤️ It means the World! I honestly didn’t think CONCHUS would be where it is currently in just a year, so I’ve got lots of work to plan where we take it next 🙌🏼

  • IT’S A YEAR TODAY SINCE OUR STORE OPENED 🙌🏼🥳
.
WOW what a year it’s been!
.
There’s been some super highs, some mega lows, some struggles and scrapes, and some serious successes 🙌🏼
.
I launched CONCHUS to bring modern, every day alternatives, to people who were CONCHUS about life 💚
.
I wanted to provide products that were made with quality, natural, honest ingredients, that would care for you just as much as they cared for the environment, and felt like a little piece of luxury while at an everyday price 💚
.
CONCHUS is made by us, by hand, completely from start to finish 🖐🏼 We don’t cut corners or compromise, and work hard to share our goodies with you with all our love and pride 💚
.
And together, we all give back to the environment, we give back to our bodies, and we give back to people who struggle in life through our jointly created HUG Bars 💚
.
So to celebrate our first birthday WE’RE GIVING YOU a FREE CHERRY BAR on your next order 🙌🏼❤️🍒🤩 **EDIT** CHERRY BARS HAVE NOW ALL GONE 😳❤️🍒🙌🏼
.
CHERRY is an exfoliating body wash bar that is super, super special ❤️🍒 It’s made with nourishing cherry kernel oil, loads of unrefined rich cocoa butter, cherry seed powder, pink and red clays, and sweet floral essential oils ❤️🍒
.
And even more special... it’s named after my daughter, who loves a little back scratch in the bath 🥰🍒
.
We’ve made just 100 of these bars, so on the next 100 orders there’ll be a CHERRY BAR included as a gift from us for our first birthday 🙌🏼🥳 (no code needed).
.
AAAAAND we’ll include one in orders from yesterday too ❤️🍒😘 **EDIT** CHERRY BARS HAVE NOW ALL GONE 😳❤️🍒🙌🏼

  • Almost a week into #plasticfreejuly 🙌🏼💚
.
What plastic have you pledged to ditch? 🤗
.
We’ve had a crazy week, so bathroom plastic is definitely an area that a lot of you are tackling 🧼 WELL DONE! 😁🙌🏼
.
It’s the first area we focussed on too 👍🏼 As a family of four, I was increasingly concerned by the number of different products, the bottles and bottles of recycling each week, and the endless artificial fragrances and nasty unpronounceable additives ❌
.
This is why many of the CONCHUS products are multipurpose, and they are ALL plastic free, vegan, cruelty free, palm oil free and contain all natural ingredients including the scents and colours 🌍
.
But it’s tough...habits are difficult to change...life is chaotic...
.
You don’t have to change your whole life in a month.
.
You don’t have to be perfect.
.
There will be bumps in the road where things don’t work out, or you struggle to find a good plastic free option for you, or a last minute rush means you ‘fail’ (a phrase I don’t like but couldn’t think of an appropriate word 🤦🏼‍♀️)...
.
It’s a journey that we’re all on (there are still many things I need to change at home!), but believe that every step you make, no matter how small, does make a difference and you CAN make a difference 💚
.
Have a great weekend ☀️
