Our skincare products start life in the lavender fields we see from our windows.
Benefits of lavender
There are many benefits of lavender. Scientists are at last proving that ancient anecdotal claims about the wonders of lavender are deserved.
Research shows lavender is calming and effective in treating insomnia. Just a few drops added to a hot bath help your body to relax. Lavender has been shown to help heal wounds and burns, as well as insect bites.
Modern scientific research has shown lavender to be effective in reducing anxiety and stress.
How we make our products
Our lavender oil and floral water are the basis for the products in our Ruby Lafant range. The formulations for the products are unique to us and have been designed by our producer Helen Lowe, a leading artisan in the design and development of creams. She has created a beautiful product range for us with the focus on ingredients that are beneficial – there are no artificial colours or perfumes in our products.
We use naturally derived ingredients and none of our products are tested on animals.
Developing new products
We know that there are many more skincare products and objects of desire we can make with our lavender and we are exploring some of these.
Right now we have a fabulous hand cream in development for farmers and anyone who works in the great outdoors. We were inspired to develop this product after making a presentation about our lavender farm to the Wye Valley Grasslands Association.
Our zingy lavender, lime and honey (from our own bees) lip balm is launching soon.
If you have any thoughts about new products we should think about developing, please share them on our Facebook page.
