In a series of blog pieces this year, we thought we’d shine a light on some of our fantastic suppliers – as these small businesses really are a joy to work with. This time we’re taking a closer look at how Made By Coopers started, who supply the extremely popular Vanilla Rose bath salts in our Mama Mini, Relax and Thinking of You letterbox care packages.
After working in the beauty industry for 18 years – founder Clare Cooper started to question the ingredients in her products and began gaining knowledge about more natural ingredients.
On a three month trip travelling around India - Clare and her partner Darren spent time at an Ayurvedic retreat in Kerala, learning all about the power of plants and natural healing, as well as lots of yoga, meditation, and early five a.m. chanting ceremonies!
It was at this retreat, they got to see first hand the plants and herbs transformed into oils used for treatments. To experience how the aromas from the oils made them feel during their own massages and affect their wellbeing in a positive way, was a life changing experience. Following this powerful experience, the idea was formed to start a range of natural products, infused with essential oils, with the focus on emotional wellbeing. After a long time spent studying, testing and blending, Made By Coopers was born.
Believing that what you put on the skin and what you breathe in should be as important as what you put in your body; therefore they only use natural, organic and clean ingredients to create our artisan line of beauty and wellness products. Drawing from the Ayurvedic philosophy to treat the body as a whole, they believe to nourish the skin, nourish the mind.
All products are always 100% free from: Parabens, SLS’s, Mineral oil, Palm oil, Sulfates, Artificial colours and Synthetic fragrances. They are also vegan friendly and cruelty-free.
Now based in Sussex, all products are designed, formulated, hand blended and labelled by the small team at Made by Coopers.
