Why choose organic skincare?


At The Dartmoor Skincare Company we create blends with organic oils, flower waters, botanical extracts and butters, in keeping with our ‘Inspired By Nature’ ethos. Organic ingredients contain many beneficial antioxidants, omegas, vitamins and minerals which nourish, repair and replenish your skin. Research shows that plants grown organically have a higher level of vital antioxidant vitamins than non-organic. All of this goodness is reflected in our skincare products and the fabulous results you will see, as our skin absorbs up to 60% of what we put on it. In addition to organic ingredients, we have chosen cold pressed oils and unrefined butters which are less processed so really boost the nutritional value of our skincare.

By choosing organic skincare, your products are likely to contain less synthetic and chemical ingredients and higher levels of natural ingredients. Natural ingredients are much kinder to the skin than their chemical alternatives and are far less likely to cause reactions. Synthetic fragrances are the most common cause of skin sensitivities, you can find these in the ingredient’s list as ‘parfum’ or ‘fragrance’. At The Dartmoor Skincare Company we always use 100% natural organic essential oils to give our skincare products their inviting aromas.

Organic skincare tends to be fresher by the time it gets to you, as it usually has a shorter shelf life. Many creams are created with a long shelf life, typical high-street products will last for 3 years after opening.  At The Dartmoor Skincare Company we make our products in small batches and each pot is stamped with a best before date of 12 months, so you can be sure your product is as fresh as possible.

Organic skincare products are also better for the environment. All the ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides and artificial fertilisers and in an environmentally sustainable way. All our suppliers are certified by the Organic Soil Assoication. So it’s a win win for your skin and for the planet!
