Our Philosophy

Why Katharine Botanicals products?

Katharine Botanicals products are formulated from a deep and broad experience of skincare products formulation.  They are based on a range from one of the first truly animal-friendly and eco-friendly companies that entered the market some 30 years ago, developed with the up-to-date knowledge available today.

They are manufactured to the highest standards and according to the ethical principles of the CICAW (Cosmetics Industry Coalition for Animal Welfare), and are fully approved by the Vegan Society - look for its logo on our products. The Vegan Society demands the highest standards of eco-friendliness from their members. None of our products or ingredients have been tested on animals for over 30 years.

Recycle   Vegan Society

So you can have full confidence in these superb hypo-allergenic products made with you and your baby in mind, and Katharine Graves is well known in the field of Hypnobirthing and personal care at the highest levels for the mother and baby.

 

What do we offer?

Preganant woman

Katharine Botanicals' aim is to provide you and your baby, both before and after birth, with the very finest, most tender and emollient of products possible.  Carefully formulated to deliver an effective mix of natural, plant-derived ingredients that have been used traditionally for many years.

Unlike artificially laboratory-synthesised products, since our active ingredients are original essential oils, plant oils, waxes and juices, they contain the full spectrum of goodness of the original plant.

You can rest assured that we will provide only the best products for you and your baby.

 

Effectiveness

Every Katharine Botanicals product contains a number of these ingredients which experience tells us is the most effective mixture.  There are single ingredient products on the market which are extremely good, but the human skin and related areas are so complex that frequently the best treatment solution is in fact a mixture of beneficial substances.

Effecitiveness

Just as drinking a cup of hot water and then munching some tea leaves does not have the same effect as drinking a cup of brewed tea and boiling water in the right proportions, so with a cream or lotion for a particular purpose.  We carefully look at what you need, and then create a mixture of the best ingredients in the best mixture to best satisfy those needs.

And (once again!) all active ingredients are only from natural origins.

 

Natural Ingredients

Many of Katharine Botanicals products contain Organic Calendula, an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory which soothes irritated tissue. Katharine Botanicals products are hypo-allergenic and naturally effective.

LilliesNO Parabens or Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
Katharine Botanicalsdoes not allow the use of parabens or sodium lauryl sulphate in any of our products so you may rest assured on that question.

Eco-Friendly
All Katharine Botanicals products come in recyclable containers, as we care as much about the environment as you do.  All Katharine Botanicals products are fully biodegradable.

Animal Friendly

Katharine Botanicals adheres to the highest standards of animal friendliness and are fully accredited by the Vegan Society.  Look for their logoson our products.  The Vegan Society demands the highest standards of eco-friendliness from their members. None of our products or ingredients have been tested on animals for over 30 years.

Look for our products on the Vegan Society website and in their relevant publications.

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    World Psoriasis Day takes place on the 29th of October each year and serves as a podium for people to experience psoriasis to offer their accounts of living with the condition. Though one of the first skin diseases to be recognised psoriasis continues to be misunderstood and those that experience it discover large amounts of misinformation available. World Psoriasis Day is attempting to combat this confusion by encouraging those who experience psoriasis to post pictures of themselves with testimonials.

  • Hug a Vegan This September

    Many consider a vegan lifestyle to be very rewarding and it's certainly easier on our environment. Whether you're aiming to eat nothing that comes from an animal or ensure that you're not using products that use animal products or participate in animal testing, these are all elements that reduce cruelty and pollution. Recent studies have shown that methane from livestock accounts for more greenhouse gasses in the UK than our roads and trains combined! And animal testing accounts for thousands of animals that are forced to endure discomfort for human cosmetic needs. This is why Katharine Botanicals offers a wide range of products that are entirely vegan.

    As the internet makes it easier for conscientious shoppers to make ethical choices, it's also easier than ever to discover the benefits of making these choices when you purchase. In fact, PETA recently held a celebration just for vegans called "hug a vegan day". Last year it was all about vegetarians and now vegans are getting the love from PETA! The official hug a vegan day was held last Friday on the 27th of September but we feel that there is all the time in the world to show your appreciation for all the good things nature has to offer.

  • Ethically Aware Consumers Demand More From Their Cosmetics

    A recent report from The Soil Association shows that a more ethically aware group of shoppers are taking their business online to ensure that they're purchasing products with the transparency they crave. This is both regarding organic food and other products, including cosmetics.

    In fact, the organic cosmetic industry grew by 5.6% last year and now stands at a value of £31.8m.

  • Sunlight and Benefits to Psoraisis

    Whilst the recent weather has been somewhat unpredictable, we can also say that this has been one of the brightest summers that the UK has enjoyed for some time. This is an excellent opportunity for suffers of psoriasis to enjoy sunlight and the vitamin D that comes with it. Vitamin D and ultra violet light are both completely natural elements that can help to soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. Ultra violet light is already used as a medical treatment by many doctors, where synthesised UVB rays are created with sun lamps. Injections are also utilised to encourage the skin to soak up even more of the beneficial UV light but I’m sure most would rather a natural course of sunbathing. This bright sunshine gives many who live with psoriasis the chance to enjoy a free and completely natural course of UV light and all the benefits that come with it.
