Our Story – Who am I?
“My name is Christine. I am the face behind Bathe Botanicals. Being a qualified Beauty Therapist and Hairdresser so I have seen first-hand the problems people have when trying to find suitable skincare and haircare. I trained in beauty and hair so I would be able to advise correctly on products as well as create formulations that I know will be effective.
My working background is in Waste Management, Recycling and sustainability. To this end, I always wanted to incorporate this into the business. So we are waste-free. Everything that either comes to us or is made by us is used. I ensure that my packaging is compostable/biodegradable/free from plastics etc so you don’t have to.”
“I create natural bathing products in my purpose-built studio at my home in Country Armagh, Northern Ireland. I use only the finest butters and oils in my products as I believe that there should be no compromises when it comes to the products we use on our skin. However, I wanted these products to be sustainable with as little damage to the planet as possible.
Bathe Botanicals is basically what it says on the tin. It’s about creating a natural bathing experience by keeping things close to nature. But it’s also about luxury. I want you to have a wonderful spa-like experience when bathing as I know it can be hard to find time to visit the spa or even get 20 minutes to yourself in a busy household! This is why when you make a purchase from us you know you are getting quality and luxury at affordable prices.
All our products are produced in small batches to maintain quality and freshness. I guaranteed that we do not make more than 10 in any batch to ensure the highest quality.
All of our products have been tested and comply with the current EU Cosmetics Regulations. We are fully insured and a member of the Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers. Every cosmetic product must be assessed by a chemist to ensure it is safe. It also has to be recorded on both the European and UK Cosmetics Portal. In fact, the admin work surrounding starting a small soap business can be terrifying.”
