Pure Lakes create natural skin care and toiletries to gently cleanse, moisturise and soothe the body whilst also minimising the environmental impact.
Pure lakes create their own formulas using pure plant oils and butters or ingredients derived from these raw materials with the minimum of processing. Ingredients are mostly organic and derived from traceable, sustainable sources. Gentle alternatives to detergents and preservatives are often more expensive and tricky to work with but Pure Lakes have a passion for bringing you natural products. Essential oils are unique, like olive oil and wine, the exact constituents vary depending on the place and time they were grown. For this reason they make everything by hand in small batches.
Pure lakes founders Sandra and Iain set and intention to offer luxurious, hand-made toiletries at affordable prices and they achieve this by keeping packaging to a minimum. The really good news is that this also cuts down on waste, Pure Lakes recognise their responsibility to manage their environmental impact as a business and they also re-use or recycle all the packaging they receive from their Suppliers. The couple are passionate about running the business responsibly – 95% of waste is reused or recycled and they have sourced 100% recycled plastic bottles. This has resulted in several environmental awards including an Environmental Excellence award and ‘Green Hero’ award from the Environment Agency.
