Let me ask you a question – would you go to any dentist in any town for your routine check-up? Are you happy to go to any hairdresser who has an appointment? The answer will be no! – we do business with those we like, know, and trust!
As customers we want to know if we can ‘like, know, and trust’ the companies we buy from, so in this series we ask the person behind some of my favourite natural and organic companies to step out into the spotlight.
It’s the turn of Kathryn Danzey from Rejuvenated Ltd
Tell us about yourself and your company…
At Rejuvenated we are a small family brand and have worked on the concept of beauty from within for over 23 years. We made the connection early on, it seemed logical to us that what you put inside would reflect on the outside. In 2003 we discovered that actually taking collagen could improve not only the skin but also help overall health. At the time we could only get collagen in a tablet form – the maximum dosage available was in 200 mg tablets – but early trials showed that the best effects were achieved by taking 10,000 mg. It was at this time that I came up with the concept of creating a drink with 10,000 mg in; it was very much a creation of my imagination. What if we could make a drink that would really make an improvement to our skin, one that was so potent it would give a visible difference?
You see, I really wanted and needed this product and if I needed it I knew other people would too. Since, we have created more products to focus on health and well-being and are thrilled to be selling our range around the world.
How did you get started?
I’ve been in the beauty industry for over 40 years and have seen incredible developments in that time. However no matter how good a treatment is, unless the foundations for good skin are in place then your skin will never look at its best.
What were you doing in a previous life?
I started training in beauty at the age of 17 and have been so lucky to work with some amazing inspirational people. It’s an incredible industry and one that we can make a difference to how people look and feel
Why natural / organic / sustainable?
Our products are formulated with ethically sourced natural ingredients and where possible organic. They are free from gluten, lactose, suitable for diabetics and other than Collagen Shots (marine) and Veggiecol (eggs) they are suitable for vegans.
We wanted our customers to feel confident and trust our brands integrity and ingredients.
What’s your USP? What sets you apart from your competitors?
Our products are created with maximum potency to really make a difference to how you look and feel. We would always say ‘you on a good day and most days are good days’, because isn’t that how we all want to feel.
Our growth has been down to that potency and the wonderful comments that we receive from our customers. We are also delighted to have been winners of Janey Loves Platinum Award in 2015
What kind of feedback you have received from clients?
Glynis Barber is just one of our famous clients: ‘You will see more results in your skin with Collagen Shots than any skin potion I can think of.’
“Fantastic products that I can’t be without, I love the Collagen shots! I take these with H3O Night Repair and have never looked back. Service is fantastic, professional and quick!’
‘I am using the Collagen Shots for the last 2 years and my skin is so soft and smooth! Love it!
What’s the next big launch / project coming up for you?
We are excited to be developing Beautyfuel – the first product in the range will be an organic pea protein ‘cuppa soup’. Packed with the goodness of whole freeze-dried vegetables, antioxidants, fibre and omega 3. It will nourish, counting as one of your five a day and support your skin all in one.
What’s your big dream?
We have been thrilled by our growth and development, what started as a passion to create products to support our customers well being and confidence, now brings us orders from around the world. If we can inspire our customers to feel their most healthy and have assurance in the way they look, then that would be wonderful.
