Usually these blog posts are about wellness, and wellbeing but this one is a little different - this one is about giving back and saying thank you to each and every one of our customers, supporters, buyers and followers who have invested in us and watched us grow over the last 5 years - a journey that has included expanding into retail, winning 14+ awards and becoming an official retail partner for National Trust sites in Cornwall.
Anyone who sets up a business knows that it takes time, passion and heartfelt dedication to see that business grow. For me the payback comes when I get a beautiful and touching customer email relaying how a product has helped them, or when I happen across a social media comment from a respected green beauty blogger saying that they love a product. It all makes me smile and helps ride out those tricky and challenging days - which we ALL face and have to contend with.
But February has been particularly special for us. Within a few busy but brilliant weeks we have:
- picked up our 13th new UK retail stockist this year (watch this space for a stockist list and map, which we will be adding to the site very shortly)
- begun talks with stockists in Germany, Sweden and Norway
- been shortlisted for one of our favourite industry beauty awards run by Fiona Konarides, a green/clean beauty and living advocate and a champion for women of all ages, sizes, races and religions
- had confirmation from the National Trust that we are to become one of their official stockists for their sites across Cornwall. This organisation helps maintain so many coastal areas across our beautiful county and it's great that their retail focus is also veering towards sustainability, and local producers, and that they recognised and appreciated our our green and botancial credentials.
So a big thank you to a crazy but fantastic February, and for a big thank you to all of you for supporting us on the way! xx
