Our Products

Made in England

We design, test and manufacture all our own products at our eco-headquarters in Dorset, England. It's also home to our own team of experts, who create our award-winning products in the state-of-the-art labs.

Grow your own

We do. We know the origins of all our herbs and ingredients. We grow as many as we can in our gardens in Peacemarsh, Dorset and at Sheepdrove Organic Farm on the Lambourn Downs in Berkshire.

Greener by design

Our eco-factory uses solar panels on the roof, clay flooring and high-level windows to keep cool, and uses rainwater to flush the loos! We even compost the kitchen waste, which is mostly organic, of course!

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

We've followed this mantra for years. Everything that can be recyclable is.

10 ingredients to look out for when choosing natural & organic beauty products

At Neal’s Yard Remedies, we follow the Precautionary Principle – you won’t find anything in our products we believe could cause you or the planet harm, just lots of ethically sourced, natural and organic herbs, botanicals and essential oils.
We believe what you leave out of a product can be as important as what you put in – you’ll never find any of these in our products.

  • DEA/TEA derivatives - Associated with known carcinogens.
  • EDTA - A powerful metal ion chelator that doesn’t biodegrade readily.
  • Parabens - Many have lack of data on safety and concerns have been raised over estrogen-like activity.
  • Phthalates - Some phthalates are very toxic and they have been banned from EU products and other main markets. We have decided to “ban” them all, just in case.
  • Silicones - Synthetically produced emollients – we use organic vegetable oils instead.
  • Genetically Modified ingredients - Not enough is known about long-term implications.
  • Synthetic fragrances - Often hidden under the term ‘Parfum’ on ingredients lists, some synthetic fragrances can trigger allergies and asthma.
  • BHT - A petroleum derived ingredient, which is toxic to the aquatic environment.
  • Mineral oils - Derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource from a polluting industry.
  • Triclosan - Research indicates this ingredient may contribute to antibiotic resistance in bacteria.

We create our health and beauty by using the maximum organic, natural and wild-harvested ingredients available, making them kinder to the earth – and kinder to you.

Animal Testing
We have never tested on animals, it is unnecessary and cruel. We’re certified by Cruelty Free International.

Look for the Zero
Look for the Zero We have been running the 'Beat the Microbead' campaign since 2012. The objective of the campaign is to prevent plastic microbeads in personal care products ending up in the sea. We have asked consumers to stop using products containing microbeads. The Beat the Microbead app makes it easy to check whether a product contains plastic.

However, recent research (UNEP report 'Plastic in Cosmetics', 2015) shows that many more types of plastics are added to personal care products than previously thought. It also shows that some plastic microbeads are replaced with bio-based/bio-degradable microbeads which do not break down in water. On top of this, the use of nanoplastics in cosmetics is a worrying development. It makes it very difficult for consumers to choose 'plastic free' products.

This is why we change the burden of proof. Instead of consumers having to check and choose, we are asking producers to declare their care products free of microplastics. Plastic free products will be included in the new Zero category of the Beat the Microbead website and app. The brands that do not use microplastics can carry the 'Zero plastic inside' logo. In one glance, this logo makes it clear for consumers that a product is guaranteed 100% free of microplastics.

Neal's Yard Remedies is 100% free of microplastics:

Fair prices and decent working conditions in exchange for high quality, sustainably-sourced ingredients.

We use ethically traded ingredients throughout our ranges. Here are some of the fantastic organisations we are proud to support.

Fairtrade
Fairtrade The Fairtrade Foundation is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

Fair for Life

FairWild
FAIRWILD Established in 2008, the FairWild Foundation promotes the sustainable use of wild-collected ingredients, with a fair deal for all those involved throughout the supply chain.

Certified organic
Certified organic Our pure herb and plant extracts and essential oils are approved by the UK's Soil Association, who are internationally recognized for their high standards, though as we source globally, some ingredients may be certified at source by a number of similar international organizations such as USDA, NOP, Skal, etc. Foreign certification is always checked for compliance with Soil Association standards before being approved for our use.

More about the Soil Association
Formed in 1946 to address concerns over intensive farming practices introduced after WWII, especially the introduction of pesticides such as DDT, the Soil Association has an illustrious history of campaigning for the responsible, sustainable and ethical management of our resources.
With a reputation for upholding the 'gold standard' of certification, and representing 80% of organic goods sold in the UK, the Soil Association's strict criteria applies standards over and above the minimum legal requirements. It is considered one of the most stringent of organic certification bodies anywhere in the world.
Over 60% of the Neal's Yard Remedies product range is certified by the Soil Association. Even where a product cannot be certified, we still use organic ingredients that have been certified by the Soil Association or the USDA, to ensure the highest possible organic percentage.
