Who are we?
I'm Emily and Olive and Joyce are my grandmothers. My story and my business really belongs to them. I make delicious skincare creams from the ingredients I discovered as a child in their kitchen cupboards and vegetable plots. My great, great grandmother was a herbalist, my mum an aromatherapist. I come from a gorgeous line of magnificent women who knew how to care for skin. It’s not just about skin, you see, it’s about loving, nurturing and caring for ourselves, like we do our children, our loved ones and everyone else!
Skincare doesn’t need to be full of chemicals. It took me twenty frustrating years to realise this. During my twenties and thirties, I entrusted my ‘problem’ skin to the huge, commercial beauty industry which made my skin worse. I realised I needed to go home, back into the family kitchen, and start experimenting.
My first skincare baby to arrive was my hyper-pigmentation face cream, ‘The Balance’. With the right holistic ingredients, my skin settled and calmed, and my confidence grew. I have more creams now, each unique, perfectly formed and equally loved.
My mantra is ‘if I won’t eat it, it won’t go on my skin’. I research and create every recipe, make each cream and wrap each order. Olive and Joyce is my business, but they are also my grandmothers and all the other women who know how gorgeous and cherished you are. Each nutritious dollop from
each beautiful jar is an expression of loving appreciation.
Olive & Joyce skincare range cares for you, for animals and our environment.
