FAQs

Skin absorbs at least 60% of what you put on it - so we keep wondering why anyone would put something on her/his skin that she/he wouldn't be willing to eat (okay, so skincare products may not tempt the taste buds - but we think you know what we mean!).

Q What's Little Herbs all about?

A We want to make the best skincare ever!  We like simple recipes and pure ingredients so that each constituent works its natural magic. We rely on tradition, with modern science to back it up.

Q What sort of herbs are Little Herbs?

A We favour the English country garden because we understand it, we live in it ourselves.  We love its herbs, flowers, seeds and bees which provide the best and the purest ingredients. And we can rely on the quality of its produce, its history and ethos.

Q What quality control is there at Little Herbs?

Our Consultant Medical Herbalist checks each recipe, working in accordance with standards set out by the National Council for Medical Herbalists.

We abide by EU Cosmetic Regulations and as such comply with certification requirements and register our products accordingly.

Q. Can your packaging be recycled?

A. Containers are glass which is made of silica, sand and fire. Nothing from it can leach into the contents. Or out. It is easy to recycle.

Lids are aluminium. They too are the 'greenest' solution we could find.

There are small amounts of plastic in the pumps and pump straws. We have only used pumps where absolutely necessary.

Card boxes, tissue and postal wrapping all contain as much recycled material  as possible. Some bags are constructed from handmade plant paper.

Ribbon and printing ink are the best we can find on environmental terms. 

We try to ask all our suppliers about our environmental policies.

Q. What sort of safety procedures and testing do you carry out?

A. We research our ingredients to ensure user safety and efficacy.

Our consultant herbalist checks each and every product recipe.

Products carry safety certificates in compliance with European Community directives. 

Products are tested on us, our friends and family. No animal is used to test any ingredient or product; we insist on similar guarantees from suppliers.
