Meet the flounder

I’m called the Flounder because no one is perfect and I wanted everyone to know that. One of our favourite lines, and a line that you will see on many of our products is "I may not be perfect but at least I'm not fake", it applies to our products but also our employees, suppliers and customers. People like honest, humble people and at Beauty Kitchen we believe in being transparent but brave and admitting you're not perfect is a pretty good start!

When I scratched beneath the surface of the hype on many beauty products I found that so few were as natural as they claimed or that the claims they bamboozle you with are just clever marketing. When I didn't find much truth it motivated me to start Beauty Kitchen.

I opened Beauty Kitchen’s first store in Glasgow. Noticing a gap in the market for truly 100% natural products, 100% effective and affordable. Beauty Kitchen has now grown from a shop in Glasgow to being stocked in Holland & Barrett stores nationwide and being featured on ITV’s This Morning.

I originally studied Chemistry at university and went on to become a qualified herbal botanist, my passion for using natural ingredients stemmed from there. I continue to take inspiration from reading about scientific advancement in this area as well as talking to other members of the local bee keeping association.

The natural world provides us with so many great sustainable resources (as long as we look after it and give it a helping hand when needed) and 9 times out of 10 the natural ingredients work as well if not better than synthetic ones. That's why I’m passionate about 100% natural and no less!

Also, being green in the 21st century is all about being aware, making the right choices and doing what you can. I'm a bit of a Womble, making good use of the things that I find! Overall, it's the everyday things that matter and we can all make a difference.With plenty of inspiration in the world and a great Beauty Kitchen team we will continue to develop 100% natural, 100% effective and affordable products.
