Many high street skincare products contain synthetic chemicals whose long-term effects are unknown. These include parabens, petro-chemicals, synthetic alcohols, DEA/MEA/TEA, petrolatum and isopropyl, along with many others linked to various ailments.
In contrast, organic health and beauty products do not contain harmful chemicals, artificial additives, genetic modification or pesticides. All the companies listed below are committed to organic principles. They offer everything from natural skincare products, hair shampoos, organic soaps, lotions, toiletries and bath salts to herbs and nutritional supplements.
Like most of the links on this site, you'll find new and exciting products not available in shops or other outlets!
"Now that I've got kids, it's become really important for me on the health front to try to buy as much organic produce as possible." — Jamie Oliver, UK celebrity chef, in BBC Good Food magazine

Reviews and feedback
"From the very first day I attended a course run by him in London a couple of years ago now - it literally changed the way I look at natural products. I make ALL my own creams, body butters - soap bombs - you name it! as a direct result of my contact with Aromantic." - Jenny
Aromantic Natural Skin Care. "Just had to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed your courses recently. I’ve already tried out "my" products of which I am very proud! The days were "full on" but very exciting and your company mission statement has certainly worked because I now cannot bring myself to purchase a shop made product and I'm telling everyone about the sins of using petrochemicals." - June
Beauty Naturals. "One of the nicest companies to deal with! One gets to talk to real people who seem to care about any queries and the order arrives in the twinkling of an eye. And of course, the products are just wonderful and ethical. Thank you." - Debbie
