Award-winning, 100% natural lip balms made using only organic beeswax, plant oils, pure essential oils, natural aromas and botanical extracts. 80% of the ingredients have been grown, produced or manufactured in the UK resulting in an eco-friendly lip balm with no compromise on quality or effectiveness.
Fairfield Gardens was born from a desire to do something meaningful that was rooted in sustainability and green living. A few years ago it occurred to me that although food miles and buying locally produced food were common concepts, the idea of beauty miles and using local ingredients in skin care products was less so. The ingredients used to make soap and other skin care products can travel thousands of miles - shea and cocoa butter from West Africa, coconut oil from Indonesia for example. So I decided to try to create a product that predominantly used ingredients that were grown, produced or manufactured in Britain. After a couple of years of research and development, the result is a 100% natural lip balm, made in Britain, with 80% British ingredients. I am constantly on the lookout for new and effective home-grown ingredients to push that percentage even higher.
With Fairfield Gardens I hope to create a strong British brand that captures the essence of British manufacturing - innovation and quality.
