Lovegrove Essentials products are based on five key principles:
We take a holistic approach to health, beauty and body care. Ageing is a natural part of this process and we encourage you to embrace and adapt to change.
We are clear about the natural ingredients and sustainable processes that go into making our products. We create these products ourselves in small batches so they are as fresh as possible, they are gentle on your skin and we can maintain the potency of the essential oils.
We want you to have the confidence that there are no risks associated with using our products. By producing in small batches, we use minimum levels of preservative and audit every single ingredient in our products for safety and purity. All our products are made to EU safety standards.
We manage our business and ourselves in a responsible way. We ask our suppliers those awkward questions about ingredients and packaging so that we can monitor all the systems and processes used to make the products. We recycle and reuse whenever we can. We are cruelty-free and buy our ingredients from ethical suppliers.
We use high-quality natural ingredients, and we know our products reflect the latest understanding in the relationship between cosmetics, our health, our well being, the environment and the future of our planet.
Essential oils, used properly, have many uses. When we eat whole foods, our bodies know what is needed in order to nourish and regenerate, and are able to turn these natural ingredients into what is needed. It's exactly the same with what we put on our skin. One type of oil could be suitable for lots of different skin complaints or body issues, as well as being great for, say, relieving stress or sleeping better. These ingredients are called ADAPTOGENS – being naturally compatible with our tissues, the body can take just what it needs from an essential oil.
Essential oils can be administered through the skin, through the mouth or through smell, and many oils can affect more than one system in the body. For example, peppermint oil is widely used as an inhalant to open the airways and help us to breathe. Taken as a supplement it can quiet an upset digestive tract. Applied through massage it is very useful in relieving muscle spasms, giving a feeling of icy-hot to the tissues. People often use it on the temples to relieve a headache.
Experiments have shown that essential oils have a huge part to play in protecting, supporting and healing the human body and mind. They have also shown that only good quality, real essential oils will work – cheap oils or synthetic copies will not. By being open and clear about our ingredients, production methods and formulation, we are able to give customers complete confidence that what they are using is not only safe, it can also benefit them in other ways too.
...has been developed over the last six years by a mother and daughter who wanted to approach skincare from a totally different angle.Hannah Lovegrove has developed her understanding of the skin, mind and body care from her work in holistic beauty therapy, aromatherapy and Iyengar yoga over the past 40 years.Make-up guru Hayley de Beers has worked with hundreds of women, and men, in all kinds of circumstances, listening to the issues they had with their skin and their make up, giving advice and building up their confidence.They recognise that more people need to see their skin issues and their self-esteem as part and parcel of their lifestyle. From Hayley’s point of view, diet, sleep, stress and exercise can have a huge effect on a person’s skin and the speed at which it regenerates itself. Hannah says that chronic stress is a serious condition that is often overlooked. Both agree that daily facial skin care regime and regular Facial Therapy treatment can tackle the effects of stress on the mind and body, and improve our health and well-being.Together they have created a skincare brand that harnesses the many therapeutic uses of essential oils, not just for their topical benefits on the skin, but also for their effect on the mind and the body.
Hannah trained at Chichester College in classical Health & Beauty Therapy in the 1970s. Natural cosmetics and the holistic uses of essential oils have always been her principle interests in this field. She is a qualified Aromatherapist , Reiki Practitioner, and a highly experienced Iyengar Yoga Teacher.In the Lovegrove Essentials Facial Therapy training programme, Hannah encourages Therapists to develop a true and thorough understanding of theory and practice, to develop a level of confidence in their own abilities, which allows them to relax enough to deliver top-class treatments.
