Natural Wisdom Organics

Boutique artisan formulator and manufacturer of luxury eco skincare, haircare and perfumery.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us, who we are, what we stand for and what we do.

Natural WIsdom is a small independent artisan manufacturing company built on strong eco ethical values, making fresh skincare, hair care and solid perfumes in tiny batches since 2007.

Our Founder

Maeve is the founder of Natural Wisdom Organics and the creator and formulator of our entire range of Skincare, Haircare and Solid Perfumes.

A Homeopath and natural health mentor since 2005, Maeve also studied Pathology and Disease, Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine as well as bio-chemistry. Her background in Natural Health and her combined passion for Ecology, Nutrition and Herbal Medicine together with her strong eco ethical values are the inspiration behind all of her recipes and everything we do.

How it all began

Her mission to create her own range of Skincare products began in 2006 when she traveled with her three children, aged six, nine and eleven to Ecuador in South America to volunteer for nearly four months. Concerned about the potential side effects of using conventional anti-malaria medication, sunscreen and insect repellents multiple times daily, Maeve was determined to find alternative options to keep her family safe, especially as two of their group had sensitive, reactive skin and a history of eczema. For six months before embarking on their journey, she researched every possible alternative. The knowledge and wisdom she discovered made her fall in love with the art and science of natural skincare formulation..

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. Mahatma Gandhi

During her research to find products to protect without causing harm she realised she would have to make her own products if she was going to avoid over 3 months of having to apply daily chemical skinsults (skin insults) to her children skin, she explains.

“Having studied chemistry, it was a natural step for me to research skincare in greater depth so I spent months researching hundreds of skincare ingredients, what they were made from, what made them work, their environmental impact, toxicity concerns and safe alternative ingredients that could offer similar, the same, or better results. Maeve

So.. Off they went to South America with home made insect repellents and anti malarial herbs. Their kit bag was huge but it turned out to be well worth the extra luggage.

“By the time we returned to the UK, the financial crash was in free fall and we were faced with having to adapt to a very different set of personal circumstances. We moved to the Isle of Wight where I spent the next two years researching and working on my formulations, trying out different methods and comparing the different qualities of ingredients available by testing them against each other rigorously. I was determined to create cold blended skin food using premium food grade ingredients.” Maeve

In the beginning her recipes were very disappointing and for a long time, Maeve seemed to have one setback after another. Finally, in 2010 she had her first real breakthrough but her setbacks didnt end there. Maeve has nurtured and nourished Natural Wisdom through many personally challenging times, never giving up on her dream of creating extraordinary skincare products and the results of her many years of finely tweaking her recipes are these luxuriously indulgent skincare products made from exceptional quality ingredients that are 100 percent free of cheap, weak fillers and nonsense ingredients.

I created all of my skincare products to be much more than just kind to our skin, because our skin is so much more than just our outer covering. Its the outside of our inside and although it has evolved to protect us, our skin is sensitive and vulnerable and constantly under attack so it also needs our protection too. Thats why I make raw organic skincare products that will feed, nourish, protect and love our skin, thats Natural Wisdom and this is one of the ways we dare to be different. Maeve

And now...

The Natural Wisdom Mission hasn’t changed since 2007.

To create luxuriously indulgent, organic Self Care products that help us meet the challenges of our changing times. Increased environmental pollution and Climate change being just two of the challenges we face today and our children will face tomorrow, without causing harm and with a pledge to be as waste free as it is possible to be.
