Julia’s Story – The Birth of NATHEO Natural Skincare
“A fully qualified Chartered Accountant, I gave up a busy career entailing 50 percent international travel to bring up my two sons. A life-long lover of skincare & beauty products, I first started to think about creating my own natural skin care products because I wanted to reduce the number of artificial ingredients I applied to my skin. I loved trying different skin care products but found that my skin sometimes suffered from breakouts of spots or patches of dry skin. On looking at some natural skincare ranges I was disappointed that the texture and/or scent failed to live up to the premium brands I had been using, or I found that some so-called natural products contained ingredients that I would rather avoid.
I enrolled with Formula Botanica, internationally-renowned organic skincare school, and studied for their Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. Here I started my journey to create gorgeous skincare products from natural vegetable oils and butters and plant extracts. I also discovered more natural or more skin-friendly versions of ingredients such as preservatives and emulsifiers, and began to learn the art of combining essential oils to produce wonderful, beneficial & truly natural fragrances. Studying with Formula Botanica encouraged me to do lots of research into natural skincare ingredients and formulations and I started to create all my own skincare products.
With more research and experimentation, I discovered that it really was possible to create beauty products with a luxurious feel and fragrance from nature’s finest ingredients that didn’t irritate my skin and actually significantly improved its texture and appearance. I loved the formulations I was coming up with and had great feedback from family and friends, so I decided to bring my products to the market as NATHEO Natural Skincare, a name inspired by my two young sons.
I really hope you enjoy using NATHEO Natural Skincare products as much as I enjoy creating and using them myself.”
