Why Choose Small Batch Skincare?
Fresh, ethical and handcrafted on a micro-scale, I want to share with you a few reasons I believe small batch skincare deserves a place in your beauty routine!
Small batch skincare ingredients are fresh and potent
Think of it this way - when it comes to food, fresh is best. You wouldn’t think twice about throwing away yogurt past the used by date, right?
Food products on supermarket shelves that last longest are usually packed with preservatives. These preservatives can compromise the overall quality of the food and every day it sits on the shelf, the nutritional value dwindles a little more.
Fresh vegetables vs canned vegetables - there’s no argument about which is best for you!
It’s the same story for skincare and small batch skincare ingredients are at their freshest.
They’re far more potent than a mass-produced formulation packed with preservatives that's been stored for months (or years!) before you use it.
We don’t use artificial preservatives, artificial fragrances or any other synthetic compounds at The Health Honey. Every ingredient is fresh and there to deliver a specific benefit for the skin.
Small batch skincare has a shorter shelf life - which is a good thing. It means the potency of vitamins and minerals aren’t compromised by prolonged storage or being combined with synthetic preservatives.
Our skincare is stored in fridges and protected spaces to ensure the product’s absolute freshness when it reaches your skin.
Free from harmful chemicals
Choosing small batch skincare means you’ll skip the nasty toxins found in so many mass-produced, commercial products
Some of the common chemical culprits include:
SODIUM LAUREL SULPHATE (SLS)
PARABENS: (ETHYL, BUTYL, METHYL, PROPYL)
PROPYLENE GLYCOL OR PEGS
ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE & PERFUMES
These chemicals can cause a whole range of issues, from rashes and breakouts through to more severe symptoms like breathing issues or interfering with the body's endocrine system.
There are many environmental stressors our skin deals with every day that we don’t have much control over. I believe we need to make conscious choices about the things we can control including what we eat and the products we put onto our skin lower our exposure to chemicals.
Most small batch skincare have an ethical and sustainable focus
I believe you’ll find the overwhelming majority of small batch skincare lines have deep ethical roots.
Sustainable and ethical skincare considers the treatment of the land, producers, product purity, packaging and how the products are tested.
Skincare is part of our daily lives and switching to products with a sustainable focus is a simple way to create a beauty routine that’s a little gentler on the earth.
Small batch creators know their products inside out!
There’s something so personal about artisanal, small batch skincare.
As small batch producers, we know our stuff! Passionate about natural skincare, our products ranges are usually born as a solution to a skin issue we’ve dealt with personally.
I created my first skincare oil, Wonders for Wrinkles at home on my kitchen counter and my passion and wealth of skincare knowledge as well as my holistic beauty secrets are present in each of my products.
Product creativity and adaptability are also unique benefits of small batch skincare that big manufacturers just can’t emulate. Subtle modifications to a formulation from feedback or experimentation means the range can continue to evolve with the customers best skin interests at heart.
When you know all the effort and care that goes crafting a product, I also think it makes you a little more inclined to take a breath and enjoy a self-care moment of nourishing your skin!
