Earthbound Organics is based in Wales and makes Organic skin care products such as; Facial Creams, Soaps, Body Oils and toners. Most of the ingredients used are certified organic and wild crafted; all of them are natural. We hand pick some of our ingredients from the hedgerows and the Welsh countryside including: Plantain, Ivy, Comfrey and Hypericum. Those not indigenous to Wales are bought from approved organic herb suppliers.
Jo believes that organic skin care is extremely important and that what we put on our skin is pure and natural since it will be absorbed into our bodies. Thus it is the high quality and purity of our ingredients that are the most important part of our production.
Significantly we don't add in any chemical preservatives such as any of the parabens. All our ingredients are listed and will be recognised as ingredients found in any kitchen and herb garden. It is this and the simplicity of her recipes that feed and nurture the skin leaving it glowing with health and vitality.

They are rich in vitamins and minerals which are beneficial and enrich the skin. Most of the herbal oils e.g. Carrot, Hypericum, Calendula, Chamomile, Arnica and Lemon balm are made using cold absorption which ensures maximum infusion of the properties of the plants.
Beeswax is used in all the creams and is from a special bee keeper living close to Jo in the welsh hills. The Rosewater Lavender water and Orange water act as mild antiseptics and are believed to help in the battle against the onset of wrinkles.
