‘A celebration of plants and flowers’
Founded by Jemma Ricketts
Handmade in Shaftsbury, Dorset
“Enchanted Plants started from my personal love of plants since childhood and their endless potential for improving our health and well being. My mother and grandfather were passionate gardeners. I grew up with a firm understanding of that special relationship between plants and people.
After completing a degree in Health Science and Medicinal Plants at Westminster University in London in 2002 with a specialism in treating skin conditions. I returned home to my roots in the country and started the company based in Dorset, in 2006.
We create beautiful, artisan certified organic skincare and soap using my knowledge of plants and the finest ingredients. I take delight in crafting these ingredients into unique beneficial blends for naturally beautiful and healthy skin. I think of everything we make as a celebration of plants and flowers and a means by which we can all benefit from their magic every day.”
Our mission as a beauty brand
Great care is taken in sourcing the highest quality, vibrant plant ingredients for our products and as much care in making sure the ingredients are truly certified organic and from a responsible source, in terms of fair trade and sustainability.
This year we are proud to say we have met the very high organic and natural standards of the Soil Association certification process and all our products are now certified as organic and natural. This means you can be sure that our products meet the highest organic, ethical and environmental standards and each year we are assessed to uphold these in all that we do.
We love British grown, certified organic ingredients. They have a special quality to them and we source as many as we can for the beauty and heritage they give our products. Each recipe we make is independently assessed to comply to the highest standard of the 2013 European Union Cosmetic Safety Regulations and manufacturing good practice.
The soap on a rope is made by hand to our unique, old fashioned recipe and hand stamped with our logo. After taking up to six weeks to cure, our scented soaps are then wrapped by hand in recycled paper and labeled with vegetable ink print and are a long lasting joy to use everyday.
