Independent beauty brand Cosy Cottage Soap has teamed up with local farm Yorkshire Lavender to create a new line of natural palm oil-free soaps. With sustainability and supporting the local economy as driving values behind the range, each bar is made using oil extracted from distilled lavender flowers grown in the local area.
Both businesses share the same ethos that natural ingredients already boast fantastic cleansing, healing and relaxation properties and don’t need to be combined with the detergents and chemicals often found in commercial brands.
Cosy Cottage Soap founder Clara Challoner Walker comments: “We’re so pleased to work with such a lovely local brand and help to create fantastic products with its high-quality lavender, which is one of our favourite ingredients to work with.
“We’ve supported a number of businesses to create their own ranges of personal care products and consider these collaborations to be fantastic examples of profitable partnerships between small businesses. Our relationship with Yorkshire Lavender also promotes how working with neighbouring companies can make operating practices more sustainable. We believe in the financial, employment and community benefits partnerships like this bring and always look to work with independent, local suppliers.”
Emma Jane Goodwill at Yorkshire Lavender adds: “Cosy Cottage Soap is not only just down the road in Malton but also understands how to celebrate our natural ingredient. Rooted in nature, lavender has long been praised for its healing and antiseptic powers. So many of our visitors enjoy immersing themselves in the scents and colours of the lavender gardens and want to recreate the experience at home. It was important for us to choose a partner who would do our lavender justice and create products that instantly transport people to the relaxation found in our fields.”
