Pure, Organic and Cruelty Free products for beautiful, glowing skin. Nothing but Nature.
About this project
Howe’s Organic & Vegan is a skincare company which uses only Organic and Cruelty Free ingredients. There are no parabens, preservatives, petro-chemicals, artificial fragrances or artificial colourants. Just Pure Plant power, Bottled. Customers can be sure with Howe’s that what is in our bottles is 100% natural.
Currently, I have created 4 products:
- Cleansing Face Oil,
- Enriching Face Oil
- Revitalizing Eye Serum
- Conditioning Body Oil
I have spoken to local health food shops and beauty salons about stocking my products and they have all been very positive.
My next hurdle is getting the stock ready. I need to print the labels I have designed. Buy more ingredients and bottles.
Once this is done, the products will be sent off to get EU certified. This involves testing the products and analysing their formulas etc. None of this will involve animals!
I need to get my website up and running, I have purchased the domain and have a holding site up at the minute. www.howesorganicandvegan.com. Once I have stock, I can begin to sell my range through the website directly to customers.
Next step after that will be applying for certification from The Vegan Society and Soil Association and if successful then of adding those logos to my labels and reprinting.
I have many more products I hope to make and get out there for the public. These include Bath Oils, Beard Oils, Naturally Fragranced Oils and Organic Muslin Face Cloths to name but a few.
I’ve been super busy getting all of these things sorted so haven’t had much time to get a project video. But its on my to do list!
Risks and challenges
So far, I have designed my packaging and labels, (having a degree in graphic design helped!) and I have sourced a good local company to do the printing for me.
I have registered the domain name and have a holding site up.
My next step is getting the labels printed and the packaging put together. Then its heads down to get the products made and bottled!
I hope to apply for Vegan Society certification and also Organic Soil Association certification. Having these logos on my packaging would be amazing!
