Who are we?

Hi, I'm Sarah! I created Skin & Tonic with Josh - my boyfriend/partner-in-crime - and with inspiration and support from my master soap-making super mum, Deirdre. Josh and I met at a party in 2009 over a glass of Gin & Tonic and that was that – the unwitting union of two little like-minded dreamers.

Why we do it?

Life can suck at times and this was most definitely the case in 2010 when I was diagnosed with endometriosis. Getting sick made me simplify my lifestyle and pay more attention to what I was putting into and onto my body. I researched skincare and soon discovered most products are full of nasty synthetic chemicals that were carcinogenic and endocrine disrupters. I started to make skincare for myself using simple, organic ingredients. In no time, a persistent case of dermatitis disappeared and my skin looked, and felt, great.
 So why couldn’t I buy something similar to this in the shops? I couldn’t find a single product that was completely free from synthetics and preservatives.There was nothing out there that was simple, straight-talking, organic and cool!
 So I decided to do something about it.
