What I enjoy with these Made in Wiltshire features are the variety of topics and people I get to write about. I’ve thus far written about artists, a wood turner and a pen maker and a writer.
In this post though I’m delighted to feature the lovely Carol Aplin, a Swindon-based maker of hand-made, organic and vegan-friendly skincare that goes under the brand of Pink&Green.
I’ve known Carol for a few years now. We met when we were both at the start of our business journeys and have gone on to become friends and mutual clients. By which I mean, Carol avails herself of my editorial services and I buy her stuff!
They are gorgeous products – and I’m really not ‘just’ saying that.
Pictured below are a couple of my all time fave Pink&Green products.
The best-selling, multi-purpose One Balm and the Frankincense luxury moisturizer. These and the divine facial exfoliator are my personal P&G staples though I do use several other products too.
The Pink&Green Ethos
Carol began her organic skincare company, back in 2014, after many years working as an holistic therapist. She explains on her website how, during time as a practising therapist, she taught her clients how important it is that they make time for themselves. To pay attention to their skin – to what it was telling them – and then to act upon that message.
Carol is steadfast in her belief that what you put on your skin should help you to both look and feel wonderful. She weaves that self-care ethos through her range of organic skin care products.
For those of you – and it’s more and more of us these days – that care about such things, Pink&Green products are formulated with natural ingredients that aren’t tested on animals.
But rather than me waffling on why don’t you listen to Carol herself talk about what she does and why? Here she talks about her ‘Ah-ha!’moment – how the Pink&Green brand came into being: https://youtu.be/k5qqZqmMCo4
While on this one https://www.facebook.com/iwork4uglos/videos/1577266832318253/– Carol talks to/is interviewed by the owner of the business directory, IWork4UGlos about some of her products.
Buy it online or see it at the salons
Carol sells her products to individuals via her online shop which you can browse here. There she has a multitude of fans such as myself. But, increasingly she is working with salons.
Should you be a salon or spa owner – or you know a salon that you think should stock Pink&Green products find out the full details here.
Having run salons in the past, P&G are super aware of the challenges faced by salon owners. Which is why they don’t now, and will not, impose onerous conditions on you. Nor do they dictate to you how you should run your business. It is after all your business. As Carol says:
‘Every business is different. We listen to YOU and help YOU in a way that best suits YOU.’
