At natilia, our aims are quite simple: we want to create the most intensely moisturising and soothing skincare for dry, sensitive skin. And to balance this with the well-being of our natural environment. For us “well-being” means giving nature a helping hand, not simply maintaining it.
Here’s just one small example:
Sweet-smelling lime blossom is well-known for its soothing, skin conditioning properties. Which is why all of our products contain organic lime blossom, sourced from neighbouring Switzerland.
Because of these useful properties, the lime (or linden) trees are very carefully tended. In return, the healthy lime tree produces an abundance of creamy white, fragrant blossom providing much-needed pollen and nectar to hard-working bees and butterflies. Our supplier only collects the blossom once the pollinators have had their feast and the tree sheds the blossom. So we can use a wonderful botanical skincare ingredient and at the same time support the local ecosystem.
Sensitive skin needs gentle care to help keep it healthy and balanced. That’s why our products are free from alcohol, cleansing agents such as SLS/SLES (sodium lauryl sulphate/sodium laureth sulphate) and essential oils. We use only pure natural ingredients which treat your skin gently. Our products have been dermatologically tested and were awarded the top grade – including for testers with eczema and allergy-prone, sensitive skin.
We always consider the wider consequences of any decision we make - such as sourcing our ingredients as locally as possible and so helping minimise our environmental footprint. Our ingredients are certified organic or natural source: ingredients from plants which are not only beneficial to dry, sensitive skin, but to the environment as well.
We choose our ingredients with great care: not only do we consider the environment, but we also want to support small, local producers wherever possible. One example is our organic shea butter which we source from a women’s collective group in Northern Uganda in East Africa.
The 20-year brutal civil war left more than 40% of the population living in poverty. Sourcing our shea butter from this group means we are able to help improve the lives of the local community. And dry, sensitive skin benefits from the especially rich, soothing shea butter from this region.
Using carefully selected, certified ingredients sourced from nature’s rich treasure trove, we have created an exceptional range of products to help you achieve happy, healthy, glowing skin. With the well-being of our natural environment and its resources very much in mind and by doing some good for people and our precious planet on the way, we hope that using our natilia products makes you feel good too.
