When people ask what I do I tell them that “I make and sell natural deodorants and shampoo and conditioner bars” …
What I really want to say is
“I love essential oils and I’m passionate about plastic free packaging”
I lose my life to box sets, I spend hours in a bubble bath and love nothing better than going to a beauty show for a whole day of self indulgence and talking to other beauty brand owners.
Im Dale Campbell and I love nothing more than spending time in the kitchen, never ever cooking but making natural products.
I started reacting to something in my usual bubble bath a few years back so needed to find a bubble bath that I could use. I found the amazing Neal’s Yard Remedies and joined as a consultant. I learned so much about products and the environment and caring about our bodies, what we use and the impact we have on the planet.
I also have to admit that sometimes I do not smell as fresh as I would like to but did not want to use anti-perspirant deodorants anymore. I wanted to avoid alumimnium salts that block your sweat ducts, as sweating is natural and good for your body. I did not want to smell bad though. After trying a few natural deodorants that never quite worked for the whole day I decided, as you do, that I would make my own.
After much trial and error I found a formula that worked for me, ever after excercise! I was pretty pleased but wondered if it would work on other people. So I tried it out on family and friends and got amazing feedback. I researched into what you would need to do to bring a product to market.
A chemist has certified my recipes and as you can say the rest is history and POSY was born.
My natural deodorants have received amazing feedback. The proof is in the using of it – try it you won’t regret it. Ingredients you understand that won’t do any harm to the environment.
I have completed a course in natural haircare, so there is an education behind the shampoo and conditioner bars. I am currently doing an aromatherapy course to expand my knowledge about essential oils and their benefits.
It took me ages to find a paperboard tube, but I’m happy to say that they are becoming more common. I love the idea of no packaging, so a shampoo bar and a conditioner bar eliminate the need for a single use plastic bottle.
I think Im going to be rather passionate about bars.
POSY is stocked in a some shops. I am making firm friends with other eco-friendly entrepreneurs and customers so it is onwards and upwards for POSY.
