More than Skin Deep

 NATURAL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS  … That Don’t Cost The Earth

Take a moment to count the ingredients in the jar of cream sitting on your dressing table.  I have counted over thirty in some commercial creams!

Do you understand the ingredients?

There is a wide variety of animals whose by-products are used in cosmetics and toiletries.  These include the humble Bee, Beaver, Bird, Civet Cat, Cow, Crab, Fish, Goat, Mink, Musk/Deer/Ox, Otter, Pig, Silkworm, Shark, Shrimp, Sheep, Sperm Whale, and more.

Our skin can absorb up to 60% of what is applied to it and a recent survey suggests that the average woman can absorb up to two kilograms of chemicals through her skin every year by simply using everyday commercial skin products.

In contrast, Skindulge creams and lotions are made by hand using just a handful of ingredients compared to those made commercially.  As a result, they are less likely to provoke sensitive reactions. Our bespoke service means that you can choose exactly what goes into our preparations which will suit your own skin and its needs. You can test the results to be sure it doesn’t upset your skin.

Also,  on this post we will add all sorts of ideas and recipes for you to create you

When I first decided to build a webpage for Skindulge, I intended to sell my soaps and lotions through it.  As time has gone by, it has instead become my Soapbox for holding forth about the ridiculously high prices that are charged for Skin Creams.

If you are interested in buying any of my products please contact me, either through Facebook or through the details given on the Contact Me page of my website.

Otherwise, read through my website and you should find all kinds of alternative ways to keep your skin fresh and clean.


The Babylonians are the first civilization in the recorded history to use ‘soaps’. It was around 2800 BC but their documents don’t us give a clear picture as to why the ‘soaps’ were used. An Egyptian medical document of 1500 BC, however, talks of a soap-like substance which was used for washing. The soap of the Egyptians was more like a paste and less like a solid brick.


Rapeseed Wax is the most environmentally friendly candle wax you can use.  Rapeseed is the third most important vegetable oil in the world after Soybean and Palm.  It is believed to be one of the oldest crops known to man.  Recordings have been found in India dating back to 1500BC with the Chinese having records of the word for Rapeseed dating back over 2,500 years and have archaeological discoveries of Rapeseed thought to be over 5000BC (Yan 1990).
