Centella Skincare was borne out of a desire to use natural plant ingredients to enhance and improve our skin without the need for harsh synthetic ingredients and unnecessary additives. My scientific background and my therapeutic experience as a medical herbalist places me in an ideal position to put my knowledge of the immense potential of botanical ingredients and an understanding of skin physiology into formulating a range of natural skincare products for all skin types.
The cosmetic and beauty industry is highly competitive with many companies making outrageous claims and startling ‘breakthroughs’ in skincare. Nowhere is this more apparent than in anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing creams, in addition to the more recent nanotechnology and venom-based products. My view is that Mother Nature has had the answers all along and good skincare requires effort on our part as well as simple, honest, pure and natural ingredients that have long traditions in other cultures having withstood the test of time without 21st century gimmicks and marketing hype.
A few words from some of
our happy customers
Fragrance - all the products have a beautiful delicate fragrance. Love that subtle aroma which is very natural like actually sitting in a flower garden. Massage and facial oils - a big plus point is how well the oil is absorbed by the skin leaving a non-greasy feel/look. Oils can often feel heavy and feel like they would stain clothing, linen but these are so light and well absorbed. Moisturising - the main factor is how long the skin is moisturised for after application because I often get dry skin patches coming through a couple of hours after application but these had a long-lasting effect. My skin also felt so soft after applying it. Definitely a winner. Packaging - I think in keeping with the natural and delicate theme, the packaging is perfectly suited. I love the look of the brand name. No heavy or unnecessary colour loading.
The Relaxing Massage Oil is perfect for relaxation and unwinding. The massage oil has a beautiful calming aroma with a perfect balance of different fragrances coming through. My sore, achy muscles felt so much better after using this massage oil. I look forward to using it again. The Beauty Serum is a gorgeous, non-greasy formula. My skin appeared instantly brighter. The serum was very moisturising and the skin felt more plump and soft. My daily moisturiser applied much easier and absorbed better after using the serum. Also my daughter thought it created a perfect base for applying her makeup afterwards.
I can't recommend these products highly enough. The body wash is totally gorgeous. It smells divine and foams well without leaving a sticky residue on the skin. We use the baby massage oil on my daughter every night as the lavender smell helps to soothe her and it has become a very useful part of our bedtime routine together. It's lovely being able to use a product where I 100% trust the ingredients and manufacturing process. Everything I've tried from this range has smelt wonderful and worked brilliantly.
It is good to find an oil based hand moisturising product that doesn't irritate my lab and gardening abused hands.
The massage oil was amazing, the perfect lightness of oil to moisturise the skin and the aroma was delightful. I'd recommend this, it made me feel both pampered and tranquil.
I am so enjoying using the beautiful skincare products, and my hubby too, particularly the after shave balm and shower gel. I never want them to run out! The balm is very soothing as I can easily get razor burn... so top marks! The shower gel smells amazing; the whole flat smells divine after we have used these products. Thank you so much.. I feel truly pampered.
