Our story – by soothe-me handmade artisan skincare, Winner of the Green Parent Natural Beauty Awards 2013 for best lip balm! Soothe-me is a small UK business set up by Suzie Hacker.
Having always had very sensitive skin and eczema Suzie strived for years to find skincare that actually helped her skin. So after qualifying in aromatherapy and natural skincare ingredients Suzie started to blend her own natural skin remedies. Discovering that her own pure remedies worked so much better than products on the market containing cheap, man-made ingredients. Orders from friends and family grew and grew, Suzie was inspired to create the ‘soothe-me’ range. When during her pregnancy she wanted to use only natural products so the ‘Bump and Boobs’ pregnancy oil was created and after her son was born she added the special baby products to the range.

Suzie, certified Aromatherapist says: “Our products are handmade in small batches using organic oils, floral waters and essences from plants & herbs. This way I know they’re always as fresh and natural as possible – and most importantly, good for you (because it is thought that 60% of what you put on your skin may enter your blood stream) and your skin.
We select our base oils because they are proven to be naturally rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that are highly beneficial to the skin. We try to ‘keep it local’ and we source many of our ingredients from small and family run UK herb farms and oil producers. Our products and their ingredients never tested on animals. Our packaging can be recycled and/or is biodegradable wherever possible.
Now that I have a young son I am lucky to be able to use my own range on him. I also created a beautiful natural baby oil, for mums to use during my baby massage classes. Its had such great results for babies with dry skin and mild eczema that I re-named it ‘Super Baby Oil’ and today its one of our best sellers and has one a gold star Natural Green Beauty Awards 2104 by Green Parent Magazine!”
