Milla Maddern Natural Skincare

Jane Maddern set up her soap making company in 1997 (she had previously made soaps as a hobby).  She recently launched a new company with her stepdaughter Camilla called Milla Maddern.

Products are made by hand in farm buildings in the Mendip hills in Somerset using ethically sourced ingredients.  No artificial colours or fragrances are used, no parabens, SLS and no animal testing.  Ingredients used are manuka honey, goat's milk, essential oils, aloe vera, plant extracts and butters.

There are four collections - Harmony, Tranquility, Vitality and Sensuality.  Products available in each range are Bodycream, Bodywash, Handcream, Hand made soap and Liquid Hand Wash.

I was sent Tranquility Body Wash*, Sensuality Liquid Soap*, Harmony Hand Cream* and Hand made soap* and Vitality Body Cream*.  They all smell amazing and the combination of essential oils each contain work well together.  The products are packaged in recyclable bottles and the labels are really pretty (they look good sitting at the sink and beside the bath).

Tranquility Body Wash 100ml 
Scented with essential oils of lavender, geranium and mandarin.  A soothing blend and great to de-stress.  This wash makes a good lather and I just loved the scent.  Left skin feeling clean, refreshed and lightly fragranced.  

Vitality Body Cream 100ml
Scented with juniper, bergamot and jasmine.  I just adore this fruity floral scent. This delicious cream featured in my October Favourites recently.  It's a lovely rich cream and absorbs easily into the skin.  A product I always want to have.

Sensuality Liquid Hand Wash 100ml
Scented with jasmine, rosewood, vetivert and geranium which is a heady mix!  Gives a good lather and is non-drying on the hands.  Leaves hands smelling lovely.

Harmony Hand Cream 250ml
Scented with sandalwood, frankincense and neroli.  A rich cream which is easily absorbed into the hands, it is non greasy and leaves the hands super moisturised.  Love the rich woody scent.

Harmony Handmade soap 90g
Containing goat's milk, organic shea butter and jojoba oil along with essential oils of sandalwood, frankincense and neroli. It's wrapped in material which is an unusual but nice touch.  Would make a great gift.
