Adorable Gifts & Jewellery Advice
       

Adorable products made in England, Scotland and Wales

At I Adore Your we try to select 'made in the UK' products wherever possible. Over the year the manufacturing base has decline in the UK to an extent where today we see almost all the brands on the high street being produced overseas. When we talk to suppliers we often find that they have great designers working in the UK who are working hard to draw up cutting edge designs for new products but when it comes to production they can't afford to do this in the UK and still hit the price point their consumers are looking for on the UK high street.


There are however a number of designers and suppliers who have either stuck with or who are turning back to sourcing materials and production in the UK. Britain has some of the best engineers and designers in the World. Many of these people have survived through their ability to produce high quality and precision products very quickly and in smaller quantities. Others have survived through building up a following of pashonate consumers looking for quality and value rather than just a low price tag.


We think that this trend will increase over the coming years as workers in the far East start to demand better pay and working conditions. The price of fuel for transportation alone will also start to change the economics of offshore manufacturing. Increasingly consumers dislike the current financially cheap and disposable but ethically and environmentally expensive poor quality products that have become so common from the 1970's through to today.

 


D R Harris Mens Grooming - made in London

It can be easy to forget about the men when it comes to cleansing and moisturising, in fact, I expect many of them make do with 'borrowing' their wife's or girlfriends moisturiser when the winter cold or summer sun takes it's toll. Ensure they are not always reaching for your moisturiser by introducing them to their own easy to use range of products.

I Adore Your looked at many brands of skincare, before deciding upon D R Harris. Their products do not promise to iron out every wrinkle, they simply claim to clean, tone and moisturise, which as we all know is a great place to start. All strong perfumes in the D R Harris range have been omitted so that they are suitable for even the most sensitive skins. Their products are still produced in England by the same traditional methods being handmade and packaged in their St James Street shop, London, established in 1790. In fact, the formula for their Rose and Cucumber Cleanser dates back 125 years. The fantastic glass bottles hark back to a bygone era and are a stylish addition to any bathroom. As the glass bottles can be recycled they also meet the needs of the modern world. D R Harris products are not tested on animals which is an additional peace of mind. As D R Harris products are so mild they can be used by women too and the moisturiser makes for a great makeup base - maybe it's the lady's turn to do the borrowing?

Trevarno Beauty Products - hand made in Cornwall

People are becoming more aware of eating organic food to avoid food which can contain harmful chemicals but they don't always consider that products used on the skin can penetrate the skin and enter our bodies. With this in mind, it was very important to I Adore Your that we could offer a range of beauty products that are organic. Trevarno fitted the bill perfectly, as they were the first company to meet The Organic Farmers and Growers strict standards to obtain formal organic accreditation. This official recognition with Britain's longest established organic certifier guarantees the purity of the Trevarno range and assures customers that products are both ethical and sustainable. This organic certification is the only way to ensure that products are as pure and natural as possible.

Trevarno work hard in sourcing the highest quality, socially just and ecologically responsible suppliers of ingredients for their skin care range. Just a few examples of these practices includes buying locally grown West country herbs and obtaining sustainable Palm Oil from a producer who works closely with the World-wide Fund for Nature.


Due to the concentrated and pure nature of the organic ingredients used in all products, the skin nourishing benefits are magnified and a little goes a long way reducing the environmental impact of excessive packaging and transportation.


Inspired by their beautiful setting in Cornwall, all Trevarno skincare products are packaged in dinky jewel coloured jars such as emerald and the deepest purples and pinks echoing the colours of the peacocks on the Trevarno estate where all the skincare products are handmade.


I Adore Your has chosen to stock a number of their organic skincare and baby products and their natural bath oil and soaps. The Trevarno range would be a stylish addition to any bathroom and the handcream is small enough to slip into a handbag for the lady on the move. The baby care range again is designed for home or for when you are on the move as with this and all Trevarno products, a small amount is needed each time.


Ultimately, what could be better than giving something which looks great, smells and feels fantastic and is organic to boot.


Trevarno has had considerable press coverage over recent years.
