Our guiding principle is that all Forest Secrets products are made without compromise; in manufacture and in the raw materials used quality is the watch word. Each of our products is to be packed full of carefully selected active ingredients; all of them natural, sometimes rare and often very expensive, unlike other conventional products which have just a few, or often only one, active ingredient. The products are potent as well as pure they are extremely concentrated, so that only a few drops of each are needed. This makes them good value, and giving value for money is also a core principle for us. A full size 15ml bottle in daily use may last you for up to three months.
Being aware and responsible to the environment is another key value for us at Forest Secrets. All of the ingredients and the packaging we use must be sustainable. As a company, we believe that we need to tread gently in our walk upon this planet; being kind to the plants and the environment, and to the animals and humans that share our walk on this beautiful earth. For example we do not use Palm Oil in any of our products, as its harvesting and processing has been linked to global deforestation.
Forest Secrets strives to be kind; kind to Human Beings, to the growers and merchants who supply our raw materials - we insist on fairly traded goods and kind to people who use our product.
The greatest kindness is for us to supply a product that does what is says, it walks its talk! This is the main aim for us, Forest Secrets works! We know through testing and the experience and testimony of our customers that Forest Secrets works! What we say to new customers is "don't take our word for it, try it and see for yourself!" This is why we produce a small "Try Me" set of iRejuvenate and iBright for new customers to find out.
We also see our customers as respected partners in our work; we are always keen to hear from you and recive comments or criticsms, sugestions or questions, even requests for new products or exasperated expresssions of currently un-met needs! You can always ring us on 01749 372123 or email us at info 'at' forestsecretsskincare 'dot' com; and for those of you who use social media, we regulalry tweet - @drbarbaraolioso - and blog - forestsecretsskinnews.com!
In the near future we will introduce a cleanser and toner and an antiaging body lotion, and we are always looking to develop and refine our range, so your comments are always welcome.

WHO WE ARE
I am Dr Barbara Olioso, and I am the founder of Forest Secrets Skincare. I am a professional chemist and I have worked only with natural and organic cosmetics since 1999.
My Great Grandmother lived on the mountains and used local herbs to treat all sorts of ailments. My Great Grandmother gave me a life-long fascination with the power of natural chemicals. I went on to pursue this study at university and became a Doctor of Chemistry. I then went to on work in the Cosmetics Industry where my commitment was to formulate products without synthetic chemicals.
Over time I became more and more frustrated at the compromises that are made in the conventional cosmetics industry; where many products that claim to be natural actually contain many synthetic chemicals, and where most of a budget for a cosmetic product goes on marketing and packaging, leaving very little for the actual contents, which often contain very little active ingredients and are generally cheaply made. From this sense of dissatisfaction, I decided to create my own range of natural cosmetic products that must be made without compromise; so in 2007 I set up Forest Secrets.
