Bloomtown, Cornwall

The UK’s first certified palm oil-free company Bloomtown formulates, blends and pours each of their award-winning body and skincare products in South Cornwall. Certified vegan and cruelty free and containing no nasties whatsoever, their beautiful fragrances are inspired by the meadows, gardens and groves of the great outdoors. We love ‘The Hedgerow’, inspired by late summer in the Cornish countryside, with fresh, summery notes of juicy blackberry and sweet honeysuckle. For something less floral try ‘The Woods’, with its earthy blend of cedar, vetiver and bergamot. For sensitive skin, Bloomtown have also created ‘The Spring’, a 100% allergen-free and unscented range of products.

Star product – Sugar Scrub, from £7

Get your skin summer ready with Bloomtown’s sumptuous sugar scrub, crafted with fine British sugar and the perfect balance of plant oils and botanical ingredients to effectively cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise skin, leaving it wonderfully soft.

Infused with sweet orange, rose geranium, earthy ylang-ylang, sweet magnolia champaca and 100 Acres’ signature (top secret) base, this body wash will transform your everyday shower into an indulgent countryside escape.
