The very nature of Cumbria, that of a rural county with beautiful natural landscapes and a place to restore wellbeing, has inspired so many makers and produces who draw on the natural influences of our environment to create products that reflect their unique surroundings. There are so many industries that have been borne of the stunning Lake District and health and beauty products is one of the most thriving.
In Cumbria you’ll find a wide variety of health and beauty brands who are changing the way we think about the products we use on our skin. This is evident in the plethora of bath products made in Cumbria that use natural ingredients, sustainable packaging and take advantage of the natural resources on offer here. A great example of this is the growing industry of milk soap. Milk soap uses the naturally occurring fats in milk to make wonderfully moisturising soaps that are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Goat milk soap in particular has grown in popularity as a bath product that soothes irritated skin, helps with eczema and is super moisturising.
We also have brands that are using new and innovative ways to package bath products, including packaging made out of sugar cane, refillable bottles, plastic free containers and using more sustainable methods for distributing products.
From soaps and shampoo bars to bath oils and bath bombes, Cumbrian health and beauty producers are striving for more responsible ways to produce luxurious bath products that sooth skin and avoid adding more strain on the environment. This is probably due to the very nature of the county of Cumbria, home of the great outdoors, the incredible Lake District and a place to promote health and wellbeing.
