Lockdown, Heidrun and our first dedicated range

The last month and a half has been hard on everyone, its difficult times… uncertain times… with no time scale.

As a small business we were extremely concerned when the lockdown came into force, we were still in our first year.. looking forward to getting a tourist season boost, building a growing regular local and uk customer base which we feared may crumble if people couldnt get to our shop…! HOWEVER… thank goodness for the internet!

As much as I personally like to moan and complain about the internet, the time and money invested early on with Heidrun in building a website and reguarly keeping our social media updated has allowed us to offer a service to our customers who in lockdown circumstances cant reach us. We are so grateful that people are choosing to shop with us through these means.

Our products are also proving to be greatly beneficial in aiding the skin repair after the damage caused by chemical filled antibacterial soaps and sanitizers that are being used, we really appreciate hearing the kind words and comments about our products and we are glad to be able to provide some relief.

So with the belief shown in us, we decided that we should use this time to grow our company, grow our products..introduce new fragrances and colours, play about..experiment with new ideas and invest! Give you guys a wider variety of greatly beneficial products that are still maintaining our companies ethical approach but also greating new fun and exciting experiences.

The Bath time products so far and the Deals packages offered have proven to be greatly popular, infact sometimes its difficult to keep up with the demand for bath bombs but aslong as you are still ordering we will just add an hour in the workshop!

‘Gilded Lust’ ‘Rose Passion’

Two ranges shortly to be introduced at Heidrun… Consisting initially of Luxury Candles, Luxury Bath bombs and something for the face (thats all im saying on that one)… notching some of our products up a gear with the addition of further fantastic ingriedients and fragrances.

What is Palm Oil? Why would you not use it in your soap?

One of the most common questions we are asked by our customers is “What is Palm Oil?” shortly followed by “Why don’t you use Palm Oil, Why is Palm Oil bad?”

What Is Palm Oil?

Palm Oil is a vegetable Oil, It comes from the fruit of Oil Palm Trees. It can be found in the majority of packaged food we find in the supermarket as well as soaps and cosmetics to name a few.

Palm Trees are native to Africa but were introduced to South East Asia Over 100 years ago. Now Indonesia and Malaysia produce 85% of the worlds supply with 42 other countries making up the other 15%.

Why don’t you use Palm Oil, Why is Palm Oil bad?

Palm Oil itself isn’t bad or harmful, However methods and aspects of the production are. Huge deforestation of some of the planets most biodiverse Forests allow for the planting of Oil Palm Trees. The destruction of the forests and the changing of the soil type is pushing millions of tonnes of Green house gases into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. Not only this but the deforestation is destroying the habitats of already endangered species such as the Orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino.

With this into consideration we feel the need to promote this issue and make people aware of the destruction associated with Industrial Palm Oil Production. Our products represent quality that can be obtained without using Palm Oil. We are 100% Palm Oil Free.
