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.

Hand & Body Butter, why is ours different??

A finely tuned recipe containing rich & beneficial Ingriedients makes this one of our best products!

There are a huge range of Body Butters and Hand creams available on the market in every price range, but how do we know which one we should choose, which one will work for us …And not only that how much should we be paying for it?

HEIDRUNS HAND & BODY BUTTER

MUlTIPLE SKINCARE PRODUCT IN ONE: When we created the recipe for Heidruns Hand & Body Butter… we wanted to do just that.. make a Hand AND Body Butter, we wanted to make one product that done the work of many! An all in one product that could be used all over the body but also worked specifically to moisturise, soften and feed your skin. Why lump around more than one product in your handbag when you can have just one tin of quality saving you money and space …and that brings us onto to the next topic….

QUALITY: The fine selection and the amount of different benefiting Oils and Butters that go into our Hand & Body Butter ensures that you receive a high quality product that goes over and above the recommended retail price of £10, Here are just a few examples of what you can find in our magic tins:

GOATS MILK: Goat milk contains many vitamins, but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. There have been several medical studies showing that creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief.

SHEA BUTTER: High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.

COCOA BUTTER: Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture

KOKUM BUTTER: Has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that make it ideal for damaged skin. Kokum Butter is especially a great alternative for those with sensitive skin. Its ability to rejuvenate damaged skin cells is a killer way to combat wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots

MANGO SEED BUTTER: Since mango butter is a natural source of vitamin A, it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increasing skin’s overall youthful look.

ILLIPE BUTTER: Illipe butter is highly moisturising and has emollient properties which makes it ideal for dry skin. Illipe butter is nourishing and promotes elasticity and vitality for the skin

SWEET ALMOND OIL: Thanks to the Vitamin E, sweet almond oil keeps your skin cells healthy, protects your skin from UV radiation damage, and helps your skin look smooth, soft, and free of fine lines. The fatty acids help your skin retain moisture and can heal chapped and irritated skin.

And MORE……

PALM OIL FREE: All of our products are free from Palm oil, Parabens, SLS and any other nasties.

IT LASTS A WHILE: a little really does go a long way.

A VARIETY OF FRAGRANCES: Our Hand & Body Butter comes in un fragranced this has been recommended by our customers for use on the face. But there are fragrances to choose from including Raspberry Sloe Gin, Rapberry & Pomegranate, Clementine & Prosecco, Strawberry Shortcake and Rose,Lavender & Patchouli.

All in all this is a fantastic product, great value for money that really does benefit and care for your skin!
