Down Broad Street, Just Past the St Magnus Cathedral…a little past the Royal Bank of Scotland you will find Victoria Street. Narrow, but wide enough for a car or passing van. This characteristic, vibrant and historical little street houses some fantastic little shops and cafes. At number 51 Between Bruces Stores and Sutherlands Pharmacy you can find Heidrun Cosmetics .. our new shop and now our main base in Orkney.
Although we will still be operating our Stromness shop from April Over the Summer period, 51 Victoria Street will be open all year round. It also has enough space to allow us to make our products on site, meaning that customers can also view the preparation of products in the shop.
We have tried to create something quite unique with the interior decor. Rustic Whiskey Barrels, Hessian, Rope, Blackboards are the make up for our Colourful Bath Bomb, Sugar Scrub and Salt Bar Display.

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.
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.
