Local skin-care manufacturer Deborah Neill visited Bangor Rotary to share her story recently.
Deborah told Rotarians, “My range of clean, minimal & gentle skincare has been created to be both kind to your delicate skin and to our planet.
“My career as a beautician and aromatherapist was extremely rewarding but many products had become very expensive with long ingredient lists and often contained a high percentage of just water!
“(Look for Aqua as the first named ingredient which means that it is the highest percentage in that product).
“A quick check of the lists on the back of the products I was using each morning showed that I was applying hundreds of different ingredients onto my skin daily!
“Did my skin really need all these ingredients and what was the result of them all being mixed together?
“I began to formulate natural, sustainable and botanically rich skincare – a mindful approach of simply everything the skin needs and nothing that it doesn’t!
“Thus began Deborah Neill Handmade Skincare.”
