The Story

The founder of ‘Love to b’ is Julie who’s youngest daughter Bea was diagnosed as lactose intolerant as a baby and suffered with distressing eczema throughout her childhood. When she was 12, her eczema flared up again and having tried everything, from high end products to prescribed creams there was little to no improvement. Julie spent hours reading about skin conditions and natural remedies and began researching the ingredients listed in high street toiletries and skincare. With a mother’s passion, she was determined to create something that would be kind to sensitive skin and make a difference for Bea.

At the beginning of 2010, Julie took the plunge and started to make her own natural skin cream and soaps containing plant based moisturising oils such as cocoa and shea butters, apricot kernel, jojoba and sweet almond oils. She blended essential oils such as lavender, mint, rosemary and eucalyptus that have antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Within a few weeks of using her Mum’s special cream and soaps, the improvement in the condition of Bea’s skin was incredible.
