The Green Grocery is very proud of its cottage industry credentials. Based in the market town of Bishop Auckland, County Durham, each batch produced is small, reducing waste energy and waste materials. Each product is handmade, hand poured, hand stirred and personally (not mechanically) checked and loved.
We love organic and ensure that each of our suppliers is registered organic therefore ensuring all our ingredients are pesticide, G.M. and antibiotic free.
Some of the product photos show labels with Organic Farmers & Growers certified logos. Due to costs we are no longer a certified 'Organic' company, however we still follow their principles and our labels show which ingredients are Organic, many of our products are 100% Organic, and all our products are fully traceable back to the supplier of the ingredients.
We do not test on animals and have never tested on animals.
We only use raw ingredient suppliers that have a strict no testing on animals policy.
Each recipe is unique and were developed after many hours invested in the research of maintaining high quality ingredients, with good scientific and historical research. The research and development continues.
The blending of ingredients uses traditional preparation techniques allowing the oils to infuse with the herbs and essential oils that have been added. This provides a very pure and high quality base to the product.
We Value Water.
We at The Green Grocery follow the view that water is to be protected. What water the planet has today, it had thousands of years ago, and an ever growing world population is increasing demand. Beauty products should not increase demand. We do not use water in our products. And we use as little water as possible during production.
No chemicals allowed.
The true quality of our products is in their foundations. With a no chemicals added policy you can apply the The Green Grocery products in the knowledge that no unknown chemicals are being absorbed into your body. Since the Second World War chemical ingredients have been added to beauty products to increase productivity and reduce costs. The research conducted on many of these manmade chemicals has been limited.
Our products follow hundreds of years of research into the application of oils, essential oils and herbal infusions to the body.
The skin is the biggest organ of your body, so love your body and love organic!
