All About Mellow Skincare

My name is Carole Holmes and I personally hand make all of the natural Mellow Skincare products that you’ll find on this website.

From hobby to a thriving business

Carole Holmes

Having spent the first 40 years of my career as a registered nurse in the NHS and private sector, it has always been important to me to live as healthily as possible.

This includes using natural products on my skin.

My interest in complementary therapies and natural skincare products reached new heights when I bought a nursing home in West Sussex some years ago and decided to offer complementary therapies such as massage, reflexology and Reiki as part of the home’s care plans.

It was so important to me to use natural products with each of the treatments to protect the residents’ skin from harsh chemicals.

As I began heading down a new path, one that focused on creating natural skincare products using essential oils and other natural ingredients, I found a new sense of purpose and fulfilment.

At first, I made my natural skincare products at home in my kitchen, giving them to friends and family as gifts. When I practised my therapies, I made my own massage oils and reflex balms.

In fact, the clients who came to me for facials and other treatments only experienced the products I had made.

As the buzz around the products grew, I realised that many people share my desire to use natural, chemical-free products on their skin. I decided to turn my hobby into a business.

In 2006, Mellow Skincare was born.

Why choose Mellow Skincare?

I have created Mellow Skincare products for anyone who wants to use natural, chemical-free products on their skin.

You can read more about what makes Mellow Skincare products so special on our ‘Ideal for you’ page.

At the heart of what I do is the belief that you should be able to choose to avoid mass-produced, chemical-based products in favour of natural alternatives.

My emphasis is on helping you find the best products for your individual skincare needs and overall wellbeing.

I do hope you enjoy exploring the products on this website.
