NYR Organic: Neal’s Yard Remedies Top Sellers

Several years ago, on a trip to London to visit family and friends, a family member casually mentioned Neal’s Yard Remedies in Covent Garden as a go-to place for terrific, natural, pure beauty and wellness products. I’ve always been interested in skincare and wellness products and, since my early teen years when I was introduced to Estee Lauder’s Clinique, I have tried my share of top beauty products. Immediately, my antennae went up. “When can we go?” I asked, calculating where in my tight schedule I could fit in a visit to the store. “Maybe next time you visit us in London. That should bring you back!” She said, chuckling.

I think ethical business — making something work in a way that benefits everybody — is fairly crucial in this world and having your own business that you’re in control of and your own motivation, but being part of a joint venture, something bigger that you’re proud to be a part of, which in turn is part of something even bigger, is really exciting.

Welcome to Neal’s Yard Remedies (NYR Organic)

Fast forward years later, a good friend and neighbor, Esme, reached out to me about a fantastic, award-winning, organic beauty line – NYR Organic, relatively new to the USA, and invited me to try some products and sign up as an Independent NYR Organic Consultant. She gave me small samples of the extremely popular, award-winning Wild Rose Beauty Balm, and the equally popularFrankincense Hydrating Cream. I could feel my skin responding to the gentle exfoliant of the deeply nourishing balm, and the hydrating cream gave my skin a lift and a softness that is typical of a day spa visit. I loved it. It took me a while though, to cotton on that this was the same Neal’s Yard Remedies company that I missed an opportunity to visit years back… Serendipity anyone?

I am an environmentalist on the basis of the precautionary principle – if you are not sure about something, it is better to err on the side of caution. This theory can be applied to the formulations of our skincare line or even the use of chemicals on our organic farm. Peter Kindersley

Behind the Scenes of Frankincense Intense

After trying the creams, it made perfect sense to order more products for myself and my family. I eagerly signed on, paid my $99+ and received my box of $500 worth of beauty products. I was stoked because I knew, from looking at my friend with glowing, soft and smooth skin, that this was something I had to try. Once I started reading about the pure, organic ingredients listed and the effort NYR Organic makes to curate the finest organic herbs and work with farmers who benefit from the relationship, I was sold. Neal’s Yard Remedies (NYR Organic) not only sells a carefully curated line of award-winning, natural, organic, health and beauty products, but they are also dedicated to using safe, natural, and ethical approaches to reducing our ecological footprint. They are certified carbon neutral and their products work.


We say: “If in doubt leave it out.” One of my biggest worries is global warming – the risk of standing back and doing nothing is so enormous that I believe we should all try to do our bit. Peter Kindersley

Some Background: Romy Fraser opened Neal’s Yard Remedies in 1981 in Covent Garden London, and ran it as a natural herbs apothecary shop. You could visit to buy herbal extracts and tinctures, handmade soaps, creams and such. As the shop gained popularity, it expanded its product line and opened a store in Japan. They were first in the UK to have their beauty care products certified organic and subsequently won many beauty awards and organic line certifications. By 2006, Romy was ready to sell and the Kindersley family, long standing supporters of maintaining an organic lifestyle, bought the company. Today, the company is a “leading independent British retailer of organic natural health and beauty products,” and has over 40 shops in the UK and is sold in many countries around the world; Canada, Japan, UAE, USA, Oman, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Greece, Norway, Belgium, Italy, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, and South Korea.

But to lead a healthier life, to be more involved in your own life, you need the fundamentals of how to be healthy. We’ve not been brought up to ask if we really want to use resources in this way. We don’t ask the right questions because we don’t know the story. Romy Fraser

Interview with Peter Kindersley

I love products that are beneficial to our overall health and wellness and that are made with sustainability and protecting the environment in mind. I love NYR Organic beauty products because they are made with the finest ingredients and they work. How does NYR Organic maintain purity and quality control in their products? They work closely with their organic supply end; rural farmers who are selected for the quality of their products. NYR Organic also conducts innovative research to ensure that only top quality, plant-based ingredients that meet rigorous Fair Trade standards are bought and used.

Homeopathy is something that looks at the whole person and I found the idea of treating the whole person—taking into account physical symptoms and emotional states to build up a constitutional picture—very exciting. And I saw homeopathy work. Romy Fraser

As summer slowly winds down into fall, and the cooler, drying weather begins to seep into our skin, this is a terrific time for you to try any of our products; buy something today for your friends and family, and/or consider becoming a NYR Consultant. You can choose to just order some fabulous skincare products for yourself or family and friends! Go for it! I’d be happy to answer any questions and suggest an item or two. You won’t be disappointed.

    I am getting into more organic products for beauty as I wonder why we are adding more chemicals to our bodies. Thanks for sharing this product.

  6. 06/08/2014 7:24 pm

    That starter kit looks incredible! I am always advocating Organic Products. I wish I had the time to do something like this!

  7. 06/08/2014 7:24 pm

    This looks like it would be a great opportunity. I love how big the kit is!

    I’ve never used this product before, though I’d like to give it a try since it’s known for being organic.

  12. 07/08/2014 9:27 am

    Looks like great products. I love safe cosmetics, too many have so many chemicals, it is like, “Is this really helping, or hurting?”

  13. 07/08/2014 11:16 am

    Sounds like a great place to find everything you need! I will have to check it out!

  14. 07/08/2014 12:13 pm

    I love skincare products myself and I love it when you can go to the high end stores and get samples of the product. Sometimes you just do not know if you really like it until you have tried it more than 1 time.

    I’m a fan or organic skin care products. Most of the products I review on my blog are organic.

    I think the use of safer cosmetics is important. Most people use them often some some toxins can be harmful in the long run.

    “If you have had an idea and everyone says it’s mad, that’s probably the kind of idea to pursue…” I agree with this , almost all the good things we have today was once an idea being ridiculed like the airplane, light bulb and many more

  32. 12/08/2014 11:13 pm

    My husband is all about saving the environment (he’s in environmental consulting) and we always want to do our part. That’s why when it comes to clothing, we’d rather recycle and buy second hand than support the big box stores with mass manufactured clothes. I also appreciate products that include in their processes and ingredients anything that is organic or natural made instead of synthetic.

    Congrat and good luck to you on this new consulting business with NYR!

  33. 15/01/2015 5:27 pm

    I haven’t heard of them before, but I’m really enjoying their packaging.. 🙂

  34. 15/01/2015 6:31 pm

    That looks like a great product. I will have to be checking it out.

  35. 16/01/2015 9:02 am

    Maybe it was just your time to partner up with them now, and not earlier when you could have. 🙂 Organic products really are so huge right now (and hurrah for it).

  36. 16/01/2015 10:35 am

    Thank goodness for samples! There have been a few times when I’ve found new favorite products by trying a free sample. These sound like fantastic products I’d love to try.

  37. 16/01/2015 12:41 pm

    I am all for homopathy and hollistic health. I’m big on products that are free from the crap we just don’t need. Looks like this company has an extensive product listing. I am going to have to check them out.

  38. 17/01/2015 3:05 pm

    I’ll have to look into this more, because I use nothing but organic skin care products. I love that one of the products has Frankincense as a key ingredient, which is really beneficial for the skin, especially if one has acne prone skin like I do.

  39. 20/01/2015 4:29 pm

    NYR Organics seems like a nice product to pamper your skin!

  40. 20/01/2015 10:36 pm

    I am a big fan of good for you products. These sound great!
