Like many others, I love lovely things, but also have an increasing awareness of the need to consume less – or in a way that is less damaging to the world around us. So it’s always heartening to find a company that’s taking great strides to help rather than harm nature. Haeckels (Made of Margate) is a natural fragrance and skincare brand whose highly covetable products are formulated in a cliff top lab using local botanicals including hand harvested seaweed. Based on the tradition of Thalassotherapy, (where marine minerals are used to replenish and revitalise the body) founder and coastal enthusiast, Dom Bridges has created a range of products that contain high levels of natural anti-inflammatory and collagen boosting properties. The potions and lotions are not only good for the skin and the surrounding sea life, they look, smell and feel great too.
