A story of Orang-utans

MEET PUREALBA

It all started with a quest to find palm-free cosmetics. Two years ago this was more difficult than you might believe. Not wanting to be beaten I decided to enroll on a soap makers course and go out on my own.

Then followed a year of education, experimenting with style, flavours, and oils finally to come up with my first 6 recipes.

I launched in April 2019 with a small studio/shop at Drumlanrig castle, Dumfries and Galloway; and never looked back.

It remains a top priority for me to remain palm-free and use the best organic ingredients I can source. All my packaging is "no-waste" and compostable.
 

I now have 12 soaps, 6 body butters, and 6 shampoos. This is a long process as all my recipes have to be approved by a chemist before going on public sale.
