Small Businesses that Green our World – B Organic Skincare

Next in our series, Small Businesses that Green our World, it is our pleasure to introduce you to Aycin Wateridge, founder and owner of B Organic Skincare.

eco-friendly products

Driven by the desire to create an organic product to help with her own daughter’s eczema, Aycin created B Organics Skincare. Now with over 40 organic skincare in their range, high profile media coverage and a business award to boot, Aycin’s business is going from strength to strength.

I asked Aycin to tell us a little more about herself and her story:

I am Aycin, founder of multiple award winning B Organic Skincare. I am originally from Turkey, living in the New Forest, Hampshire with my husband Justin and our daughter Paris.

Tell more about your products and what they do.eco-friendly products

B Organic Skincare was founded after creating organic skincare and bath products without the harsh, nasty chemicals that were also suitable for Eczema and Sensitive Skin. Paris was born with severe eczema and I couldn’t find any suitable products for her on the market. I started researching what I should be doing and I teamed up with professionals who helped me to make sure all my products were safe to use.

How did you come up with the idea?

Once Paris started using my products, her skin started improving dramatically, then all my husband’s family started using my products as they all suffer with Eczema. They couldn’t believe the result and they kept asking for more and I had other people asking for my products, this is how B Organic Skincare came together.

What has been your proudest moment to date?

The proudest moment to date is being awarded Womenpreneur of the Year 2011 in June. It meant a lot to me, all the hard work finally paid off. I also felt so proud by being selected for Small Business Sunday by Theo Paphitis from Dragon’s Den.

What has been your biggest success to date?

B Organic Skincare has been set up with limited amount of money. In a short period of time my skincare has been awarded several awards as well as myself. I’ve been featured in the national press several times and we’ve been approached by a very niche Organic Store chain in Turkey and we’re in several retailers in the UK.

What are your plans for 2012?

I am planning on expanding the business. I am in talks with several big chain retailers. I’d love to see my products on their shelves. I also would like to expand the brand to other countries.

Where can people buy/ find out more about your product?

They can buy our award winning products directly from us www.b-organic.co.uk and take advantage of the promotions we offer to our customers. We’re also in other online retailers as well as high street independent stores.

Am I the only one who gets confused by tweets, and retweets etc? I think I’ve just retweeted as per instructions for the 4th entry. Hope so anyway.

Hi Sylvia – you tweeted – which is great, thanks. A retweet is when you ‘repeat’ something (send it round again) that has already been tweeted. :)

I would love to give the Organic Men’s Hydrating Face Cream to my son to try. He has quite dry skin and uses a moisturiser already but I think this would be richer.

I would choose Organic sweet orange lip balm. I regularly use organic, paraben-free, sls, free, perfume free shampoo ,conditioner and body wash and my scalp and skin have calmed down. But I must admit that I’ve been using petroleum jelly as a lip balm because my lips are very dry. I’d love to try the sweet orange. (last week I bought some supermarket lip balm and had a nasty reaction – silly me)

I would love to try the Organic Vegan Hand & Body Lotion with Lavender and Chamomile. I suffer with a patch of eczema on my right hand which makes it difficult to avoid as I am right handed! Lots of things make it flare up and it’s nice to find fancy products that make me feel pampered without having to worry about damaging my poor sensitive skin.

Organic Vegan Ladies Body Wash with Lavender & Ylang-Ylang, suitable for sensitive skin and eczema 150ml. This sounds delicious.
I have been using organic face, hair and body products for over 10 years now and wouldn’t dream of using chemicals ever again! Lavender will always be my favourite scent as I find the aroma very comforting and it’s a great stress-buster too.

I’d love to try “Organic Vegan Ladies Body Wash with Lavender & Ylang-Ylang, suitable for sensitive skin and eczema 150ml”. I am recovering from 6 weeks of severe allergic reaction to a washing up liquid which has affected my whole body and my skin needs this so much. I haven’t been able to use anything other than prescribed ointments and I’m quite scared about using products again but this sounds perfect!

I would love to try anything from this great range, but the Organic Vegan Hydrating Eye Cream or the Organic Vegan Hydrating Face Cream would be great, as my skin has already taken a beating in its 30 years, and I better start using something good or I’ll look 70 when I’m 40!
