About Boo

Boo Cottage Botanicals is a small, independent business specialising in making handcrafted, natural skincare products.

Who are we?

Boo Cottage Botanicals was founded in 2014 at the foot of the Quantock Hills in rural Somerset and is run by Nichola and Ben.

The company was born, initially, out of curiosity. Nichola, a self-confessed serial crafter, was intrigued as to how soap was made using the traditional cold pressed method. Having learnt how to make soap her knowledge of the industry increased drastically and she became aware of the synthetic ingredients used in many mass produced products and, as a result, she decided she wanted to create a skincare range that was completely natural, free from synthetic preservatives, foaming agents and artificial colourants and, instead, produce products that are packed full of plant based goodness.

Having developed a number of soaps the range has expanded, and continues to expand, to include; lipbalms, luxury bath truffles, face oils and solid lotion bars. All of which adhere to our core principle of only using natural ingredients with known benefits for the skin.

All of our products are produced in our workshop in West Bagborough and are handcrafted in small quantities to ensure products of the highest quality. Furthermore, the entire range has been certified and is fully compliant with EU legislation giving piece of mind to us and our customers. In addition to this we are members of the Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers which recognises companies and that are compliant with all the relevant legislation and who can confidently call their products skin safe.

All fragrances are hand blended using essential oils which have been naturally extracted from plants.  They are of the finest quality to ensure the fragrance lasts as long as your product does. We only use natural colourings in our soap, lip balm and bath truffles such as clays, herbs and spices for the most natural skincare products that you will love using.

We are passionate about our business, our natural products and our customer service.  We love talking to people about our products, helping you to find products right for you, whether it's for everyday use, an indulgent treat or the perfect gift for someone special.

Environmental Impact

We are committed to minimising our environmental impact and use recycled card, glass and tins to form the basis of our packaging.

We attempt to source ingredients as locally as possible and are moving to using more British ingredients in our range, including ingredients such as Sea Buckthorn Oil, Borage Oil and Chamomile.  

We’re aspiring to be totally plastic free, something that we’re very close to achieving and we’re looking at establishing a packaging returns scheme.
