Natural inner & outer beauty
Established in 1981, Neal’s Yard Remedies is a modern apothecary, creating award-winning natural and organic health and beauty. From small beginnings in a quiet corner of Covent Garden, we’re now a global leader with a growing presence across five continents – but remain grounded in our belief that outer beauty and inner health should be in perfect balance.
We use the highest possible percentage of organic ingredients as they are kinder to the earth – and kinder to you.
Using ethically sourced herbs, botanicals and essential oils, our experts handcraft potent blends of love, science and nature.
Certified ethical sourcing
The world’s first health and beauty company to be awarded 100/100 for ethics (in an independent audit by the Ethical Company Organization), we trade sustainably and ethically. We believe that our mission to enhance and protect people’s health and wellbeing starts with the very first seed, long before our ingredients arrive at our eco factory. That’s why we build strong, lasting relationships with growers who use organic, sustainable and wild-harvesting practices. We certify products with the following organizations to independently verify our ethical standards, so you can just #LookForTheLogo.
We certify our products with the Soil Association, internationally recognized for their incredibly high standards for organic food and beauty. This guarantees that a product contains the highest levels of certified organic ingredients. Our new products are now certified (by the Soil Association) to the new robust organic standard for health and beauty worldwide COSMOS Organic.
We believe that beauty and household products should be cruelty free, and are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global program, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.
All of our cosmetic, personal care and household products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny program, the internationally recognizable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.

For Life and Fair For Life
We’re proud to be the first British health and beauty brand to be certified both For Life and Fair for Life, which accredit our commitment to being a socially responsible business and upholding fair trade respectively.
FairWild ensures a fair deal all along the supply chain and support for the sustainable use of wild-harvested ingredients. In 2013, we’re happy to say we introduced the world’s first FairWild™ certified organic frankincense.
All of our products are vegetarian and many are also suitable for vegans (see our individual product pages or contact Customer Services for details of our vegan products) and we only use sustainably sourced, organic honey, beeswax and propolis.
Beauty that protects the planet
As an ethical company, we’re mindful of our responsibility to mitigate climate change and think it’s important to lead by example. That’s why, as well as trading ethically and sustainably, we actively reduce or off-set carbon emissions throughout our business.
In 2008 we became the world’s first high street retailer to be certified CarbonNeutral® by Natural Capital Partners, having reduced our net carbon emissions to zero. Through them we purchase annual carbon credits in support of their Makira Forest Protection Project (pictured here) in Madagascar. This helps protect one of the world’s top five biodiversity hotspots by limiting deforestation and working with communities to support low-impact farming practices.
Having installed 700m2 of solar panels at our eco factory in Dorset, we now generate more than 5% of our own electricity, topped up by a 100% UK sourced renewable tariff. We also choose 100% renewable electricity and gas for our stores.
In 2017 we became the first national company to commit to the ‘Refill’ scheme, actively encouraging customers to come in and refill water flasks, to reduce the usage of single-use plastic bottles. Find out more about our progress on sustainability.
We use recyclable packaging, sourced from the UK wherever possible to reduce transport miles. All our gift boxes and product cartons are FSC® (Forestry Stewardship Council) sustainability-sourced, and use World Land Trust™ certified Carbon Balanced packaging. This means that we offset the amount of CO2 used to make our packaging by protecting tropical forest. Since 2012 we’ve helped save over 1,000,000m² of endangered forest, offsetting 250 tons of CO2.

I would love to know about you first and foremost! So here’s a bit about me.
I am a young-at-heart 62 year old. My husband and I have three adult children and five grandchildren ranging from 5 to 17 years of age. These days I keep busy sharing NYR Organic, playing online games with grandchildren, organic gardening, making masks, and experimental cooking. At times, the later turns out delicious and other times not so much.
Most of my teen life, and all of my adult life, I’ve been in love with “beauty” care. Started with 1970’s line of “Young N Free” skin, hair, and body products. Ever since then I’ve been looking for the crème de la crème in beauty products. Started out in drug stores then ventured on to high-end department stores and eventually aestheticians. Always looking for that ONE product that made a difference in my skin. Even tried making my own with organic ingredients. All of these attempts left me with allergic reactions, break outs, and skin irritations and nothing diminished my wrinkles as promised.
Well, I am ecstatic to say I found NYR Organic with AMAZING RESULTS! I was introduced to NYR Organic by a friend. Due to trying so many products I was skeptical. After receiving my first order of the Frankincense Age-Defying Cream, and Frankincense Intense Lift Serum (both lasting about two months), I was hooked on how the fine lines disappeared and the deeper ones were barely visible. I also fell in love with the relaxing fragrance. I am so glad I never gave up in my quest!
As with most of my Clients, my sister complimented my skin so I gave her samples and after 5 days of using the samples she ordered her regime as do all my clients. NYR ORGANICS FOREVER BECAUSE IT WORKS!
