Sheffield Skincare

Skin is the largest organ in the human body and the market is riddled with countless products that all claim to be the best but what really is best for our skin? Megan Beardsmore is the founder of Sheffield Skincare and in her opinion 100% natural is the only way to go.

She started her company in 2014 with the mission of providing products that used only the finest natural ingredients. After a successful first year of hand making products at home and selling them via her website and at fairs around Sheffield she has just moved onto the Crookes high street! Sitting opposite the Punch Bowl pub at number 243 is a quaint bluey indigo storefront; inside is simple with a homely Provencal feel and the smell of natural goodness.

Although you wouldn’t have guessed it I know very little about soaps and creams, balms and lotions but Megan’s enthusiasm for what she does is infectious and the finished products, well they look more like chocolate or homemade fudge! Note to self; don’t taste!

Megan’s story actually started in 2001 when she studied Herbalism and Aromatherapy at Sheffield College. After gaining her NVQ 2 qualification she began using fresh herbs and essential oils to make creams, potions and other skincare products as presents for friends and family. Word spread and soon she was spending hours in the kitchen melting, mixing, stirring and testing to create the 100% natural products she prides herself on producing.

With the new shop and a larger space for the trialling and testing of concoctions Megan is excited to continue the expansion of her unique ranges and provide Sheffield with skincare products that are kind and nourishing for our skin.

Not only does her enthusiasm result in many a late night experimenting with new natural products but the shop also stocks a large range of base ingredients to allow you to have a go at creating your own soaps and balms, lotions and potions. What a great idea I here you say but I wouldn’t have a clue where to start! Up steps Megan again with classes starting after Christmas to teach others how to create their own bespoke skincare products.
