Green People products are packed with up to 99% active natural and organic ingredients to protect, nourish, balance and, most importantly, respect your body.
Founder Charlotte Vøhtz’s drive to create truly organic skin care began when her young daughter Alexandra was battling multiple skin allergies and eczema. She searched the high street for natural products that would be gentle on Alexandra’s sensitive skin but found that many so-called natural skin care brands used almost entirely synthetic ingredients. In fact you only need to have less than 1% natural or organic ingredients in the formulation to call it ‘natural’.
The lack of gentle, natural products on the market spurred Charlotte on to create her own organic creams and salves.
After years of product research and development, Green People was founded in 1997. From the very beginning Charlotte’s principles meant that product performance and ethical practice were never sacrificed for profit. A close working relationship was built with product manufacturers in Europe to create the initial product range; a relationship which still exists to this day.
With a promise to never use aggressive ingredients or synthetic chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, alcohol (ethanol) or synthetic fragrances or colourants, and to never test on animals, Green People was born.
In 1999 Charlotte was invited to be on a Soil Association committee to design the first standards for organic beauty. Charlotte, and later Green People’s Cosmetic Scientist Ian Taylor, played a huge role in setting natural and organic cosmetic regulations.
First class customer service with a personal touch and outstanding products has brought Green People close to the hearts of thousands of people. The countless testimonials from grateful customers who are relieved to have finally found skin care that works for them, are proof of the impact of Charlotte’s commitment to effective organic solutions.
During this time, Green People has been presented with over 140 awards from magazines and organisations including Natural Health Magazine, Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible and The Green Parent, along with the midwife-approved TIPS awards for the Organic Babies range.
