Behind the brand
They met 21 years ago at school in Witney, Oxfordshire and became best friends.
Now business partners, Emily and Hollie run their 100% natural skincare and candle brand Bampton House. Bringing the spa experience home.
As a beautician, Hollie was fed up of having her hands in chemicals all day. Her hands were sore and red and she realised there must be a better way. So Bampton House was born.
Emily puts her career in marketing and customer service to good use and has also found there is great joy in sticking labels absolutely straight!
The products are 100% natural and entirely free from chemicals, parabens and sulphates. The scents are unique and sophisticated blends of essential oils and are ideal for both body and mind.
A note from Hollie
Like all good ideas, Bampton House began from need and a passion. After 10 years working as a Beautician, I became frustrated with the lack of natural options to use on clients in the salon and to use myself at home. Everything at my finger-tips was filled with parabens, synthetics and sulphates and I suffered badly with eczema as a consequence. My hands are my tools. My skin is a reflection of my knowledge and care. It seemed an unacceptable consequence of a career I’ve always loved so much. So I started experimenting; initially for myself, then for clients, and so Bampton House was born.
Bampton House ethos
All of the Bampton House products are vegan, paraben and chemical (SLS) free and use 100% natural ingredients - even the wicks in the candles are cotton.
We promote clean and green living. We are environmentally conscious and try to use previously recycled packaging, or where that isn’t possible, we ensure it has the lowest possible environmental impact.
The unique blends of essential oils in all of the products give an incredible depth to the scents and feel utterly luxurious to use. Essential oils not only smell lovely, but they have a naturally restorative nature. Our products are popular with yoga studios, hypno-birthing doulas, those that practice mindfulness, as well as anyone that appreciates natural living.
We never test on animals (I don’t think willing family members count).
All of our products are carefully handcrafted in our workshop in Bampton, Oxfordshire and are made from the finest ethically sourced ingredients.
No Synthetic Colours
