Tropic Skincare

I thought I would talk about a skincare range that I would love to share that is free from harmful toxic chemicals. A few years ago I used to make my own free from harmful chemicals beauty products this was very tricky and cost me lots of time and money. I'm so pleased that there is now more products that are now available to buy that really are free from toxic chemicals.

My friend had been using these products for a few months and recommended them to me. I had been chatting to her about how I had tried to use healthy products and had found it hard work as other companies advertising as chemical free still contained harmful chemicals. So she decided to host a Tropic party and invited me along. I thought these type of house parties were long gone, I remember growing up and having to go to Tupperware parties with my mum which I found very boring so I was reluctant to go. However, I'm very glad I went as it was not boring and the products were all so lovely, we got to take a look and try out the range. I was very impressed with all the products and treated myself to a couple and have been using them for a few weeks and they are simply wonderful.


Here is what is special about Tropic skincare:

The products contain the purest naturally derived ingredients and are free from harmful toxic chemicals.

I love animals and care about their welfare, these products never test on them or cause them distress by using derivatives such as lanolin, beeswax or honey.

What you put on your skin should never be a mystery, therefore Tropic products list all ingredients in plain English, and include a ‘best before’ date on all the skincare products so you know exactly what’s in your product and that you’re applying only the freshest ingredients to your skin.

The products are designed using the richest, most nutritious premium natural ingredients to ensure they are effective on all skin types, even the most sensitive.

Tropic aim to do as many processes in-house as possible, from development to manufacturing and marketing to dispatch and look after every element of the business from their Surrey Beauty Kitchen and warehouse. This ensures quality control and enables them to act fast when it comes to the latest beauty trends and innovations.
