KINN Living / Natural and organic products for you and your home / Review

THE STORY BEHIND KINN LIVING

Mother and daughter Marie Lavabre and Sophie Lavabre-Barrow, founded KINN in 2017.

The product ideas came into fruition in 1993 when the owner Marie had her own child and wanted more organic products that were safe for her child.

Marie understood the importance of organic products and wanted to create a range of organic body care products that were safe for her newborn baby and turned to her uncle the founder of the Aromatherapy Association of America for help

The company was to be named Little Wishes but as time went by and Marie struggled to find a factory who would make the products without SLS/SLES and parabens etc, she found herself moving more and more into a career in interior design and property development. 

Fast forward to 2015 and Marie and her daughter began work on updating the organic body care to meet modern day Soil Association COSMOS standards!

With their skin care production they wondered why plant based cleaning was looked as being less effective? So they found a family run business in the UK who could help them turn their idea of vegan plant based and effective, cleaning products into reality!

“We founded KINN because we think that if we’re looking after what we put on our skin, it also makes sense to look after what we use in our homes. Our ethos is Clean Beauty™ for you, your family and your home. Organic, natural and eco friendly can be on-trend too.” Marie & Sophie

Their packaging is recyclable and they don’t not test on animals – all products are proudly made in Britain using their family aromatherapy recipes. 

Clean Beauty for you, your family and your home.

 

WHAT IS ‘CERTIFIED ORGANIC’ BY THE SOIL ASSOCIATION?

It’s the country’s leading organic certifier offering a huge range of organic and sustainable certification schemes across food, farming, catering, health and beauty, textiles and forestry.

The Soil Association developed the world’s first organic standards in the 1960s and their licensees must meet strict European laws about the production of organic food.

They must also go further in key areas such as animal welfare, protecting human health, and safeguarding the environment.

No system of farming has higher levels of animal welfare than farms working to Soil Association organic standards.

FINAL OPINIONS

I love these products! Anything like this is my favourite! I really enjoyed two two skincare items I tried for it’s pampering feel and the fact it isn’t full of any rubbish or additives. 

The two cleaning products I’ve tried are fantastic and can’t rate them high enough because everything from the scent to its natural ingredients are amazing. They are my new favourite non toxic cleaning products and as I literally always cleaning I’m in Natural Cleaning Heaven! The design and scent of these non toxic cleaning products means my house smells lush!

So many plus point from being pet friendly, not tested on animals, free from synthetic fragrances, plant based, natural oils, stylish design, great ethos and as I have children I feel safe using it around the house without the harsh chemicals.
