Laidbare for Women and Laidback for Men


We're on quite a roll here with news about natural beauty products, last week we told you about the UK brand Nude Skincare and the US brand Suki, now we've hopped back over the pond again to look at Laidbare, another UK brand. Sarah Silvester only started creating her own line of natural beauty products at the beginning of 2006, but has already developed a wide range of products using fresh ingredients, organic extracts and vitamins. We think her brand is notable for creating products for men as well as women. We haven't seen many natural skincare products for men and there were audible outcries in the comments section of the How To Green Women's Personal Care guide about the sexism of the post, so here you go boys. The Laidback range includes green tea face + body wash, aloe vera shaving cream, red clover face + body moisturiser and walnut shell face + body scrub, all are fragranced with the essential oils of lemon and black pepper. Both the Laidbare and Laidback ranges are free from parabens, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, sulfates and synthetic chemicals. They are only currently available in the UK, though Sarah Silvester says they hoping to enter into the Canadian and US markets in the near future. You can buy both ranges through Sarah's distribution company Touch My face, which is also the UK distributor for Suki. Laidbare and Laidback are also available to buy at the Conran Shop, Whole Foods and online at The Natural Store. :: Touch My Face
