Hi, I’m Amanda, the founder of Natural Zest Skincare. I qualified as a Registered Nurse in the UK in 1999. Having a keen interest in health, but drawn to learn more about alternative therapies and what they had to offer, I embarked upon a Diploma in Aromatherapy in 2002, which opened the world of nature in respect of Essential Oils and Carrier Oils.
I started using essential oils for my own benefit – adding them to moisture creams which I bought. I started to become more inquisitive about the ingredients that were in the moisture creams I was using, and after researching a little, I decided I wanted to make my own skincare products – that way I would know exactly what ingredients I was using and where they originated from.
With a love of nature and all it has to offer, I began a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. In 2017 I gained my diploma, including a distinction in formulation skills. From there the Natural Zest Skincare brand was created!
With ongoing study for a Certificate of Herbal Medicine, I am looking forward to formulating more products derived from nature into the skincare range!
Amanda, the founder of Natural Zest Skincare
