A local mum and natural health consultant has launched her award-winning soothing cream overseas.

Hannah Pearson, from Dartington, created her Gentle Green Soothing Cream in her garden shed and has had an incredible response since its launch in 2012.

The cream is perfect for sensitive and/or eczema-prone skin. It won Gold in the Problem Skin category in the 2013 FreeFrom Skincare Awards and scooped the runner-up prize in the Best FreeFrom Skincare Product category.

Hannah’s cream is not just a hit in the industry, with customers from all over the UK calling it their product of choise.

“This has changed my life by being the first product to eliminate eczema,” says one happy customer. “It’s magic in a jar.”

The idea came to Hannah when experimenting with herbs and other natural remedies.

“I have a particular interest in natural skincare after suffering severely with eczema as a child,” Hannah explains.

“Initially I smeared it on anyone who visited and sent it out to friends around the world who gave feedback that it was having remarkable results. Friends and neighbours alike were soon coming back for more and word spread.”

The cream has now been awarded Organic status by the Soil Association - something extremely important to Hannah.

“It is absolutely vital if we are to expect the land to provide us with safe and nutritious food and medicines that we commit to caring for its integrity, keeping soil and plants chemical-free,” she explains.

Hannah has now launched the Gentle Green Soothing Cream in Spain.

“I wanted to launch in Spain because customers in Spain began ordering the cream and we had requests for a local supplier. We love to work with inspiring, creative people and came across just the right person to join our Gentle Green family and we are now launching the cream on the Spanish market.

“We’re passionate about getting the right natural remedies to where they are needed so we’re now looking at launching in Germany.”
