Blue Labelle Skincare was founded by Pascale Edwards-Labelle in 2011
Pascale says… I have a passion for all things natural, especially skincare, & have been making botanical oil blends since 2006 after a very good friend introduced me to the amazing benefits of natural nut, seed, & essential oils. I have been using them on my own skin ever since, & started to make them for family and friends to spread the word, & the love! The amazing feedback I received filled me with joy, along with the wider realisation that more and more people are concerned with what their skincare products contain.
Having a BSc degree in business management I have always been academic and business minded, so after finding myself made redundant during the economic downturn of 2008 I retrained in the art of organic skincare and set up my own business selling the oil blends I had been formulating.
I completed courses with a number of schools, finishing with my diploma and advanced diploma from Formula Botanica in Organic Skincare Science & Formulation. It was also imperative to study cosmetic legislation.
I really enjoyed those courses, and am still constantly researching ingredients, products, innovations, trends and changes in our industry. And the studying never ends, I am currently working on diplomas in aromatherapy and herbalism.
It was actually a friend of mine who came up with the name Blue Labelle, we were brainstorming names over coffee and cake and she came out with it – genius!
After launching, it wasn’t long before I registered all the products with the Vegan Society, showing our customers that no animal ingredients or testing goes on here at Blue Labelle, and never will.
After a couple of years I upgrades all of our plant oil ingredients from natural to organic, this was a natural progression and shows our commitment to sourcing the best quality ingredients grown in ways to minimise damage to the earth and wildlife. Did you know that organic farms are home to 30% more wildlife on average?
I now make all of our products in the workroom of our flagship store – Blue Labelle Boutique, which opened in October 2017. It is wonderful being able to meet all of our customers now from the shop, as well as being able to make the products there on site, I’ll never tire of hearing how great the perfumes are emanating from ‘out back’!
I hope you enjoy our products!
