This is a bit of a different blog. Not particularly about anything other than to keep you informed. As you will see from our social media posts on Instagram and Facebook we’re on a manufacturing break. You can not buy anything from our website.
I know right, wtf!
I’m going to keep it nice and brief.
Like a lot of small businesses, Covid changed many things for us. Sourcing necessary items became near on impossible.
We powered on and were rewarded with some pretty darn special Organic Beauty Awards –

BEST TARGETED REPAIR CREAMS – Gold Award: Verissima Soothing Rosehip Moisturiser
Silver Award: Verissima Invigorating Face & Body Scrub
It meant the world, kept us upbeat, and gave us enough fuel to keep going. But, to keep going the way we were was not going to end well. Something had to change. It means I, for now, am hanging up my apron and giving myself time to manage the business, look at other ways that Verissima can power on.
We are planning on moving our manufacturing offsite to a state-of-the-art facility. How darn exciting is that!
This in itself has challenges. However, the opportunities it provides are enormous. Being able to once again have a reliable supply of products for our outlets and our customers is brilliant. It will mean we can expand and that we can provide employment opportunities. Why is change necessary? I’ll leave you to ponder that.
Letting go of the making is massive. But I want to be able to keep our truly natural skincare range available to everyone and I want it to be for the long term.
So, stick with us. I’m not sure how long this is going to take, there’s lots to do. But come over for the ride, and keep in touch on our socials.
