Millions of fabulous people have wonderful and often nostalgic memories of Devon. Centuries of visitors to this great county was the inspiration behind the range names and fragrances, and was behind the notion of ancient Gaelic/Celtic range names to honour the historical popularity of this great place.
Devon is a truly beautiful county with a long history and great varied landscape. It was difficult to limit the ranges to eight to begin with, but the inspirations for these were: Memories of sea breezes gentling rustling through grasses; that day caught out in the rain; spending quality time with a loved one, attending a family wedding; visiting beautiful gardens; climbing through woods; having an amazing nights sleep after an active day; celebrating the festive season with family and friends, or getting in touch with your inner explorer with an Army style trek across Dartmoor.
Our products are handmade in small batches at our premises in Yelverton, Devon.
At Scent From Devon our soaps are all handmade using the traditional cold process soap making method. We do not use pre-made soap bases. We do not use Palm Oil or chemical irritants such as sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate, parabens or petrolatum.
We test all our products on helpful family members – never on animals.
From the beginning we have set out to provide our local employees with the Real Living Wage.
We provide luxury products. We are part of the movement to reducing packaging, which is why not all of our items are provided inside boxes. One day there won’t be any wasteful product packaging at all. When we post our beautiful products we only use biodegradable and/or recyclable and/or reused materials.
But of course…
