             About Green People

history

A pioneering brand established in 1997, Green People is the leader in certified organic body care products. With an extensive range of natural products – shampoos, face creams, sun lotions and body washes to name just a few – it is one of the biggest names in organic beauty in the UK.

However, it was started by a mother simply wanting to help her young daughter:

In 1994, 2-year-old Sandra was suffering from eczema and severe allergies. To relieve her obvious distress and itching, her mother, Charlotte Vøhtz, decided to get to the bottom of the problem.
 

Getting to the root of Sandra's allergies: personal care products

Charlotte discovered that many of Sandra’s skin allergies were linked to chemical-based household and personal care products. This is because exposure to toxic chemicals causes a build-up in the body which can lead to allergies and sensitivities. Although steroid-based treatments were suggested, Charlotte did not want her daughter's skin to be exposed to such harsh chemicals and decided to look for natural skin care products instead.

However, when she started looking into what some of these products contained, she was dismayed to find that even those advertised as 'natural' could contain up to 99.9% synthetic chemicals.

Charlotte says: “From that moment, I realised that we all are children of the chemical age and that man-made chemicals found everywhere, combined with changing dietary habits, profoundly affect us all”.

Did you know?

 

  • 1 in 4 people now suffer from skin sensitivities or allergies
  • 100,000 tonnes of man-made chemicals are used in so-called "natural" and "organic" cosmetic products each year
  • Up to 60% of a substance can be absorbed through the skin
  • Synthetic chemicals entering the skin bypass the liver and go straight into the bloodstream. They are not degraded unlike chemicals in food.
  • Many of these chemicals are known to be harmful in isolation
  • Synthetic chemicals accumulate in the body and are stored in organic and fatty tissues causing a cocktail effect that can lead to eczema, allergies and immune disorders

 

She was so impressed by the difference that her natural methods and home-made natural skin care products had made that she thought she should share her discoveries with others. So Green People was born.

“With a nursing background, knowledge of herbal medicine, and more than 11 years of experience within the pharmaceutical industry, I decided to take action,” she says.
