Mike, a designer, is fascinated by the Science behind the amazing things that plants can do for the skin and Martine who throughout her career in skincare had always cared for her skin with oils and natural products. Together they start Ruby Red.
In 2008 we made our first aromatic bath oil. Spurred on by the success, we set out to understand how best to develop traditional apothecary and add the latest in plant technology to make a visible difference to the skin. Over the next 5 years, we work with specialist formulating chemists and natural perfumers in the UK to develop the range you see today which uses specific plant nutrients and vitamins combined with therapeutic aromatic blends to target specific skin concerns.
In 2012, we launched Revive and Gentle Body Cleanser (Lime), a natural Body Cleanser with a rich foaming lather made from plant ingredients and no synthetic detergent in sight leaving skin feeling soft and moisturised without tightness. Our new cleanser is finalist of the Natural and Organic Award for Best New Natural Beauty and Spa Product.
Demand grows. UK High Street retailers want to see Ruby Red on their shelves. Before long, our products are available at Fortnum and Mason, Harvey Nichols, John Bell and Croyden and many other independents stores.
The Revive and Repair Body Moisturiser (Lime) is added to the range. It's taken 2 years but it's worth it. The moisturiser is made from 9 different plant oils - 6 to nourish and hydrate the skin including Babussu Oil from Paraguay, 3 essentials oil - Lime, Red Mandarin and Coriander and lots of Vitamin C, a great anti-oxidant that also helps with collagen and elastin creation. No Parabens or petrochemicals, synthetic aromas or dyes, perfect for sensitive skin
We are finalist at 5 more Beauty Awards - Freefrom Award, Pure Beauty Award, The Beauty Award, The Beauty Shortlist Award in 2014 and 2015, shortlisted for the Cosmo Awards. Its a busy time.
We launch our Soothing Jasmine range. Our award winning Body Moisturiser is now available in a rich, floral aroma. Our hydrating Body Moisturiser is rich in Vitamin B5 which helps maintain moisture underneath the surface of the skin. This deep moisturising ability helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Our new fully responsive website is here and you can buy Ruby Red on the go - with your mobile and tablet.
Good Hand Creams are hard to find, so when we decided to launch a Hand cream we wanted to make sure it really worked. We've call it "Hand Restoring Moisturiser" because that is exactly what it does. We've used all the latest plant stem technology - Mung Beans stem cell actives to revive and restore the skin, a combination of 7 plant oils nourish and moisturise, a natural emulsifier and preservatives to avoid irritation and a soothing aroma of Neroli ( Orange Blossom) and Parsley. If you have dried hands which are showing signs of sun damage or age spots, this is the cream for you.
