British Made Cotton Wool and British Made Cotton Buds – Robinson Healthcare

Baby Care – Robinson Healthcare.

I’ve not been able to find UK made cotton wool balls, cotton wool pads or cotton buds in any of the major supermarkets for ages. Salvation is at hand though in the form of Robinson Healthcare.

http://www.robinsonhealthcare.com/Personal-Healthcare/Cotton-Wool/Baby-Care

Most Robinson Healthcare products are produced in their factory in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

Robinson Healthcare’s “Cottontails” and “Soft and Pure” ranges of cotton wool is made in the UK. The range includes:

  • Cotton Pads
  • Cotton Wool Balls
  • Cotton Wool Pleat and Roll
  • Cotton Buds.

Available in local chemists, at Amazon and elsewhere online, via the Robinson Healthcare Telephone Mail Order Service and via their website (in bulk).

No more buying cotton buds made in Greece or wherever from Tesco’s or Waitrose. Will now be buying English made cotton buds 🙂

Robinson foam earplugs are manufactured in China and packed in the UK. Robinson Silicone earplugs are manufactured and packed in the UK.

Some of my favourite British made bars of soap

Five reasons some people prefer bars of soap to liquid soap:

  1. It’s what they’ve always known
  2. Solid soap is more luxurious
  3. The feeling of scouring away the dirt in the shower
  4. Less packaging is better for the planet
  5. The bottles are fiddly.

These are some of my favourite made in the UK soap bars, in no particular order:

Bulldog Skincare for Men – Mostly Made in the UK

Bulldog Skincare for Men | Welcome.

The Bulldog range of men’s grooming products are mostly made in the UK.  Shaving gel, shaving cream, face wash, deodorant, Beard Shampoo and Conditioner, Beard Oil, etc. Whilst most Bulldog products are made in the UK, some are foreign made. For example their foaming shave gel cans are made Belgium, although all the other Bulldog products I have seen are UK made. They do not give country of origin on their website, so you’ll have to ask or look at the products themselves. They say on their website “We work with two main factories here in the UK in Frome, Somerset and in Preston, Lancashire. They make all of our skincare line. We also manufacture a small number of our products through specialist factories outside of the UK where they have unique skills” – https://www.bulldogskincare.com
