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.

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 🙂

Lush Cosmetics – made locally

Lush have shops on the High Street and an online store selling quality handmade soaps, perfume, bath products, bath bombs, shaving cream, deodorants, make-up, toners, cleansers, moisturisers, toothy tabs, lip balm, spot treatment, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, styling gel, etc. and spa treatments. The Lush factory is in Poole, Dorset, England and I think all their products are made here. Fab. Their philosophy appears to be make local, so in other markets than the UK products may be made elsewhere.

Neal’s Yard make and sell organic natural health & beauty products. They use “high quality organic, natural and wild, plant-based ingredients with a view to safety, efficacy and biodegradability” and they also say on their website ” We use recyclable packaging, sourced wherever possible from the UK to reduce transport miles”. They have a “purpose-built eco-factory in Dorset”. The company was founded in 1981 in Neal’s Yard, near Covent Garden, London. The blue bottles are being made in the UK too now, in Yorkshire. Pretty much everything from Neal’s Yard is made in England. On their Facebook they say “Our Skincare is scientifically formulated and products made in our own Eco factory in Dorset.” On their YouTube channel they say “At Neals Yard Remedies we design, test and make our own products at our eco-headquarters and physic garden in Gillingham, Dorset” and they manufacture the majority of their products at their own factory in Dorset, UK.

The Body Shop – not everything in the Body Shop is made in the UK, but luckily quite a few Body Shop products are still made in the UK

I’ve shopped at the Body Shop for many years and pretty much everything I bought was always made in the UK. However I now notice that pretty much everything I bought the other day was made abroad, except for the deodorant I got which was made in the UK. The rest was made in Hungary, Switzerland or the USA. This is very disappointing and I will now be looking for a new supplier for my wash stuff. If you are buying anything in the Body Shop you will now need to check if it is from the UK or not, if you want to buy British. For the moment at least many products in the Body Shop are still made in the UK.

I asked the Body Shop about manufacturing in the UK and this was their response – “We are a global retailer and as such manufacture our products in many countries” – basically they are saying they have shifted some or all production abroad – what a shame 😦 That said though, if you read the labels carefully, you can still buy British made products in the Body Shop.
